Team Match before HC for L4 SWE

Nov 21, 2019 11 Comments

Interviewed with Google recently. Recruiter said feedback was mixed, 2 very good and 2 "not as desirable". I am going through the team matching phase now. I am having a hard time reading experiences on blind. Is there any chance for me considering I am a borderline case. Any tips on what to do? Do I have a shot here?

    I also had an on-site at Google last week and my recruiter said he's accumulating feedback and getting my candidacy ready for review by the HC in a few days

    No mention of team matching at all yet. What does that mean and why is it different for you?

    Get a strong recommendation from a hiring team especially if you have relevant experience for that team.

    Also a lot of it is outside your hands most recruiters cant interpret feedback , how good is very good and if someone is rating you say 3/6 it may be because they judged too harshly. The hiring committe does take this into account and will if needed readjust it. The flip side is it the converse can also happen.

    Most likely downleveled if you pass HC.

      Is that something the HC considers? I asked my recruiter about this, she said the HC will make all the decisions.

      Yup, HC decides level. With your yoe, mixed feedback will be downleveled if given offer.
