    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PayPal in February 2018.

    Interview

    I received an email from a recruiter to schedule a phone interview with the hiring manager. I had the interview a week later which lasted about 35 minutes. About a week later, the recruiter reached out to me again to schedule a second round of two back to back 45 minute Skype interviews.

    I was told in the email asking me to do a second round that interviews would be behavioral. When I was emailed the confirmation email a day before the interview, I asked for more clarification on what to expect from each interviewer but neither the recruiter nor recruiting coordinator responded to me.

    The day of the interview, only about 10% of the questions for each interview were behavioral, so of course I went into the interviews quite unprepared. Whether this was due to poor communication or an intentional stress test I don't know.

    I did not receive any further contact from the recruiter after the second round and was only sent an automated email 2 weeks later stating that the they were no longer reviewing applicants.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PayPal (San Jose, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process just took a week. Had two phone interviews on the same day. However one phone interview was cancelled due to interviewers unavailability. But the recruiting staff made sure to keep me in the loop regarding next interview round and the feedback. The interview process was smooth and it was pretty much about my previous internship and projects on my resume! After the interview, received an offer on the same day!

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Offer was beyond expectation so didn't really negotiate!

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PayPal (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Interviewed on campus. The interviewer went over a basic resume review, followed by some behavior questions and whiteboard coding. The interviewer was nice, and gave several hints through the problem. Thought the entire interview went very well, but was disappointed to never hear back.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at PayPal.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me to schedule and it was a pretty standard interviewing procedure. I was sleep deprived and did not do that well. The interviewer seemed a little bit bored.
