So I interviewed in March at Google NYC and heard that there are NO head count at that time. l so I gave Bay area as other option.
Its been 3+ months now and its June. I am still hoping for headcount to be up at least at MTV OR NYC.
Have been asked to wait more.
Any clue if this is gonna work out?
PS: I have been told to team match BEFORE hiring committee review.
I am afraid if this wait will ever get over and if I would see the bright light of Google’s offices with a huge YES for me?!
I had an amazing interview. I recall one of my interviewer asking me that Google hopes I choose Google over other companies.
But now I am left with only wait, very long wait. And there’s no guarantee.
Its weird. I am clueless.
- Facebook / Eng mturtleWhat level were you offered? No one is getting T3 matches lately.
- Google fuchsiabroUhh dude you need to fuckin tell your recruiter to get their shit together for real.
- Had the same thing. Just turned Google down last week. Was waiting since first week of April. Recruiter told me September is most likely time of new headcount. Was L4 and I had past Hiring Committee. Ask recruiter to do HC to increase your team matching chances and you’ll have a year to team match. Also check out other NYC companies that are hiring.

- NYC > Bay Area, cheaper rent, no car needed, more things to do, everything close by, diversity of people, culture, jobs and industries. Last many big companies are in NY now, NY is pretty close to the valley for big companies. SF has outdoors, more VCs and better tech startup culture. NY you’ve got to travel a bit if you want those as well.Jun 20 2
- Interview elsewhere and use your Google competitive offer to get a good offer there.
If by then Google comes around, great. If not, you still have a decent place to go to.
- I see. Still, no harm in interviewing around. If he's good enough to get to this point in Google, he's good enough to do so at MS/Amazon/Salesforce/Tableau and the like.
Can't just sit on your hands and let your future be in someone else's hands, especially when they have no sense of urgency.
- One of my friend had a similar experience (L3) recently and he reached out to hiring managers through his friends at Google. Found a match and informed the recruiter. Finally, he got the official offer. That said, it helps if you have good competing offers and let your recruiter know that you're ready to walk out of the process/offer. They usually move you ahead in the queue in those cases.
If you're very confident about the interviews, push your recruiter to send the packet to HC before team match. HC approved packets typically have higher chances of team match. Also, you could then use the offer as leverage at other companies.
- Amazon gaHQ11Something wrong with ur recruiter or interview. I got a dozen matches in 3 days at L4 in mtv.
- Jet.com MxFp78Similar to what other folks are saying, I would interview elsewhere. Getting an offer from another company will give you leverage to skip certain steps. Also, it’s just good practice and intellectually fun.
Personally, they were able to push my official offer through after HC but before team match because I had competing offers.
- Same here, low HC for L4 NYC currently. I think hiring managers currently are interviewing a large number of candidates and pick one, so the competition is really high. Since I am relocating from another Country, I have no choice but to take another expiring offer (otherwise I will be jobless). Not sure if it is ethical to do team match while working in another company and leave the company after half a year if got a team match.
- The Google recruiter says I can continue to do team match while working and decide if want to join Google if a team is found (that should be a no brainer). The problem is the other recruiter (expiring offer) want me to decide in one day. Originally they give me 2 weeks but as soon as they heard I am doing team match with Google they want me to decide in 1 day. I know it's their negotiation strategy but as I am a new immigrant, I need a job first so I would probably accept it first.Jun 23 1
- New February0222Same here. No idea what I can do at this moment...(I am at the Bay Area)
Finished and passed my design challenge with Google at the end of May, but cannot proceed to the onsite interview cause there is no headcount of the L3 Interaction Designer...
The recruiter was really nice and told me one candidate used to wait for 6 months to get an opening...
- Trimble dwightBeetLet me tell you this from experience. I waited 4 weeks for team matching to happen. The recruiter advised me to do team matching before Hiring committee. I found the team (maybe because of L4). But when it went to Hiring committee they gave a reject.
What I would advice you is since you've been waiting for months now just ask the recruiter to go ahead and proceed with the HC. You will at least get a peace of mind. It would suck more if you get a reject after waiting for a few more weeks
