Senior Product Manager Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at eBay (Bellevue, WA).
Had a friend submit my resume internally. Heard back within a week from a recruiter. What followed for the next 6-7 weeks was 1 HR interview, 1 in-person informational with the hiring manager, 5 more in-person interviews with the team over the next few weeks before a final round each with the hiring manager and VP. Was made an offer the next day after the final VP meeting.
- Nothing too unexpected Answer Question
Yes, negotiation was mainly in terms of increasing the 'equity make good'. No room for base pay or level bump negotiations

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at eBay (San Jose, CA).
Saw an ad on linkedin, followed up, was contacted within a week. Had a round of phone interviews a week later. Onsite Interview two weeks later. Had an offer extended to me two weeks after that. Negotiated to higher grade level
- 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
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.
Senior Product Manager InterviewDeclined OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
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.
- 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).
Senior Product Manager InterviewNo OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at eBay in June 2012.
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.
