New Grad Software Engineer Interview

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at eBay Inc. in February 2014.

Interview Details

I got referred by a current employee and was set up for a technical phone screen. It was just bad. I hated the interviewer- he was mean and kind of impatient. Didn't let me finish my answer/didnt interpret my answers well. He asked a variety of questions from data structures, algorithms, and pointers. Then he went over my resume to ask questions about a project I did in school.
