    Training Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Mumbai) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was straightforward. Two rounds of telephonic screening followed by 4 onsite interviews. I enjoyed the interviews and the recruiters were very responsive all the way along. Because it was a non-technical role, I was asked numerous situation based questions as well as case studies to resolve.

    After the interviews, the recruiter told me that she'd get back to me with feedback in a week's time from then, but she did not. This led me to follow up with her via emails and phone calls but to no avail. As I was getting increasingly frustrated at this lack of response, I mailed a senior recruiter and he told me that he had emailed me after my initial screening rounds that I wasn't shortlisted. It was after I told him that my onsite interviews had happened the previous week, he apologised and told me that the position was being moved to a different country and hence, irrespective of the feedback, the company would not be moving forward with my candidature. He also told me that the other recruiter would get in touch with me with the feedback.

    All of this was very confusing to me and I decided to email the other recruiter one last time seeking feedback and that I had heard from the senior that the company wouldn't be moving forward with my candidature. I got a response within a few minutes that she would like to set up a call with me to chat.

    We ended up chatting but all that was said was that the position was no more open and they moved it to a different location. I insisted on giving me feedback but she kept telling me that she wasn't allowed to, while every article I've read about Facebook interviews states that they give feedback to the candidates irrespective of the outcome

    Apparently, my candidature was discussed but because the position had to be closed, they wouldn't reveal the feedback. I never expected this from a tech giant like Facebook. The whole process took over a month, where spent days researching and nights thinking about my responses to the interview questions and then this happened. This is the most overwhelming interview experience I've ever had
