Need details about FB boot camp. Is it for each individual new hire, or they combine multiple new hires together?

I got a joining date, which I want to change but HR said it's tied to my boot camp so can't be changed. And what happens in Boot camp ? I will be joining as E5

    Multiple hires start together. They do this so that they can put everyone though the orientation/bootcamp. Usually there is bootcamp start date every two weeks. The engineering bootcamp is about 5 weeks long. Your recruiter should be able to provide this information. This is not a secret.

      Is it 5 weeks or 8 weeks?

      You should really just ping your recruiter. It's 6+ weeks. The number of weeks is flexible because it's unknown how long team matching will take for you during bootcamp.

    It’s probably because they already bought your tickets and everything, and you haven’t given them a good enough reason to run around and change things for you. Have you already resigned from Oracle, if that was your previous employer?

      Facebook gives joining dates 60 days later? That’s quite a bit of vacation time in between jobs. Is this normal?

      Max up to three months from sign date, so yeah

      Earlier? I thought you wanted to start later. I meant the tickets/hotel to the boot camp, but I forgot you’re probably in the Bay Area/Silicon Valley already.

      They have to get you gear and do a bunch of paperwork, so starting earlier is probably more work and rushing than starting later.

    How is bootcamp different for those already allocated to a team before bootcamp?

      Shorter, probably. There’s a part that’s common, something like 3 weeks.
