Does the interviewer give a decisive go/no-go & the recruiter has no control over it ? Or does the interviewer just provide feedback & based on that it's up to the recruiter to decide whether to send the candidate to onsite ?

For SWE.

  • Typically interviewer makes the recommendation about next steps. Hence you have the hiring manager screen you during the telephonic stage to see if itโ€™s worth while bringing you Onsite or not

      True, I just want to know if it's a recommendation which the recruiter can perhaps override if it's on the fence, or is it a strict yes/no

    You pick up the phone, open laptop scene, and blame the Indian guy because you donโ€™t know answer to stupid pointless question. Roll up a joint, take a puff, and move on. Thereโ€™s only poison on the other end of the line. Call back next year same thing.
