    A friend referred me, and I had to take up their online programming test. They readily scheduled a phone interview, which went well and within an hour I received a mail asking for time to schedule the second. The second one also went well, and they offered me the job after 3-4 days.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Facebook in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had 2 phone screens before I got internship offer. Both had the same format - first 5 minutes talking about my experience, then ~30 minutes of coding questions. My interviewers were nice, smart and asked only reasonable questions. After each interview I had couple more minutes to ask my own questions and learn something about Facebook.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Facebook in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    I did a phone screening with facebook after talking with them at the career fair. The recruiters were very friendly, but the phone screener was one of the most unfriendly people I have met during my interview process. She didn't even bother introducing herself or talking to me and seemed like she was just reading questions off a sheet of paper.
    She asked about the difference between an array list and a vector, and some more short, concrete (no algorithms) java questions.
    Afterwards, she asked me to do a facebook puzzle, but it was such a bad experience that I didn't bother.

    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?
