Post FB Interview Questions

T-Mobile / Eng yeeeeeeeet

Had my onsite interview yesterday with FB for E4/E5 general SWE. Wondering if anyone knew what the typical response time is? I emailed my recruiter but got no response about the timeline. I was under the impression feedback was immediate.

I feel like I did well on everything except for one of the follow up questions for the coding interview and system design.
I feel like my system design interviewer didn’t like me and he didn’t wanna be there; gave the vibe off that the interview was a waste of his time.

What does FB’s hiring bar look like? Do all the coding interviews have to be perfect?

YOE: 2.5 including 1 year of internship

    E3 ~= 3 YOE. E4 ~=5/6. E5 = 6+ YOE. You should be interviewed as E3/E4. No way you would be setup for E5 loop

    Isn't it that Facebook has a hiring freeze for lower than E5?

      If that were the case my onsite would’ve been canceled.

    Well I just gave you a time frame so be on the look out. And it's good that you have the work ethic to climb the ladder you will need it

    Lmfao why would you think you will get E4 with such a small short YOE. Did the recruiter promise you? Well if you really are interviewing for E4 good luck and you should hear back in less than a week (general case)

      I just assumed E4 was entry level for people already in industry and E3 was for university recruits only? I’d be more than happy with E3, I know I have the work ethic to do well there once I get in.
      Also, I don’t think they have system design interview for E3.

      That’s good to know. How much do they look at system design for E3? And is it normal to have 3 rounds of coding? My coding interviews were all on point except for the 2nd one, made a mistake on the follow up question.

      For E3 they should see that you can solve a problem that doesn't really have to consider scaling too much. You should be able to scope out somethings ask the right questions. And it's normal to have that many coding rounds.
