    Correction, your recruiter's org is out of headcount. Another 400+ Nooglers this week alone. Definitely not a company wide freeze.

    I think you are missing a critical component, those companies don’t necessarily have full company wide hiring freeze, but rather certain orgs and teams. It’s likely they just didn’t have positions open in the areas you were be considered for.

    • Google OnTheRise
      I heard from other blinders Google is still hiring new grads/ return interns so might be good to specify
      Aug 23
    • Google / Ops Huhf13
      Google is still hiring. It's team, level, location specific.

      Isn't Apple hiring team specific? How would they have a hiring freeze?
      Aug 23
    • Apple j35a93

    I am fucking shocked. Did you just pass HC days ago? Why the fuck are G still interviewing new people when they already told candidates who passed HC in May there is no fucking headcount ...

      There is a freeze for L 3 in past months. I am 100% sure. But if you are in special diversity group. You could still have chance matching. It is not a 100% freeze but it is very widely across many locations and orgs.

    I have been told this as well from the google recruiter so some truth to this post. Recruiter told me that they have reorg happening right now and won’t know by September maybe October when the dust settles.

    • Ripple UoNS08
      I heard about the reorg as well, so it sounds plausible.

    Does hiring freeze mean no interview, or interview but pending results?
