Wanted to share LinkedIn onsite experience.

Position: Staff SE
Location: Sunnyvale
YoE: 12+

LinkedIn onsite:
1. Host Manager Round:
Went well. Some past experience questions and architecture questions. He seems convinced.

2. Coding + Algorithm Round:
Went well. Only one question. Leetcode Hard(not same but similar prob). Able to talk about approach and completed coding.

3. Lunch Interview Round:
Went okay. Asked few general questions and answered few questions from the interviewer. He did most of the talking relevant to company and my interest. Paid attention and asked good questions.

4. Staff Craftsmanship Round:
Went okay. Able to answer question okay. Lot of question on quality, priority, coaching etc. i think i did okay here. Maybe not my best. Really could have been better.

5. System Design Round:
Went well. Able to come up use cases and clarify use case. Asked lot of questions. I was able to show different approaches And trade offs.

6. Coding + Implementation Round:
Went well. Only one question. Leetcode Hard(same). Able to come up defining input and output, algorithm and coding. Ran a few test cases.

Overall, I feel I did good job but feel that I could have done better in Staff craftsmanship round.

It’s has been 4 business days and counting. Do you think I have a chance?

      LinkedIn isn't that high if you take bay area cost of living into account. You can buy a great house here with $275k TC. Even if LinkedIn staff makes $350k I doubt they'd be able to afford a house with all 10 school districts

      Live on cool aid as much as you want to be. I am not at MS and make more than you can think of. Know the details that’s why saying.

      Lmao cool story dude. I'm moving to Netflix next month and the math speaks for itself even at $400k I won't be able to afford a home like the one I have now

    Take a linkedin Premium account and see if any of the linkedin managers check your profile. Usually a manager checking your profile after interview suggests their interest. It took ~10 days in my case for the recruiter to get back and knowing that someone is looking at my profile assured me of my chances.

    Always let recruiters get back to you first - do not hurry up the progress yourself. On the other hand, it is “went well” rather than “went good”.

    It can take us a few days to get things together. I though that recruiters would normally tell candidates to wait at least 5 days. It wouldn't surprise for replies to take a week. (Good or bad)

      Recruiter mentioned he would get back to me by end of this week. Anyway, would follow up next week.
