Software Engineer - Front End Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
No Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at eBay (San Jose, CA) in May 2016.

Interview

Standard process: Screening questions followed by Technical Phone Screen (Collabedit) followed by onsite interviews (5 interviews, 1 hour each).

All the interviewers were very polite and helpful. Questions are intended not to stump a candidate but to actually access the skills. I faltered on some implementations due to lack of coding preparedness (without an IDE - on whiteboard) and that may have cost me the position. Adequate coding practice and understanding of important concepts in JavaScript (Closure, Hoisting, etc.) can go a long way in helping crack onsite interviews. Although eBay did not make an offer, the overall experience was very good.

    Front End Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at eBay (San Jose, CA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Got HR call through an open event conducted at the company. HR said the interview would be 90 mins and a virtual white board where there would be coding involved. The interviewer calls and asks basic questions regarding HTML (??) , JavaScript. I offer to show him some code samples of mine online but he refuses saying coding is only during in person interview( the HR said this interview will be particularly coding). It was like they were asking questions from some question bank. He hangs up after 30 mins saying someone will be calling me soon. I think its the HR but no, another interviewer calls me. He speaks almost the same way. Nothing about the company or what they do. He sees my code sample and asks me what use is of this. Both of them were using speakerphone so was very low (though the first interviewer rectified it midway). Later HR calls me and says I am not selected. That was expected.
