    Interview Questions
    • Interview panel is a random crap shoot as they rely on the hiring manager to suggest folks who can interview you. If any of them are unavailable or in need of substitute, they grab anyone really.

      With that said, no guideline when it comes to interview questions, if you know your stuff and show vision you'll have a good chance. Really can't fake this.
        Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    My advice is, find out what grade level you are offered the job at, and try to get one level higher if possible. Between 23-25 this may be possible, any higher I doubt you can.

    Interview Details

    I submitted a resume online, and received a callback from the internal recruiter.
    Overall the process was very professional, and the people are very personable and genuine.
    The recruiter wanted to make sure I was really going to relocate to the Bay Area.
    Next was a phone interview with the hiring manager. That focused on clarifying my experience and how it was relevant.
    Next after a few weeks (due to scheduling) I went onsite for a day of interviews - five meeting total.

    Interview Questions
    • Best question was "what work accomplishment are you most proud and why"?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Not enough in the offer to justify relocation. Be sure when looking at Bay Area (if you are not already there) the real cost of living, relative to the offer (which may look rich at first).

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at eBay Inc. in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied to position via employee referral and got a response from the recruiter within a week. Had 3 phone interviews - first with recdruiter, then with the hiring manager and finally with the hiring manager's manager. However, after the phone interviews, I had to repeatedly contact the recruiter several times to know the outcome. I was told that the recruiter was away on vacation and eventually the recruiter informed me of the outcome.
