Failed AMZN and FB onsites in the past year, should I bother applying to GOOG

Aug 2, 2018 17 Comments

Failed AMZN and FB onsites in the past year, but receive an email invitation from Google recruiter to apply to "any number of differemt positions", the email looks very automated and generic. Should I bother will it just be an exercise in humiliation?

Thank you for the advice. At the time of Amazon onsite I did about 50 LC medium and by the time of FB onsite I did about 100, and much more targeted. I bombed Amazon but did quite ok with FB except for sys design.

    When I was an intern, I passed google’s but not Amazon’s. Next year I passed amazon’s but not Facebook’s.

    It’s entirely dependent on your interviewer beyond a certain point

    All encouraging comments were posted at the same time. Blind isnt 100% trolling, maybe just 99% :)

    Not with that attitude. Of the 3 it's my impression Google would have the most technically intensive interview process but that shouldn't discourage you. Leetcode and apply

    Maybe you’ll be lucky with a nicer interviewer or easier prompt... just apply. Nothing to lose. Once you drop the pride and not worried about failure, you’ll feel better

    If it makes you feel better, I failed I think 20+ interviews, 5 of them were with Google, before finally getting accepted by Google, Amazon and FB. So never give up :)

      Obviously my last ones were really good, because I learned from my mistakes in the first ones. Honestly now that I look back, I laugh at myself when I was interviewing in the beginning: I had no preparation (tech and soft skills), and I wasn't even confident. Every time I learned something new until I got them.

      That’s awesome. Any tips for Google?

    Never reject yourself, at least with interviews with these companies.

    It can go either way with Google. You can do well and still not get hired. It all depends on which way the wind blows that day. I would say though that Google interviews are fairly predictable.

      Predictable? As in?

    Why do you call it humiliation? You can learn from it.

    Did you identify your weakness based on the failed interviews? Focus on that, practice and apply. What do you have to lose?
