The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at PayPal (London, England)

Interview

I applied and interviewed during the Covid lock down. It was all done remotely from home and it went very smoothly. The HR rep who was looking after me made sure I was updated on my progress on a regular basis. I had 2 interviews and a case study. The process took about 8 weeks but I was onboarded pretty swiftly after that.

Interview Questions
  • Relevant case study and previous experience.

Got reached out by the recruiter via email to setup a phone screen. Phone screen was just to get a high level overview of the technologies I am familiar with. After that, I had a virtual interview, which was Spring Boot heavy. Then I was ghosted.

Interview

The process started fine with a quick call with Recruiter and other PM from the team. So far, so good. I was given a take home assignment I spent my whole weekend to present on my Onsite. Never doing a free service to solve solutions for the company. Case presentation+ 2 PM interviews + Engg interview Recruiter didn’t give results until I followed up twice. They said the role is for a high level, and they are waiting for a new opening. No response from the recruiter ever since.
