I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Facebook.

Interview Details – It was a long interview process, but an enjoyable experience nonetheless. The first involved a phone call with a recruiter, she was incredibly friendly and referred me to the next call to talk about my work. The second call I was a bit nervous, but as soon as I spoke to the designer on the phone I immediately calmed down and he made the process feel very easy, like I was talking to a friend. Be sure to know all possible answers to questions about your designs. The next call was about critiquing a popular app so be prepared to analyze and answer questions about that! All in all it was a good process, I didn't get hired but I will be open to trying again in the future!

Interviewed at Facebook

Interview Details – 4 rounds of interviews. In the last round, they asked me to do a moderation of user testing.

The HR person was awful. She did not explain what the moderation is about, what will happen after it, how the day long interview would be... and she spoke like a tape recorder

Interview Question – the most difficult part was that the HR took my interview while having lunch on site. I was expecting it to be a casual lunch but she made it into an interview   Answer Question
