Still waiting 6 years for google to officially tell me that I didn't get the job after an office visit. 😈

Actually that happened twice, apparently if you blow off FAANG code interview because i said nah they come back 3 months later to ask you to come for on site interview.

Got you all beat. Interviewed at Lexis Nexus 9 years ago, never heard back.

Google is notorious for asking you to come back. People have interviewed 6 separate times before getting an offer.

I ask because It’s been 10 days since my last interview where the interviewer told me exactly who I’d be meeting with next and that I was a perfect fit etc... Sent a follow up a few days ago - and radio silence.

2 months

Slalom1, what’s your story?

Started my consulting career at a boutique. Applied while in school, had 3 interviews in 2 weeks, then radio silence for 2 months... and then was extended an offer out of the blue. Specifically for Slalom, there were times where I waited 2 weeks without hearing back between interviews. Same thing as you - they told me who and that they wanted to keep talking, but just hadn’t figured out timing yet. They also weren’t great at responding to my follow up in a timely manner, but it all worked out in the end. Stay hopeful OP, it’s not over yet!

Accenture took months to finally extend an offer. Deloitte was very responsive and had an offer in less than 5 days of the final interview

I had an interview last fall. Still waiting 😂

A question for recruiters. When you call someone asking them if they are interested in an opportunity and then ask them for a technical interview the next day and they ask for an extension does it impact their application? Recently it has happened to me twice that recruiter calls, he has my details and asks if I’m interested and then ask for same day or next day interview. And when I apologize since I actually have job to take care as well they just ghost me. Is this something that’s normal?

Recently had my technical coding interview - overall didn’t feel amazing about it, my interviewer kept misunderstanding and mis-answering my exploratory questions about the problem. Not sure when I will hear back, but I doubt it will be a positive. I know I’d be able to slam any of the later rounds out of the park (previous experience and achievements, questions around advanced ML theory, etc), is there an ability to progress through the rounds even if the coding section wasn’t up to par?
