    I interviewed 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.

    Panelist With Bloated Ego Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Bangalore
    Anonymous Employee in Bangalore
    Application Details

    interviewed at eBay Inc. in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    - The interview panelists are more interested in flaunting their knowledge.
    - HR is absolutely pathetic, they don't even bother to inform you the schedule and feedback.
    - In between each round, you need to specifically call HR and ask my rounds are over, what next now. Then the HR is going to tell you whether to wait or go for next round. I expected it otherway round. Isn't this HR job to convey me rather than I asking them.

    Online Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New Delhi
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Delhi
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at eBay Inc. in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    I went through a recruitment consultant where in I had to take an aptitude test. You are shortlisted for the interview if you clear the test. It's then that you have to go through the interview process at ebay. I had 3 rounds of interviews on different days. Usually you are asked the same question in different ways. The key is to stick to your answer each time you are asked the same question and not change the answers with every interviewer. It took around a month for me to get a confirmation about my selection. You are asked briefly about the job you are applying for (some basic knowledge about the company and its products), some situational questions and how would you handle them.
