Sep 12 20 Comments

I Already accepted an offer from Google. But, FB and Apple finally woke up after 2 months and they have scheduled my phone interviews. Should I just continue with their interview process? I have no intention of joining them for now. If I clear their interviews now, will I have a better chance of getting noticed and my interview process done quickly in future unlike this time?

Location: India
Google TC: 36 lakhs INR
YoE: 2

    Go ahead and give the interviews. You will know what their interview process looks like. Also, do not stop preparing. If you crack fb/apple, you can have that confidence that you can crack them anytime in future as well. Also, if they offer you something you cannot reject, may be you will have a better compensation to nego with google. If you do not crack them, then you know where you are lacking skills and can keep that in mind in future.

    Also, you get to stay in hotels, eat free foodand roam places lol. You do not have anything to lose here. But a lot to gain if you use this opportunity well.

      They won't. You think its easy to find a candidate who clears the phone screen, moves past HC, gets a team matched and approved by VP and SVP? It takes a lot of time and effort , especially at G to find an ideal candidate. It is not so simple as you think it is. They will try to not lose you after 2 3 months of hustle around you.

      I don't have an option to negotiate with Google now. By the time my FB and Apple process will finish, I would have already joined Google.

      Good then. You can join google. Continue with the interview process with FB and apple. If you get an offer well and good. If you get a really interesting team and better comp, compare it with your team at G. If it is better, defer the offer and leave G after like 5months. Big companies have no issue in deferring an offer afaik. Also, you will have both G and F in your resume. Its never a bad idea to give an interview. Worst thing that can happen is you fail but you gain experience. Experience matters the most.

      Go to the interviews. Until you actually start your job at G, the offer could be revoked. CA is an at will employment State and an offer of employment is not binding. The idea that you’re milking the other companies for something shouldn’t be part of the math. Be open but confidential. Let them know that you are considering another offer but that you are very interested in working for them and do not want to foreclose your options. You do not need to (and should not) tell them who else you are considering.

      I interviewed a VP at my last company. The candidate tried to negotiate after accepting the offer. The offer was rescinded. If you care about your career, don't go back on your word.

    You’ve accepted the offer. You really won’t gain much out of this.

    Can you share TC breakup.
    Also find out what team you are interviewing at Apple. It's pointless if it's IS&T
