Software Engineer Internship Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Facebook in December 2012.

Interview

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. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Facebook (Mountain View, CA) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Phone interview with an engineer located in Mountain View. Contacted directly by a recruiter in Boston and scheduled an interview with an engineer elsewhere. All correspondence was efficient and friendly, the engineer I spoke to was receptive to questions and even somewhat critical of the company which was a pleasant surprise.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook in February 2018.

    Interview

    Got contacted by a recruiter and invited to interview over the phone. The interviewer wasn't very nice. It seemed like he was unprepared and making the question up on-the-spot. He wasn't very clear about what he wanted me to do.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook in September 2018.

    Interview

    I applied through a referral, then had 2 technical phone interviews, and finally an offer. All my questions were straight up leetcode medium, although i only found out after the fact (it's not that easy to do and remember all of those problems anyways, so don't fret!). extremely fast process. They contacted me the morning after my first interview and set up the second for the next week. The offer came 4 days after the second one.
