    Software Engineer Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at PayPal in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by the recruiter to set up the technical phone call interview. The interviewer was the coolest guy I've ever been interviewed by. He asked me only on the current project I'm working on because the position is very specific to it. It went really good, and two business days later I got a mail from the recruiter saying that they'll be offering me the position.

    Interview Questions
    • Unexpected was that I wasn't asked any typical 'Interview' question. It was mainly on the specific project I've worked on, which pretty much tells everything I know that could help them.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    eBay is the one of the highest paying company to their interns. :P You don't have to negotiate. So consider yourself lucky if you get into eBay. :)

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at PayPal in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Consisted of 4 rounds for 3 hrs. Each interviewer asked different type of questions like programming puzzles, write code samples. But interviewers seem they are not interested in the interview

    Interview Questions
    • n= 20
      for (i=0;i<n; i--)
         print i

      the question was to change or replace a only one character in for loop to print 20 times.
