    Interview

    I interviewed at PayPal credit in Timonium, MD. It started with a tour of the newly renovated office, which was very nice. Then we went into a small conference room with 4 other people. They asked me about my resume, then asked me to do coding questions on MacBook connected to a TV. I thought I did pretty well, but I did not hear back.

On this call the interviewer was not friendly and did not let me know if my answers were heading in the correct direction. She was unhelpful and never gave any positive feedback whatsoever even though I now know some of my answers were correct.

AFTER the hiring manager if you get the job they will have you go and sit in the room with HR.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at PayPal.

    Interview

    I received and email from a recruiter telling me they are hiring bilingual customer solutions teammates. I sent him my resume and was scheduled for a phone interview. The day and time the interview was going to take place the recruiter never called. I emailed them back and they told me they are going to look into why i didn't receive a call that day and that they would reschedule my interview. fast forward couple off days and i haven't received any updates on the situation. Very unprofessional company, i'm not sure if it was just that specific recruiter or the company as a whole.
