I understood that candidates at Facebook receive a full feedback from Facebook whether they passed the onsite day or didn't is this true? and if so who gives this feedback?

    Hard to imagine a company like FB to be so transparent.

    No. This is incorrect.

  • Just finished a phone screen with facebook, in which I didn’t pass. I was told they don’t share feedback but when I asked my recruiter they shared a tiny amount of pretty generic feedback with me (solution had a bug / not fast enough / i was really nice and easy to work with).

    I didn’t leetcode enough

    • I know the bug was literally changing a “const” to a “let”. I could have caught that if interviewer had let me run the code 🤦‍♂️

      Similar experience. I had to ask but to my recruiter's credit they jumped on a call with me and we played this game where we both vaguely navigated the contents of the feedback.

      Something else much worse must have happened. Const vs let is not the root cause of rejection.

    • I wrote real tests for my algorithm after the call: passed 0 tests, until I changed const to let, then it passed every test that we had talked about.

      Other than that I got 2-3 small hints...

      It was probably a leetcode medium.

    • But yeah the root cause was probably I obviously didn’t grind enough leetcodes in advance

    I asked and basically the recruiter said what did you think of it , I shared my thoughts and she said yes basically . So they can indirectly say things but won’t say it upfront

      They don't want to divulge any details in case they accidentally say something that could turn into a legal issue

    The recruiter will say whether you did ok or not on a given section, but won't give exact feedback.

    No they ghosted me even though I was at the last round interview. I guess the feeling was mutual.
