The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Facebook in November 2010.

Interview Details

In total I had two interviews: one on-campus interview with basic algorithm questions and a phone interview with somewhat more abstract questions.
The interviewers liked their job, but were fairly closed about the actual work people do at Facebook. The hiring process is interesting in that they don't match you with a host until you start your internship.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Facebook in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by Facebook after finishing several of their puzzles puzzles. The first round phone screen from HR was non-technical. The second round was from a software engineer. There was one technical coding question, and we shared an online doc to write the code. I didn't do well, and received a rejection letter a few days later.
