Senior Project Manager Interview

Application Details

I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at eBay Enterprise in January 2010.

Interview Details

Most of the details were handled by a third party recruiter. To the level they could control things, I think it went pretty smoothly. The recruiter sent an exhaustive list of pre-interview questions. It took me hours to complete those. This list was clearly designed to be used in a live interview and not a mail based on the follow up questions in each section. Some of them made no sense based on how I answered part one. So by the end I was saying, "if you want the answer to this essay question, you will have to give me an interview." And I guess that worked, because I did get an interview. The first round of the interview was a series of one-on-one meetings with technical people who asked me tough questions. At the end of round one I met with the person who would be my manager. He said he liked my answers and offered me some of the free coffee they have, but I declined as I was exhausted from all the questions. I was selected to move to round two of the interview where I met with a VP and a consultant. I directly asked them to comment on the culture of the company. I got very limited information as you might expect. In any case, I was offered the job the next day and accepted. I asked for two weeks because I did not want to start immediately. They gave me the time I requested. Despite their knowing I would start in more than two weeks, they did not have a desk ready for me when I arrived. I camped out in a conference room while they built my cube. There was no training or preparation to speak of. I was left to figure out everything on my own. Unless you are very curious and tenacious, you will not be off to an easy start here. A colleague likened their onboarding process to waterboarding.

Negotiation Details
Ask for the moon. Ask for $10K more than you want. You are very likely to get it as turn over is high and they are genearally desperate for employees.
