I was reached out by Facebook recruiter for a production engineer role. I passed the prescreening test but when I discussed salary expectation with her... she was "shocked" like I said something out of the world
Current TC - 210K
FACEBOOK Ask min was 250k TC with 175k base
YOE 9 yrs
- Facebook ainchotProduction engineering is paid less than SWE..why not interview for a SW role?
- Facebook gtr4h15aRecruiters generally act shocked when they hear nearly any salary expectation. Effective scare/guilt tactic
- Which location?
She is probably just doing this as a negotiation tactic early in the process
- Since it was Linked In connect from a recruiter directly and not a position I applied...I am not sure.
She just made initial chit chat call and then 20-25 pre screening questions and said there are many roles where I could be a good fit and she will present it to all teams she handlssFeb 90
- I would rather suggest you to ask for E5. Which automatically means $175k+ base + 15% bonus + $400-800k equity + joining bonus. They can’t low ball you too much if E5.
Your current ask of total $250k can be easily fulfilled by an E4 offer of
$150k base + $300k rsu + 10% bonus + some joining bonus.
