Airbnb chances

I had my Airbnb on-site today, and it went well except one interview. The interviewer was younger and frequently interrupted me when coding, which hurt my progress a lot. Sometimes I need 30 seconds or a minute to decide what to write. I only completed 60% of the question and indicated how I would finish with more time.

My other coding interviewer gave me time to think and I solved his different questions with test cases. I think the architecture and other interviews went very well. My phone interview also went very well and I skipped the second phone interview.

I told the recruiter at the end that the one interviewer’s style was different from what I was used to. Any chance of passing despite the bad interview?

      Unlikely. You probably didn’t pass core values, which happen if you ask question like “How does career advancement work here?”

      Thanks for guessing guys, specially your very specific guess. This is what your recruiter told me, btw - but hey, lets just speculate and make stuff up

      Recruiters will never tell you if you don’t pass core values. And judging by the tone of your response, I’d say I’m right.

      I definitely am. One rejection from an eng interview isn’t enough to sink a candidate unless the candidate was a jerk during the interview. But a single core values rejection is all it takes. You failed core values. And like I say, judging by your attitude here it sounds like the interviewer was spot on.

      I like how you keep proving me right and can’t even see that.

    I got rejected cuz I had to goto the bathroom and take a piss and couldn’t get back into the interview room (was waiting around for someone to swipe the door). Lost 10 minutes right there.

      Lesson learned. Bring empty water bottle next time.

    I got an offer at Airbnb after knowing for a fact I failed at least one coding interview. Crossing my fingers for you.

    By the way I’ve learned people are really bad at determining why they didn’t get an offer. When they think they know why, they are almost always wrong.

      Dude, Airbnb recruiters tell you why. They are good at providing feedback

      My Airbnb recruiter never even followed up with me after the on-site. That’s how I know I got rejected.

      Is there EVER a time that you are not lying to support your unbelievable elitism and winner's circle?

    Depends on if you are a female or not. Yes they mark that on your profile and hr has a quota to fill.

    I got a soft no on one of my coding rounds and got to do a follow-up one-hr phone screen, which I passed.
