I interviewed with one of the FANG. I did pretty great in the interviews. The feedback from recruiter was that I’d be leveled up and to wait a couple of days for the formal offer. Few days later the recruiter tells me that the position for which I had originally interviewed was no longer available due to budget reasons.
Instead, I received an offer for a totally different team to which I’m not interedted at all. This looks like a bait and switch scheme for a position for which there are not enough interest from candidates. If the job opening was approved, I assume the budget was initially set before starting the interview process.
This has been a very bitter experience so far.
Offer TC: $350k
- FANG are all big, can you work with the recruiter or anyone you know in the company to find another team you will be interested in?
- I could but why bother. I have 2 offers from other FANGs, I’d prefer going to any of those. It’s stressful enough to prep for interviews and going through a few rounds of interviews. I don’t want to deal with added stress of looking for another team and doing any more interviews or chats with HMs.Dec 5, 20181
- Apple iPhone XsWhat is the point of the post? You already have competing offers with same TC. So take those and move on. Not sure what you are expecting here
- Microsoft ImAwesomeHow much TC did they offer? Maybe if it’s a substantial bump it’s worth it?
