    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Facebook in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process was as expected. First I submitted my resume, then once that was accepted I had to take an online Hackerrank test.

    After passing that, then I received a phone call giving me more details about what to expect over the next stages.

    Then was the phone interview, where I had to use collabedit to type my answers to the problem given. I was also asked if I had any questions. The interviewer was really friendly and made efforts to help when I seemed stuck.

    Interview Questions
    • Letters are represented by numbers, e.g.
      A = 1
      B = 2
      ...
      J = 10
      K = 11
      etc.

      Given a number (e.g. 113), how many different combinations of letters could this be converted to?

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Facebook.

    Interview Details

    Met a recruiter at a career fair. Super nice, and seemed to get really interested once I mentioned that I wanted to do work relating to infrastructure. I got an on-campus interview after that, which was very straightforward. Mostly talked about projects, and the one technical question I got was basically just implementing a DFS. Thought I did well in the interview, but my recruiter never got back to me.

    Interview Questions
    • None. The question was asking given a string and a mapping of a character to another set of characters, print all the possible combinations of chars.   View Answers (2)
