What does it mean when recruiter wants to schedule call after onsite

No mention of offer or rejection so what does it mean when recruiter wants to schedule phone call after onsite at Uber.
Now I can't stop over thinking about it and I would rather prefer rejection over email than over phone call.

Update: After 3 months of long process and so many rounds of interview with 2 on-sites, the recruiter finally said that team had decided to move in a different direction and it was not an easy decision.
I feel lost and defeated and as if I had failed

    Verbal offer or politely rejecting with some feedback. Good Luck!

    Hahaha this is so relatable. First, you had an on-site with Uber so congrats that's more than most people can say. Second, from my experience rejections come in the form of an email. Third, if the recruiter wants to schedule time with you that tells me he/she values your time and had something meaningful to say. Whether or not it's a rejection, an offer, or something in between is hard to say (we're not mind readers) but don't sweat it, you'll be ok either way.

    I doubt that it's an offer. Usually when it's an offer, the email conveys that. I really hope I am not right about this. Good luck! And remember there is always another great job that you can go to.

      @angela-g - It was to schedule time for one more round of interview with senior leadership. I have already had multiple rounds so wasn't expecting this but I think it would be nice to directly interview with senior leadership and also learn about the role/org from their perspective. Let me know if you have any suggestions or insight which I can focus on while preparing for this interview

      That's good news OP. With senior leadership it should mostly be behavioural interview.

    It’s likely an offer. They will tell you over the phone, discuss salary expectations, and make sure you are still interested before they send you anything written.

  • Dude you'll find out when the phone call happens. It can go either way and Internet strangers can't tell you

  • Potentially an offer or another manager who was not available for earlier interview rounds wants to speak with you. Some organizations try to get buy in from several members of the team before making a decision.

    Can be anything. Take it as an update call or further information gathering.

    On face value I would say they have good news but OTOH I have had a post onsite call where it was simply to say thanks but no thanks.
