Anyway, good luck!

 

That seems like a total dick move. Just curious, what's the point? Weed out maneuver or are there legitimately 7, 8, or 12 groups of people that need to interview you?

Fuck if I know. The Senior VP of HR described it as a broken process, after telling us she'd gone through 19 rounds of interviews over 6 months.

Is that a typo? 19? I have never heard of someone enduring that many interviews.

it's usually a CYA more than anything. hiring decisions are really important and the biggest PITA if you get them wrong. so most "risk averse" people want as many people to sign off as possible so that they can say hey, we all fucked up together

No typo. 19 separate interviews, several of which were panel style. Going through Glassdoor.com descriptions of our interview process is hilarious.

Realtors seem to be the worst offenders. They put their face on everything.

Interviewing is a 50/50 thing. 50% of it is chemistry and 50% of it is justification. Basically, most people try to "connect" to who they are going to hire and then justify it.

+1. Why can't they just drive in the right or middle lane if they insist on going the speed limit? Doesn't everyone know the left lane is for passing?!? (rhetorical, obviously they don't...)

Senior VP of HR, of course.

We seem to hire a lot of people by passing them around until they "click" with a group or a particular position. This means that they'll go through a whole round of interviews without receiving an offer, then several months later go through the same process with a different team, and so on, until they find the right fit and finally get an offer. It's retarded, but it rewards persistence. By the time someone has survived that process they have demonstrated that they are very serious about coming to work here.

19 interviews is ridiculous. Makes a little more sense as you've described it, but it's still ludicrous.

When Ludacris was really popular, I'd get a lot of students describing various arguments as "ludacris" in their papers.

Even worse is when they're side by side with someone driving the limit in the right hand lane, completely killing the flow of traffic while being totally oblivious. Infuriating!
