    Is that really how you want to spend your interviewer’s time? With gossip?

    A VP leaving could be a bad sign for the company. If you aren't concerned about it you probably have your head in the sand

    Are you sure that's the only reason you may have failed the interview?

    unless you’re interviewing with the estaff, it’s probably above their pay grade.

      Do you have a source for this or are you just trying to spread rumors?

      “Rumors that Mr. Ge acted inappropriately earlier circulated anonymously through an internal app used by Airbnb employees, called Blind, and then were posted on Chinese social media sites.”

      So what journalists say is ground truth ? You always believe what you read on the internet ?

      Well since you work there why don’t you ask some China office colleagues and help enlighten the rest of us

    Interviewee asked to the interviewer in one of the FB interview.. "what are the issue with the FB culture and how would you improve the FB culture".. I thought this was weird as the question came from interviewee.. I think VP of China question was valid one..

    When did you interview? I was recently in a panel for someone that failed their CV. Strongly disagreed with the reason for the decision, and advocated as best I could, but was definitely not related to this question.

    This is a legitimate question, and the official answer is "left to pursue other opportunities"...although Airbnb people could be a bit sensitive at times.
