Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England

Average Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Meta (London, England) in May 2022

Interview

In terms of the automatization, everything is great. I really like the first screening call, the interviewer was really friendly. But 2nd interview was quite strange, the interviewer wasn't able to turn on her camera. She sounded absolutely away from the conversation. It's already more than a week passed and I still didn't get a feedback

Average Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Meta (Bucharest, Bucuresti) in Mar 2022

Interview

First call with The recruiter who approached me on LinkedIn, Second with a Lead Recruiter, fallow up with the first recruiter for feedback and preparation for the fallowing 3 interviews 45 minutes each with lead, Sourcer and manager. Typical for an American company, a lot of questions regarding bias, conflict, behavioural questions, more to do with the company than with the job related with the interview. 2 months in process, 6h in total for interviews, 1h actually about sourcing. Received feedback after a week because I asked for it via email that they decided to go with someone else even though I was a strong candidate.

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Meta

Interview

Went from relatively decent to extremely confusing, and ultimately a complete waste of my time. Started out simple enough. An R4R recruiter reached out to me regarding openings for Technical Sourcers. I formally applied and had an on-site January 11th. After the on-site I was told that I received an “all hire” packet with strong feedback, which put me at the top of the list in as far as receiving an offer. This is where things started to fall apart. After weeks of waiting on next steps and communicating back and forth with my recruiter, there seemed to be a stand still that was supposedly due to Meta waiting for more Roles to drop in order to send out offers. Keep in mind this whole time more job openings were being posted by the company and other candidates were receiving offers for other teams. After literally a month, finally my packet started to get circulated to Recruiting/Hiring managers for teams to look at. However instead of viewing my packet and sending an offer, I was constantly indirectly asked about my work history and reasoning for some of my job changes, mind you all things I had already explained during my INTERVIEW in which all of the interviewers agreed that my experience and answers warranted an All Hire packet. So for 3 weeks I was constantly communicating with my R4R recruiter answering questions the hiring managers had about my LinkedIn profile. All throughout this time multiple recruiters from Meta are viewing my LinkedIn, pretty much not even factoring in my on-site interview at all. Finally after well passed the 1 month mark of really not having any idea of where I was at in the process, I tell the R4R recruiter that regardless of the decision, I need clarity on where I am in their hiring process, since I received great feedback from my interview, yet it doesn’t seem to be taken into account at all…and now I am being questioned about my work history which my interviewers had no issues with at all. I finally receive an email thanking me for my interest and to “apply in 6 months” since my feedback was so great. From this experience and from my research of other candidates who did receive offers who had way less relevant experience that I had, what I take away from Meta’s interview process is that it is more of a LinkedIn popularity contest than it is actually trying to recruit successful recruiters. Image plays a bigger role in the hiring decision than your actual recruiting experience.

The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Meta (Toronto, ON) in Feb 2022

Interview

Meta's sourcer reached out to me on LinkedIn and we scheduled an initial phone screen to understand the position and my experience. This is followed by 3 back-to-back 30mins interview. The questions are scripted to avoid biases. The interviewers are nice. Prior to the interview, you will be provided with a brief overview on what to expect for the interview.

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Meta (Redwood City, CA) in Feb 2022

Interview

Process started off amazing. I completed the whole process and waited for a final update which took almost 3 week. I finally received an update to say the Technical Sourcer position is now on hold for quite some time. I was beyond excited for this opportunity and thought I did very well in the interview process. It was very discouraging to go through that whole process just to hear the position is on hold.

Interview Questions
  • Mainly situational questions about collaboration, initiative and candidate engagement. One question I do remember is have you experience any bias?

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Meta in Feb 2022

Interview

I completed 4 rounds of interviews (2 recruiter calls, a 90min video call, and what was labeled to me as a “casual chat to determine team fit”. Process took about a month and some days. Everyone I met with was polite and seemed friendly. After my 90min video call (which was supposed to be a final), my recruiter set me up for what I was told was a “casual chat” with a hiring manager. After that call I was told that I wasn’t a fit for the role. Asked for feedback, and was told it’s company policy that they don’t share feedback. Feels like my time was completely wasted.

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Meta (Seattle, WA) in Jan 2022

Interview

A Sourcer R4R reached out to me regarding the role. First 30 mins call with the Sourcer R4R. The call was based on basic questions related to current role, resume etc. Moving forward to the virtual onsite which consisted of 3 rounds of 30 mins each

Interview Questions
  • Questions were based on Candidate Engagement Initiative and Collaboration If you are smart enough, please do not waste your time in interviewing for them. The recruiters themselves reach out to you & in the beginning everything looks good & merry, but they show their true colors post the onsite. During the prep call, they atleast tell you 5-6 times to be "transparent" with them in terms of interviewing with other companies or any other competing offers, however when it comes to them showing "transparency" they fail at it misreably. Post my onsite, the recruiter has told me that they will have the feedback within 1 week, but I should reach out to them if I get any offer in the meanwhile. As I was actively interviewing with other companies, I did get a competing FTE offer with another company & emailed the sourcer & the recruiter letting me know that I have an offer & it would be great if they can give me any feedback irrespective of it being positive or negative. I kept emailing them for past 2-3 days , and there was absolutely "NO RESPONSE". Ironically, Meta has a "Candidate Engagement" section as a part of their interview process & the kind of candidate experience they demonstrate is just TERRIBLE!!! They have this idea that if a candidate is interviewing for them, the candidate is begging to get that job

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Meta in Jan 2022

Interview

The process overall took a month (which for this kind of role is too much), first 2 stages passed very well and professional. Then I have passed bunch of sessions about behavioral questions with 3 different people where the situations are the same but paraphrased in different way (which I assume if they shortlist sourcer they may know that sourcers mostly train other tech people for these questions) . In any case people were good and relaxed but the process itself wasn't the best one for so much "branded company". Then I waited for my feedback and I was only told that I am rejected without any details. So, just one suggestion please get out from recruitment traditional style and try new better way of sourcing and hiring with individual approach
