Candidature

J'ai postulé via une agence de recrutement. Le processus a pris 3 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Facebook (New York, NY (États-Unis)) en septembre 2017.

Entretien

The interview process is very positive. Nice people, not so hard questions, and great food! The onsite interview has four sections. Two for white board programming, one behavior question, and one system design. One of the technical question is easy but I didn't get the most efficient solution.

    Two phone interview process and wasn't picketed for the third onsite interview (final interview). The first one was a chat with the recruiter to talk about past experiences and future goals. She told me about the technical interview and kept saying how hard it is. Is in fact hard but, in my experience makes it harder if the interviewer doesn't speak fluent English so it was very hard for me to understand him. Is was excited to enter this company and will try again in the future, for now I'm done with the hard interview process.

    Entretien

    Did two tech screens onsite instead of over the phone. The interviewers were very friendly and the second one showed me around the campus after the interview. Parking was horrible at the new building, but the older building had plenty of parking (I got there early). The recruiter was very open with feedback and said that I solved the problem quickly and optimally and that they really loved me and that I was almost perfect - but they only want perfection. So I didn't get the offer. Try again in 6 months, she said.

    Entretien

    Usual Recruiter call, followed by tech screen. From my experience(two times) so far, The interviewers are junior engineers and looking to hire more college grads rather than experience person. It's not that I wasn't able to complete coding challenge but everytime they find some excuse to pass me on, even though I was able to complete the problem in time. Questions are pretty simple and very basic

    For anyone taking interview at Facebook, without a referral I would recommend to avoid onsite for 1st round, and better take it on Phone.

    Entretien

    The interview was 5-6 hours of whiteboard problems. The pace of the interview was very quick, with barely enough time to simply write the solutions to the problems. Almost the entire time was spent standing at the whiteboard. At least one of the problems was quite long. The interviewer was late and cutting into the next round. He spent the time I was solving the problem typing into chat on his laptop. I left the interview expecting a good chance of an offer as I had solved most of the problems except for running out of time in that case. As a senior candidate, I don't feel the expected value of the return on preparation and time to do the interview was worth it, given the probability of no-hire for what seems to have been minor concerns.

    Entretien

    First, I was contacted by the company recruiter through LinkedIn, then I had a phone conversation with some technical questions, next, I got a screen interview. You can take either online or in person. Since I was only 15 minutes drive from Facebook, I took it in person; within two days, I was invited for the onsite interview that took almost a day including free lunch there. They asked me if I want more time to prepare the interviews. I said I wanted the interviews soon. In respective, it was a mistake on my side. I did not prepare enough.

    J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris 3 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Facebook (Seattle, WA (États-Unis)) en juillet 2016.

    Entretien

    I was solicited by FB recruiter through LinkedIn. I followed up given my perception of FB being fast pace and open culture. After PS, I went on-site which contains the standard 5 rounds: behavioral & culture fit; coding; coding; design; design.

    I was never a fan of behavioral questions and never felt such questions are inspirational, FB is no difference. There was a quick 10-minute coding problem near the end of this round --- you have no time to think but just to code it up. The first coding problem is simple but a little tedious to write code. The second coding problem is medium difficulty with two parts. The first part is simple and I quickly code it. I had to think about the second part to identify the algorithm but had no time to implement it.

    In both design rounds, despite the interviewer’s claim that the problem is opened-ended without perfect answer, and what’s important is the thought process, he didn’t really mean it --- a solution that perfectly matches what the interviewer had in mind is expected. The interviewer, graduated from school a few years back, does not have rich project experiences to handle deviations from his standard solution. The interviewer simply likes to move fast on the track of his solution. Any deviation from that track becomes a distraction instead of part of true problem solving process.

    Overall I am disappointed with FB interview process. The FB interview loop obviously not really evaluate and identify true problem solving skills or experiences but just how fast you can write bug-free code for simple algorithm problem with little or no time to think. It effectively requires that you have coded the same or very similar problem very recently. I am confident on my coding and problem solving skills and like to present the daily true me instead of an interview-prepared me.

    FB hires lots of young graduates and expect them to write fast code. Maybe coding fast and breaking things is fine for web pages, but I suspect how terrible their back-end infrastructure would be due to the code fast mentality.

    Entretien

    I was contacted by a recruiter, and scheduled a phone screen at my convenience. Apparently they hire with no job in mind and you are to find a specific job after being blessed as worthy. The phone screen happened on time and the interviewer was polite. This is a very low bar, I realize, but after a few interviews at companies where these basic logistics were badly screwed up, this was sadly a pleasant surprise.
