According to reports, recently, it was reported that the American social networking giant Meta canceled its offer before the new employee was hired.
It is reported that a Libyan employee accepted an offer from Meta and is about to go to London, England to accept a position that can change the trajectory of his life. However, Meta suddenly called him and all plans were forced to abort.
It was only three weeks before the candidate arrived at Meta, however, the company’s recruiter told him that the position he was applying for had been cancelled.
The practitioner said there was no sign that Meta would change its hiring decision, and it all came too suddenly. “I had a flight scheduled to go to work on Friday, but suddenly they called me on Monday.”
The practitioner explained that he applied for Meta’s Discovery Manufacturing Engineering Program, a 12-month training program that provides training in systems engineering and software engineering to non-specialized candidates, with some being Trainers will be offered full-time positions at Meta in the future.
According to reports, Meta cancelled a total of two candidates before they left for London. The pair did not want to be identified because they had previously signed a document with Meta that prohibited speaking “badly” about the company.
The removal of the two men is not an isolated incident. Earlier, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that as the company experienced a slowdown in advertising revenue growth, as a response, it would temporarily freeze social recruitment and reduce some budget expenditures.
A spokesperson for Meta also confirmed that the company had recently cancelled some intern positions.
Meta was reluctant to comment on how the hiring delay would affect the aforementioned Discovery Manufacturing Engineering program.
The above applicant’s home is in Libya. Since he has not officially resigned before, he does not need to look for a new job for the time being.
But for another Italian engineer who was fired, the situation was even worse. His life has been completely changed in order to get a job at Meta, he quit his job and rented his apartment, only to get a call from Meta.
The Italian even turned down offers from Amazon and Skyscanner in order to participate in Meta’s “Discover Manufacturing Engineering” program.
“When I got the job offer from Meta, I was ecstatic,” he said.
Seeing how Meta was handled so badly, the Italian said it was unlikely he would consider a chance to work at Meta in the future.
He said that he was looking forward to working at Meta because of the face, the good pay, and the ability to solve interesting engineering challenges, but now, he sees the lack of focus of Meta’s management, and the indifference to their own employees or future employees.
The above-mentioned Libyan engineer said that if Meta reopens social recruitment, he will still apply for the company’s position. “Until the call to cancel the position, I had a good impression of them, and I didn’t feel very uncomfortable.”
