    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Mountain View, CA).

    Interview

    Horrible experience. Out of all the interviews I had in my life, this is by far the worst experience ever because the interviewer is SO DISREPECTFUL. 1) First, the interviewer speaks terrible English and he gets frustrated when I ask for clarifications. He did not clarify the question even when I explicitly asked him for constraints, which turned his original problem into one that is a lot harder. 2) I solved the first question easily, and then he asked me a hard level LC question without clarifying it. He stays silent almost throughout the entire interview and gets extremely impatient when I ask questions. I always try to learn something from my interview, and what I learned from this experience is that crazy people also interview candidates.

    Interview

    The interviewer was not good. Came late, didn't have my resume. No behavioral questions. Went straight to coding part. Solved the first question but follow-up was hard. Didn't give hints. He couldn't get what I was saying nor could I get what he was trying to say.

    Data Scientist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Facebook (Palo Alto, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Very similar to what others have mentioned.

    -first call with recruiter, mainly going over your resume and having them explain the process. Afterwards he sent over prep material for the phone interviews and onsite interview. The material is really comprehensive and probably somewhat overkill, but if you review it all you will be prepared. The recruiter really really wants you to feel prepared as well, so use them as a resource! That was what stood out the most to me in the process, more than anywhere else they want you to feel ready.

    -phone interview with shared screen coding with a data scientist. Basic sql, coding, and stats questions.

    -another phone interview, very similar to the first.

    -on site interview with a mix of open ended data science problems, coding questions, sql questions, behavioral questions

    -follow up phone interview with only one subject that they felt they didn't ask enough about at the onsite
