got an offer for FB E3. Everything was going great until i was asked to complete onboarding for facebook. It turns out the school email I used to apply with has a disabled FB acc associated with it.

I made a FB with my school email a long time ago for school events and just never used it. It has no friends tied to it, no messages/posts, etc. FB’s algos decided to disable it. Now i cant complete my onboarding docs.

Recruiter tried a few things, but we have to go thru my school email to initially set up and its disabled even though i sent in my passport, Drivers license, etc to prove that I am the real owner.

Recruiter said she would escalate to see what needs to be done. She said dont worry about it, that im good. But what if they think its too much trouble and just rescind?

I turned down other opportunities to accept, so if they do then not only would i lose FB, id lose 5-10 other companies :/.

Its not like i broke a policy or anything, I just never used the account and surprisingly found it locked/disabled when i tried to access it.

    There's no chance in hell FB will rescind offer over this. Just relax and enjoy your days before you get PIPed at Facebook.

    No one wants to sell their soul at FB since Cambridge Analytica. Their offer acceptance rate is down 50% and they’re desperate to get anyone in the door. They’ll figure out a way to onboard you.

      @Workday : It is not about F and G. If he went on ranting about Workday everyday I would have said the same. That Apple guy needs help because he is not even making sense and knows nothing.

      @solala I’ve never applied or interviewed at FB, but I DO trash any resumes from applicants that work there when they apply to my team.

      If you’re worried I’m making up statistics about offer acceptance, I’m happy to cite sources.

      @nosuch regardless of whether the link you posted above is correct or not, Facebook continually still meets their hiring goals, even to the point of quickly limiting referrals for certain roles after they quickly fill up.

      those stats are pretty far off (over 100%) from what they actually are - journalist basically listened to anon sources that didn't have access to the data. FB has already denied the BS claims. As others have said, they have no issues filling headcount or interns accepting offers at sky high rates. Hence why barely any or no E3 or E4 positions available.

      @nosuch, tons of applers come to FB, but not the reverse for good reason. FB people have better options than apple.

      Canbridge Analytica thing, and how Facebook only helps prosecuting attorneys and not the defense in cases

    We’re supposed to trust Facebook with Libra, but they can’t even get this dude’s high school account unlocked?

    How do you get a job at Facebook with a disabled account and no friends? They used to require at least 1K friends as a minimum prerequisite.

    They can't hire like they used to, no way they won't reject you over this. You're fine, don't eat too much free food when you get there.

    Just tell your hiring manager "you're so sorry this happened" and you "need to do a better job". He'll think you're leadership material
