    What is the kindest thing a boss has ever said about you?

      How to Answer

      This question is another way for the interviewers to ask about your greatest strengths. The basis of the inquiry is to find out the best qualities your leaders see in you and how those qualities will be a fit for Facebook. The way you respond to this question will also show the interviewers how well you accept compliments and identify your professional strengths.

      Think back to a memorable compliment or piece of positive feedback said to you in a past performance review or an informal setting. Sharing this positive feedback may feel like bragging, but you must give the interviewers perspective into the most valuable qualities you will bring to Facebook.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I'll never forget my boss telling me that I have the sharpest learning curve he has seen in the business. I know I am quick to pick up new tasks and learn new programs; however, his comment made me feel smarter than average, and it felt great to hear it. One of Facebook's core values is 'Move Fast.' I appreciate that Facebook believes it's better to move fast and make mistakes than move slowly and miss opportunities. With my sharp learning curve, I am confident that I will positively impact Facebook. I will learn my new role faster than expected and will be an active, contributing member to the team very quickly."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Recently, my boss told me that my compassion for my teammates and my willingness to help others was a quality he wished everyone had. I believe that kindness and empathy are the greatest qualities to have, so I was happy to hear that my efforts make a difference in team morale. I have researched Facebook's core values and appreciate that the company emphasizes building social value. Facebook is working hard to bring the world closer together, which is a mission that I am ready to enthusiastically contribute. Facebook's focus on people and on creating real value for the world is a mission that fits my most notable characteristics."

      "My colleague had told me that - when the team was trying to hire new people - my boss kept on asking if the candidates are 'like me' who is diligent, extremely detailed oriented, but also able to see the high-level context. I thought it was a kind thing for her to say as it was a direct acknowledgment of my hard work and what I was bringing to the team at the time."

      "You are a future CEO. You have it all (referring to my skills & abilities)."

      Stephanie's Answer

      Wow! That's a big compliment. To strengthen your response, I'd suggest closing it out with a sentence or two that expresses why this compliment was important to you.

      "I'm fortunate that my current boss has said a lot of kind things to me, but two comments that really stand out are "Future CEO" and "You have it all" (referring to my skills and abilities.) I really appreciated the validation and see value in having a boss who sees so much potential in me."
