Initial phone screen with a recruiter and then a panel interview. The questions were not overly difficult. I thought I did well but I never heard from the recruiter. I emailed asking for an update and still didn't hear back. Disappointing over all.

I applied online. I interviewed at Facebook (New York, NY) in Jul 2020

Interview

My interview experience at Facebook was overwhelmingly positive. The process took about 4 weeks from start to offer. 1st round: phone screen with recruiter 2nd round: video screen with hiring manager 3rd round: 4 back-to-back interviews over video conference with my hiring manager, his manager, my peer, and a cross-functional partner The interview process went very quickly because I had another offer that I was able to leverage for speed. My recruiter was awesome - she responded promptly to each of my emails and also sent me a 7 page deck to help prep me for my interviews. I have never seen something like this before and greatly appreciated that my interviewers were not trying to trick me but rather wanted to get a good sense for my experience. A helpful tip that a friend & current FB employee told me - FB really values candidates who embody their values, so I read through the company's values and made sure to weave them in when talking about my experience. I could tell this really resonated with my interviewers.

Interview Questions
  • Provide examples of: Agile problem solving: Learning agility, providing solutions to complex problems, decision making, and persistence Project management: Ruthless prioritization, communication, and support orientation Cross-functional partnership: Cross-functional collaboration, conflict resolution, influencing

Interview

Pretty standard process. Recruiter could have explained expectations better. Most interviewers were on time so no complains there. The company seems to have a certain preference for out-of-state candidates.

Interview Questions
  • Failure and what you learned from it

Interview

Quick and straightforward. Was contacted by a recruiter, had a phone screening interview and then a 1:1 with a leadership team member. The phone call with a recruiter was more to inform me about the position and then also to verify that my experience was relevant to the position. In both interviews I was given the opportunity to ask questions at the end.

Interview Questions
  • How do you prioritize tasks What is a situation where you have failed

The interview process was supposed to have between 3 and 5 stages. I completed the first three stages. Stage 1 - Phone screen with recruiter. Stage 2 - written assignment drafting team communication. Stage 3 - deep dive presentation.

Interview Questions
  • I was asked to develop a 20 minute deep dive presentation on a particular project. I was asked to give the presentation over Blue Jeans video conferencing app. I was given less then 1 day to prepare the presentation.
