Marketing Interview

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Facebook in May 2014.

Interview Details – Phone interview: Was called one day after submitting my resume. Very nice, recruiter but new very little about the actual position which made it difficult for me to show my value. She appeared to be very excited about my interest through multiple emails but did not hear back.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Facebook in October 2010.

Interview Details – Going through the phone interview and in person interviews went very well. The disappointing part was they offered me the contract job but then cancelled the requisition and just distributed the work between the other employees while the employee was on maternity leave.

Internet Marketing Analyst Interview

Internet Marketing Analyst
Menlo Park, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Facebook in March 2013.

Interview Details – I was first contacted by an internal recruiter through LinkedIn. We setup an initial call so I could learn more about the opportunity. After I expressed some interest, they setup three phone interviews with their Growth, Engagement and Mobile team. The first interviewer asked a couple of logic puzzles, case questions on how to grow Facebook and how I would go about executing an A/B test. The second interview was a technical interview -- a couple of basic SQL questions. The last interview was a behavioral interview. Afterwards, I received feedback that they would like to invite me for an on-site interview at their HQ. There was some miscommunications with my travel arrangements, but other than some minor snafus, FB took care of everything.

At their HQ, I had 6 interviews with various managers and the head of the Growth team. Many of them revolved around how I would grow adoption of various FB products, their userbase, SQL questions, behavioral-type questions and questions about my past projects. It was not a difficult interview process, but I got the sense they were looking for a particular fit -- someone who was passionate about data, marketing, and could communicate big ideas to grow Facebook. They mentioned they were risk averse when hiring candidates -- they'd rather turn down a good candidate over hiring a false positive.

The campus was lovely and everybody was very friendly towards me. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and if I have another opportunity to interview there, I may do so in the future.

  • A Russian gangster kidnaps you. He puts two bullets in consecutive order in an empty six-round revolver, spins it, points it at your head and shoots. *click* You're still alive. He then asks you, do you want me to spin it again and fire or pull the trigger again. For each option, what is the probability that you'll be shot?   View Answers (9)
