Candidature

J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. Le processus a pris une semaine. J'ai passé un entretien à Facebook en juillet 2019.

Entretien

I submitted an online application and got referred by an employee. A recruiter reached out to me via email, and we scheduled a phone screen within a week. The recruiter called about 10 minutes late, then proceeded to give an overview of the position before asking a few very basic questions about my experience. One of his questions was "how many lines of code have you written?" which is an absurd thing to ask of someone who has been in the industry almost 15 years. Is there a right answer to that question? If so, how do you evaluate the technical ability of somebody who has been counting lines of code for 15 years? In any case, he said there were no openings in the city in which I applied for the position (despite the listing on their website), and offered to keep my resume on file. Not holding my breath for a call because overall, his comments and handling of the interview indicated that he had already made up his mind that I was not the right candidate, and the whole process was just a formality. What a waste of my time.

    J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris +4 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Facebook en juin 2019.

    Entretien

    Recruiter reached out for a software engineering role. Those roles don't exist in Chicago so I inquired about the Solutions engineering role.

    Spoke to a recruiter, learned about the role and spent about a month studying for the phone screen. Did about 50 Leetcode problems in preparation. Got a question I had practiced but when I offered my solution the interviewer said "that wasn't optimal" and never recovered. Also, she showed me some sample outputs that didn't make any sense to me.

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Facebook (Menlo Park, CA (États-Unis)) en mai 2019.

    Entretien

    Contacted by a recruiter and had a 15 minute rushed conversation with the recruiter. He was a little slow - he asked me my location 3 times and kept asking me the same thing twice. He was clearly in a rush and didn't let me ask him any questions before ending the phone call. I emailed him with some questions later on in the day and he didn't respond to those. He only responded to matters relating to scheduling the phone interview. All of his replies were of course templated auto-responses. Very unprofessional.

    He then sent me an online quiz:

    Given an array of n integers where n > 1, nums, return an array output such that output[i] is equal to the product of all the elements of nums except nums[i].

    After I submitted that, a couple of days later, he asked to set up a phone interview with a Solutions Engineer.

    Phone screen:

    The interviewer called 5 minutes late. He was very inexperienced at interviewing. 8 months on the job.
    Questions:
    - Why do you want to be a solutions engineer
    - What was the biggest challenge
    - He then asked me a LC hard question (on coderpad):
    Remove Invalid Parentheses - Remove the minimum number of invalid parentheses in order to make the input string valid.

    He has clearly pasted this question from LC or somewhere and he didn't have a clue about what the question was. He wasn't able to answer any of my questions regarding the question it self - I asked him what a valid parentheses was in this scenario and there was a long pause from his side. He was not experienced in interviewing and that combined with his lack of technical skills and sparse knowledge of the question made the interview very difficult.

    He was looking for an 'optimized stack solution' . I wasn't able to come up with it. I did however give him an optimized backtracking and another BFS solution (both of which are optimal solutions) and he wasn't happy with that. He eventually got audibly frustrated and asked to "code it up" and when I asked which solution, he said "anything". I coded up the solution (which I compiled later on an IDE and it worked beautifully).

    I am not sure what this optimized stack solution is but clearly not solving the problem EXACTLY the way he wanted it was grounds to reject me. Really closed minded of Facebook. Apparently they let anyone to conduct an interview.

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris +12 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Facebook en janvier 2019.

    Entretien

    I got an email from a recruiter at Facebook in January 2019, asking if I wanted to discuss an opportunity. The following week we had a recruiter screen. He told me that he had my resume from 2016 (three years prior!), when I applied to this job. It had been so long I hadn't even remembered applying! He asks when I would like to start the interview process, and I tell him that I'm comfortable starting at any time.

    The next Friday I received an email about the first round - an online coding challenge. The recruiter's email both said that I would be given 45 minutes to complete it AND later that I would be given 25 minutes to complete it, and to call him with any questions over the weekend I had to complete it. I both emailed and called to get this big time discrepancy clarified, and he did not respond until almost midnight Sunday night (it was due Monday afternoon). When he did respond (45 minutes), he extended the due date by 12 hours.

    His email also had a FAQ section about the question, which was very misleading. Without breaching the NDA I signed, I'll give you an analogy. The FAQ was all about baseball - there are 3 strikes before you're out, 4 balls to be walked, etc - so I expected and prepared for a "baseball" question. But then the question I got was about "football". Sure, I should know about it all, but it was so misleading that I thought I was given the wrong question! I honestly think he copy/pasted information about another question (that was for 25 minutes and about "baseball") into my email, causing all of these problems. Regardless of what the email says, prepare for any type of question in this round.

    Entretien

    Recruiter connected with me over email and scheduled some time to discuss the interview process. He went over my resume and asked about what I want in my next role.
    Then the second round was a coding challenge for 25min on Glider. I successfully passed all the test cases(calculate product of all the elements at each index but leaving the data at current index).
    Third round was telephonic round with a solution engineer. It started on time and interviewer asked about the my background, why I am interested in this position. Then if I have done before client facing job, what are the challenges faced and then what was the learning from those challenges. Then he started writing a coding question on coderPad. The question was simple implement sortedIterator which has input of list of lists. Implement the next and hasNext function. I was too nervous and did provided the solution after the hints but was not able to complete it.

    Entretien

    A recruiter reached out to me through email and I asked for some time to study up and practice my algorithm questions. A month later I was sent a coding interview. Once I passed that I had another phone interview where I was asked a pretty standard leetcode algorithm type question. I was scheduled for an onsite and was sent a lot of great material to prepare for the interview. There are a lot more behavioral questions than most SWE roles because this role involves more customer interaction. I initially thought I didn't do that well on the system design question, but the coding questions were pretty standard leetcode questions, and were ones that I had practiced/seen before (Mentioned I had seen the questions). 2 days after the interview I was contacted and told I got the job.

    pretty straightforward. I got called up by a recruiter who talked about the solutions engineering team and then asked me several behavioral interview questions. The recruiter also asked me to share about my prior experience.

    Recruiter Screen, Timed Coding Challenge, Technical Phone Screen, 5 hour on-site at Menlo Park (alternating between behavioral interview questions, technical interview questions all with different recruiters).

    Overall, it was a very streamlined and quick process compared to most of other companies.

    Recruiter reached out to me, he pushed me to accept the process instead of helping me find another role I was more suited for. The job description stated 2 years + but I was an entry level candidate. Finished the coding test as required (linear time complexity for problem) and it passed all the test cases. I was rejected the next day with concerns to my "lack of experience" which I pointed out explicitly in the recruiter phone call.
