Google - 3+ Months No Team Match

Sep 10, 2019 6 Comments

I interviewed at Google mid May for ML eng in the Seattle office. Packet went through hiring committee, and I got approved at T5 level.

Since then I met with 3 teams, but none worked out either because I wasn't interested or they decided to go with internal transfers. Recently my recruiter closed my process but said not to sorry since HC results are still valid for a year (though it feels a bit like we've given up at this point).

Does anyone have advice on how to proceed from here if I want to work at Google? I'm firm on doing ML and staying in Seattle/Kirkland.

    Uhh yeah so Google sucks at this part of the process. I had to inform my recruiter that they were taking too long so I was taking on more interviews. They found me a seat pretty quickly after that.

      Dunno. Seems weird for it to work like that. You're just keeping them informed.

    Me too — except I got accepted for L5 ML SWE back in January, also Seattle/Kirkland. Seems there’s almost nothing here. Major WTF. I was at Google previously in MTV. I just signed an offer letter elsewhere since Google sucks at this. I told Google I needed to make a decision in 2 weeks and they said they’d find another team for me to talk to but they never did.

    I actually did get a team match in January but they made a crazy lowball offer (lower than I was making at L4 2 years ago!!) so I declined and they wouldn’t budge significantly without a competing offer. So I came back several months later with a competing offer but the previous position was gone and there were very few teams hiring apparently.
