I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Facebook (United States)

Interview

Had a referral. Started with a phone call with 1 easy, 2 medium LC problems. Heard back 2 days later for virtual onsite. 2 rounds technical, 1 round behavioral. First interviewer was extremely incompetent and couldn't understand why I was using a queue for a BFS. Not sure what he wanted. I wrote out the pseudocode and then code and he still couldn't understand what I was saying. 2 medium. Next round's engineer was fine. Also 2 medium. Last round was behavioral with manager, with 1 medium. Heard back a week later that I didn't get an offer but I'm pretty sure they weren't hiring new grads anymore anyways.
