Very Difficult Interview

BOLD Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Google in March 2013.

Interview Details – Submitted application in October, heard back about interview in February. Two phone interviews, each thirty minutes long. Interviewers were great, and most questions focused on my background. Recruiter was very kind, and seemed to actually care about my progress. Heard back about offer in March.

Negotiation Details – Was considering two other offers. Immediately accepted Google.

BOLD Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and interviewed at Google.

Interview Details – Questions are largely behavior and fit, depending on the department. People Ops will likely not get case questions. Marketing or other departments like Commerce will get some sort of case question - not similar to consulting interviews, however. These case questions are more geared towards the department - for example, for Marketing, they might ask you what your favorite product/marketing campaign is, and then ask you how you would improve the marketing campaign if you were managing the marketing for the product.

Interview Question – Describe __________ as if you were describing to a 6-year old child.   Answer Question

BOLD Intern Interview

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Google.

Interview Details – You have to submit through the google BOLD site. Submit resume and a response to their essay question. They also ask for SAT and/or ACT scores. Once you submit, they start contacting people on a rolling basis. I didn't get contacted until late March. I was studying abroad at the time so I had two phone interviews and one interview using their online video "hang-out" app.

Interview Question – Tell me a time you were a leader?
What is your favorite google product? How would you improve it?

BOLD Intern Interview

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Google in May 2010.

Interview Details – The interview was extremely easy going. I had two back to back interviews and the questions were primarily behavioural. Key thing here is to be as genuine and honest as possible. The interviewers really guide you throughout the questions and give you cues if you are answering a question that is off-topic. Try to find out what team you are interviewing for before hand so you can research them. You will definitely be asked questions related to your position during the summer.

Interview Question – How do you organize or prioritize when you have 4-5 projects given to you at one time?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Extremely helpful HR; couldn't negotiate the salary but the start date was extremely flexible
