    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Facebook in February 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted by HR manager 1 week after the employee referral. The interview arrangement is kinda slow, but the process went smoothly. Two code interviews followed by one behavioral interview. NDA signed, but the questions are quite reasonable. The intervieewers are all very helpful and patient. I personally enjoyed talking with them.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Facebook.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of a 45 min interview with one of the dev on campus. It was a technical interview with focus on data structures like tree and algos related to the same. I was asked to print all the nodes of a tree in order. Basically an implementation of BFS and then was asked to print the tree as it appears with correct new line characters making it appear as a tree and then further was asked to modify the logic such that the nodes are indented to make it look exactly like tree(we see in all the DS books)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Facebook in November 2014.

    Interview

    Was emailed promptly by a recruiter, who arranged everything. Had one phone interview. Interviewed for the grad-student-level position of "security engineer intern", which I assumed meant more along the lines of network and system security and less along the lines of web security, which is cool but not my area.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain TLS from start to finish, in as much detail as you are comfortable with. Explain everything that happens from the moment you type facebook.com into your browser to the moment you log in, in as much detail as you are comfortable with. The first one I bombed, the second one I'm pretty sure I nailed. Neither question was expected.   Answer Question
