Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at eBay.

Interview

Recruiter reached out to setup TPS. I believe I did pretty well in the TPS and interviewer looked satisfied with the solution, But like others have experienced here, the recruiter reached out the same evening saying hiring manager has decided to move forward with the other candidate. It did not make any sense, waste of 45 minutes. Most likely they are just setting up interviews for H1B / labor certifications. Stay away from interviewing at eBay

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at eBay.

    Interview

    Contacted by HR. Then followed by a technical interview. Went pretty well on the technical interview. Even the interview said he hopes to see me in the future at the end. But only to get a rejection saying they chose other candidates on the same day of the technical interview. Completely surprise and a waste of time. If they already know my background does not match, why bothered set up a tech screen? But I never wanted to go to a company that is going down the decade anyway...

    Phone interview with HR and then phone interview with manager, nothing fancy.
    I was asked about my current role and was asked a few client server questions, It was pretty fair.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at eBay (San Jose, CA (US)) in December 2018.

    Interview

    I applied for the position on Ebay's career site. Within a week I was contacted by a recruiter who described the role and the interview process. Within a couple of days after the initial contact with the recruiter, I was invited to do a phone interview using a shared online editor. I did spectacularly on the phone screen. The interviewer told me on the spot that I will be called for an onsite interview.
    Within a couple of days after the phone screen, I was contacted by the recruiter (a different one from the original recruiter) who introduced me to a lady who was in charge of setting up the interview and other logistics. The onsite interview was held mid-December, 2018. Once again I did really well in the multiple onsite interviews.

    However, it has been almost a month and I still haven't received any feedback about the result of the interview. I have sent out emails to each of the three recruiting personnel who participated in setting up interviews, but none of them have even acknowledged the receipt of my emails.

    This leads me to conclude that I was not a "culture-fit" since I am a middle aged woman. They want me to just go away without their having to say so explicitly. This is because they don't have the courage to do this since I did extremely well in the interviews.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at eBay (San Jose, CA (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I got a phone call from the recruiter who mentioned that eBay is their direct client. The recruiter herself asked some basic Core Java questions. Then they send me a email to solve a technical question and write up about my experience in cloud computing.
