Interview Details

Very basic initial phone interview from a recruiter at Facebook. No questions were asked to be thrown off, general background information and resume review. Nothing unexpected. General review of past experience and general knowledge. Nothing even too specific to Facebook or the role in general.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Facebook.

    Interview Details

    Applied for an Account Manager position in early 2014 via an employee referral. The recruiter contacted me within in a week. After the initial phone screen, they set up a video interview with 4 team members. The video interview went smoothly. Interviewers mainly asked about my experience in advertising and client services; there were no curveball questions. After the video interview, the recruiter wouldn't return phone calls or emails from me so I assume the role was given to someone else.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Facebook in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Ridiculously long and drawn out process. If you want a snot nosed Ivy League 22-year old telling you how the business world works, you should definitely interview here. I met with 8 different people, most of them were straight out of school, yet cocky as hell.

    Interview Details

    They're helpful, respectful and incredibly organized. They're there to help you succeed and will do what it takes to get you in the door if you're the right fit.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions about my favorite campaigns on Facebook started in the phone screen, which caught me off guard. I was expecting that later in the process - don't underestimate your recruiter. Overall, questions were mostly based on my background/experience & passions - they didn't throw in any of those awful brain teasers or analytical questions. I greatly appreciate that, because I find them annoying and worthless! Facebook is smart enough to know that there are easier (and better) ways to find out how a person handles pressure, and how they think.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They are great with negotiations and will do what they need to bring in people that are the right fit.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Facebook in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Referred to by current FB employee and the process was very quick and took about 3 weeks total. I had 5 phone interviews and then a half day of in person interviews with team members at their Texas location. Recruiter was great at prepping you for the interview.

    Interview Questions

    Account Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Facebook in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Its a thrilling email when you get an email from fb.com saying they're interested in you. The overall experience was good. I got my decision in 4 days of my on site interview.

    The interview style is definitely very different. They expect you to be an independent thinker, know the product and industry at expert level, and show energy.

    The most common question is simply, why do you want to work at Facebook. I don't think they want to hear you want to get rich.
    Expect to whiteboard, present case studies and show world class qualifications. The recruiter actually tells you this, so take it seriously.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Facebook in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    A friend of a friend referred me for the position and a recruiter reached out to me to schedule an interview about a week later. I had a relatively easy 30 minute call with the recruiter, which she was 10 minutes late for, where I described my background, and learned a little more about the position. I was told I would have to speak with an employee in the position I was interviewing for, and then the next step would be to fly me down to Austin for an in-person interview (I'm currently in NY).

    A couple days later, I spoke with an Account Manager who asked relatively straightforward questions about my experience, and why I was interested in Facebook. Overall, I think it was a good conversation and I was able to develop a rapport. Things started to get a little weird after this point. After the call I asked the recruiter for the Account Manager's email so I could send a Thank You, to which I received a cold response that they couldn't disclose this information. I was then told I would have to have another phone interview with another Account Manager, and that this was "standard procedure" despite her saying different previously.

    My call with the second Account Manager went find. She was a little more cold and standoffish than the first one, but it may have just been the phone interview. The call seemed to go fine, more softball questions about my experience, what I thought of the Facebook advertising product, etc, etc. I didn't get as good a vibe this time, and followed up with the recruiter at the end of the week for next steps. I got an email Monday that they would not be going forward with me as a candidate with little insight as to why.

    My overall impression is that the HR department at Facebook is very young and inexperienced. Being late to my call gave me a bad first impression, and their rejection email referenced the incorrect names of the people I had interviewed with from their Account team. She also referenced a different position than the one I had applied to, and to which they were recruiting when I spoke with her - I applied for a job on their Agency team, and she said the position was on their Vertical team when we spoke, though when I spoke with the Account Managers they reverted back to treating it as a position with their Agency team. I'm sure part of it has to do with the fast pace which the company is growing, but I think they could do a lot more to treat their candidates respectfully.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Facebook in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Had an informal call with a recruiter that was trying to rush the process so it sounded like they were trying to move quickly. She told me the process consisted of a one on one phone interview followed by an in-person interview where I would meet 4 other employees. My phone interview was 2 weeks after my initial contact with the recruiter because there was a Global Sales Conference the following week and no one was in the office.

    When I had my one on one it was with a potential peer (NOT someone I would be reporting to) She had a similar background to mine and was very polite. Questions were relevant and not too difficult. I think in order to do well here, the interviewee has to be REALLY passionate about Facebook. If they don't get that sense, they will end up passing on you even if your experience and background fits like a glove. There's tons of people that are dying to work for this company so they can be picky.

    My tip is make sure you sound excited about the chance to work there. Also, I'm sure they screen your profile so make sure you hide any inappropriate pics or comments. They won't bring it up but you can't convince me otherwise that they don't look you up beforehand.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Facebook in June 2010.

Phone screen conversation, 3. Phone Interview, 4. In person rotation interview (talking to 2-4 interviewers, each individually).

    Everyone involved in the interview process was very friendly and pleasant.
