Facebook Onsite 2 questions per Interview?

Microsoft ShouldI🧐
Jan 25 27 Comments

So I keep hearing that you HAVE to solve 2 questions per interview. That is two tech questions in like 40 minutes.

Is this correct?

If so how is this done without you already knowing the questions. Then what is the point?

    There is no point. You have to know the answers. Leetcode.

    Yes, 2 questions in 45 minutes. I was given 7 during the whole onsite interview: 3 pure algorithmic rounds + 1 mixed behavioral and algorithmic with only one problem. All of them were medium difficulty, no crazy brain teasers. If you spend enough time on leetcode, you will be able to quickly figure out the solution even if you haven't seen those exact problems before.

    Two is not necessary. Depends on the difficulty of the question. Besides, if I sense that you know the answer, it's easy to ask a non leetcode second question.

      Why not ask non-leet to begin with? So it actually gives you some insight into the thought process

      It's up to each interviewer. I ask non leetcode, but naturally can't speak for everyone.

    That sounds about right. Got two big problem solving questions in a Virtual meeting and like 2 or 3 behavioral questions. This was in December 2017 though so they may do something else now.

    • Snapchat / Eng Miranda K
      1 of each

      Some gets 2 med 1 hard

      I think 1 hard 2 med is too much expectations. Unless you are going to start writing the optimal solution immediately after the question finishes.

      Fb is all about how quick you solve things. Ie. How fast you can recognize patterns.

      It’s more of an IQ test. I was there before snapchat

    Yes was 2 for me in each on-site. One smaller simpler problem as a warm up (10-15min). Then more complex (30-35 mins). The question time at the end.
