Your round 1 doesn’t matter that much if you got through to round 2. Will be almost all based on round 2, unless there was something particularly noteworthy either way in round 1

However, if you feel you only barely passed round 1 make sure to do some more prep in between for final round goes more smoothly

It’s the aggregate of all the scores

I personally don’t look at 1st round scores. If they made it through it’s equal playing field. I do get the earlier round scores but they don’t inform my grade and they don’t influence offers unless it’s the closest of ties between two candidates for some reason

Facebook managers, any tips for the data science manager final interview loops? Just got intimation that I cleared the screening round from two weeks ago. Have a conversation with the recruiter next week about the next steps, but any pointers would be great. The screening round interviews were reasonably easy. Is the next round an order of magnitude more difficult? Are Data Science managers expected to code or just read code? I got conflicting answers from the interviewer and recruiter.

Hi 🐠, I have applied to roles at EY and PWC and have to complete the prerecorded interview. Just wondering if anyone can share insights into what kinds of questions will be asked? If they will be just personal get to know you questions and assess how you think/operate, or if they will be job specific situational questions? I don’t have much concern either way but obviously role specific questions I would want to prep and have notes for more than get to know you questions. Thanks!
