    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through referral to be an Account Strategist at Google in Dublin. After Google reviewed my resume i was mailed in about a week for an interview. The interview took about 20 minutes and involved pretty basic questions (Why sales?/Describe your current situation/Describe your sales experience). After this interview they unfortunately had to come to the conclusion that I did not have enough experience.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Google in April 2014.

    Interview

    Very easy, properly structured, very helpful HR. There were three phases. The phase 1 was with HR for screening, they measure your profile (they even ask what you did in your previous job etc..) the second one was more technical..the third one had 3 interviewees...You need to make sure you know all google products very well.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Google in May 2015.

    Interview

    I was referred by a googler, and then I got contacted some days later by a recruiter. (important: you can only make it trough a referral. This is important, and it will pop up later on). The HR was quite messy, and she took 1 month to agree on a date. However, when I talked to her, the interview was very easy and she was very kind to me. Next step was with an account manager. Now, all questions are purely, purely behavioural on skills related to the job (tell me how you handle client, tell me how you have sold something, etc) and I did not had any google-product related questions, which threw me off a bit. No questions on googleyness. Just STAR questions. I did not pass to the next round. A couple of considerations: 1) the referral system screws off a bit, imho. I got the sense that when you are referred, you HAVE to be called and because of this you are staffed on positions which might not suit your profile. Because of the fact that your previous experience does matter, this is a problem which arise later on, and on which you are heavily judged on. 2) Because of the strongly behavioural driven interview, there are no real right or wrong answers - this is complicated that by the fact that Google interviewers look for "something" (googleyness), which is neither explained what it is nor actually explicable (I doubt that Goole can actually define what they are looking for). 3) Feedback is null. Again, in the process there is this heavy sense of vagueness. 4) At the end, you are tested on skills it is not apparently mandatory to have and judged on impalpable traits that are not clear at all. At the end, I am quite glad I was not hired.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Google in March 2014.

    Interview

    Quite messy interview process. First of all, I have the sense google only works trough refers - if you have one, you will go, otherwise you will not. This actually is quite a problem, because if you are referred what happens next is that you got interviewed almost 100%, but then you are cut off because of lack of experience later on, thus meaning you lose time. I got contacted from an HR quite sometimes after I got referred, and passed the first screening, with very basic questions. I then had a phone interview with a Googler who was quite hostile to me and made me just a couple of questions. Google is super structured - they really want you to be almost like a robot. Got a mail one week after saying I did not pass with no explanations. I personally think it is impossible to prepare for Google. Googleyness was not tested to me (and how to, in case? it is not even clear what it is), questions on Google products were not tested either, just one behavioural questions after another, with no real true answer (also; the interviewer test one question after another imo reading a paper, thus not adjusting to what you say/don't say). The sense of indefiniteness I had in the whole process, the total absence of reliable metrics on which I was judged on and the absence of a true feedback left me very perplexed, and I do not think I will apply to Google again.
