Hi guys I had my onsite about 11 days ago, my initial feeling was that things went well with some minor improvements I couldve made for one of my interviews. Anyway I followed up with the recruiter more than a week ago and he said he'd let me know when he has all my feedback. Fast forward to this week, I didn't hear anything on Monday so I decided to shoot him a quick email today asking if we were still waiting for feedback. He replied a couple of hours later asking if "I had time to connect tomorrow".

Now I know Blind leans towards reject on everything, but I think I at least did well enough to be presented to hiring committee, not saying anything about hire/no-hire decision.

What do you guys think this call is for? Theres no way he presented to hiring committee so quickly with Thanksgiving and everything. Did you just get a quick email to be informed about moving to HC or was it a phone call? Note that he didnt answer my question about whether he had all the feedback or not, simply said "let's connect". I know no one here has the "right" answer as only the recruiter knows what's up, but curious to hear other experiences?

    It’s most likely a reject imo. From my experience if it was good news, they usually hint at it in the email (exclamation points, use of positive words, lengthier sentences, etc).

    When it’s curt and neutral, usually a reject. It’s better to assume a reject anyways since you won’t be let down, if it’s an offer then you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

    Also from my experience, people are terrible at gauging their own interview performance. Usually when they think they did well, they usually didn’t do nearly as well as they thought. Vice versa as well, many times the ones who were super critical about their performance tend to have done great.

      Yea that's what I was thinking too, when I passed the phone interview the recruiter (different recruiter/girl) said "I have some good news" in the email. Oh well. I'll update tomorrow based on what I find out.

    I got the same mail on Monday to schedule a call. She just informed me that she got the feedback from all the interviews and she is sending the packet to HC on the call.

    Update for anyone that cares -it was a reject. Recruiter actually gave me very detailed feedback, said I was great at coding and speaking while coding, analysis was good, technical skills were good, but my speed - given the difficulty of the problem was not good. Told me to come back and interview again soon as I was really close. I have 3 other Big N on sites coming up. Let's hope those go better.

    I purposely spent time analyzing to show my analytical skill, maybe they just want speed? Google's process is so theoretical it seems.

      Thank you and honestly I dont know because he refused to tell me if I had gone to HC or not. I'm leaning towards not, but I have no way of knowing. It was pretty detailed feedback for what its worth.

  • Give us a follow-up!

    I asked the same question on Blind after my interview. Everyone said I would be rejected but I got the offer.

    • That's sounds like reject but glad to know it was positive
      Dec 3, 2019
    • Yes, "feedback" vs "next steps" / "$positive news"

    It could be a call to let you know that you're heading to hc

    I'm in the same boat as you - onsite at G last week, recruiter emailed today asking to call tomorrow to discuss status. To be honest I'm feeling like I will get rejected because I've had shit luck for the last year. I really hope both of us get good news.

    • You will do awesome...don't be too hard on yourself about being slow on purpose....if you did normal Google would have said you were too fast and not structured
