In HR round of an interview, should we raise the issue of recent mass firings going on with companies? Would they be able to explain or give any kind of assurance regarding job security?

Yes you should. In every HR or managerial I do ask questions about job security. Once you ask these questions they will give more insight about the project or BU you are getting hired for. Which can help you decide which company to join at the end of notice period.

Thank you. This was very insightful

I would never trust an hr with that information. The entire job of recruiting hr revolves around convincing candidates to join the company. Even if you ask them, they are going to tell only good things so you accept and join the company. Mark my words, you’ll never see/meet the HR who recruited you once you join the company. So go ahead and accept the offer and do a proper research of recent layoffs that the company did. Again, do not trust anyone’s word for it, it’s only you who is accountable for the choice you make.

Hey folks, any thoughts when you finish last round of VO and haven't heard back from recruiter since then and still goes without update for more than a week (6 business days). As the HR didn't reply my email sent 4 days ago, I was wondering if I have to ask him again. This is indeed one of my most wanted job and I regarded my VO interview as a pretty successful one. Any experience when it takes a loooong time for the recruiter to get back to you after final round of interview?
Thanks!
