      Their hiring team is God awful, but it doesn't stop the recruiters from bragging about how their shit smells like roses.

    Yeah it's frustrating, they take advantage of candidates knowing they can stockpile a bunch of them

      Darn, i don't know why my team match is taking so long. What language did you interview in?

      I think it depends on the areas you were interested in. Might be helpful to ask the recruiter what teams are hiring. It does not depend on language as I got matched to teams which use a different language.
