    Software Development Engineer Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Facebook in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through the jobs portal. The recruiter contacted me in March and she set up a telephonic interview of 45 minutes 2 days later.
    There was some problem with sound during the interview. The interviewer wasn't audible clearly. So I had to ask him to repeat every 1-2 minutes. But the interview was very cool and he didn't mind that. First he asked me about my projects and then he asked me some basic algorithmic questions. I wrote the code for the first question. I misunderstood the second question and only solved it partially.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 3+ months - interviewed at Facebook in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Telephonic interview and then hiring event on Hyd.

    Interview Questions
    • It was one of the easiest interview that i had and completely unexpected from company like facebook. Limited set of questions and one question per round. Total 2 coding questions and one design question and lastly cultural fit round. Its completely unfair to have less number of questions and that too relatively easy ones. It doesnt give much scope of creativity and thinking and a small mistake can prove to be too costly. As compared to this, Google,Amazon,Microsoft each have 4-5 rounds with 2-3 questions in each round thus giving enough scope to express yourself.

      Questions asked in event: Implement hashmap, count distinct numbers in a large file, design pub-sub, design twitter feed system

    Interview Details

    mail communication at an event for women hiring. The Indian woman interviewer told my company that I have appeared for their interview since she saw many good product related contributions. She rejected me for my past companies and lack of American accent. My manager and the hiring manager then wanted to throw me out of the company and convinced the interviewer to tell the HR that I have revealed confidential information to fb during interview. HR asked me to leave the company saying it was an elimination of role and gave me 3 months basic pay, and was telling me about some confidentiality policy.

    Software Engineer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    The process started out with a pre-screening test which was coding based. There was one question to be done in 60 minutes. The question was fairly simple for me and I completed it quickly. Then, I was called for the onsite interviews a week later. The interview was supposed to last for 45 minutes. Now, in my interview, I was first asked about the best experience I have had in my last two years. Then, the interviewer quickly moved on to the coding questions. There were two questions for which I had to explain my solution and then code it on the whit board. I was able to both the questions, but I guess the interviewer might not have liked the way I had explained my approach as I was not called for the next interview. The interviewer was not very vocal and did not really participate in the discussion where you explain the approach. That is why it becomes difficult to detect if the interviewer is understanding your words or not. Anyways, it was a some experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Given a binary tree, which is not necessarily balanced, print the nodes in the tree in a level-wise manner. Also, nodes on the same level should be printed on a single line.

      A modification of the question was added later in which I cannot really add a "level" variable in the structure of the node in the tree.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    good people. Know their stuff. You need to read the job description really well and be sure that you speak to the requirements because *they* may not ask for them precisely in the interview: none the less are expecting you to cover these. They are perhaps more concerned with standard methods than they initially project. Carefree attitude in some employees in interview process, others are VERY interested to hear about process.
