I just finished what I thought was the final round of interviews for a job that I really want. Everything has been going extremely well. The recruiter just called to tell me that they want me to do one more round, though. This will make 8 interviews total, including a full case study presentation to 4 people. Should I be worried? Is this a red flag?

If a hiring manager can’t make decisions on how to hire for their team, imagine how they would make decisions on other work. Sounds exhausting

At least 5 too many. Agency or in-house? Just curious.

It’s in-house.

They're dicking you around. 8 rounds is a red flag.

8 interviews is rather excessive. What level position is this? If it’s Executive Leadership, than I wouldn’t say it too much cause for concern. Or, if the company is really big on culture fit. Although, these are usually less buttoned up interviews in the final stages.

Assuming the case study was previous work? If they had you create work, mixed with drawing out the process is a red flag.

This doesn’t sound that crazy. Just a bit disorganized maybe.

8 rounds of interviews or interviews with 8 people?

Like I’ve done recruiter —> hiring manager —> panel (3-4 people) —> exec so 6-7 people but 4 interviews.

I feel like this is an opportunity to convince another potential team mate. I think it should be encouraged to talk to as many people as possible through out the process.

I interviewed with 7 different people for an internal job, it would have been a lateral title, albeit in a different capacity. I work for a Fortune 50 company. 8 seems a bit much for an external hire, but depends on the role and if the people you’re interviewing are from different teams in the same org

Absolutely preposterous. Companies today are so bloated and bureaucratic, they waste everyone’s time. Look at the opportunity cost. I wonder how many annual salaries are spent in literally a single month with the insane number of hours spent across dozens of people trying to hire one person.

Hey guys! I’m looking to pivot my industry and get into working in the entertainment industry as a marketer. However, I have never worked in entertainment before and I want to build up my skills for a year or 2 before applying for larger entertainment companies like Viacom or Warner Bros.

Background story - I interviewed with a company that I really want to work for for a role that I was a perfect fit for. I went through 5 rounds of interviews then was told that they ended up going with an internal referral however the entire team loved me so much and they're looking for other roles for me. I thanked them for their time and didn't really take their word but 2 weeks later I get contacted again for another opportunity on a different team. (Cont'd in comment)
