I've read that you need a 2.75 average to make to HC. Anyone have any guidance on what range people usually get an offer at?

    We don't do numeric scores anymore. It translates poorly when given 41 options. We ask for a hire/no hire with lean and strong modifiers. HC then makes their own decision based on the notes mostly disregarding the overall ranking.

    You won't be exposed to any of this inside baseball so just give your best interview possible.

      are phone interviews treated similarly for moving to onsite?

      No. It's more subjective but two no hires (unless both no hires are weak and multiple strong hires) generally means no HC and one no hire with weak hires can nuke it. Three no hires is right out.

      @bullets - the large majority of onsite interviews are no hire, deliberately so. Hence the phone screen has a lower bar.
