Application Details

I applied through college or university – interviewed at Facebook.

Interview Details

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)

    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?
