    Front End Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at eBay (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview with 2 developers. The following day I was contacted by HR to go on-site for a 60-minute in-person interview. HR took almost a week to get back to me with a date and time for the interview.

    The in-person interview started late as the interviewers could not find an open boardroom for the interview. We walked around the office for about 15 minutes before finding a free boardroom. The first part of the interview was with a senior front end developer and the manager of the developer group. They asked general get-to-know-you questions. Both interviewers told me that they just got back from vacation and had no idea that they were to interview me. They both said that they still had "vacation brain".

    The second part of the interview was with 2 JavaScript developers. It was rushed as we now only had about 20 minutes to do a technical exercise. I was asked to wire up a react app to redux to render some data. I was thrown off, nervous, and under pressure due to the time constraints and the pressure of having 2 people watch every keystroke that I made. I got through it with coaching from the devs.
    I did not feel good about my chances after the interview. I have not heard back from HR.
