    People Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Menlo Park, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Menlo Park, CA) in April 2020.

    Interview

    Sourcing screen. Sourcer was unprepared and unaware of my current employment status and seemed like he had just read my resume 5 minutes before the call. Only asked very general "website" interview questions.

    Although, Employee referral program at Facebook is excellent and team went the extra mile to find a fit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Facebook (San Francisco, CA) in April 2020.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out over email. Quick call and I was scheduled for a technical phone screen. The interviewer turned out to have a really thick Chinese accent. Lost a bunch of time trying to understand the interviewer explain their question and understand my solution. There is only so many times one can ask someone to repeat themselves. Would have been nice to be able to interview with someone where communication wasn't the handicap.

    Interview

    HR contacted me to set up interview. Interview was 1 hour long and asked data structures and algorithms questions. Interviewer wasn't clear and didn't elaborate enough.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Facebook in April 2020.

    Interview

    I was passed around to different recruiters as they were determining which office needed headcount which took some time. Interview itself was standard algo stuff, recruiters did a good job providing prep material but the interview was very short and I didn't finish optimizing in time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Austin, TX) in April 2020.

    Interview

    Facebook talks about diversity but only hires people from Silicon Valley and those who only agree with their virtue signaling and censorship of views they dont deem acceptable. If you want a job, put a pronoun next to your name and post the latest mainstream acceptable point of view for this cult of fascist freedom haters. They brought this culture during the interview and i had a difference of opinion, so i am out. Diversity of thought not allowed at Facebook.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Seattle, WA) in April 2020.

    Interview

    Overall normal interview process conducted virtually due to Covid. Phone screen with recruiter, then video interviews with various people along with the hiring manager.

    Questions were a combination of behavioral and technical, specific to the role. Felt very conversational with the technical questions layered in throughout.

    It’s been a few weeks with no addition interviews or contact from the company.
