    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Facebook in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Facebook in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I uploaded my resume online and just a couple of days afterwards I got an email inviting me to do a phone interview. The first Interview was with someone from the HR team. The intervieweer was very nice and mostly asked about my experiences and my understanding of the role. At the end of the conversation I was told that the team manger would call me also and also what I should prepare for this next conversation. The team manger went more in depth with the questions.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Facebook in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Received a request on LinkedIn from a Facebook International Recruiter (based in Palo Alto). Was informed that Facebook is seeking an Account Manager for Online Sales Operations in Singapore. Wanting to understand further (and passion for social media), I consented to a phone interview. The first phone interview was from an International Recruiter and the call was mainly to highlight the responsibilities of the job. Questions asked were mainly open-ended questions about myself and thoughts on the company.

    My second phone interview came a week after. The interviewer was a Sales Associate and her questions duly appraised my areas of expertise and suitability for the position. Questions this time around involved hypothetical scenarios ("What will do to convince your client to invest in FB Ads", "How would you prioritize 50 clients?").

    Was informed a week after with regards to my 3rd phone interview, this time from an Account Manager based in Texas. Her questions were mainly related to the position and consist of hypothetical and behavioral questions ("What are your strengths/weaknesses", "How can you improve FB ads", "Say you are the account manager for XXX, how do you sell FB ads to them"?.

    Received an email a couple of days later for an on-site interview with my potential colleagues. The office has quite a bit of communal space and the setup encourages interactions among colleagues - as expected from coming from FB. The session was split into three 1-on-1 interviews and aside from personal queries, some key questions asked were, "Who are our competitors?", "How can we improve FB ads?", "Advantages of FB ads compared to our competitors".

    Although I did not receive the offer, overall it was a positive and enriching experience. Would recommend FB to anyone who wishes to pursue a career in the field of social media.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Facebook in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    The process was fairly standard and straight forward. I applied online and got a call from the recruiter based in California. She was very nice and extremely helpful and responsive. She prepped me up well for the upcoming interviews. I was then scheduled for 3 more phone interviews.

    The first two went very well and the recruiter called me again to check in and give some good and immediate feedback on my interviews so far. The last call was with a girl from Texas. From the onset, it appeared that she had a closed mind and only wanted to hear answers which she thought were appropriate. I don't think she had any working experience in Asia to be expecting to hear what I said. Throughout the interview, she was generally not interested to hear anything apart from her 22-yards and she was extremely cold. This was the exact opposite of what I had experienced so far. Needless to say, by the time the call got over I had a feverish feeling that I won't be getting the job and that is exactly what happened.

    I hope FB takes in to account that while having a diverse set of peers interview you, they should appoint individuals with an open mind, rather than standoffish.

    Interview Details

    I had only 1 interview with the recruiter who contacted me within 3 days after my online application. She sounded very professional over the phone setting the framework for the interview. Do be prepared for questions relating to adverstiments, campaign ads on Facebook, how does Facebook differ from Google and Yahoo and what makes Facebook so unique.
