Rebels of Google: Softball Interviews for Ivy Leaguers and ‘Underrepresented Minorities’


by ALLUM BOKHARI
11 Aug 2017

A Google Research project indicating that underrepresented minorities and Ivy League graduates were more likely to receive softball interviews at the company was shut down by Google’s human resources department upon seeing the results, according to an insider.

The Google insider (alias “Chuck”), who worked at the company for several years, was part of a team tasked with determining which Google employees were most likely to succeed at the company based on their interview feedback.

According to Chuck, the predictive model they created determined that employees who received mixed feedback at the interview stage performed far better than those who received only good feedback.

Those who were most likely to receive only good feedback (“inflated interview scores,” in the words of Chuck) tended to be Ivy League graduates or underrepresented minorities. Those who were most likely to receive mixed feedback (and, according to the model, go on to achieve the most success at Google) were more likely to be white and Asian men who did not go to Ivy League schools.

The insider’s team had been tasked with the project by Google’s HR department, but according to him, they promptly shut it down once they realized its results would not serve their goals.

Chuck describes a frantic effort to recruit underrepresented minorities (i.e, people who are not white or Asian males). Underrepresented minorities, says Chuck, were given guaranteed phone interviews with Google.

According to him, this allowed Google to achieve any racial diversity quota they want by rejecting white & Asian males early in the process and assuming enough underrepresented minorities will be approved during the interview process.

The other bias Chuck witnessed at Google favored a very different group: graduates of elite Ivy League universities. Both groups have exclusive events and associations within Google.

Chuck describes Google as a “set of frat houses for Ivy Leaguers” in which non-Ivy Leaguers face a tougher interview process, and are denied many of the networking opportunities set up by Ivy League graduates. According to Chuck, Google recruiters divide schools into “Tier 1” schools (elite institutions) “Tier 2” schools (reputable schools with large numbers of underrepresented minorities) and schools that Google does not visit.

Type 2 schools, says Chuck, are only visited by Google for the purpose of obtaining interview candidates from underrepresented minorities.

Chuck says this has resulted in a massive class bias at Google. Despite working there for many years, he cannot recall a single white or Asian person in his entire department who was born to a middle-class family.

Chuck believes that the reason that white and Asian males from non-Ivy League schools do so well at Google is that they have to face a tougher interview process. On average, says Chuck, an employee who does not have the advantage of being either an Ivy Leaguer or an underrepresented minority is likely to be of a higher caliber than other candidates, as they alone are able to beat a recruiting system that’s biased against them.

Chuck says a common refrain at Google is that employees from state schools work harder than everyone else, but he disagrees: in a process that’s “massively biased” against them, he says, “only the strong survive.”

'Diversity' is code for 'anti-white male'. Nothing surprising about that. After taking a glance at some of Google's snowflakes, it is no wonder that they value hiring autistic, trans-delusional midgets with three fingers on each hand that happen to have allergies to alpha males. By the gods, that's like a who's who list of people who graduated from working at coffee bars in the Bay area. I bet most of them live alone with 20 cats. The men among them likely still live in their parent's basement and are still playing Everquest.

PC attitudes and policies in the west coast/IT field is commonplace. The real tragedy is the fact that this Damore kid is socially inept and cringe-worthy to listen to. The guy may write a good essay, and I agree with his points, but wow is he on the Spectrum. Can't maintain eye contact, laughs nervously, scoffs inappropriately; he's an interviewer's nightmare. FNC is wise to keep him off the show. Check out his 'conversation' with Dr. Jordan or Ben Shapiro.

He had a senior position at Google after four years. Something stinks about his motives. He wouldn't just throw it all away over a political opinion.

I bet a woman was involved. Perhaps he was scorned about a rejection and ranted about other women at his workplace? Perhaps he is so autistic he couldn't bag a coworker, so he posts a rant about women? Hm...

Well Jack, I hope you don't have any dead ones under your recliner or couch. :)

After seeing many of these Sillycone Valley people online and their hatred of white men I have no rush and frankly no desire to ever go anywhere near the place.

Thankfully we have the internet and I can compete with them fuckers from where I am while having something like 30% of the living costs and with employees having similarly 30% of the salary. Which means that if I pay someone 50% of Silica Volley salary they'll be feeling they're in heaven and I'm still saving 50%.

And at no point does the SJW thought police ever get involved.

Throw away what? He's worth what he is because he's a good developer.

He'll still be worth what he is if Google fires him. Four years, time to move on anyway, really. He won't want to fossilise at Google, I'm sure.

Obviously race issues didn't go away with the civil right legislation in mid 60's. :(

The fight goes on, and there are forces make the pendulum to swing to reverse direction.

History goes on in cycles, rationalism that created the American and French revolutions was followed by romanticism that created nationalism. And now we see another turn to post-truth nativism.

There will be blood. :twisted:
