How does Google hire anyone ?
I love google as a customer and I have been trying to work for Google for 12 years now. But no matter what I do, I just cant get Google to move quickly in the hiring process.
First some data
First role- 2009 May - 9 ish interviews distributed over 2 months. 4 months later I got a rejection at which point I had already joined another FANG<
Second role - 2015 June- Team screen positive. Then I waited. And waited. In between another FANG made a great offer and I joined them. In December 2015 (yes really 6 months later) Google reached out to say they had found a interested team. Had to turn them down.
Third role - 2021 April - Team screen positive. Waiting again. In August I joined a startup.
Fourth role - 2022 April - Team screen positive. Waiting again for 3 weeks ...
Given companies are going from first contact to offer in a matter of weeks if not days, how does Google ever hire anyone ! Are there any tips and tricks that you have found to make Google hire sooner ?
I have always been upfront with the recruiters about other companies that I am interviewing with, what stage each of them are in etc. It doesnt seem to matter to Google.
