A friend of mine has been interviewing for a role at Google. He completed all his rounds but mentioned that his experience with the recruiter has not been at par. So, for all the first 3 rounds, he had mailed the HR stating about the completion of interview, a one line feedback on how it went and asking for update if any. The recruiter had not replied back to his mails with any feedback rather he would just get the invite for the next round. <contd in comment>

Our recruiting process is quite painful. Just tell him to stay patient.

It be too weary and long.
Nonetheless, will convey.

Only for the last couple of rounds did the HR proactively called and gave feedback. Also, in one of the last rounds, the HR misguided him about the content of an interview which was initially supposed to be RRK but turned out to be behavioral. To add on top of that, he was also casually asked about his comp before the completion of all his rounds.

So, wanted to know if this is normal when interviewing at Google or is this a red flag?

Thanks G3. Your answer helps in getting a perspective, will pass on the info.
