Went onsite last week with Airbnb, thought all rounds went pretty well, somehow got rejected email today.

Try to contact recruiter to get some feedback, but never got response, is this normal from Airbnb?

    I don't know of any company that provides detailed interview feedback. This is best for the candidate and for the company both.

    Providing feedback is an absolute no-win for the company. Candidates will tend to go comparison-shopping based on the feedback that was provided. Worse yet, a determined candidate could twist the feedback in such a way as to sue the employer for discrimination.

    A candidate facing a rejection isn't in an objective state of mind when receiving the feedback. Your first instinct is to push back and/or defend yourself. You got rejected; the best step forward is to take it on the chin, analyze for yourself and move on.

    The most you can expect to hear from a recruiter is an encouragement to reapply in 6 or 12 months.

      Make sense. I kind of want to know which part went south so that I could work on it.

      Yes agree, but strangely enough my Facebook recruiter gave me detailed feedback for my interview that happened 11 months ago recently since I’m going to try again... Not sure if this is a common experience, just sharing what happened to me.

      My Uber recruiter is a champ and gave me feedback. Went through each interview and gave me detailed feedback on their feedback points what they liked or didn't show enough in and how they scored me.

    I had a phone interview last year. They haven’t told me if they would want to move forward yet. I guess it was a no.

      I had a similar response (or lack thereof). After 2 phone interviews no response.

    Most probably not. You're only relevant until you interview. In case the recruiter does answer your email, he'll reply with "Our policy is not to provide feedback" unless you've a personal connection with the recruiter.
