Google team match before hiring committee

Does team match help before hiring committee and how much weightage does it carry ? Or is team match for candidates who haven't done well on site. I have had 6 matches with teams after onsite, so hope it is worth the time.

    To be clear I’m not trying to be negative. I’m in a similar position and this is based on what the recruiter told me. Highly positive or negative packets are easy decisions and the rest need more info like team availability etc

      My read is that either my recruiter didnot take my packet to HC at all as i refuse to share my competing offer TCs or just that genuinely they are split.... was asked to wait for this week

      Any update from you all? I’m in a similar situation now — got a team match prior to HC and a strong letter of rec from a friend at Google

      I’m also going through a team match before HC. Did you get the offer?

    The new policy for all senior levels are team match b4 HC. Regardless of interview and team match, HC can reject and there seem to be more of these rejects the more higher the levels are...

      In my case it’s L4-L5 for sure

      @RTwW43, 3/8 HC accept rate seem very low for L4/5 as it seemed that these were supposed to be more like 90% accept rate.... anyways good luck to all of you and me...

      That number is from quora from a post by Bob See. It could definitely be off. Sorry should’ve mentioned that in my post. Either way, I guess I’ve adopted the view that the packet is immutable now nothing to do but wait. And yes, good luck to us all :)

    New process is team match and HC happen in parallel. Neither affects the other. If feedback is mixed they may go fishing for a HM that wants you before heading to HC. If nobody wants you I don’t know what happens

      Right on. Sequence is less important as no one knows what happens next in most cases 😊😊😊

    I went through the same. Team match before HC usually mean you may be on the border line. If any team express a good interest, then recruiter ask the manager to submit a letter on why you are good enough to be considered. If that is strong you can sail through HC easily.

    So fingers crossed

      Its a negative result in my case and took around a week

    • Microsoft / Other Scooby Doo
      Was the message clear or ambiguous? Like in a case it was unclear as the message was something like feel free to join if you have any expiring competing offer...

      Your message is not clear to me dude

    • Microsoft / Other Scooby Doo
      Were you outright told that your result was negative?

    I know this is an old post but I just wanted to add that before I even did my onsite interview my recruiter told me that I would be doing a team match before the hiring committee. I think that this is just their new way of doing things and doesn't have much to do with your interviewer feedback. Hiring committee is deciding on me today, fingers crossed!

      Somehow by the grace of the hiring gods I passed the hiring committee, unless something weird happens in final review I should get an offer by Friday :)

      @Sogeti I wonder about what the compensation is like in Austin considering the lower standard of living. What team did you match with? Did you get a good offer? Are you able to share details?

    My team match is only after HC after getting offer.

      Which level you are targeting?
      May 22, 2018
    • Microsoft liveordie
      L4 which is decided only after HC.

      yes

    It helps to the extent that if you’re borderline then instead of a straight reject, they spend a few mins and consider interview feedback. The idea being that a fully positive packet or 4-5 strong hires is an easy decision but anything else needs more context like available headcount. They also do team match earlier if you’re targeting a very domain specific/non-L3 position.
    I’d suggest not getting hopes up too much since HC primarily based decision on interview feedback
