    What is debrief - is it between interviewers and recruiter/HR?

      It's generalist, you pick team after bootcamp - but usually there's a "hiring manager" in a debrief, as in, a director level person who is involved with recruiting for their pillar.

      Ah so If I have database experience, can I request to be interviewed by a Storage team?

      > can I request to be interviewed by a Storage team?

      If you are a well known expert in the area, and Facebook wants you.

    • During the candidate's introduction, does the background hold a bias? Like being from a specific company or a team or spending certain time at a company?

      Background is taken into consideration

    General timeline:

    I interview somebody mid-day
    I enter feedback by EOD
    Some straggler on the loop enters the next day
    Debrief 2-4 days later

    So if you haven't heard back within 4-5 work days, that's not a signal one way or another.

      Thank you for promptly entering feedback. You're certainly not the norm. Ha.

      What If you haven't heard back after 8 business days and no reply from the recruiter after sending an email? Is this a rejection?

    I found out the same day. I flew in for the onsite interviews and my recruiter called that afternoon to let me know I got the job and they were working on a formal offer

      That's super unique tho. Sometimes, if every interviewer on the loop is a solid hire, we email debrief, but a ton of candidates go to in person debrief and that takes time.

      I flew back to the east coast and found out shortly after I landed, technically the next day I guess.

    I'm recently applied for a couple positions at Facebook with 2 referrals and a good resume. Took almost 3 weeks for recruiter to reach out and by then they were bringing candidates onsite. The phone screen went well and recruiter said they'd recommend a convo with the hiring managers. Followed up with recruiter twice and no response. I'm very disappointed with my Facebook experience so far. I was really excited about the opportunity but if this is how FB recruiting operates then It makes me question if the culture is as great as people say. As a hiring manager, I would be upset to know that my recruiter was being so flaky and unprofessional.

      Are you working at Audodesk as per your profile OR you moved to Facebook now?

      Reach out to your referrals? Fwiw recruiters do take their candidate experience very seriously. Tell your referrals to contact your recruiter and see what's up.

    Just tell them you're waiting for some other offer. They'd speed up.

    I share your feelings shneucj3 and I had similar experiences. I guess the Facebook employees got rich and sophisticated with raising FB stock price now.
    Sad to see the transition in to poor culture/qualities.

    Those who got offers, did you find you had to nail every coding question? I've heard if you can't complete two optimally and correctly in each coding session you're not even in the discussion

    • Facebook PUmF07
      Depends on the question. Some are not meant to be done optimally in just 45 mins.

    I got 2 weeks. There was a huge number of candidates, so they keep postponing. Talk to your recruiter if you are worried.
