I had an onsite interview at Google last week. After suffering for post-interview anxiety finally, a recruiter reached out and said she has an update for me and wanted to set up a time for quick call😌

They call in either case. For me, the recruiter was enthusiastic in tone via email (thank you! Happy to help! have an update, let me know when you’re free!).....and then rejected me. Stung.

Thanks, everyone, for motivating me. I just heard that I am going back to onsite in January! I will be bypassing the phone screen and phone interview😀.

I can't seem to DM you for some reason, it takes me to the NG group.. do you mind trying to send me a message to see if it will allow you to start a conversation?

The quick call after on-site is standard. After you do onsite interviews they will call you to either reject or tell you you’re moving along in the process

@S1 just got terrible news, but I cannot understand their reasoning. “Interviewers saw great strengths, but most of the experience was theoretical. Wtf is that mean? They asked simple questions, and I pull every answer from my experience, and current work K am doing. Very disappointed 😔. I thought I nailed it, and even one interviewer told me I would be a great fit in the PGM role.

Id ignore C1. Your English seems fine, and even if it wasn’t 100% Google wouldn’t reject for that reason (pretty global company with employees from all over) unless it hampered you ability to do the job.

Sorry it didn’t work out, but I would add some more exp. and shoot your shot again. If you interviewed well and all that was missing was exp., there will be a record of it

Has anyone heard of Big 4 TAS layoffs?

Recently, i was "promoted" or, I should say, my title was changed to the next ring up the ladder. As a part of this, I went from reporting to Senior Management, to Junior Management. The Jr. Manager has good intentions, but, is not helpful. I've worked at the company longer, have accomplished more across multiple lines of business and have a much stronger internal network. Am I overreacting thinking this is a major slight that will ultimately slow down my growth within the company?
