Could you elaborate on the interview questions? What other stages were involved and how did you go about them? Less

It's essential to demonstrate that you can really go deep... there are plenty of followup questions and (sometimes tangential) angles to explore. There's a lot of Senior Product Designer experts who've worked at Curve, who provide this sort of practice through mock interviews. There's a whole list of them curated on Prepfully. prepfully.com/practice-interviews Less

With a PowerPoint presentation.

Hello, I am a FB employee and I have created an interview prep guide for Facebook interviews, based on my and my colleagues' recent interview experiences. The guide has questions you should expect along with our answers that got us into Facebook. You can find it here: interviewjoy.com/services/interview-process-details/facebook-manager-job-interview-questions-answers-more/ (please do not forget to also look at the reviews at the bottom of that page). Thanks and good luck! Less

I submitted my design challenge noted above.

Through questions like this, interviewers are mostly trying to test your skillset (and its relevance to the role) as robustly as possible, so be prepared for multiple offshoots and followups. It could be a useful exercise to do mocks with friends or colleagues in SurveyMonkey to get a real sense of what the interview is actually like. Alternatively Prepfully has a ton of SurveyMonkey Senior Product Designer experts who provide mock interviews for a pretty reasonable amount. prepfully.com/practice-interviews Less

DuckDuckGo

Design challenge was super basic and very open ended. Not inspiring at all.

2 Answers

I completed the challenge. After it was all said and done, it just seemed like a way to get free work from designers that directly applied to this company, rather than vet your talent level, which can be done with technical interviews and portfolio review (and is why designers spend time on portfolios). Less

There's quite an extended back and forth in actual interviews for questions like this, so nothing quite like real practice. The Prepfully DuckDuckGo Senior Product Designer experts have actually worked in this role, so they're able to do an honest-to-God accurate mock, which really puts you through the paces. prepfully.com/practice-interviews Less

The first interview was to have a conversation about my previous experience while getting a sense of a cultural fit. No difficult question.

I cataloged my experience and provided a two-page critique of the design challenge, as well as spent about 20 hours on the design exercise. I wasn't supplied a brand guideline, so didn't attempt to make the experience exactly as the brand's. I also took an issue with passing along spec work while not being compensated, so used a generic brand so to keep from the IP being assumed as the company's property. (I know, that it even had to come to that :( ...) Less

It's problematic to say the least. I think the other issue with this whole process is that the process to put the work together was considerate and careful. The requests and the organization's response to any of what I sampled was short and came off thoughtless. It's really hard to know or gauge the reason, as there was no feedback as to why the decision was made. I like to think that these interactions are indicative of the type of company I would pass on. Did you receive any feedback for your exercise? Less

Give me a specific example of how you handle conflict or difficult personalities.

1 Answers

Not how I answered but... whenever I get this question I know the internal workings of the team have a significant amount of friction and I generally avoid. Less
