Executive Assistant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Negative Experience

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Facebook.

Interview

They missed 2 scheduled phone interviews. I never had the chance to speak with them. Very unprofessional and unorganized. They didn’t even send an apology email. I guess they have plenty of candidates so they flake on others.

Interview Questions

  • They never called me so they didn’t ask any questions.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Menlo Park, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter was sloppy and unprofessional. She would call at 9 PM and then when I'd make time for her, she wouldn't even have all the information she was supposed to have. She didn't listen to what I was saying and then would contradict herself. When I'd let her know what she told me the day before was the opposite to what she was telling me the next day, she would get agitated and defensive. WORST candidate experience ever.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Palo Alto, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    This is a long interview process as you would expect from places like Facebook. I had 2 phone screenings, 1 conference call with 3 different Executive Admins, followed by onsite interviews with 3 different groups. The onsite interviews are a whirlwind. Some of the groups had so many people that I needed to talk to that I only talked to each person for maybe 15 minutes. I would urge anyone interviewing at FB to use caution when answering questions. There were a few times where I feel I was baited into giving a questionable answer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Facebook in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the EA position and one of the admin recruiters e-mailed me shortly after to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was pretty basic, she asked me about my experience, my pay and why I wanted work at Facebook etc. She told me that the position I applied for was no longer available and she was going to put my resume in the pipeline for other openings. I sent her an e-mail to thank her right after the interview no response, I sent her a follow up e-mail 2 weeks after the phone interview still no word, not even an e-mail saying that "I am not a good fit etc." I have friends who applied for positions and got "no thank you' e-mails from other Facebook recruiting teams. Its very disappointing that the admin recruiting team won't even bother sending you a courtesy e-mail after a phone interview.

    The recruiting team is wonderful and are with you through the whole process. I got to the final round interviews (I had 4) and they decided to go with another candidate because the executive had a better connection with them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Menlo Park, CA).

    Interview

    i was contacted by a recruiter, then immediately scheduled to meet with the team. It was a bit unorganized. I was double booked and I didn't get to finish my interview. However, they were very apologetic and told me that they would get back to me to finish up. The questions were all the same, so I felt as if I was repeating myself. The atmosphere was great, and the people i met with were very nice.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I applied online directly to Facebook's website and was contacted within a few days by a recruiter. I did an initial phone interview and then I was set up for a face-to0face interview. My interview consisted of 3 back to back meetings with others that work on the team that I would be joining. I was contacted to come back for a second interview whic consisted of meeting with 5 others in back to back meetings. The reasoning behind so many interviews is that feedback from the interviewers is sent back to headquarters and based on the feedback, the hiring decision is made solely by HR. I enjoyed this type of hiring process because it prevents favoritism. And because everyone works so closely together (no cubicles or offices, everyone works at conference tables equipped with laptops), you really have to have a personlity that meshes well with the group.
