Facebook Onsite Evaluation

I recently interviewed with FB and the recruiter has been extremely helpful and open in terms of proactively reaching out and keeping me in the loop as feedback started to roll in. So overall regardless of results I had a positive experience.

I believe I did really well for phone screen; for onsite rounds according to what the recruiter has shared so far, I did well on one of them, did so-so on one, and did not so well on one. There are still waiting on two remaining feedback.

Two questions:

What does ‘so-so’ mean in this case? For example is it scored 1,2,3,4, and ‘so-so’ is associated with something like 2 or 3?

Given that there is already one “not so well”, is it most likely no offer? I’ve unexpectedly messed up on one or two really simple questions in one round unfortunately... but felt that I did pretty well on all others.

    The recruiter at facebook reached to me after onsite last friday (3days ago) that he wants to share interview feedback with me. What does that mean? I think I did well in two interviews. Do they reject candidates on email ? Or they call and reject ?

      To be nice I guess, else people would argue they didn’t have the courtesy to call and said no.

      Are u at Apple or facebook? I am just anxious now and its so bad on recruiters part to make me wait for one more night and leave me hanging just to give a reject. I am a big boy and i can handle rejections. He can say no for now and be like hey lets talk about feedback

      How did it go? Curious to knows your results. At least you heard back soon, only one week after your onsite... Now it has been 2 weeks! since my onsite and the recruiter still hasn’t given me a final answer... lol

    It’s unusual that the recruiter has shared this feedback. Usually at this point your interviewers will calibrate and reach a decision; it can go either way regardless of any individual rating. If someone really wants to go to bat for you, it may work in your favor.

      hmm ok. Yeah that’s why I was almost a bit surprised (in a positive way for this case :)) about such openness. I mean she didn’t provide all these details first but just said in general I did well in some part but not so in some other, and I followed up by asking whether she could be more specific, and she just told me which rounds she was referring too.

    Most likely no offer if you didn’t do well

      Some really simple probability questions, drawing cards related. I was actually a hardcore Math major when I was in school so I felt super embarrassed to have messed up that round haha. Oh well, too nervous.
