Recently interviewed for the Data Scientist role. I told the recruiter that I’d need the decision by the end of last week since I am considering other offers. Still haven’t heard back despite dropping him an email (been 3 days).

Does this mean this is a reject? How many days (after the interview) does it take for fb to typically communicate of an offer and reject?

    I don’t think that’s true... FB is not going through a lot of shit, but they are hiring like crazy and interviewers are overwhelmed with the volume of interviews. Hence the delay with feedback. I would definitely ping the recruiter and ask him or her to at least give you an idea of how much time they think it will take to get back to you.

      I did. Are the recruiters known to not reply at all?

    Just ping the recruiter. Be open and honest with your needs.

    If they’re waiting on interview feedback, they will crack the whip a bit.

      Yeah I did. But no reply. Is it common that interview feedback gets delayed by a week?

    Most likely. If you have other offers, you should move on them. FB is going through a lot of shit lately
