Spoke to a recruiter who mentioned they're only hiring people with 6-7 years experience or more.

Is there a hiring freeze going on?

    No hiring freeze. Likely due to majority of junior positions having been filled via interns

      Did the referral say you were amongst the best they had seen?

      Is this after applying or after they reached out to you?

      They reached out a few months back, I got back in touch. He asked me to select dates for a phone screen, I confirmed the date and he calls back saying they are not hiring ppl with <5 years. Told he'll stay in touch and get back once they start hiring again

    This happens periodically every few months at Facebook. It's really annoying especially since they don't always communicate this at the start of your process but after you've wasted a bunch of time with their process. This happened to me for two years in a row.
