I have my mck interview this week and woke up with an eye infection this morning 😕 - would it be okay to email the recruiter two days before my interview asking for another date or is that a no-no?

If it will impair your performance, almost always ok to postpone a case interview. Just let them know; these things happen.

I think it's totally okay to ask :)
The interviewers will likely never find out that you changed your date so won't impact your interview.


Feel free to be honest and reinforce that you'd like to put your best foot forward and this infection may prevent you from doing that.

Good luck OP

Cool! Was worried that this would look kinda last min and not sure if they want proof or anything..should i wait to see if it gets better in the next day or two? Google says will take 7-10 days 😕

1. Use your best judgement on sickness.
2. Don’t think they would require proof.

It is last minute, but I am sure they would understand. It’s out of your control.

I would just postpone due to illness.

Hi, everyone! I’ve been licensed since Feb 2020. My first job was with the State & I stayed there like 1.5 years before leaving (I gained many skills).

I guess I didn’t meet their “expectations”—they expected me to learn everything within a week. ATP, I’m just getting VERY discouraged. Having interviews with no response etc.

Dear Xooglers here, I'm trying to figure out if I'm 'deny-listed'. Do Google recruiters ever try to rehire you?

I worked several years, so-so performance. I did decent work and worked long hours, but my managers sometimes results faster. Last manager was tough/volatile and I left abruptly (low note with him). Maybe he tried to retaliate. Maybe I was on performance improvement.

At job fairs, Google teams want to hire me, but I never hear back. My accomplishments are good... shrug. Thanks!
