I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Facebook in January 2013.
Interview Details – Had a short phone talk with the recruiter, then he arranged an on-site interview. It had two rounds and each round has a main interviewer and a shadow. But it seemed that they don't coordinate well... the first interviewer thought I am seeking a full-time position and the second interviewer almost forgot the interview.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Facebook in October 2011.
Interview Details – I had an on campus interview with a current software engineer. He first asked me to talk about some of the contents of my resume, and then asked me to elaborate on a recent project I worked on that I liked. He then asked me a few coding questions. Both went off of the same principle of trying to implement a method to process a certain type of regular expression. I coded on a whiteboard, and my interviewer gave feedback as I went along. At the end, he asked how I might optimize the method I wrote.

Interview Details – My interviewer was very nice and seemed like a chill guy. He asked me to talk about what I did in the past and to name a cool coding project that I did in the past for fun.
