Difficult Interview

Application

The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Facebook (San Francisco, CA) in April 2010.

Interview

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 through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Facebook in December 2009.

    Interview

    People were really nice. Had a few one on one interviews. The office is also a very cool space. The company seems to be interviewing a lot of people, so they totally have a pick of the lot. Not sure if someone ended up getting the position or not.

    Interview

    The interview process was really nice. People were very nice at the office as well. Interviews went by really fast. Not sure what they are looking for in terms of stellar answers. also seems like they are interviewing a lot of people a day, so they definitely have their pick of the lot and can be picky.

    Interview

    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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Facebook (Menlo Park, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    They set up a phone interview so that I could talk with the recruiter. He asked a couple of questions about my experience and how I work on a team. Then he set up an interview with the hiring manager. She ask me a couple of technical questions, how I work on a team, and what was my experience. I got asked to come to campus to have an interview with some of the people on the team and to meet with three managers. They asked me more challenging technical questions that had to do with the job. it helped that I completely understood what is was that I would be doing on the job and to understand the job description 100%. They were very nice and overall the interview went smoothly. However, they emailed me a week later to schedule time to talk any time during the week. It was confusing because it sounded like it could be a good thing, but then seconds after taking the call they informed me that I didn't get the job because I didn't have enough experience.

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Facebook (Palo Alto, CA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    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 daysinterviewed at Facebook in June 2011.

    Interview

    The phone interview was basically a run down of my previous experience, and me demonstrating my knowledge of the company. These guys put a lot of emphasis on prior knowledge of the company, which might be fair given that I was interviewing for a marketing data analyst position.
