I got rejected after a follow up behavioral round at fb for e5 role. Even after passing so many technical rounds why does fb reject people solely on one behavioral round? Is behavioral aspect more important than technical skills at fb?

    Cohesion in a team is far more important than raw technical talent. You should be happy that a company isn’t willing to hire you just to shove you into a situation where you won’t meld with any coworkers.

    It’s possible that round strongly suggested E4 and they want to offer you at least E5 given your yoe

      Recruiter specifically told me that it should be either e5 or no offer.

      Yep, so your no offer probably means that the “career & coding” round suggested E4. May not be any problem with culture fit or your behavior

      Coding rounds are pass or fail. It does not define level. Design and background rounds are more important with that respect.

      The Background round is called “career and coding”.

    Interviewers also ask themselves if they want to work with each candidate. If the answer is no then no amount of technical will save you. Follow up behavioral is already because someone thought you were a jerk and they wanted to double check. Rejection after that means they confirmed that observation.

    Can you share what was asked during behavioral? I thought it was more like “Can we work with this guy?”

      No, they asked questions about my career progression. In the first behavioral interview already checked for culture fit and I passed that.

    IDK about FB, but at Amazon your behavior is far more scrutinized than your technical.

      Yes, it's obvious from their interview process. Technical questions are quite easy in an Amazon interview.

    Some people are hard to work with. Maybe the interviewer picked a wrong signal about you.
