Program Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA (US)
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Facebook (San Francisco, CA (US)).

Interview

Initial phone screen with a recruiter and then a panel interview. The questions were not overly difficult. I thought I did well but I never heard from the recruiter. I emailed asking for an update and still didn't hear back. Disappointing over all.

    Program Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    My interview experience at Facebook was overwhelmingly positive. The process took about 4 weeks from start to offer.
    1st round: phone screen with recruiter
    2nd round: video screen with hiring manager
    3rd round: 4 back-to-back interviews over video conference with my hiring manager, his manager, my peer, and a cross-functional partner

    The interview process went very quickly because I had another offer that I was able to leverage for speed. My recruiter was awesome - she responded promptly to each of my emails and also sent me a 7 page deck to help prep me for my interviews. I have never seen something like this before and greatly appreciated that my interviewers were not trying to trick me but rather wanted to get a good sense for my experience.

    A helpful tip that a friend & current FB employee told me - FB really values candidates who embody their values, so I read through the company's values and made sure to weave them in when talking about my experience. I could tell this really resonated with my interviewers.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Pretty standard process. Recruiter could have explained expectations better. Most interviewers were on time so no complains there. The company seems to have a certain preference for out-of-state candidates.

    Interview

    Quick and straightforward. Was contacted by a recruiter, had a phone screening interview and then a 1:1 with a leadership team member. The phone call with a recruiter was more to inform me about the position and then also to verify that my experience was relevant to the position. In both interviews I was given the opportunity to ask questions at the end.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Facebook (Seattle, WA (US)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    The interview process was supposed to have between 3 and 5 stages. I completed the first three stages. Stage 1 - Phone screen with recruiter. Stage 2 - written assignment drafting team communication. Stage 3 - deep dive presentation.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to develop a 20 minute deep dive presentation on a particular project. I was asked to give the presentation over Blue Jeans video conferencing app. I was given less then 1 day to prepare the presentation. They then pretended that they had not received the presentation file to see how I would respond.   3 Answers

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Menlo Park, CA (US)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Menlo Park, CA (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    1) Phone interview with a Facebook recruiter
    2) VC with Hiring Manager
    3) Onsite interview with 5 people

    The overall process was good up until the onsite interviews. This is where it started to go wrong and why I decided to not accept a position, this isn't a company I want to work for by choice -so why, I think there are three reasons:

    1) First, the questions asked in the offsite were not aligned with the prep from the recruiter. Which is ok but I felt they were not aligned nor connected and so I felt a little misguided and not as prepared as I could have been
    Second, I was not sold to the people. I thought Facebook was supposed to have some of the best people - not for some I met. For example, one interviewer asked me about some typical program management related topics and I just got that feeling I knew more than they did. I am not trying to be arrogant and I may be wrong, but I used standard industry-standard terms in which the interviewer had to clarify what they meant and I am not sure they grasped some of the basic topics I was talking about. I didnt meet anyone that Wow'd me.... at all... this surprised me.
    Lastly, I think this is the biggest, the recruiters ghosted me for a period after the interview. There is no excuse for this and is THE single most annoying thing Facebook did. It is rude and for me was the deciding factor not to work for the company.
    I think the biggest thing is communications.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Mountain View, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Compared to the other FANG companies and other tech companies, Facebook is by far the snobbiest company I ever interacted with. I should have know because they were snobby at the women at tech conference I attended earlier this year in San Jose as many attendees I know mentioned that they felt that way too. The recruiters are extremely inexperienced and immature and as someone else pointed out online “They think it’s a privilege they even took the time to talk to you.” Google, Apple, Amazon are WAY more pleasant to interact with and needless to say I’m happy FB did not move forward with me as I’m going with another company. They have inexperienced recruiters and managers making hiring decisions no wonder the company is going down the toilet and Zuckerberg and Peter Thiel are selling so many of their shares. Recruiter was late to my phone screen and I was told after my interview that I would hear back in 3 days because I had an “interesting” background. Didn’t hear anything at all. Then when I followed up almost 2 weeks later was told that there was a lot of competition for position so they would keep my in mind for other positions.
