    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at eBay Inc. in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    HR emailed regarding the next day interview. Since there was less than 24 hrs notice for the off-campus interview, I asked for clarification for the interview process. HR provided me incorrect information, claiming the interview would mostly be behavior/ fit questions. The interviewer called the next day and was at least 30 minutes late in calling. I emailed HR to figure out what had happened. When the interviewer called, he spent what felt like forever on describing the job. He only asked one question about my resume and it was not behavioral. What surprised me, especially considering time, is that he asked me a case question about Amazon and then asked me more technical questions about online loyalty marketing.

    Interview Questions
    • The question was tricky in the fact that it was technical to the job and I was not expecting a case question at all. It was about testing your understanding of how much online commerce data can be estimated of the competitor based directly on one online ad.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at eBay Inc. in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Most difficult and unrewarding interview that I have ever had. I spent an entire day at the office (7 interviews that lasted 45 minutes each).

    eBay is a company of VERY smart people who don't particularly like their jobs. No one was enthusiastic about their roles and it seemed as if everyone was unsure of the direction of the company.

    I thought I nailed the interviews - good background for the position, top school, etc... The bottom line, I don't think I was a fit with the team. Despite the fact that the role was client facing, everyone seemed pretty geeky. Anyways, it worked out because two weeks later I got a offer from Google.

    I would stay away.

    The process took 1 week - interviewed at eBay Inc. in May 2008.

    Interview Details

    The interview started out very organized. The recruiter/HR department was courtegous and explained the position well. The phone interview with the hiring manager was good. Spent about 30 minutes going over the questions. The on-site interview was just ok and didn't give a good impression of the company culture.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at eBay Inc. in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    Probably one of the most taxing I've ever been through. I had a take-home skills test to do, and I went in for two rounds of in-person interviews and spent 3+ hours each time. I was asked to give a portfolio presentation to a room full of people -- a first for me in this type of position. All went well and I had a verbal offer, but the day before I was to receive the written offer, hiring was frozen.

    Interview Questions
    • Not a specific question, but being asked to defend my choices and reasoning on the take-home skills test.   Answer Question

    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at eBay Inc. in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Overall, I wouldn't say the interview was super difficult, but it was different from what I was accustomed to. They like to ask questions related to finding out how you think and approach things (trying to understand your thought process). They hardly ask any typical questions you'd expect, and more hypothetical ones (i.e. how would you determine the number of burrito shops in a certain city?). It seemed like they cared more about your overall intelligence versus your actual experience.

    • How would you go about determining how many burrito shops were in your home town, without access to the Internet or any resources?   Answer Question
