Hey everyone,

I have amazon offer at hand and fb onsite is yet to be scheduled may be next week or so.

My situation is, I have accepted amazon offer but I want to go for FB interview, I dont have much time as the processing of new offer ( background check, relocation , immigration etc) is catching speed now. None of it is started though. How long and how can I delay the process little but to gain some time for FB and it’s result.

Hoping for onsite by July 19th but recruiting coordinator has not even reached out to me for onsite date yet.

    Why did you accept offer if you have strong intent to do onsite with Facebook

    Had the same scenario recently.
    Looked up FB possible max offer and countered AWS Offer in mean time. It became where with CoL it would make no sense to take a FB Offer over AWS, accepted AWS and withdrew from FB. Would recommend doing similar compare salaries possible and CoL/location. Also remember, you don’t have an offer from FB just a 1/10 shot.

      Cool.. but Still 1/10. Remember that.
      If you 100% would rather FB, and think you’ll for sure get it and are willing to risk it, pull out of Amazon. If you start even 1 day, you’re pretty frowned upon by amazon for any future

      Microsoft - do you really believe that regardless of ability, intelligence, preparation, and experience, interviews are just a 1/10 roll of the (10-sided) die?

      Have friends who are senior and lead recruiters. They told me the actual ratio is about 10% get offers after on-site. So no, info based.

      I have absolutely no doubt that the 10% number is true...on average. But that's not what I'm talking about. Look at it this way - let's say 10% of people applying for the draft in the NBA actually get picked by a team. Do you really think that LeBron James had only a 10% chance of being drafted when he submitted himself for the draft? His odds of being drafted were much closer to 100%.

    Honestly, how about rejecting amazon offer after 20 days of acceptance?

      Make sure that you are not blacklisted by Amazon for rejecting the offer after accepting it. Everything else can be retried after some time.

    if premium processing is cancelled for another 6 months then you will regret.
