I applied through an employee referral The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Airbnb

Interview

Phone Screen Multiple rounds of behavioral interviews plus an architecture interview. Overall pretty similar to most companies eng manager hiring process. Biggest difference is the presentation interview. Presentation interview was a fun change from the normal grilling with behavioral questions. Their deep commitment to cultural fit and hiring good people shows up across the entire interview process.

Interview

On-site exercise (2 hrs prep, 30 min presentation) and 5-6 cross functional interviews. Interviewers we’re sharp but not totally structured. Some repetition. Some much harder than others. Core values interview at end was nice. Not sure two were needed.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Airbnb in Apr 2022

Interview

2 round interview process via Zoom. One with QA Lead and other with Sr. QA Lead. Both interviews went very well. As far as I knew these were not the decision makers so I thought I would be getting at least another interview with a decision maker. The outside recruiter that got me the interview came back and gave me some ridiculous reason why the company decided not to make an offer. He was surprised that the 2nd person I met with was even involved in the decision making because when I told him the name his response was he didn’t really know that person to be involved in final round interviews. I told him that I was expecting another interview because it went so well and the interviewer was saying things like “good answer” “that’s exactly what I was looking for in an answer”. and I thought we left off on a very strong note. I was not aware that this would be a final round interview either. I had so much more experience than the people that interviewed me that I felt something else was going on. I guess it’s better to get rejected before than getting hired and they come with some nonsense to then get rid of you. Lessons learned. Be careful of these guys. Airbnb now leaves a bad taste in my mouth

I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Airbnb in Apr 2022

Interview

Recruiter screen was pretty straightforward. Hiring manager screen went over basic qualifications and some situational stuff. The people I met in the virtual onsite were nice, but hard to believe they are well calibrated / prepared for the interview since they were picking random questions from a list. A lot of "hmmm let me see... okay how about this question". If you're picking questions from a list you're seeing for the first time, how do you have a framework for what is a good answer and what is not?

Contacted me through LinkedIn, very formulaic phone screen; very yes/no questions, very meh experience. Was not surprised when I received a rejection letter three weeks later, but since they never question me about my experience how would they know what they’re missing

First call was an HR one to get context about the job offer. Second call was an exercise with someone that was overseas. Exercise wasn't clear, something about graph. Didn't pass to the second phase.
