    Nope. Shadow interviewers don't submit feedback. They are just there to observe and get experience in conducting interviews.

    You do a couple of rounds where you are the passive shadower and a couple where you take lead and a more seasoned interviewer shadows. After that, the training wheels are off and you interview solo.

      What you wrote is correct, but it might be misleading to the OP. While the shadower does not submit feedback, the interviewer does. So from the interviewee’s POV, there is no difference.

      I thought it would be obvious that the interviewer submits feedback. But yeah, that's correct.

      OP
      Is the shadowed round weighted equally as other normal rounds?

      Yes, unless your interviewer is the trainee and undergoing a reverse shadow. If the feedback for them is that they didn’t do a good job, that’ll get factored in.

      Had onsite myself, did great in some rounds, alright in others, but poorly in the shadowed round, thus wondering

      If this was a reverse shadow where the trainee was asking the questions, the interview is not considered, since the main interviewer is not yet calibrated
