Marketing Interview

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

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at eBay (San Jose, CA (US)).

Interview

I was essentially told the main challenge of the role and I was tasked with coming up with a powerpoint presentation of no more then 6-8 slides showing how I would handle the problem. Basically what my strategic plan would be if I got the role. I had about 10 days to work on it (worked on it at nights when I got off my current job and on the weekends). When I came in for interviews I had about 8 - 30 minute interviews and at the end of the day I had to present my strategic plan.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at eBay (London, England) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Applied for a role after seeing it on LinkedIn. Had first call with HR, who then promised to confirm date of interview. And it all went downhill from there.

    - 2.5 month long interview process, very slow, primarily due to time lag between arranging subsequent rounds
    - HR personnel here are shocking! I dealt with atleast 5 different people. No phone numbers provided either, so felt very impersonal
    - No updates whatsoever through the process. Even when contacted to check, HR ignore emails and don’t bother to respond
    - After all of this, had to chase for an update to be told weeks later the role had been withdrawn. Now I know this happens, but the right thing to do is inform candidates who have invested time, effort and energy into an extensive and drawn out interview process

    The business people I met were lovely, but honestly the HR needs sorting out. They are the first interaction with prospective candidates, and they need to be acting in a more professional and thoughtful manner.

    It’s as much about the candidate liking the company, as it is the other way around!

    Interview

    Applied online and got an interview.
    It was not too simple in the beginning since they have specific wants in the resume and stuff
    however, I managed and was able to get the position.
    During the interveiw they asked me a few behavioural questions and they also asked me what i did in the past internships. I had to say what kind of leadership roles i took during my past internship and they also asked what were my weaknesses during that time.
    Overall interview was not too bad, maybe because it was for a random marketing intern position.
    Overall good,and i had a great experience working at ebay.
