I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Facebook in August 2013.
Interview Details – Recruiter was very friendly and great about following up. Functional leader was more interested in what I knew about Facebook (how much I studied up on the company). The fact I'm a professional with a proven long term track record of excellent performance, didn't seem to carry any weight. Also, based on many questions, it was apparent they aren't aligned internally on what exact skill set they are looking for.

Interview Details – (Front End Developer)
After going to a conference, and talking with several people from Facebook who also attended, I was contacted via email to see if I was interested in doing an interview.
I said yes, and got my first phone interview a few days later. In a shared code environment I needed to do a recursion assignment, and also create a polyfill. It went okay, although I wasn't happy with my performance on the polyfill. This took about 40 minutes.
The more surprised I was that they asked me for a second phone interview, whereby I also had to do a recursion question. I made it harder then necessary for myself, which was unfortunate.
After this I was invited to Facebook HQ, and had to do 4 interviews. Interviews were about recursion, closures, css, implementations. Unfortunately I wasn't good enough for Facebook, so that got me messed up for a month or so. I thought I did pretty good, but needed too much time to get going.
The recruiters and interviewers were great. The process went really smooth, and comfortable.
Interview Question – Questions about recursion, css positioning, what would you like to do at Facebook, and closures. Answer Question
Interviewed at Facebook
Interview Details – Had a phone interview with recruiter, another phone interview with hiring manager, and then in-person interview with 5 people. The questions asked were to be expected...tell me about yourself, your carer progression, what were your biggest accomplishments, solve an ER issue, and why facebook. The process was very organized and smooth - lots of communication with the recruiter which was helpful. Was exciting to see the campus - lots of energy and a really great vibe overall.
Interview Question – Was asked to explain career progression and biggest accomplishment in each role. It was a good question, but ends up being a long answer. Hard to stay organized while explaining each role and each accomplishment. Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Facebook.
Interview Details – First an interview phone screen with a very knowledgable, followed by two phone interviews with current Facebook PMs. All the questions probed into how you thought about understanding users, features, technologies, and the vision you had for building things.

They very much want to see how you think rather than have you talk about your CV.

Interview Details – I saw the job online and I applied for it immediately. Within 2-3 2 days I received a call from Marc, the recruiter. He was very nice and professional. Asked me questions about my work experience and background. Said that he was drawn to my resume based on my length of service with my employer and achievements. He explained that it was a 3 step process, first with him, then the team members, then finally the director that would be supported by the new AA. Marc decided during our call that he wanted to move me to step 2, the interview with the staff. Within a week I was contacted and had a 1:1 interviews with the office manager, and the 2 admin assistants. They were courteous and very professional and asked basic questions. The interview wasn't intimidating or threatening and I was relaxed and comfortable from the start. Beautiful offices with a breathtaking view of the Emerald City! This was probably one of the best interviews I ever had.
