After reading all these posts about people being offered so much money! I feel, I'm in a wrong place, a wrong company or I've some skill sets which are either useless or worth very less! I work at Airbnb as a claims specialist on 5 lpa fixed and incentives upto 20k per month? Isn't that too low? I've a total work experience of more than 4 years. What do I do to make more money! I can work with any company, without second thoughts, just need the offers to be higher than 8-9 lpa, I deserve this!!

Anonymous Employee in Montreal, QC
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Airbnb (Montreal, QC)
I signed on as a contractor and so the interview process was much easier than as a FTE. I had 3 interviews in total, everyone was very friendly and easy to talk to, and overall it wasn't very intimidating.
- Many questions were behavioral, to understand how I would respond to concerns and tackle problems. During one of the interviews (there were 3 in total), I also had a writing portion for how I would respond to a user. It was timed but relatively simple. This was about a year ago so I don't recall the exact questions that were asked.

My experience interviewing with the recruiter was troubling. The interviewer asked me questions that seemed to require disclosing confidential information from my current company, which would violate my NDA. Secondly, I found the interviewer's demeanor to be argumentative and confrontational. They interrupted me several times throughout the conversation, which made it challenging to effectively communicate my skills and tell my story. Lastly, despite my extensive experience which exceeds the requirements for the position, I felt as though the interviewer was focused on doubting my qualifications and ability rather than assessing my fit for the role. I hope you can take this feedback into consideration and make improvements to your engineering interview process and ensure you are not forcing candidates to reveal proprietary information or statistics.

Average interview with manager and team lead. 2 separate interviews in all. Remote and interviewers very friendly, they describe the role in detail, more like a chat. And ample opportunity to ask many questions.
- 1) what do you understand by team work 2) describe how you meet your work targets 3)how do you prioritize 4) Situational questions on health and safety - what will you do if an airbnb host calls and has safety concerns about their guest

Lengthy written test with short timeline to complete. Included translating advertising and programming info. What I found a bit unfortunate was that the test and job description did not align very well so candidates may be surprised by the content
- How did you learn the different languages that you know

First a chat with the recruiter who described what the role was and what they were looking for. Then a technical screen with an engineer where you solve a problem and have time for questions.
- It was a problem that was primarily about nested arrays.

It was very fast to go through 2 interviews. Fortunately the hiring managers who interviewed me were easy going and had the same background as I did so my experience was relatable.
- Very casual tell me About yourself questions
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Barcelona
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Airbnb (Barcelona) in May 2023
The HR person was very unprofessional and did not even mention what would the interview be about, or with whom. The interview was scheduled 2 weeks prior, and I only discovered one day before that the interview will include a live SQL test, while she could've told me earlier to prepare, she also did not say who I am meeting with, I thought I will be meeting with HR, or someone for the Data team, to my surprise I was meeting with someone from the Markets Acquisition team. Overall super negative experience, showed me the level of unprofessionalism in Airbnb, I wouldn't want to work there.
- - Live SQL test - Questions about Airbnb metrics and what would affect them.

A recruiter reached out about the role. The timing might have been late in the team’s hiring process, because the position was filled soon after I completed the first interview.
