Is it just me or is Google's recruiting process a huge mess nowadays?
3 months ago:
- a L6 engineering manager and professional acquaintance contacted me on LinkedIn for a SWE position at Google that fits my profile. I applied using the referral link and an active channel specialist reached back on the same day to set up an onsite. Then nothing. No news.
2 months ago:
- referrer tried to figure out why it was so slow. Another recruiter contacts me to set up an onsite. I give my preferences, in 2 weeks time. Then no news again.
Before the holidays:
- Same recruiter contacted me again. Trying to set a time for the onsite, in February this time. Wtf???
Note that I passed HC 2/2 times already. Once for a internship and the second time for new grad 4 years ago.
TC: 260k, 3yoe. Leetcode problems solved: 600+, because I've been waiting for godamn 4 months to do this interview.
