Maybe not the most ethical, but can you try and push some of the work off from your day job? Say you’re not feeling 100% or have a dentist appointment (lol)? If you really can’t get out of it, extend the time.

If you are interested in the role, just inform them that you would be available a few days from now. Remember, they’re interested in you so it’s totally okay to buy time

Did not make Google hiring committee due to 2 borderline interviews. Phone interviewer (American guy) gave me a strong feedback, 5 on site interviewers, 2 Desi guys gave me borderline feedback, remaining 3 American guys gave me strong feedback. Google requested a follow-up interview and the additional interviewer provided good feedback as well. I am not sure what's wrong with me, every time I interview with desi interviewer, I tend to screw things up.
