Had a Google onsite yesterday

I had 5 interviews, 6 if you count lunch. I felt like the four interviews went really well, with only one that went just okay. Pretty nervous though, still expecting a fail :( it's so hard to read your own interview performance

What's next? Would my recruiter let me know onsite feedback? He told me my phone feedback. How quick is the rest of the process, should I be fortunate enough to advance?

I really have been working my ass off to get here 😅Not much else I can do from here on out except wait.

TC: $95k, 2 YOE in Midwest

    I was notified within 24 hours of onsite that interview feedback was good. Team match over the next few days. About a week until I got approval from HC, another week for VP approval then yet another week for comp negotiations.
    My self assessment from my interview was mostly positive - was unable to finish implementation for one problem.

      Thank you very much for the timeline! The insight helps

      Mine was on a Friday and apparently they couldn't get ahold of my recruiter that day, so assuming my recruiter wasn't at work :(

      No, but it seems like a good place to stay for a while.

      kinda hard to tell, not much came from LC but noticed a lot of patterns. They really do ask more unique questions. But a mix, a few Hard, a lot of mediums. I had 2-3 questions each round minus one round

    From my recent experience with quite a few interviews, in general you've to feel mostly positive for all of your interviews to for an on-site to translate into an offer.
    Google is very risk averse when hiring for SWE roles.

      I felt great about 4/5 but yeah, one I answered the question but missed an edge case. Came up with the solution after the edge case was pointed out, and talked it through well. Hopefully it doesn't dock me too hard :( guess I'll find out in a few days

      Wait for your recruiter to collect feedback. Sounds like it went well

    It took a full month from On site to offer.
    So be patient.
    Also, with only 2 yoe... Google will be there, if not now, next round

    I have a similar yoe, did you get any system design questions?

    And from what I've gathered on forums Google is pretty slow with there interview process so be patient.

    Were you interviewing with Cloud or traditional Google?

      OP
      Traditional I believe, they just said it was for a general SWE position IIRC and only one interviewer was on a Google cloud team
