Test Automation Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at eBay Enterprise in April 2014.
Interview Details – Received e-mail within a few days. Successful HR interview, passed info to hiring manager, was told I'd hear back early next week. After letting that week pass I called for follow-up. Two days later I got a reply - a "we're going with another candidate" form letter. I found that weak.
Interview Question – I knew nothing about the domain or the tools they use. However, an hour on wikipedia to look up the domain and tools allowed me to provide relevant related experience. It was enough to get me through the initial interview. Answer Question

Marketing Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at eBay Enterprise.
Interview Details – One of the strangest interviews in which I've been involved.
My buddy works there and after a couple emails to and from HR, they brought me in for an interview.
I met with the hiring manager and things seemed to go really well. I had about 90% of the qualifications in the interviewer seemed interested and engaged. We spoke for about 25 minutes; a good introductory meeting.
Then...I met with the HR generalist. Yes, AFTER meeting with the guy who was actually hiring for the position.
She was harried and unfocused as she entered the room. She barely looked into my eyes and gave me one of those limp handshakes. She admitted to me that she didn't have time to review this job posting, which was a bit unsettling. This is the head of HR for the company, by the way.
She gave my resume a cursory glance and proceeded to ask me rapid-fire skills questions ("Do you have 5+ years of SQL?", "How would you rate you Office skills?"). She looked up at me, maybe two times. There was very little interaction, throughout the process.
Her portion of the interview lasted 10 minutes, tops.
After that brief Q&A session I felt uneasy, after previously feeling very confident with the guy who actually knew about the requirements for the position.
Here's the kicker: When I arrived home from the interview, there was an email from the HR person waiting for me, saying that I would not be offered the job! Whoa, eBay, how about some professional courtesy? How about some consideration? At least let me get my hopes up.
It was a subtly condescending letter, too; saying something like, "maybe you should apply to something that better matches your skill set and experience," as if I had never heard of or experienced any of the things that were talked about in the interview.
eBay/GSI Commerce: please instruct your HR people to respect all applicants, regardless of their qualifications. Oh, and maybe you should have an HR representative speak to your interviewee, first!
Interview Question – Can't remember. I think they were all answered appropriately. Answer Question
Studio Producer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at eBay Enterprise in May 2013.

Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at eBay Enterprise in June 2013.
Interview Details – Recruiter was poised and professional. She knew about the role and genuinely excited. I met 4 people in my first interview that had to be rescheduled due to a client meeting. Each person I met was great--smart personable and busy. Position was filled, but I'll apply again.
Interview Question – I thought the questions were fair, discussions were comfortable Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at eBay Enterprise in October 2009.
Interview Details – The interview process seemed to go well. There was a phone screen which, in retrospect, should have been a warning. There was only one formal interview; it was probably the easiest interview I've ever had. Because I was trying to escape a nightmare job, I asked if I could come in for a day and spend some time with them. They said yes. I came in for a day and had a pretty good time. I doubt they'll let anyone do that these days.
Interview Question – No difficult questions. The standards are low. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Ask for more money. I went through a recruiter that was a very bad negotiator. Later I found out that a co-worked made $50,000 more than me. I wasn't happy.
Operations Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at eBay Enterprise in July 2011.
Interview Details – Had 3 interviews, quick and easy process. Submitted resume and was contacted with in 3 days. Started the position 3 weeks later
Interview Question – cant remember, nothing too crazy Answer Question
Negotiation Details – a few emails back and forth
Software Engineer Intern Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university - interviewed at eBay Enterprise in March 2012.
Interview Details – Take a bus to the office in King of Prussia,PA, spend more than one hour without any reimbursement. And then they told me one of 2 interviewers is out of town and only one interviewer that day. And that interviewer was busy. The interviewer process was also very quick and keep on ask whether you have similliar projects experience for the position. At the end of interviewer process, hr told me would get the result several weeks later. At the end, I spent one more hour back home. Right now, it is about half a year and didn't get any reply. It's wasting my time for that interview and it is most terrible interview.
Interview Question – Do you have any simillar project experience to persuade me to offer you the position View Answer
