    I have been working at Waymo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting technology to work on.

    Cons

    Probably half of the people working here came from Tesla. If you are not a “Tesla alumnus” you will never experience the same growth opportunities (and treatment) as Tesla refugees.

    Advice to Management

    People who didn’t go to Berkeley or MIT are not any dumber than those who have.
    You are skipping over real talent and experience just because they don’t have buzzword school names on their resumes. Huge mistake.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Waymo (Mountain View, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Applied online through referral, took about a month for a recruiter to contact me. Had a recruiter call and then technical phone screen a few weeks later - the recruiter ghosted on me after the initial phone call and never heard back after the TPS. Please give candidates a simple one sentence follow-up so they know if they are still in the hiring pipeline or not.
