    Community Operations Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Facebook.

    Interview

    Reading other people’s experiences for their interviews made me hopeful for my interview in a sense that they had a very professional and positive interview process, even for those that didn’t get an offer. However, my experience was nothing like that.

    It started off with a recruiter calling me 3 minutes late and didn’t apologize for it. I didn’t make a big deal out of it but thought it was very unusual for someone being late to a meeting and didn’t even acknowledge it. I guess in my 6 years of being in a corporate setting, they apologized if they were late even a minute after the scheduled call or meeting. But I digress. We introduced ourselves and she didn’t seem too enthused to be on a call with me. She asked if it was still a good time for the call and I said yes. In hindsight, I should’ve said no since there was so much background noise that ended up being extremely distracting and a hindrance for us to hear each other.

    She asked if I could share briefly about myself and experiences. As I shared, she stopped me to speak louder since she couldn’t hear me very well. Mind you, this whole time she didn’t bring up the loud noise around her. So I mentioned it that it’s very loud on her end. She apologized since people were bringing their families to work (it was on Halloween) and she couldn’t get a room. So I tried speaking louder but she still couldn’t hear me very well and I couldn’t hear her clearly and had to ask her to repeat her questions. And this whole time I was very distracted with people in the background laughing and talking loudly.
    Yes, I get it that FB culture is so fun and you’re all great but please, show some respect for others. If you’re conducting an interview, the least you can do is give the person your full attention. If you can’t find a room where you can hear the other person clearly (or pretend you’re interested in hearing them), then suggest another time.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Facebook (Menlo Park, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    One initial phone interview then on sight interviews with 3 people. Really interesting and challenging questions, a lot more about your problem solving/situational rather then 'tell me' questions. At no point was I asked about my experiences, it was more about you showing them your skills.

    Operations Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Facebook (Menlo Park, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I recently went through the interview process after being contacted by a recruiter. The process began with a phone screen followed by an onsite interview panel with six individuals 30 minutes each.

    The recruiter was very helpful in describing the role, what the needs of the role are and who it reports to along with the individuals who I would be speaking with and what their roles are. The scheduling was perfect and everything ran on time. I enjoyed speaking with all the members of the panel and the questions were substantive for the most part, definitely one of the better prepared and executed interviews with things being on point. The only issue which was a bit foreboding was a question by one of the participants asking "are you getting close to retirement" which threw me off a bit although you have better chance of seeing a pterodactyl flying over Menlo Park then someone over 45 working at Facebook (and honestly anywhere in the valley), still you dont expect people to be so upfront about it. As expected no offer but overall a good experience but based on it would likely not entertain another recruiter call from them.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Facebook (Menlo Park, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I had an excellent Facebook interview experience and felt engaged and taken care of throughout the process, though hearing back on the hiring decision took several days later than promised.

    I had a friend refer me internally for the position. I was contacted by e-mail shortly after by a recruiter, followed by a phone screening with the recruiter. The next week, I had a phone interview with the hiring manager. Then about a month later, I had a video interview followed by an on-site interview. Before the interviews, I had a phone call with my recruiter to help prepare for the interviews.

    My 30-minute video interview was with a team member in London. The first half was questions about my writing experience, and the second half was a writing and editing exercise.

    I interviewed with three people on site, 30 minutes each, and met my recruiters several times during the day, including for lunch. The questions were challenging and related directly to examples of experiences in past and present positions.

    I interviewed on a Monday and was told I'd hear back by the end of the week, but actually heard back the next Tuesday.

    Analytics Project Manager, Product Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Mountain View, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I only had an HR phone screen, but this process from initial scheduling email to final rejection took more than three weeks. The interviewer was nice and professional but seemed rushed. She kept starting questions with "very quickly, tell me about..." or "in thirty seconds, give me a brief summary...". So be mentally prepared to interview with someone who is clearly swamped.
