Account Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
No Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Palo Alto, CA) in July 2011.

Interview

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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Singapore (Singapore)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    30 min phone interview with recruiter-->30 min phone interview with team manager -->30minute presentation interview with team manager--> on-site interview the phone interviews were basic. I had prepared everything in English, but the hiring people had no interest in asking me questions in English, which totally threw me off. The presentation interview was intense. They ask questions based on your presentation, and of real life situations.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Facebook (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online for the role of Account Manager (International). After a few weeks, I was invited to a phone interview, which went quite smoothly (typical questions about my background). Then, I was invited to take a language test and to record myself answering 4 questions. Then, the process stopped for over a month due to an internal restructuring. When the process resumed, it had been handed over to a different interviewer, to whom my CV was passed on. This next interviewer contacted me in order to arrange another phone interview. This time around, the process was a lot quicker – just one phone call and I was invited to Facebook's HQ in Dublin for an interview day. All expenses were paid for by the company except for meals and transportation. I arrived at Dublin on a Sunday and the interview day was on Monday. It was super-quick – less than 2 hours and 4 interviewers from Account Management, Partner Management, Client Services and the Regional Director. In my opinion, the questions they asked were too thoughtful and mind-draining for such little time and the position itself, and honestly, sometimes I did not know how to answer them. The hardest part was the last one with the regional director. I sensed from the first moment he didn't enjoyed being there. "Tell me something that's not in your CV", "Why should I hire you", "Do you like football." I asked what was he looking for in a candidate and his answer was "we're looking for bold people who can make an impression." (As if he just read that.) After we were finished, he simply left the meeting room and I had to find my way to the exit from a 3rd floor myself, and to the airport. But other than that, it was an interesting experience although it felt like getting the on-site interview was just a matter of luck.
