- Former recruiter at Meta earned $190,000 for doing nothing for six months.
- Maddie’s time at Meta came to an end after her TikTok video went viral and she got fired.
- Meta is laying off over 10,000 employees and not filling 5,000 open positions as part of its restructuring and efficiency plans for the year.
That’s right, you heard it correctly — nothing!
Maddie claims that during her six-month tenure with the company in 2021, her team wasn’t taking on any new employees for a year.
“We weren’t expected to hire anybody for the first six months, even the first year,” she explained. “That really blew my mind. Like ‘perfect, I’m just going to ride this out for a year, obviously I didn’t make that.’”
Instead, she spent her days “learning” from the company’s comprehensive onboarding and training process, which apparently was considered the best
If you thought that was crazy, wait until you hear about the meetings.
“But the most that we did, this is the crazy part, is we had so many team meetings,” the TikToker recalled the strategic overkill at Meta.
But alas, Maddie’s time at Meta came to an end when her viral TikTok video about the company’s benefits package received positive feedback from her co-workers. Unfortunately, Meta’s higher-ups weren’t too thrilled with the content on Maddie’s account, and she ended up getting fired for posting about how “challenging” her job could be. Maddie tried to assure Meta that she stopped talking about the company specifically, but apparently, they didn’t believe her and went through 20 of her TikTok videos, questioning their appropriateness.
It’s no wonder Maddie decided to jump ship and quit a day before she was fired. Her videos have since accumulated over 210,400 views on TikTok, with some users in the comments section roasting her time at Meta. But she’s not alone in her unproductive experience. Other people have commented, expressing how they could relate to Maddie’s work experience, with one person stating that they had the same experience for four months and it was the easiest paycheck ever.
