Analyst Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Facebook in September 2012.

Interview Details

Was contacted by Facebook HR via email after applying for Analyst position online. The HR representative was friendly and we set up a phone interview. The interview was pretty relaxed and straightforward. I was asked to explain a little bit about my background and some work I had done listed on my resume. The HR rep also explained a little bit more about the position description, duties and the team I might be working with. The interview ended after about 25 mins with the HR rep asking if I had any additional questions. I haven't heard back about the position since the initial phone interview, so I assume I did not get the position.

Interview Questions
  • Not that it was an unexpected question, I was asked why I wanted to work at Facebook and why I applied for the Analyst position. Fairly straightforward. These are questions you should have prepared for in the first place.   Answer Question

    The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Facebook in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume on their website and heard back from HR about 2 weeks later. There were two phone interviews and a 2 hour onsite interview. All communication following their initial contact with me was very prompt, and phone interviews were all on time. Everyone I interacted with was very helpful and pleasant, and as I was coming from Google we had a lot in common. I think having Google on my resume was what helped me get a response, as I didn't have much relevant experience (I'm a recent college grad).

    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Facebook in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    It's a tough company to get in. I had to do a recruiter screen, another phone screen with a team member, one in house with 3 team members, and another in house with 2 team members - including the director of the group. Mostly behavior with a few analytical situational questions.

    I applied via LinkedIn. HR sent me an email with the link of some tests. It has time limit and non stop exam. I passed it.
    then HR called me and check my background with me and talked about job details as well.
    Next step was communication with the Hiring Manager. She was kind a hard person but i was well prepared. I passed it as well.

    Now I am about the having another interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Facebook.

    Interview Details

    There are varying number of interviews in different colleges. I personally had to undergo a total of 6 rounds-

    a) Written - wherein they tested our command over English. The test though not very difficult, will gauge your grasp over grammar.

    b) Group Discussion- a group of 6- 7 candidates are expected to debate on 2- 3 topics. Here I believe the key is to put across one's view without coming across as too dominating. Being balanced and constantly engaged always seems to work.

    c) First round (interview) - The first round for me was extremely basic and lots of fun. As I was been interviewed for Online Sales Operations (now Global Marketing Solutions), the interviewer asked me questions pertaining to my favorite ad, my thoughts on online advertising etc. It was a very easy interview and was basically to understand if I was aware of the online platform.

    d) Second Round - The second round was largely around scrutinizing my resume and later questions pertaining to my future plans. I was honest about when I wanted to pursue my Masters, later got to know that they were looking forward to such honest answers. (Guess lying about you wanting with the company forever, esp if you're an undergrad, won't work :) )

    e) The next two round were via Skype and phone. Both of the interviewers were there to gauge one's analytical skills.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Facebook.

    Interview Details

    Just a simple 15-30 minute phone interview. I wasn't sure how I felt about the interview. The recruiter was polite and proceeded to dive right in to asking me about everything Facebook in conjunction with some technical questions. The technical questions weren't difficult for someone that comes from a data/statistics background. I obviously didn't (guess that's why they do phone screens). Then she put me on hold for about 1-2 minutes. Proceeded to tell me more about the job (read the job description really quickly) and asked if I had questions. Needless to say, I was not what she was looking for and she knew that mid-way through the interview.
