    Operations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Menlo Park, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Facebook (Menlo Park, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It was very quick and they really didn't seem interested in what I had to say. I think it was because they were interviewing a lot of people that day.

    Business Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Menlo Park, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Had a phone screening (30min) then an onsite interview (3 30-minute interviews face to face). Went over why Facebook, what analytics would I use to measure the performance of the business, my understanding of the role and how Facebook conducts business (works in that space), and lastly an SQL problem. It took 3.5 weeks (after I reached out to HR) for them to give me a rejection. Although I wasn't surprised with the result after the wait I think it is unprofessional to not give a status update after making the time to interview in person (seems like this is becoming the norm though)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Facebook in June 2016.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me several months after I applied. She was very nice and put me through to talk to the hiring manager the following week. The hiring manager was very technical and had little concern for cultural fit. I was given a case question which I had no clue how to answer and he abruptly ended the conversation though I assured him I was willing to learn. My some miracle I made it to the next round which was a case study which I had 2 hours to complete. No feedback was given except that I wasn't making it to the next round.
