    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at eBay (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interviews were smooth. Good mix between computer science interviews and behavioral ones. First a phone screen with recruiter, then a phone call with algorithm questions. Then 2 skype interviews, focused on my specific domain of expertise. Finally, 3 interviews on-site. They were pretty quick to keep me up to date and give me feedback.

    The process was rather quick I was brought into the office and interviewed by a panel of 3 people. I don't mind that this was the process, but it would have been nice to walk in and not be blind sided by the entire situation. I heard back that same afternoon and got the job.
