    At Microsoft its 150%. If you come to MS and can code fizzbuzz you're in. If you dont come to MS, no worries they'll still take you.

      MS highly depends on which team u interview with, which is a shitty system. The hiring bar could be as low as 1 micro meter in wdg to a few millimeters in office/azure to a few meters in bing. It degrades the brand. I have seen friends not looking for a job change and without preparing for interviews, were able to get offers when interviewing just for the free flight.

    I don't think Amazon is -40%, how would that even work

      OP
      What do you think it is ?

      I can tell you that in a sourcing drive a couple of months back we phone screened ~275 people and had less than 15% go to interviews of which only 12% of the 15% actually got an offer. I think at Amazon this may be dependent on ORG as the p50 is different everywhere.

      So if you don’t count the base phone and technical phone screens (the latter of which is essentially an interview for an hour) and only count the multi-hour onsite then the rate is 12% otherwise closer to 2%.

      So you're saying 5 out of 275?

      @Google:left - That is in line with my own observations as well. This may be due to shitty sourcing, something Amazon HR has acknowledged but also our technical phone screen bar is sometimes a bit higher than I would suspect it needs to be. I don’t know stats on how shorty general sourcing is, but our last hiring rush was sourced by people in the position, and not hr, still saw results just a bit better... maybe 4-5% overall

    Phone interviews at fb are recommended to suggest a candidate for on-site if they think they have a 25%+ chance of passing the on-site

      Phone interviews are intended to maximize the on-site pass rate.

      What does that even mean? It's always a balance between false negatives, volume and time spent interviewing.

      It means the whole point of the phone interview is to select people that you think have a high enough chance of passing the on-site. Phone interviews are much cheaper than an on-site.

      I think that's kind of obvious.
      Mar 11, 2018
    • How do you estimate that 25% chance? It means the interviewed can make enough mistakes and still move on?

    hahaha guesser from Capital One ☝️

    Done lots of interviews and my acceptance rate is ~15%. And in most cases my decision was same as other interviewers :)

      Yeah and your acceptance rate is of the candidates that likely went through a phone screen and technical phone screen.

      Yeah and my personal stats include many phone interviews as well and what I’m saying is overall based on both format.

      Yeah and my personal and org’s stat is not representative of overall amzn rate, but it’s probably closer than OP’s guess.
