Do companies really look at which badges/super badges/ projects you’ve earned on trailhead while making hiring decisions ? How important are these apart from certifications and past experience?

I interview for tech roles and I think it’s nice if you have trailhead badges. I do give some consideration to the super badges (I have a few and they are harder). However, it is very easy to cheat your way through trailhead. Certs are better, but experience is best. None of it matters if you can’t answer open ended questions and help me understand that you actually have the knowledge and know how to apply it.

Maybe for junior position it matters. For more experienced candidates we look at certificates and I don't care abt trailheads

As someone who interviews candidates, I often ask how they stay up to speed and learn new skills- the answer often involves trailhead (which I think is great to hear), but I don’t care about specific badges or number of badges. I’m interested in what steps people take to learn and grow and about their curiosity and initiative vs badges.

I have never been asked about badges as a junior staff. People only care about certifications.

The experience I had with RH was mostly positive. I think the negatives were with the company and not RH.
