Didn’t get the third question onsite

Microsoft It’sOkay
Feb 5 30 Comments

I got through two coding questions during my Facebook onsite coding interview and the interviewer seemed satisfied. But then they asked me a third question with the bit of time left. I thought about it aloud a bit but didn’t get to talk through a solution. Am I fucked?

  • You are interviewing to join the burning ship as the rats jump off. Don't beat yourself up as you win by not working there, a place where employees have to buy burner phones to talk about how their jobs stink....

      Oh so anonymous sources got it. Do you know how stupid you sound? People complain in google on memegen and internally on fb’s tools but of course you wouldn’t know this because you’re an outsider.

      goodgulf sounds salty 🧂

      2 questions is fine. My guess is that the third question is to really stretch your ability, one can still pass with answering just two.

      The rats jumped off as we put out the fire. Now the ship is being repaired and it’s cleaner than ever. 👌

      I tried to grind Leetcode some months ago and did maybe 50 questions before I got frustrated. Then I spent the couple weeks before the interview doing an hour a day from CTCI. And then I relaxed the last couple days before the interview. Don’t know if I’m the best example tho.

      Leetcode interview culture has so much to do with luck that I wouldn’t take it personal tbh

    I did one per interview. So it depends.

      I also always ask one non-leetcode question only. However I know there are people here who make their interview a leetcode recitation race

    Based on blind , there’s people who did even 3 per round and didn’t get an offer ; 2 seems to be pretty good . How many did you do per round ?

    Why do you want to work here so badly? The perks, prestige, brand? If so, you're chasing the wrong things.

    Facebook expects 2+ mediums per 50 minutes? Jeez. So basically you have to know the solution for medium in 5 minutes and be able to code it flawlessly in 10 minutes?
