Hiring committee process at google

Completed onsite at Google for swe, recruiter said feedback was generally positive and submitted the package to hiring committee.

If recruiter decides to submit the interview feedback to HC, does this usually result in an offer or is it still up in the air?

Also, what is usually the timeline of getting a decision from HC?

TC: 190k

    It depends on the HC but I think pass rate at HC is somewhere around 20-30%?

      Wow, that’s a lot lower than I expected

      Yeah, reaching HC basically means you aren't an outright reject. The actual discussion of whether you should be hired all happens in the HC (based on interview feedback).

    Still up in the air. The recruiter will let you know when HC is supposed to meet and when your packet will be reviewed. Once HC has made their decision, they will let you know within a day or two.

    Good luck with HC and Team Matching

    HC meets in NY on Thursdays (L3/L4).
    Had the interview on 27th (Thursday). Was told on 1st that the review from the interviewers was positive and she wants to send it to HC ASAP because I have other deadlines pending. It was a long weekend and HC was canceled. So, the packet was forwarded to the HC today. Recruiters are also present at the HCs. She called me 10 mins after the meeting today!

      That’s great, what was the outcome? Do they want to hire you?

      Yes, but for L3 (not L4). And they don’t have any headcount for L3 at the moment. They asked me to stay in touch with the recruiter. If roles open up in the next one year, and there is a match, I can take it if I want to.

      I am taking another offer right now!

    How long did it take for you to hear back about the packet moving to HC, after you completed the onsite? How were your interview coding rounds?

      It was ~1 week. The recruiter is speeding up the process for me since I told her I have an offer from another company at the moment.

      The interviews went fairly well for the most part, but I majorly screwed up one of the coding interviews and couldn’t come up with an optimal solution after providing the brute force answer.

      Thanks for letting me know! Is 1 week the sped up process? Damn, that still seems long

    I was notified when my packet went to HC and then was informed about level and recruiter discussed/ negotiated comp. HC decision came to me the next day. After TC was finalized, they said that the packet is sent to SVP for approval. Now the recruiter told me that the hiring manager needs 2 weeks to decide even though all approvals were obtained. I have given up hope on this.

    So in short, even after all the approvals the offer can still be in the air till you finally get it :-)

      I used to think that SVP approval always happened after but mine happened even before TC was finalized. It's possible that they are waiting because HM has too many candidates to choose from.
