Catalog of FAANG interview information

Hey Blind, I'm currently interviewing for SWE positions at several companies and periodically read Rooftop Slushie to help with my interviews.

I made a reading list and I picked out some posts that were helpful for me which I organized by company. There aren't tons of posts about SWE for every company but there were other posts about other positions that were still helpful.

If you work for these companies, it would be great if you could confirm any of the information here.

If you're interviewing, you can use this together with other resources to help prepare for your interviews. Hope this helps!

    For Airbnb, there is a secret group in wechat for Chinese only, where their engineers leak their interview questions and answers.

      There is lot of racism tone in this discussion thread. But as a matter of fact this is what I heard from my recruiter friend. She gets higher rate of inclined to onsite interview, if she match Indian to Indian, Chinese to Chinese or white to white for telephone interview round. She doesn’t think it is racial bias, it is just that there are able to understand each other better.

      @Amazon Onsite. If the candidate and interviewer can speak the same dialect, do they speak their first language instead of English during the interview session?

      I'm curious and really asking because I can only speak English. I don't know how multilingual people do interviews.

      Very interesting. So people feel more comfortable when they have less barrier to understand the other person. How you look make up big part of building the trust, next comes how you say things(accent) and then what you say.
      Reminded of Nelson Mandela quote - “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.”

      @booking - interviews still happen in English. But there is lot of difference between how native speaker expresses from non native. It sometimes a barrier in people understanding each other especially in high stress environment like interviews.

      It usually helps to write them down, and then recording yourself on the phone. You won’t learn them by heart exactly, but you’ll learn the gist of the story, important details, and catchy phrases.

      Tip about Apple, basically every group does their own thing for interviews. I interviewed with a bunch of teams, each had its own flavor and style of interviewing and did great on some (with offers) and poorly on others. When I joined I was then somewhat free to come up with my own interview questions and conducted many interviews. So if you don’t do well on one or more, just keep trying other teams.
