    Network Enginees Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at eBay (Miami, FL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I had a couple of preliminary interviews to screen my quailifications. I had a technical screen scheduled. The person who scheduled the interview set it for a 11:30 AM but did not specify the time zone. A reply to confirm EST or PST was ignored. The interviewer called at a time that wasn't scheduled bumping another interview which had been previously scheduled. I should have told the interviewer that I could not talk at that time. When I said he called at the wrong time, the interviewer was arrogant and told me he could not fit an interview in at another time that day. So I proceeded which was a bad idea because I had to bump the person who origially had the time slot. The interview went badly. He asked a couple of questions which I got right but he told me I didn't get. A company that was supposedly global did not seem to understand the differences in time zones and how to allow for that or that even to get the time right. He was annoyed when I had to put the second person on hold to ask to reschedule. I thought the interviewer was arrogant, patronizing, and just plain rude.He explained at the beginning of the interview that he was just evaluating my skill level. I think he was just purposing trying to sabotage the interview. I was thrown off by the overt hositility. He asked questions that were acceptable difficulty I admit but by his tone, even if I had got every question right he would have screened me out. He explained that Ebay was a fast-paced company yada yada yada however for all its global stature not being able to tell the difference between time zones to me indicates that maybe a simple lesson in being able to understand time zones doesnt really reflect the cache that they claimed to have. The inerviewer was rude, impatient, intolerant and other words which would not be prudent to write online. I got from the first minute that he was not going to be helpful in the hiring process. So if this is a measure of the company a big sign anyhow that the work environment would be horrible.

    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.

    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

    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.
