Catalog of FAANG interview information

Sep 26, 2019 143 Comments

Hey Blind, I'm currently interviewing for SWE positions at several companies and periodically read Rooftop Slushie to help with my interviews.

I made a reading list and I picked out some posts that were helpful for me which I organized by company. There aren't tons of posts about SWE for every company but there were other posts about other positions that were still helpful.

If you work for these companies, it would be great if you could confirm any of the information here.

If you're interviewing, you can use this together with other resources to help prepare for your interviews. Hope this helps!

    OP, hope you get a great job offer. If you're the kind of person who would compile and then share out a list like this to help others, any team would be lucky to have you.

    Once I've finally accepted an offer, I'd be happy to share FB M1, G L7, and MSFT L68 experiences. Blind seems to be lacking at the higher levels, especially the latter two.

      I accepted FB offer. Post is written and coming tomorrow. It's ridiculously long, but it's hard to cover a 4 month process.

    For Airbnb, there is a secret group in wechat for Chinese only, where their engineers leak their interview questions and answers.

      @booking - interviews still happen in English. But there is lot of difference between how native speaker expresses from non native. It sometimes a barrier in people understanding each other especially in high stress environment like interviews.

      I looked 1point3acres and it’s free. What subscription is there? Also, has anyone been successful with amazon questions on this site?

    LP advice is pretty solid. “Convinced a group of friends to eat pizza for dinner instead of tacos.”
