4 rounds into FAANG interviews, next interview is technical and I was told a junior data scientist would be shadowing my interviewer. Does this mean anything? Do they want the jr to witness a train wreck?

This sounds like Facebook hah same here

Sounds like FB and as SM1 mentioned we do this as part of training people on how to conduct interviews

Nope no reflection on the interviewee at all. Re the language just spell out your assumptions, e.g. if you don’t know the specific nuances of a function at least explain what you are assuming. The point is to see your thought process not test your syntax. FB is built on PHP (well our flavor called hack). Most people coming in don’t know it which is why we have boot camp for people who will be using it

Damn at least 5 rounds to interview??

Usually with FAANG you can specify your preferred coding language and they will accommodate.
