    The interview was very straight-forward and mainly behavioral questions. I had a phone interview with manager, an onsite, then one final. All 3 rounds were conducted over video call and I'm currently waiting to hear back.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Talked to hiring manager after initial screen with HR. Process went smoothly. Content of tech screen was surprising -- did not seem like a good fit. Overall the interview process took several weeks to get to that point.

    Interview

    30 min around prior sales experience. There was a personality test taken prior. Recruiter didn’t seem to be on the same page as the managers unfortunately. No opportunity to negotiate salary/PTO. Take it or leave it job.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PayPal.

    Interview

    The process started fine with a quick call with Recruiter and other PM from the team. So far, so good.

    I was given a take home assignment I spent my whole weekend to present on my Onsite. Never doing a free service to solve solutions for the company. Case presentation+ 2 PM interviews + Engg interview

    Recruiter didn’t give results until I followed up twice. They said the role is for a high level, and they are waiting for a new opening. No response from the recruiter ever since.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PayPal.

    Interview

    Got reached out by the recruiter via email to setup a phone screen. Phone screen was just to get a high level overview of the technologies I am familiar with.
    After that, I had a virtual interview, which was Spring Boot heavy.
    Then I was ghosted.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    One of the worst HR recruiter experiences I've ever had. In two separate interactions for 2 separate roles, she said that the hiring manager was interested in speaking with me, then ghosted me, then after long breaks came back and said the hiring manager was pursuing an internal candidate and therefore not interested in me. I have no idea why this level of mixture of neglect and dishonesty exists as a practice. Phone screen with HR. This was standard where I was mostly told about the role and that the hiring manager had already seen my resume and was interested in talking to me; don't know if this was true. HR said the next step was she would send me info about the hiring manager, more about the role and process. And then HR ghosted me completely. I followed up twice. No response but was told the role was closed and another candidate was chosen. Followed up with the same HR person on another role who said the hiring manager was interested in speaking with me. GHOSTED again despite following up. Suddendly re-emerged to say an internal person was being pursued. Unbelievable. Can't believe this practice still exists.
