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.

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Facebook (United States)

Interview

Facebook went through my university so I went to a meet and greet and got an in-person interview that day after a recruiter briefly looked at my resume. That day, I got 2 straight 45 min interviews where they asked me some coding questions and then I got a chance to ask questions. The first interview wasn't bad but thought the second interview had harder questions. I heard back within a day.

Interview Questions
  • One of the questions: Given a 2D square input of 0s and 1s (0 is water and 1 is land), if adjacent squares are considered connected (including diagonals), how many separate land masses are there in the input?

Second round interview was with senior management, it was very structured with many questions and it was timed. You are definitely under pressure for time. It was difficult to prepare for some of the questions they asked.
