Candidature

J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 3 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Facebook (Palo Alto, CA (États-Unis)) en septembre 2011.

Entretien

I've applied from facebook.com/careers and 3 weeks later a recruiter sent an email that they were interested in to make an interview. They were very kind and interested. I got a detailed instruction about the process. Also they gave me some blog posts or other links that I've already found at my company research. They said that the phone interview worth to prepare and I may take time to study. I wanted 2 weeks to get ready and they accepted that. Than, someone else (another recruiter) got in touch to create the schedule of phone interview. After creating appointment, before that 2 weeks, they called me to just talk. It took about 5 mins. I asked some questions about the company and recruitment process.

After two weeks I got a call and that was an engineer. He asked me some questions about my background. After answers, I've signed in to an online editor to write some code in shared session. They asked two algorithm questions and I thought I was not so bad. After these questions, he asked to me that do I have any question about company or technology. I've asked something to just ask. He answered them very kindly and detailed. After 45 mins at talk, he said that's time to go.

About 5 hours later, I got an email from the first recruiter that I'm not suitable. Also the recruiter has added as a contact on linkedin. That was completely sign of they are nice and they want über people.

    Entretien

    A friend who's an engineer there passed my resume along. Had two phone interviews which I found quite difficult. They both had me code in collabedit.org, and the second also actually ran my code on codepad.org - that was a surprise! I did not do perfectly on the phone interview questions, but still got through.

    They brought me on-site for an interview day which included a tour, lunch, a talk, and four 1:1 interviews. One-half of the first interview included some questions about leadership, teamwork etc., and the rest were all technical. One of the interviewers seemed to be in a grumpy mood, but that's the luck of the draw. The whiteboard coding questions were not too bad and I think I got them all, though with some silly mistakes along the way. I'd agree with the previous reviewer who said their questions are not as difficult as Google's- though perhaps they therefore have higher expectations as to how quickly/flawlessly you solve them.

    On my way out they gave me a goodie bag with some swag. Oh, and at one point I saw Zuckerberg milling about. Got an email a week or so later- I would not be winning the Facebook IPO lottery!

    Entretien

    Facebook came to our career fair and I applied online. I received an on campus interview. Their fulltime interview process for new grads works like the following:

    1 on 1 interview with a Facebook Engineer (1st day)
    1 on 1 interview with a Facebook Engineer (2nd day, if you did well enough the first day)

    On site interview at Facebook HQ

    Their interviews are almost completely technical.

    J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. J'ai passé un entretien à Facebook (Menlo Park, CA (États-Unis)) en février 2013.

    Entretien

    Initially applied online, but did not hear back after a couple weeks. Asked a friend to submit a referral and I was contacted within 24 hours. I was working up against a deadline, and they were able to set up the phone screen quickly. After the phone screen, I was notified they would like to bring me on-site.

    The on-site interviews went quickly and smoothly. During one of my interviewers, I had to inform the interviewer twice in a row that I had seen the question before on an interview (which was embarrassing, but we quickly moved on to a question I hadn't seen).

    After contacting my references, Facebook e-mailed me about 10 days later to let me know they were going to make an offer.

    Entretien

    I was selected for an on-campus screening interview. The interview was pretty easy compared to other companies. After the initial ice breakers, was asked an open ended question related to area of my interest followed by 2 coding questions to be solved on a paper. Basic questions testing if you can write code and know data structures. Was informed in a couple of hours that I am selected for on-site interview.

    The process to select the dates and flights, hotels was smooth. There were about 30-40 other new grad candidates and intern on the day of interview. Every new grad had just 3 coding interviews one of which was behavioral interview for checking if the candidate would be a good fit. The other two were ninja coding interviews. I had two coding questions in the behavioral round which I answered well. Two question in the first ninja round which were pretty wasy and I coded pretty quickly but messed up a basic thing in the first question. Had time for only one question in the second ninja round. This was the only tougher question in the interviews and I got the ideal answer in the end but didn't have time to finish the coding part.

    I think the basic mistake in the second interview and the third interview messed up my chances. I feel the company puts importance on how fast you come up with perfect answer. That's the questions are simple. So you are expected to be quick thinking and are expected to not mess up something so simple.

    There was lunch, awesome tour of campus and two tech talk after the interviews. This was one of the best interview days I had this season (I have had 4 on-site interview till now). No all day long torture of interviews and pretty awesome talks and tour giving an inside view of the company. Would interview again if given a chance!

    First got one phone interview invitation from a recruiter and it went fairly well. I heard back from my recruiter the next day to set up onsite interview. The onsite one includes 4 interviews (it was 3 before) and two of them are completely technical.For the other two, a mix of behavior and technical questions. The coding problems are not very hard but make sure your code is clean and bug-free.

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris +2 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Facebook en juin 2014.

    Entretien

    After applying online I got a very casual recruiting email a few weeks later reaching out about a specific product engineering position, in fact I wasn't sure if it was real (wasn't addressed to me), but I looked up the recruiter and she was listed on linked in as employee of Facebook, so I responded. It took a while to decide if she could continue as my recruiter or if I needed to go through a university specific recruiter, but once my first phone interview was setup the process moved quite quickly.

    The first phone interview was a 45 minute coding interview. Pretty standard for the big companies. I completed 2 questions. What was the most unique about this process, is the feedback from that initial interview was shared with me by the recruiter - giving me that so I can improve on it for the in person interview, which I really think is a great reflection of Facebook's open culture.

    Facebook, like Google, generally doesn't hire for specific teams, however, they took the time to find a project at Facebook I would find especially interesting and fill my in person interview with people on that team so I could ask questions about it.

    Facebook has three types of interviews which they call Ninja, Pirate and Jedi (because they are the best kind of dorks). I had two Ninja Interviews and one Jedi. Ninja is typical coding interview where they ask 1-2 coding questions. The Jedi interview is culture fit where they ask you how you work on team, but you will also spend half the time coding. I think Pirate are focused on distributed systems type questions, but I was informed that they often skip these questions for New Grads without any explicit experience, because it's something most people learn from working in the industry and they don't get strong data from those interviews.

    It's also worth noting that during my job search I had coding interviews with 18 people and 17 of them were men, Facebook is the one company where I had a technical interview with a woman, although it was still the Jedi interview.

    I applied to Google at the same time as Facebook and their process moved a little faster, so I got an offer from Google the day before I went in for an in person interview, thankfully I had enough time to decide for Facebook to get their counter offer in, and the recruiter's care in setting me up with that team was a big part in what made me decide to go with Facebook.

    Négociation

    I had looked up new grad offers for 2014 before I received the offer, and was given exactly the standard, which was also the highest offer I received, so I did not negotiate.
