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!

Unless you're interviewing for a C-suite position, 5 interviews is just ridiculous.
Just be thankful you're not working for such inefficient and incompetent company.

Haven't they heard of panel interview? Again inefficient and incompetent.

I’m so sorry this happened to you. I’m sure you want to be looking at this the right way but what company would do that to you? If you don’t wanna share I completely understand but you probably dodged a bullet there.

Whether is it right to negotiate now, we accepted offer already. Her DOJ is June 9th.
