Facebook/Google Onsite Scheduling

After the onsite round of the interview process, Facebook and Google have more steps like the hiring committee and, in Google’s case, product matching and executive review.

So, to maximize the number of job offers you get at the same time, should you schedule F/G onsites a little before onsites at other companies to leave time for their extra steps, or at the same time as onsites at other companies?

    If those companies are your preference, wouldn't you want to schedule them in the end? So that you get plenty of practice?

    Do it a month before. Google is very, very slow.

    • I tried to schedule my Google interview and they scheduled it a month out after 2 weeks of waiting, so 6 weeks after I was told I got the on-site. Then there's the hiring committee, team matching, so probably another month out. Google is very slow.

    FB is indeed very quick, much quicker than Google. On-site to offer in less than a week is pretty common. Can be even faster if you have a deadline.

    Schedule Google the last. They're slow af.
