Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in King of Prussia, PA
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at eBay Enterprise (King of Prussia, PA) in June 2011.

Interview

- I applied on the GSI web site
- they called me within a few days for a phone interview with the manager
- the manager screened me on the phone for about 20 minutes
- then they arranged 3 hour in person interviews
- there were 4 sets of interviews. First was with HR- brief, explained company policies. Next was with 3 technical people at once. Next was with a non-technical project manager, and the last was with the hiring manager.
- they were quite "brutal" in the interviews - they did NOT ask a lot of hard questions, they were just relentless on me and just never seemed satisfied that I would do a good job, despite me being overqualified for the job (I have 20 years experience). I answered every question well, but they were just relentless.

Interview Questions

  • Draw a diagram on the whiteboard of GSI's item-ordering structure (this actually had nothing to do with the skills needed for the job)   1 Answer

Reasons for Declining

- they left me with a bad impression from being so hard on me in the interviews. It seems like it would be an agonizing place to work.

    Interview

    There will be technical phone interview first. After few days they called for a face to face interview. They ask details question based on the resume and you will meet developers, team lead, mangers and director. Seems to take decision quickly.
