Is it a bad sign if a recruiter tells you that they got feedback but want to discuss it over the phone?

I got the same thing before being offered my current role at TikTok. Often if you don’t get the job, you’ll just be ghosted and feedback not provided. So hopefully congratulations are in order!

No, it might be standard work for their team

This is fairly standard CYA (Cover Your Ass) tactic by HR, with good reason. If you didn't get the job, and they provide written feedback, it could be used against the company later on in a lawsuit if any of the reasons indicated even a whiff of discrimination. Not saying that this is what has happened, it most likely isn't. But that's the reason for why they may choose to deliver the feedback over the phone instead of written.

And if you don’t get this role you might get great feedback to use in another job pursuit. Your title is ‘Product Designer’ you probably have many more options to pursue. Try not to take any of it personally and sometimes a dream job doesn’t go as planned and a fallback job turns out to be more interesting than expected.

Best not to overthink it. Schedule the call. No matter their message prepare your pokerface! Do whatever it is that gets you some calm just before. Meditate, exercise, shower, reading, whatever. Then you will be in a good place to accept rejection with dignity or not give away too much if the call becomes a salary negotiation. Good luck!

I got an ominous email like this after my final round only to find out I had gotten my dream job. The email read simply "I have an update to share with you by phone." Go figure.

It could be a good sign. I’ve only gotten rejections over email and offers over calls.

It possible they may offer you a role but at a lower pay scale or with a different team. Then the conversation is "will you accept this different offer"? It maybe worth preparing a little for that possibility.

Does anyone know if recruiters know whether. candidates applied and didn’t get a similar job on the same company 6 months before? For context, I applied to a role in a company on a team that matches my skills best, but had applied and went through the final round of interviews for the same company on another similar role in another team (different recruiters) but got rejected. Should I bring it up with my recruiter on the current job interview process?
