Google HC rejecting Hire

I presume the recruiters submit only the good profiles to the HC. I am curious what are the chances for rejection if a profile happens to reach the HC after onsite interview.

      I got accepted the first time but turned it down. The second time I interviewed for an L7 role and got rejected by HC.

      I suppose. The second time I had a terrible interview experience where one of the interviewers could not clearly articulate the questions and got visibly frustrated when I asked her to clarify because she had a thick accent and also couldn’t ask her questions in a concise manner. L7 was also probably a stretch since I’m pretty young

    No point in going to HC if a candidate does really bad. In fact, in old days we (at google) used to cut the interview loop short if the first few went really bad.

    I've been on site three times over 10 years. Once I got a thanks but no thanks quickly (SWE role, was still pretty junior back them) so pretty sure it didn't make it beyond the initial feedback phase, 2nd time (also SWE) a couple years after that I got a thanks but no thanks after a couple weeks but no indication of whether it went to HC or not.

    Most recent tims was an SRE loop and the recruiter was a lot more transparent. Got to HC after my first round of interviews and got sent to a second panel for more signal in a couple of areas, no offer when it went back to HC a second time.

    Are you asking what percentage of onsite interview candidates get an offer after being submitted to the Hiring Committee?

    Is there a way for the Interview panel to reject a candidate without submission to the hiring committee? (this shouldn’t happen if pre-screening is done correctly)

      As I understand it, if you actually bomb a question or some of the feedbacknis outright negative you won't make it to the hiring committee in the first place. Pretty sure on some earlier round of onsites a few years ago I BTDT because they got back to me with won't br moving forward pretty quickly

    Not true. HC is just a meeting. You can be rejected easily.
