Palantir Interview Process

Since there is no HM position in palantir, which is what I’m assuming. The HM interviewer that I got was a software engineer

If you get to the HM interview after the 3 interviews and product demo, but then get a reject. Does that mean I failed the HM interview?

Any one have datapoints in relation to this?

    I don't have an answer, sorry. Was the HM round purely behavioral?

      I read online that if you pass the first 3 rounds you are taken to the HM round which is after a product demo.

      The HM round consisted of behavioral questions and a coding question.

      I didn’t even know the interview schedule before even interviewing nor next steps. They leave it vague for some reason idk

      It was a system design for round 1
      Coding debugging round 2
      Coding for round 3

      For one data point a friend of mine passed and didn't receive a coding question during the HM round

      I hate how vague they are about the process. It makes me believe I didnt make it pass the HM interview but the tech lead guy was literally the same age as me from the same college lol

    HM interview is sometimes given even when a candidate is not tracking for an offer if there was some internal debate among the previous interviewers and the HM thinks there’s even a small chance that some signal was missed

      Hmm okay I feel better then cause I didn’t think I did that well on the previous 3 interviews. Since palantir supposedly has a high bar, I didn’t think I passed the first 3 in the first place.

      The recruiter presented it as good news when I got the HM interview.

      Thanks for the clarification tho :)

    It can also mean they couldn’t fit you in one of their teams. If you’re a non-citizen, this result is more pronounced

    @kebab, did you speak with the HM on the same day as your three other interviews? Or was it a video/phone interview or another onsite?

    I think NYC and Palo Alto might have different processes for HM interview, so it might help to know where you interviewed.

      Same day I had the option of taking it another day but I might as well get it over with. It’s neither of those locations
