How many days or months after you join does Facebook start green card processing? Is there any stipulations on performance, tenure or manager approval? Does it vary by role like Software Engineer, Data Engineer, Network Engineer, Operations Engineer or Production Engineer?

Is there any self service tool or does yours manager have to initiate the process?

    Software engineer here, started the process 4 months after joining, even while I was still working on a remote office. They are super supportive, as long as you make it through bootcamp and have decent performance for a few months

      It's very rare but you can indeed flunk bootcamp.

      You can flunk bootcamp with the same probability that you can get fired in the first few months of any new job. Turns out some people can make it through interviews while being completely useless or obnoxious at a real job. It's very rare but it happens.

      What do they teach you at the FB bootcamp?

      You get exposure to the entire stack, primarily by working on tasks on different areas. There're also classes that teach about various aspects of coding at Facebook - pushing code, various tech stacks, aspects of the culture, etc. It's a fantastic program.

      Best part: You get paid to learn things.

      Damn, sounds like a dream!

      I'm seeing materials on interviewing to get in — seems intense and crazy difficult.

    It's not a big deal at facebook. You can start the process day 1 of joining a team. The company goes out of its way to help your life go well so you can focus on work.
