Completely bombed Facebook phone screening interview

May 13 16 Comments

I recently did a phone interview, the position had a lot to do with my current work. Only had a month to leet and study.

Pretty comfortable with leet and cracking the code interview questions. Over the phone panicked and did very bad (questions very easy tho)

Recruiter told me I got a year cool down now. Could I have been blacklisted or something? Do you think that will go on my record forever?

      Oh boy, it was a nice 4 week run then haha.

      Sad they are this strict, I really don't think I'm this trash to deserve that :'/

      Dude, he's pulling your leg.

      You can interview countless times until you pass. There's people that interview over 10 times until they pass.

      Keep at it/improving and keep applying!

      Persistence and preparation will get you your win!

      Good luck!

      Nah bro, they may not advertise it but it sure seems like they have a black list. I applied 3 years ago and tried again recently, no love.

      Vimeo: I don't know about you but there's countless people who successfully get another interview(s) after the one year/6 month time out. Happens all the time!

      Change recruiters and get referrals. Always stay on top of that shit and you'll get yours.

    • I did it recently and the question was just a regular string/palindrome stuff. Very textbook.

    • Dude relax, that's the most difficult part actually. Being chill and focused was the biggest challenge IMO

    You are in a calling list, not in the blacklist.
