    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Facebook (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    After applying on the Facebook career website I've got a reply back within 2 days saying that I've been successful on the first step and now is gone be the language test. At this point the language test was about responding in own words between 200 - 400 on 1 question. My advise go for 400 because 365 words wasn't enough and result was slightly below average. This was the reply received from the hiring person.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Facebook (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I have successfully passed initial screening by recruiter and two rounds of online interviews with different engineers and was invited for an onsite interview, which was held in Dublin.
    Things to be discussed were quite interesting as a whole, and I got almost positive feedback, although I failed coding interview - as I was supposed to write a piece of well-known computer game and I have chosen to do it in C and (from interviewer's point of view) have selected somewhat non-optimal data structures for it.

    Risk and Payments Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Overall it was an extremely pleasant process. Everyone was very friendly and helpful along the way, and every step was clearly explained. I was assigned a recruiter, Alan, who led me through the process, answered my questions, and even met me onsite which was nice.
    The process consisted of a short screening by the recruiter where I was asked about my previous experience and education and was described the role in more detail. The next step was a phone conversation with the hiring manager. This was where I learned about the role in the most detail and I left the conversation feeling like I could really imagine my day-to-day role, my responsibilities, etc. This was very refreshing compared to other interviews I've done where the description of a role is very vague. Finally the last round consisted of 4 interviews, each 30 minutes long. I had to do two interviews through video conference as the interviewees were in the US, and two onsite interviews.

    The process was fun but also quite challenging, in a good way! Everyone I spoke to was intelligent and passionate about their work. Unfortunately in the end, the position was given to another candidate but I was not deterred! After speaking with everyone, and seeing the office, etc. it has only confirmed my desire to work at Facebook, and I will most definitely be applying to more roles here.

    One critique I would make is that for a technical role, I felt that there should have been more questions that tested my technical abilities, e.g. more coding questions. I know some people won't like that but I think it's good to see if you have what it takes!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Had an initial phone interview with the HR recruiter about my reasons for want to join Facebook and the role in particular. Then had a phone interview with the hiring manager. Then had a final round VC interviews with 4 different people, from the Irish and San Fran offices.
    The HR recruiter was incredibly encouraging the whole way through the process and gave me lots of tips in what to prep for each interview. The interviews were very chilled and were more like conversations than probing questions. I got a call from the HR recruiter 2 days after my final interview to find out I was successful.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Facebook (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The Most Irrespetful Inteviewer Ever: I was contacted by a interviewer in Dublin. After sending her my availability, waiting 3 hours for a ghost interviewer and 5 emails later, nobody answered me back ever. I found very unprofessional recruiters contacting candidates for an interview and not showing up or not answering back. What happened to her? Did she fall into a Black Hole?. Does Facebook makes you legible to do whatever you want to candidates?.
