I worked at PayPal full-time (More than 5 years)
I loved working for them and only left due to issues with a certain supervisor.
In my almost 6yrs with them I was in 3 different departments & received even training for a 4th at some point.
They do 10hrs shift which, which you don't feel so much during your shift, however it leaves you with 3 days of weekend which is great.
You have 1hr break [30min paid lunch & 15min in the morning & in the afternoon that are unpaid each]
They make sure you receive a proper training so you should make sure you learn it as you do need it later on during your work.
Salary & Benefits are good.
If you have a problem they try to help you as best as they can, within their means.
flexibility of hours sometimes depends on the supervisor you have.
I had one that allowed me to start at 5am so that i could beat the traffic as I was living quite a drive away, but my last supervisor wouldn't allow me to start at least at 6 even though this was back office, which increased my traveling times at some point to 3hrs one trip instead of 1.5hrs
Advice to Management
there should be the option to be paid every two weeks again, as it used to be until 2009, instead only every 4 weeks

I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at PayPal (Blanchardstown (Ireland)) in February 2012.
I met PayPal at CareerZoo, I was contacted personally about 2 weeks later and offered an interview the next day (I had to push it out a few days due to my schedule). I started with a phone interview in German, a technical test over HTML, CSS, etc., then a single interview with the manager and technical lead for the team together in the room at the same time. I would say my on-site time was under 3 hours.
Reasons for Declining
Salary was half of what I was making.
