I applied online. I interviewed at Facebook (New York, NY) in Mar 2020

Interview

A recruiter contacted me over email and set up a phone interview for the following week for a 15-minute call. I guess next round would have been with a hiring manager

Interview Questions
  • PLEASE DON'T TAKE THE PHONE SCREENING LIGHTLY! I did and got rejected. I was expecting SQL questions and in general talk about my resume but she asked me a question on product sense and I was completely unprepared for it. Creation of Facebook user groups has gone down by 20%, what will you do? sounds simple but I messed it up so badly. I was just blabbering anything in an unstructured way, I sounded so stupid and not even fit for a small company forget Facebook. The recruiter was nice and she did not say anything but I were to hear my own answer, I would reject myself on spot. I regret it so much wish I could have prepared for it. I hope someone sees this and it helps them. The SQL questions were easy and I did answer them correctly- what kind of joins to get only common rows, what the natural sorting order etc.

Interview

This was a thorough and lengthy process. First step was a 30 minute conversation with a recruiter to gauge experience, background, and motivation for joining the company. Next was a 45 minute interview with a UX researcher, who asked me to scope out a hypothetical UX research project (this was fun!). Next was a "full loop" interview (a virtual equivalent to an onsite presentation during COVID) in which I presented on some of my work and then had three, one-on-one interviews with researchers that were focused on product sense, skills, and behavioral questions. I then had a final couple of conversations that were specific to the team I was applying for. Overall, it was a very well managed process, and I felt prepared at each step of the way by the recruiter, who gave me information about what to expect during each interview and how to prepare. The only quirk throughout the process is that I wasn't being interviewed for a specific role until the very end -- the hiring process is designed to evaluate your fit with the org and your skills in a general sense before finding you a specific role.
