Hey anyone here get their onsite cancelled due to headcount being reached at FB NYC? I could’ve interviewed but no offer until they have headcount again (possibly eoy) according to recruiter.

Anyone here experienced this at other companies or at facebook? Just curious, at the end of the day I think it was good/respectable they let me know before I spent a day interviewing at their office. Obviously still a bummer cause I took a lot of time to prep and took the day off work.

    Same here:( Recruiter told me no headcount so no onsite!

    Time to move on to other companies in your job search. Not a good sign.

    Yes. Was told this for product leadership positions a week or two ago.

      But what’s wrong with them hiring? Is it like some time of the year where it just stops?

      All I’m saying is they could be tightening the belt

      Why do they approach candidates if they have no headcount:((

      Probably because a decision was handed down after the recruiter initiated the headhunting process

  • I got an onsite at FB NYC next week. Was thinking about rescheduling. Now I fear my interview will also get cancelled if I postpone it lol. You know what level you were gonna interview for?

      I mean if your recruiter hasnt informed you otherwise I would still go ahead and do it. I just thought it wasnt worth it for me since I already have other offers and want to make moves ASAP. He told me headcount could open by november so a good onsite performance wouldve just had me on the backburner.
