    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at eBay in November 2016.

    Interview

    Got an interview at the campus recruiting event. Passed the interview. Then talked to the HR on a phone call. Then passed a skype interview with a product manager, and finally failed at the second Skype interview with a senior product manager. No behaviorals, surprisingly. The first Skype interview asked about resume and basic pm questions. The second Skype interview was intense on PM questions, like what do you think of this eBay product, why was it designed that way, how would you improve it. Also got asked if I know any machine learning algorithm.

    Interview was fine. I was told the order of the interview and assessment in advance by Vanessa but when I arrived, the schedule was different. No follow up from the interview, 2 weeks later. Trying to get feedback is a nightmare. Appears that they want to hire a certain personality.
