I recently did the Facebook onsite interviews and my recruiter got back saying she needed references and that reviews with respect to my interviews were positive. What should I expect from the final review and reference check ? Any experiences ? Turn around time ?

    If they’re asking for references after an interview, usually an offer will follow soon. Hope you have good ones.

    Could be a reject, could ask for another interview. Good chance of getting an offer though. Good luck.

      Yea I thought so! The rejection could be based on my reference check ?

      If one of your references is bad then definitely. Otherwise the hiring committee might still reject but it should be unlikely.

      True. I get your point with regard to references raising a red signal. Hiring committee might still reject based on interview performance or Any idea why ?

  • Do references have to be from senior people or can I give references from people with same no of experience as mine?
