    The process took 3 weeks. Secured an on-campus interview at a career fair. Had a 45-minute interview with a recruiter where I spoke about projects and was asked to analyse a couple eBay pages and say what I liked/did not like about them. Spoke two weeks later with my to-be manager over the phone for about 30 minutes, and had a couple higher-level object-oriented programming questions. Did not have anything too technical. Heard back a week later.

    Interview Details

    There were 3 rounds of interviews after the written round. The written round was pretty difficult with time taking questions. There were 50 questions to be done in a span of 60 minutes. There were 2 technical interviews. Tech-1 involved a software case analysis. A real time problem was given and code had to be written.

    Editor Interview

    Interview Details

    I found their handling of the initial application process very unprofessional. I did a two-hour screening test for eBay. It was administered in Germany for a job based in the UK. I was initially asked to do the test between 8am and 6pm within 2 days of asking, despite the fact that I was working at the time. I was able to rearrange it for the evening.

    The woman administering the test kept me waiting for half an hour from the agreed start time for the two hour timed test, which they emailed to me.

    They never sent even a form rejection after the test, despite my taking the time to arrange to do a two-hour test at short notice. Even when I emailed (politely!) to follow up, they never bothered with the courtesy of a reply.

    Software Engineer I Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at eBay Inc. in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer was really cool. The company as a whole is cool. They want people who knows data structures and thorough knowledge on programming. He asked me to write a code on printing the duplicates in an array of 20 nos. I was supposed to use data structures I guess but I did it another way. I am a ECE student and I was not well aware of data structure stuff and all. Still the interview was pretty comfy and I enjoyed it.
