Is it good or bad that my candidacy is going to the "hiring committee" at Google?

Nov 20, 2019 14 Comments

I had an on-site at Google a little over a week ago.

My recruiter said recently he's accumulating feedback from all my interviewers and is "getting my candidacy ready for hiring committee" in a few days. What does that mean? Is it good or bad? At Uber the interviewers just debrief amongst each other and make the decision. Is it different at Google?

As far as how the interviews themselves went, I had one where I blew it out the water, 2 good ones, 1 decent and 1 meh.

    Edit: Score differs, only heard from a Googler so not enough context. Good luck, fingers crossed. HC at Google is a group of people who look at your profile and feedback overall (not interviewers) and make a decision.

      Ah I see thanks. Seems super bureaucratic compared to just the interviewers debriefing and finishing it at that

      That is the old scoring now they rate from 1-6 so I guess it should be above 3.

      It’s actually a great thing since that way your quality bar is ensured and easy to switch teams vs at Uber where in some groups they make you do a full loop

    Hiring committee is just a part of the hiring process. Every external hire go through them.

    🙄 As opposed to not going to the hiring committee?
    🐒It means you got to the next step.

    I believe after hiring committee, they will do team matching if the committee decides to hire you. If they decide not they will call you to let you know they will not be hiring you and that you can re-apply at a later time.
