Google HC approval chances

I recently had an on-site with 5 rounds and according to my recruiter I did very good in two, ok in two and bad in one. She seems to think that "things are going in the right direction" and that I have a chance if I can match with a team, however I'm not convinced. Is she being overly optimistic or do I actually have a chance?

Edit: I passed HC, so it is possible. I guess my very good interviews were strong hires.

    If the very good two correspond to “Strong hire”. Your chances are really good.

      Yeah, this is true. 2 nos is a bad sign, but 1 with some strong yeses will often be approved provided everything else (leveling, etc) is in line.

    Every time I give no hire or leaning no it steamrolls any other ratings... So idk, could be down to luck

    Afaik, 3-4 of the 5 interviews is used to determine signal. I gave a candidate a No Hire rating. Yet they were hired. They had 2 strong hires and a LH / H.

    Which is funny. They were the first candidate I interviewed to get an offer.

      Google doesn’t give feedback. You just “think” you did. Also recruiters have no idea how to evaluate packets, it is much more than a score assigned.

      There’s 5 scores. Not too hard to evaluate. Sometimes hiring committees will decide a question was too easy and they’ll dismiss the interviewers rating.

    Unlikely. You need one +, some ok and 0 -.
