    Senior Recruiter Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (London, England) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I was approached on LinkedIn by one of their in-house recruiters and had a few phone interviews before identifying the right opportunity and coming in for a face to face interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The process is unconventional because as they are hiring for multiple roles, they want to hear what your strengths are before they present a particular job opening. This is exciting as you can already see the variety of teams and projects that they have.   Answer Question
