Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Boston, MA) in November 2016.

Interview

You get a phone call where they ask the typical getting to know you questions and then two technical ones. I only got to one question and it covered the concepts of permutations and recursion. I had been prepping for trees so was a little thrown off.

    Met Facebook at my college career fair. Later I received an invitation for an on-campus interview, which lasted 45 minutes. After passing this, went to Menlo Park for on-site interviews. This consisted of a 45 minute interview and then a couple hours of touring around the facebook campus.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Menlo Park, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend and did a first round interview at my school. Passed that one and was invited for onsite interviews at Menlo Park where I had another 45 minute interview and a tour around the campus. All the recruiters were really friendly and helpful throughout the process. They all seemed to be enthusiastic about the company and did their best to reassure candidates before interviews.

    • My first interview was a Leetcode hard involving dynamic programming and the onsite was two shorter Leetcode easy/medium questions.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Menlo Park, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    2 phone interviews. Had some behavioral questions about my resume at the beginning then went to coding problems. Although the easy questions were easy, the interviewer built off of them and asked interesting follow ups which I enjoyed. Interviewers were the nicest and most down to earth compared to other companies like Microsoft or Google.

    Interview Questions

    • They were basic algorithm questions: linked list, array, trees. Had 3 questions in total: 2 leetcode easy and 1 medium.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Facebook in October 2016.

    Interview

    The first interview was set up in university. I was super happy that Facebook was interviewing so many people but I also heard they weren't hiring anyone. Don't know why they raised so many of our goes. The HR department was also kind of janky where one recruiter was handling atleast 50 candidates leading so late conflict resolutions etc.

    Interview date comes, super pumped. The interviewer seemed like a friendly guy. Asked a few questions about my projects then jumped into technical questions. Solved all of them in the best complexity.

    Now when an interviewer asks three questions and you solve all three in best complexity and finish in 45 minutes, you feel like you're all set, but nope. I don't know if they're looking for perfect candidate's who have 0 error on their code, but soon got a rejection. (From the same janky hr people who I had to email from my side to ask for the outcome)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Facebook in October 2016.

    Interview

    Had a pretty bad experience overall. Interviewer seemed disinterested. I was given a single coding problem to solve on a whiteboard in 45 min and the interviewer was on his laptop most of the time. Question was pretty difficult and had a dynamic programming optimal solution.

    Interview Questions

    • How many string representations are there for an int (ex. 12432) where a->1, b->2, ... z->26.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook in October 2016.

    Interview

    Fairly simple process. For me Facebook did one phone technical interview, and then one in person technical interview at their office. I honestly don't think it's a very hard process, and if you put in a bit of effort you can probably get the job. For me personally, this was my first interview and I choked, but had I done it similarly to my following interviews I think I would have got the job.

    Interview Questions

    • I can't recall if they had a confidentiality clause, so I'm not going to say, but honestly all the questions were easy.   Answer Question
