I have been working at eBay full-time (More than 3 years)
Diverse & Inclusion
Good Work/life balance
No career progression
Lack of strategies
I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at eBay (Richmond upon Thames, England) in September 2015.
First I was contacted by the engineer I send my CV to. After that,
I had an interview by phone with a lead software engineer that was mostly about my experience.
Then, a technical interview by another software eng. This was followed by a coding challenge I could do in some days and e-mail.
I was then flied into London where I was asked to be with them for a whole day.
They will evaluate you like you were a software engineer already, expect the same experience and knowledge. They don't see an internship as a place where you're there to learn. So, if you don't have experience working in a regular company, don't apply.
It took really long time. I spent so many hours preparing, doing the coding challenge, etc to be rejected after the on-site interview.
I believe that if you don't fit the 'agile is everything to me' culture you won't be selected (they even name the role 'AGILE software engineer')
