    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tencent.

    Interview

    Abysmal. Seems like there are communication issues between their main HQ in China and US office in Palo Alto. I was instructed to meet local HR after arriving but they were not present. Interviewers showed up late. One of the interviewers was not very professional. He was literally picking his nose while looking at me and asking questions. Other times he was mostly just staring at my resume, as if he didn't even read it. It was hard for me to take him seriously after that. Also, after paying for my own flight and lodging for the interview, I was told to submit a W9 with my SSN# via their insecure and non-encrypted email network for reimbursement. This was never communicated and it really left a bad impression. They literally just copy pasted something from the IRS website and stated that these were the rules without really understanding or explaining the process. This is bad business practice as you would be taxed and your personal information exposed. I feel like a 1 hour interview could have been done over the phone, instead of going through these troubles. If you decide to interview with these folks, make sure you request travel up front, as their communication and process is pretty haphazard.

    Interview Questions

    • It sounded like they were more interested in getting insider information from other companies, and not really asking relevant questions to the job or explaining what they were doing.   Answer Question
