    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PayPal (Vellore (India)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    It was a bad experience overall. I answered all the questions asked and they still rejected me. they asked questions on OOPS and basic algorithm optimization. I do not know what they expect from a candidate and they even seemed satisfied with my answers. And as usual, the main problem with interviews are, you never know where you go wrong. I have been rejected before for giving a solution that is better than what the interviewer could come up with and have been rejected on that basis.
