That could be perceived as borderline harassment. They owe you nothing, they aren’t your consultants to give you interview critique and advice. For any case interview, they want to see your thinking and they have a set of questions/points they want you to address; you may have not been as strong as they expected or as strong as other candidates. They aren’t here to teach you how to do cases or help you improve, so just try to let it go. Keep practicing

Thanks for the reply! Obviously by no means would I want to harass anyone. I personally wouldn’t mind if the roles were reversed, therefore my curiosity. If this was an opportunity to gather structural criticism from the interviewer themself, I wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity! I thought I interviewed well so I was shocked when I didn’t pass. Recruiter said “we generally test for business, technology and design mindset and the interviewer felt like you didn’t quite hit the mark.” That response doesn’t really help me so I was looking for an opportunity to learn from the failure.

Let it go. On some level you know enough to learn from this and prepare for your next opportunity

Fair point! Thanks!

@OP, my initial reaction (like yours) is that it would be fine as long as it’s phrased gently. So I just want to reassure you that you’re not being crazy, lol.

That said, it seems most people are pretty strongly against it, so I’d probably take the advice of the majority.

Haha yes thank you. I genuinely would be happy to provide feedback to someone who asks for it so was a little surprised by the strong responses.

I will take the majority’s opinion and “let it go” and not bother the guy

Looking for perspectives - I had a panel interview and the hiring manager shared verbatim feedback (copy pasted) gathered from the panel. It’s not labeled with the interviewers names, just color coded. Hiring manager summarized it as “mostly really positive”, and it was, but with a few neutral responses and a question if I’d struggle with an intangible product, for example. I should get word on if I get an offer tomorrow.

My question - what is the reason for sharing the verbatims?
