Google Hiring Committee

New Lxsa
Sep 11, 2018 30 Comments

I got mixed feedback from my Google interview. My recruiter is trying to find a team match before presenting my package to the hiring committee but so far managers are interested to talk after passing HC. I already provided 5/6 internal referrals and recruiter told me the referrals are strong. Given my situation any chance of passing hiring committee without SOS from a manager?

    Unlikely. I’ve been on the other side of this, you want a manager to champion your case.

    I got mixed reviews. But key is I got one strong hire. That pushed me through

      I got 3 leaning no. They were bad interview questions tho - I can say this w my google interviewer hat on. Hc likely judged the same and weighted other interviews higher

      Oh I was told the rating is 1-4, so does 2 mean leaning no?

      Also did it affect the leveling a lot?

      Yes 2 is learning no. Leveling - yes but it did not affect comp (in at l+1 comp)

    Sometime back I was in a similar situation but I managed to successfully match with a manager to help push it through. Even with that, I was denied at HC

    What's your YOE? I dont think referrals can have as big of an impact. Folks from Google plz comment.

      They don’t count as much. People rarely write bad referrals. They can get you through the initial gate, and maybe help skip a phone screen.

    If you have 5-6 internal referrals, why not ask your referrals to share your resume with their managers?

    I’m in the same boat. Strong from everyone. The hiring manager said “not a good fit for the team at this time”. Recruiter asked me to send over job postings at google that I liked the sound of. (I’m a UX/ Design Program manager 10YOE).

    I’m in the same boat, I haven’t talked to managers yet. Should I glue onto a manager and hope they carry me through HC?
