I found a company I was really excited about working at. I applied for the job and went through 5 rounds of interviews. At the end they said I was OVER qualified and they want me for a different position higher up in the company. I was super excited they then had me go through 5 more rounds, 3/5 people were the same. The interviews mostly went "didn't you get the job, I highly recommend you? I'll just put you down as a 10". After those were done they told me I was UNDER qualified. Can't win!

Hi Fishes,
Anyone who joined PwC AC Bangalore recently and is/was on bench for 2-3 months?
I'm worried about getting "FIRED". Does PwC fire in such cases?

Connected with Deployer, Coach and RL many times they say I should wait and need not worry whenever requirement will come they will inform me. I have been on bench for 2+ months now.

Hi Fishes,
I had 4-5 rounds of interview in Amazon in last 1.5 months, including bar raiser. I got a mail stating I am selected for position within 4 hours of my bar raiser round.
HR asked for a few documents like last 3 months payslips, ECTC etc. It's been 4 working days and that HR is not replying on my mail. It is fine or something is off track ? Any suggestions ?
Does they usually turn back after sending selection mail and asking for documents

Thanks in advance !

Treat the interview as a conversation, not as an interrogation. 
👥 Interviews are actually two-way streets. 
It’s your opportunity to interview the company as much as they’re interviewing you. 
Too many candidates forget this. 
They go into the interview ready to be “questioned” and reel off their answers to common questions such as “tell me about yourself” and “why do you want this job”… 
And they wait until the end of the interview ask any questions of their own. Don’t give the interview power
