On-site interview breakdown.

I received my schedule for my Facebook onsite interview and aside from behavioural and system design, I have 2 career + coding interviews which the document says both include 25 minutes whiteboarding on an algorithm.

Are career + coding interviews just a normal algorithm whiteboarding interview? I assumed they would be closer to 45 minutes working on a problem.

    Score really high might be interpreted as an overconfidence issue on the other side: think when you need to tell what is you weakness

      That may have come across badly, I definitely don't have overconfidence, if anything the opposite, I'm always honest about my areas for improvement, maybe a little too honest at times.

      I guess It's more that I find it easier to handle my nerves in behavioural then straight coding interviews. The fact they are 25 minutes makes me assume they may be smaller easier problems.

    Career interview are questions about how you approach conflicts, how you behave as a co-worker, your empathy, leadership.. They keep 15 mins at the end, to have you solve a problem that's a little bit easier than the rest (not always true though) yet again with the most optimized complexity bug-free.

    In my opinion, this is the trickiest type of interviews.

      I always score really high on behavioural interviews. I can struggle with algorithm based interviews at times. Is there a reason for giving career + coding instead of just coding?
