    Community Development Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at eBay (San Jose, CA (US)).

    Interview

    I was hired by email, ICQ and one phone call. I was asked to submit a resumé. I didn't apply for the job. I came to their attention by posting on one of the chat boards and interacting with eBay users. I started out in SafeHarbor, the original fraud investigation unit. After two years, I was moved to Community Development.

    Interview Questions

    • Would I be willing to take the job, work from home on my computer. I worked "remote" for almost all of my over nine years of employment.   5 Answers

    Negotiation

    This was in 1997, when the company was very young, and I was just astonished to be asked to consider the job. It didn't occur to me to "negotiate." I worked for the company until April 2007 when I retired.

    Lawyer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at eBay.

    Interview

    Not very technical...focuses more on behaviours and is pretty straightforward. Its more about fit than anything else. You will likely meet 4-7 people and it will take many weeks.

    Interview

    I appied online. It took about 30 days to get call from HR. They scheduled a 40 mins technical phone interview with me. The interviewer is not responsive to my answers. Even though I was pretty sure some of the answers of the questions, but it still made me really nervous.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    It was very ad-hoc due to some informal timing. It started with a career fair at my university. I had a screening interview, and then applied online. A few weeks later I was contacted to come on campus for interviews. I met with a couple of teams in platforms and services, and had some excellent conversations with the managers.
