Content Manager Interview

Content Manager
San Jose, CA

I applied online and the process took 3+ months - interviewed at PayPal in August 2012.

Interview Details – Following 2 phone interviews, they invited me to fly to San Jose (on my own dime, which I had no qualms about) for a final 3 hour interview.

The interview began with me meeting one on one with a member, before we were joined by a second person. After, the first person left, and so forth, until I met with the entire team. The interview itself was challenging but pleasant and I received positive feedback from all members. When I left, I felt encouraged by the members to consider myself as "in a good position" to receive an offer. I was told they wanted to move quickly and I was very excited about the possibility of a new job and moving to CA.

The day after the interview, I sent an email to thank them (no response), then another a week later to discover if a decision had been made. The only response I heard back was,

A few weeks."

And that's it. Not only wasn't there an offer, I've never heard back from them since. All polite and timely (once a month) follow-up emails have been ignored. I finally emailed another on the team and didn't hear anything from her either.

I am pretty frustrated and disappointed over the situation. I understand not landing the position, but to never contact a candidate that was encouraged to fly out for an interview, to be flat out ignored, is pretty unprofessional and I would expect more from such a large company.

Content Manager Interview

Content Manager
Singapore (Singapore)

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at PayPal.

Interview Details – HR arranged an initial phone interview with the hiring manager. Thereafter, I was invited to sit for writing and editing test. This was followed by a one-on-one interview with the hiring manager and 4 other people from Marketing, Sales, eBay content and HR.

The interview setting was casual and friendly. Mainly, they were interested in a candidate that offers not only the right skills and experience, but also attitude and whether or not they will fit into the culture.

Negotiation Details – The offer was non-negotiable. However, the company offers many other perks such as a casual environment, flexi work hours, comprehensive medical coverage and more.
