    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PayPal (San Jose, CA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Was contacted by the recruiter to set up the technical phone call interview. The interviewer was the coolest guy I've ever been interviewed by. He asked me only on the current project I'm working on because the position is very specific to it. It went really good, and two business days later I got a mail from the recruiter saying that they'll be offering me the position.

    Interview Questions

    • Unexpected was that I wasn't asked any typical 'Interview' question. It was mainly on the specific project I've worked on, which pretty much tells everything I know that could help them.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    eBay is the one of the highest paying company to their interns. :P You don't have to negotiate. So consider yourself lucky if you get into eBay. :)
