airbnb recruiter not so responsive

Facebook Pack-Man
Sep 24 20 Comments

i have been interviewing with Airbnb and recruiter is kind of weird. He has been doing fine with reference to arranging the interviews, but doesnt disclose much about the team or the manager. I have asked multiple times.
For the interviews, I have to push to arrange those.
Recently, he accidently emailed that there was one more candidate for the same role.
Now, I am kind of annoyed that he should have pushed me earlier if he thinks the profile matches.
Also, what would happen if even after aceing the interviews, they fill up the other candidate. Does Airbnb offer other roles if that spot gets filled? Has anyone had any experience in the past?

      Cleared all rounds but ended up selecting another company. My bad experience with the recruiter is one of factors for the decision.

      Unfortunately, it is one of companies you listed as "Companies not interested in my profile" in the other post by you. The recruiter from the company was extremely patient and supportive so that I was very impressed and sent her a small thank-you gift after accepting the offer.

      I received an offer, but didn’t join since the work was not interesting. However, they are open if a new role pops up in the future

    It’s not nice. But engineers also go to companies with multiple offers and drop companies for better offers. Hiring is also a two way street.

      Usually recruiters are pretty welcoming and nice. Even if they interview multiple candidates they plan it properly. I guess the recruiter needs a behavioral interview

    Any recruiter is going to be talking to multiple candidates. It sounds like they’re recruiting you for a generalist role maybe?

    They will play hard to get so that you don’t think you are something. An attempt to pay you less.

    Horrible experience working with AirBnb recruiters. I highly don’t recommend.
