I have heard that Facebook data scientists are more similar to data analyst or BI engineers in other companies. How true is this?

Btw, do FB data scientist interviews ask LeetCode algorithm questions? Or is it just LeetCode SQL questions?

    FB Data science interview process is mostly SQL and Product questions. There's a 45 minute technical screen before going to the on-site.

    Product questions are more so like "How do you measure the success of Instagram TV?"

    Sql questions are more like: "Write a query to generate a histogram of comments per day".

    I would recommend Interviewquery.com to practice these types of questions. It's like the Leetcode for data science.

    That's odd, strange to see data scientist title without mention of building models in python,R,SAS, or Matlab.
