I had an on-site interview with PayPal 4 weeks back. And still they haven't told me their decision and yeah they don't respond to my emails as well.

I see people waited for 3-4 weeks for their decision in other posts. Is this a norm at PayPal?
On top of that, they kept posting the same job in their portal again and again😅 (with same Job Id)🙄

Location: Austin
Role: Sr. Software engineer

      Yeah. A clear NO would have been much better :)

    Must be H1B job posting. These positions are for hiring H1bs or for filling GC for visa employees. Don’t waste time on them.

      Yup. See them all the time with my current employer and past ones. Though the fact that op went through an on-site likely means the hiring Mgr picked someone else and the recruiter was just lazy to inform everyone else

      For H1B (or GC) job posts, people usually do their best to rule out candidates at application or phone screen phase. They'd rather restart the perm process than to bring candidates onsite.

    This isn't the first time I've heard that candidates are being ghosted. We are in a dire need to improve our overall candidate experience. 🤦🏽‍♂️

    I've heard employees positing about referred candidates never hearing anything from our side/system.

    Where as for companies like FB, Twilio and I'm sure many others, there's literally an SLA for a response from a recruiting team if someone is being referred. 👌🏻

    Name of the recruiter and hiring manager you’re working with? I can vouch my experience was world class being onboarded.

      Agree, please name or DM me the names. Recruiting org at PayPal is pretty bad, hiring managers are a mixed bag ranging from awful to outstanding. PayPal doesn’t have a consistent talent bar unfortunately, although some of us are attempting to address that.

      @cheesecash, @trump2024, what are you going to do with those names? What if I get rejected/blacklisted because of this?🙄

      If you want DM me and I’ll send an email to find out the status of the position and leave your name out of it. To me it seems like a better solution than to put the publicly traded company on blast that you’d supposedly be excited to join if you were to be offered a position. Still doesn’t justify the experience you’ve had but that’s the way I see this situation.

    Paypal sends rejects through an automated email that usually lands into your spam folder. Check there. If not then bad luck.

    Anyone from PayPal who says there are other reasons and have theories for defense, is in all humility, a big BS. Candidates should be provided with communication if there are delays for any reason. Period.

      Most likely it's a cultural issue or maybe the hiring managers want more from the candidate. In any case any SLA should be what something is required for definite.

      But one another bad thing is VP exceptions for everything 🤦‍♂️

    It's simple.
    If u are a clear winner or a clear loser then they let u know faster.

    When u have performed just okay, they don't wanna loose u and at same time looking for other candidates.

    This is the usual case, but then there could be approval issues sometimes ( but that's mostly during salary negotiations)
