Just do it. If you don’t, you will forget how the hiring process works… the longer you stay with same employer, more difficult it will be to find another job

I don’t think the interview process has changed too much besides being remote. It’s the number of hoops people have to jump through to potentially be told “you don’t have enough experience in X” (clearly didn’t read resume or LinkedIn..) or whatever excuse they come up with..

Share the same point of view, especially Amazon. Take a whole day off to go through that painful loop only to be ghosted. I guess it's a way to weed out some people. But on the flip side, you get an offer, and get to work in a toxic environment. Win win.

Yeah in the same boat - it’s exhausting I cant keep skipping meetings or delay my work to attend the interviews. Every company has a minimum 3-4 rounds and they never bother to read my resume beforehand. Job search is draining and that’s y i stay put in one company for min 2-3 years till I find my energy back to do it all over again 😂

Huh? Lol I don’t mind the screen, talking to the hiring manager and team lead. It’s when they want a presentation and for you to talk to 2-3 team members separately, the lunch lady and parking attendant, and lastly, the CEO vs. just one panel with all the necessary people. 2 hours is much more reasonable vs 6 1-hr meetings answering very similar questions and trying to not repeat yourself lol.
