New week, more waiting for team match from G

I keep checking my email.

Everyone said passing HC was the hard part. It's not waiting for TM is the hard part. At least before HC I didn't have my hopes up.

Now after HC my hopes are up and everyday of waiting feels like it takes forever.

    Why do G do this? Seems like a massive defect in their hiring policy

      Because they can. People will still accept offers.

      Position is open to qualified candidates. If the managers like his performance, they will want the candidate in their team.

      Doesn't seem like it's open at all though. None of my friends' teams are hiring.

      Recruiter keeps telling me there's a long wait for NYC cause no open headcounts.

      West coast also has a long wait.

      Maybe they make you wait so long that you won't have any other offers left and can't negotiate lol

    Lol I waited months and just went elsewhere. Passing HC used to be the harder part when google was hiring a ton. Now TM because they're not hiring junior devs

      @Walmart: how many years of experience are they asking for to be in the l5 loop?

    Did the recruiter share any feedback after your final round and then HC decision or was it HC decision only? Also, how much time did the HC decision take after your interview?

      After onsite recruiter said i had good feedback and tried to team match first before HC.

      After a couple of months of no TM, recruiter sent me to HC and I passed so they said congrats and called and everything and started a new round of team match

      Oh ok, I thought TM happens after offer from HC. Isn’t HC also an elimination stage?

      It is usually does happen after HC but they started to change it up so that people have an easier time passing HC.

      After 2 months i didn't get a team so my recruiter sent me to HC without manager support and I ended up passing.

      Recruiter said that it should be easier to get a team now but so far nothing

    Push hard in sep/oct. Things really go dark late Q4 during planning and open up again mid Jan. G interview process is completely broken in terms of candidate experience.
