Salary of Facebook Interns Start from $25,000: See Interview Questions. 29 of the toughest interview questions you’ll have to answer to work at Facebook.

Facebook has often been regarded as one of the best places to work in the tech industry.

Its interns make $25,000 more than the average citizen. And famously, employees on Glassdoor voted Facebook the No. 1 company to work for overall.

But in order to get a job there, you’ll have to answer some tricky questions first.

We’ve compiled some of the toughest Facebook interview questions available on Glassdoor. Whether you’re looking for a programming job or a position doing marketing, Facebook’s interview questions will give you a run for your money.

“There is a building with 100 floors. You are given 2 identical eggs. How do you use 2 eggs to find the threshold floor, where the egg will definitely break from any floor above floor N, including floor N itself.” – Data Scientist candidate.

“If you were going to redesign an ATM machine, how would you do it?” – Product Designer candidate.

“How many birthday posts occur on Facebook on a given day?” – Data Scientist candidate.

“Do you think that Facebook should be available to China?” – User Operations Analyst candidate.

“How much do you charge to wash every window in Seattle?” – Online Sales operations candidate.

“Describe how the website works. (That’s the whole question , with no context.)” – Technical Project Manager candidate.

“How much money is spent on the internet?” – Account Manager candidate.

“How would you design a simpler TV remote control?” – Product Designer candidate.

“How do you deal with communicating less than favorable information?” – Training candidate.

“You’re at a casino with two dice, if you roll a 5 you win, and get paid $10. What is your expected payout? If you play until you win (however long that takes) then stop, what is your expected payout?” – Data Scientist candidate.

“You have two light bulbs and a 100-story building. You want to find the floor at which the bulbs will break when dropped. Find the floor using the least number of drops.” – Software Engineer candidate.

“How would you set up an interview in this room?” — Content Producer candidate.

“How many vacuums are there in the USA?” – Risk Analyst candidate.

“What options do you have, nefarious or otherwise, to stop people on a wireless network you are also on (but have no admin rights to) from hogging bandwidth by streaming videos?” – Production Engineer candidate.

“How many Big Macs does McDonald sell each year in the US?” – Data Scientist candidate.

“How would you build Facebook for blind people?” – Product Manager candidate.

“Tell me your plan of action if you saw that photo uploads suddenly dropped by 50%.” – Operations Associate User Intelligence candidate.

“A Russian gangster kidnaps you. He puts two bullets in consecutive order in an empty six-round revolver, spins it, points it at your head and shoots. *click* You’re still alive. He then asks you, do you want me to spin it again and fire or pull the trigger again. For each option, what is the probability that you’ll be shot?” – Internet Marketing Analyst candidate.

Frank Lawton (R) of Deadwood, South Dakota, fires his revolver during the Canadian Open Fast Draw Championships in Aldergrove, British Columbia, July 20, 2013.

“Should Facebook continue to add features or rely on 3rd party apps?” – Product Designer candidate.

“Pre-IPO, they asked me to write a paper on the valuation of Facebook. They also asked me what I thought the greatest technological advancement was in the past 20 years.” – Software Engineer candidate.

“If you have 100 credit card numbers (and all info) how would you make as much $ possible in 24 hours using only online transactions? (Many follow up questions of how to get around certain fraud deterrents.)” – Ads Risk Associate candidate.

“You are trying to rob houses on a street. Each house has some amount of cash. Your goal is to rob houses such that you maximize the total robbed amount. The constraint is once you rob a house you cannot rob a house adjacent to that house.” – Software Engineer candidate.

“The most difficult question was the 8-hour test, which involved deriving a novel and fairly-involved algorithm, significant CSS/HTML/JS coding, and plenty of opportunities to get something subtly wrong.” – User Interface Engineer candidate.

“25 racehorses, no stopwatch. 5 tracks. Figure out the top three fastest horses in the fewest number of races.” – Software Engineering Summer Intern candidate.

“What is the process you would go about in spotting a fake profile?” – User Operations Analyst candidate.

“You’re about to get on a plane to Seattle. You want to know if you should bring an umbrella. You call 3 random friends of yours who live there and ask each independently if it’s raining. Each of your friends has a 2/3 chance of telling you the truth and a 1/3 chance of messing with you by lying. All 3 friends tell you that ‘Yes’ it is raining. What is the probability that it’s actually raining in Seattle?” – Data Scientist candidate.

Would you attempt any of these questions for a $25,000 interns salary?

This is to inform our readers that application is open for Mawista Scholarship for Students Studying Abroad with a Child, 2016. Africans and those from Developing Countries are welcome to apply.

Applications are invited for Mawista Scholarship from students studying abroad with a child. The focus is there on applicant’s history/career, their personality and personal background but not on the grade point average or the duration of the study. International students with a child who are going to manage their studies in Germany also have the possibility to apply for the scholarship. Jury selects five finalists which are selected through public vote. The winner of the scholarship will receive a monthly scholarship of 500 Euro during a 12-month period. The application deadline is 15 January 2016.

Study Subject(s): Scholarship is awarded in all subjects.
Course Level: Scholarship is available to undergraduate students to complete their studies abroad.
Scholarship Provider: Mawista
Scholarship can be taken at: Germany (international students) and Abroad (German students)

Eligibility:
-Mawista is looking for students who won’t give up and who would like to finish their study even with double stress (study and child) because this is very important to us. If applicants think, that they are the one, they can send application now!
-International students with a child who are going to manage their studies here in Germany also have the possibility to apply for the scholarship.

Scholarship Open for International Students: Students from all over the world can apply for this Mawista scholarship.

Scholarship Description: Variety enriches the education infrastructure this is also the motto for the new scholarship of MAWISTA. That’s why we would like to offer the scholarship to a person studying abroad with a child. One semester, or even the complete study abroad, is going to be more and more popular and gives many students the opportunity to let their dreams of living abroad come true and also to get some advantages for their future career. But the study, a foreign country and a child is a real challenge; it doesn’t matter if you are in a partnership or if you are a single parent. Studying with a child means to have more additional stress. It is a big challenge and requires a lot of organizational skills. Every student has to organize his/her studies.

The student has to find a suitable flat, to pass the exams and to find a position for the practical semester. Further he has to handle the foreign language. For students with a child there is still one question left – who is going to take care of my child? This is certainly the most important question which has to be answered before going to study abroad. That means, you have to inform yourself where you can find a childcare in the place you are going to stay and how much it will cost.

For MAWISTA it is very important to promote especially young people with a child who decided to study abroad. The focus is on your history/career, your personality and your personal background but not on the grade point average or the duration of the study. Tell us why you should be the one who should be promoted and how you are going to manage your daily life.

Number of award(s): Jury selects five finalists. A winner of the five selected finalists will be chosen through public vote.

Duration of award(s): Scholarship is offered for a period of one year.

What does it cover? The winner of the scholarship will receive a monthly scholarship of 500 Euro during a 12-month period. That way, you will have more time to take care of your child.

Selection Criteria: The focus is on history/career, personality and personal background but not on the grade point average or the duration of the study.

Notification: A winner of the five selected finalists will be chosen through public vote starting from 01.02.2016 until 15.02.2016.

How to Apply: Please send your application form along with your curriculum vitae as pdf-file to the following e-mail address: info-at-mawista.com. Application Form.
