    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Menlo Park, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online for the position, and received an email from the recruiter about a month later. I had an initial phone interview with the recruiter that I would be supporting, then an onsite interview with two other recruiters on the team and the recruiting manager. I got a good sense of what the role would entail and also got a tour of the campus, which is absolutely unbelievable. I left with a clear sense of what the next steps would be, and received an offer within several days, which I accepted.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Facebook (Menlo Park, CA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Scored the interview through a contact on a LinkedIn Alumni Group. I first had a phone screening. I went through my contacts to connect me with someone that worked at Facebook to ask for questions they might ask. They told me to make sure to take about their metrics. The person that scored me the interview told me that it wasn't needed. However when I got to the actual interview it was asked. I was then called for an in-person interview. I met with three different people who were going to be instructors for the sourcing bootcamp. Two of them were very approachable and friendly. The third person was very intimidating and asked very hard questions. It is better to over prepare! They said that it would take a week to hear about but they didn't, so it took a long time to figure out that I did not get the offer.

    Interview

    The interviewers are all very genuine and friendly, which made the process enjoyable! I was first contacted by phone for an interview and then brought onsite to meet with a couple more people from the same recruiting team. Since I interviewed during the afternoon, I also got free lunch at one of the cafes. The food was delicious and kept my energy up.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Facebook (Tel Aviv-Yafo (Israel)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I had 4 interviews through phone, and then silence - for approx. 6 months now they did not return to me with the obvious answer of feedback. Overall it was cool to get the interview there, but the lack of any feedback, after I invested something like 4 hours, a babysitter and time to prepare - it's not what you can expect from a company on this scale.
