      Wait, what's wrong with IT? Why would you assume printers? Internet technologies? If anything, it has more with old web hosting and web design than printers.

      And then, aren't we all working on internet technologies? How do you kids call it today? Does It seem like a pejorative term today? Maybe I'm just too old 😎

      Yeah, no. "Only my thing is relevant and you all others are peasants" is an unbelievable level of snobism. Just don't.

      IT at tech companies are generally internal technology (help desk, network, computer provisioning). IT at non tech companies, like finance, is basically anything that has to do with computers.

      Also, IT stands for "information technology", not "internet technology"

    This makes me feel great today. I was rejected for GCP as a SWE in October. Over 20 years of experience, including 2 at Amazon, yet I can’t land 1 of 4000 positions. I give up.

      Most googlers don't get in on their first interview. Spend a year doing one leetcode a day and implement a graph every Saturday and a tree every Sunday. A year later, you'll nail the interview.
      Feb 7
    • Amazon cayde
      I want to get in next year, so I'm interviewing in this March to get my first interview out of the way and I'll spend a lot of time this year reviewing graphs and trees.

    • Amazon LoanerBadg
      If you implement a tree every Sunday, you'd have a forest at the end of the year.

      If it makes you feel better I failed my interview first time at the last stage, then emailed my current manager twice to ask him to hire me

      It worked out in the end, don't let your dreams be dreams

      From a market share, GCP is barely a dent. But they are hiring like crazy in hopes of moving to the next level of competition. They are hiring some senior sellers to capture market share...

    Can’t read the article, but are they counting the contractors as ‘hires’? Google notoriously favor contractors. They are really expensive but ineffective.

      Hey Microsoft people, insults just rid of the bat? why being so defensive, damn!

      It’s known that Microsoft doesn’t have the brightest people, but you guys are for sure the rule, not the exception.

      There’s huge amount of Microsoft contractors that don’t wear the orange badge

      You never know, I might be doing contract work for Microsoft.

      Hey! Deep Mind, why don’t you think a little deeper before you talk? Also this is typing, which means you can literally spend some time on “deep thinking” and editing before you spew out such abomination of response.

      Why so much hate toward someone (idiot) you’re clearly superior too? Is that insecurity I’m sensing here? Could it be you’re not a FTE? 🤔(deep thinking)

      I thought I’m wasting my time debating with someone with no mannerisms, but the “deeper I think”, this is fun actually. 🍿

    Google hire just few compare to its wealth. while they are one of the richest company, the benefits doesn’t come to millions of Americans who needs good jobs.

      Only costs billions to replace those $16/hr meat bags...
      Feb 8
    • @pJcW86, do some simple math. The investment would pay off really fast. 120,000 warehouse workers x ~50,000? = 6 billion!!!!

      Not to mention they work 24x7 so really means replacing 3 workers. No union, no breaks.
      Feb 9
    • Microsoft pJcW86
      Indeed here is the simple math: one robotic arm that can lift 50lbs is 30-80k for the hardware. Double that for the dev to build the software to get it working. The arm lasts 2-5 years depending on when you want to upgrade and usage. Now you need to hire hardware engineers at 200k+ to maintain. True you save on HR related costs (less people=less HR and recruiters) but you need more expensive people for data and analytics on robotic production. It roughly costs 3x-5x the salary of a meatbag to replace them right now and it is still high risk.

      @onMyWay It seems to be common. Like the call notes don't go in the same system and a recruiter for another department won't see them. Or they don't care.

      Google referrals are a bit more personal, requiring the person to write rather lengthy paragraphs detailing your skills. Compared to Amazon, a Google referral will probably actually be looked at.

      @functi I was already rejected by OCI. I don’t see why, because the phone tech screen went well. You might even be the guy who rejected me. I’m now a big flop with tech companies. I give up. Hopefully the NYC finance world will take me back, I’m trying right now.
