Facebook Interview Questions & Answers
How do you like to be recognized for your accomplishments?
How to Answer
Facebook's approach to a happy team begins with getting to know each person's greatest motivators. On the Facebook careers site, the company states, 'You can bring your values to do work that matters--not just to you, but to the world.'
The interviewers want to know what motivates you to be an active achiever. We all want recognition for our accomplishments in some way. Perhaps you enjoy surprise gifts, financial perks, kind words, added responsibilities, or title promotions. Share with the interviewers how you prefer to receive recognition for your hard work.
"In my current role, the Marketing Director will often share the results of customer satisfaction surveys in our team meetings. If a customer mentions my name in one of the reviews, I cannot help but grin from ear to ear. I appreciate the acknowledgment and knowing that my work has made a positive impact on someone else. Facebook's mission to connect the world and make a difference in people's lives resonates with me very much, and I look forward to earning even more accomplishments in this role."
"The success of my team is a direct reflection of my success. Recently, the group that I lead exceeded Q3 targets. We were collectively rewarded with a bonus. In addition to the bonus, I acknowledged each team member's individual contribution, thanking them for their hard work. I prefer that my teammates receive public accolades for a job well done. If hired for this leadership role with Facebook, I will eagerly encourage my team to remain incredibly passionate about what they are building. Seeing my team succeed is all the recognition I need."

"I like to create a culture where team members acknowledge the support from one another, giving credit to others' contributions as necessary. I'd also feel happy if the accomplishments are acknowledged in performance reviews and a reward system that the company has put in place."Stephanie's Answer
You're able to clearly articulate how to contribute to a team where everyone is supported and recognized, which is fantastic. To strengthen your response, I suggest adding in brief additional details about the "reward system." Do you want a bonus? Flexible working hours? Free office lunch? This question is usually asked so that interviewers can gauge whether your preferences align with the company culture and needs, so do your research.Was this answer helpful?
