Heard the rumor that google is freezing the hiring for ppl with less than 5 yoe in Mountain view Bay Area. Is it true? I passed the HC last week but haven’t got a team match yet so I’m a bit worried.

Yoe 1.5
Tc: 120k

Edited:
Got a match today. TC got a major version bump.

    Wouldn’t be surprised. We have one too many L3s .

    I bet it is not closed for "diversity" candidate.

      Maybe you aren't the right kind of biracial.

      :( I'm black and white, just don't think race helps much when you're biracial

      I see. You aren't as black as Obama but looks more like white. That's why it didn't work.

    I have my second HC tomorrow (first HC they decided they wanted me to do 2 additional interviews).

    I wonder if this will affect HC decision, ie if the bar is higher.

    I am fine with waiting 2 months to find a team.

      I think it does affect the HC decision, that's what my recruiter said at least

      From what I know, HC can also recommend to 'Hold until Headcount becomes available'. Are the 2 additional interviews for L4 or just cos they missed something in the prior rounds?

      It’s L3. From what my recruiter told me they just thought I was borderline and needed two more interviews to make a decision.

      The 2 extra interviews were not over untested concepts. An array question and a trie question, and I had already done arrays and graphs.

      OP
      How do you know if your hr is actively looking a team for you or you have been put into a lower priority queue...

      Recruiter just keeps pinging me that he's looking for a team every few days, no clue what priority tho

    There are infact quite a few open positions from what I have been told by people working there. If you know anyone at Google, I would suggest pinging them to pass your resume to the HM
