    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at eBay (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    Very pleasant, and genuinely enjoyed talking to my hiring manager. Actually, it was surprisingly non-technical considering the role I was interviewing for. Mainly just background and personality questions to get a feel for culture fit I guess.

    Human Resources Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at eBay (Draper, UT) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Very casual environment. When they say "Come well-rested, dress comfortably, and be yourself," take it to heart. Plan on dressing up a pair of jeans, or whatever you are comfortable in. Look nice, but know that if you are hired there, it'a a jeans and T-shirt kind of life. It was a one-on-one interview, although the interviewer said that there are usually two eBay employees there. I enjoyed the conversation and straightforwardness of the interview. He gave me a clear picture of what the role consisted of, asked if I need clarification, presented the interview questions, and allowed me time to ask any other questions. The brief eBay tour was nice. Be happy and interact with those you pass in the halls, office. etc.

    Interview

    The hiring process was great. It was only one phone interview, and during the interview, I was asked a couple of behavior and technical questions. The interview was about 30 mins, and it went pretty well. So, I got the offer for the summer intern position at the end.

    Customer Solutions Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at eBay (Austin, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Started with phone interview. Then asked to come in for personal interview. Given a tour of facility then sat with current rep to listen in on incoming calls. After, had to take simulation test where you were asked to complete certain task asked by the caller using their system. Having only sat with a rep for 30 min, I was not paying so much attention to have she made necessary changes but more to the call itself. BIG MISTAKE! Being unfamiliar with how their system worked, I did not pass the minimum score they require to move on to the next interview phase.

    Interview

    Came in for an intensive round of interviews - meeting with 6 people over 5 hours. Two of the interviews were late for the interview. One of the people I interviewed with was clearly not interested in meeting with me and was playing "gotcha." She wanted the role and was trying to trip me up
