Advertising Operations Associate Interview

Interviewed at Google

Interview Details – After rescheduling 3 phone interviews, Google called finally got in touch with me. They wanted a complete description of my undergraduate experience (my brief overview was not sufficient and asked for more details) and a full explanation of my qualifications as an advertising operations manager at a publisher in Oakland.

Interview Question – There weren't any questions that seemed difficult. They were surprisingly easy.   Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Google.

Interview Details – I had 6 interviews (two on the phone and four on-site). I was impressed because I thought the interviews were a lot of fun (each interview lasted for around 45 minutes)! It's a really long process through.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Google in March 2011.

Interview Details – Had phone interview, that was mainly focused on my background.
Unfortunately, the main question was "why do you want to work for Google" and after 15 mins of telling what a great company it is, they still weren't satisfied.
Apart from that, pretty common stuff. What did u study, where and when. Any previous work experience and what is a good customer service for you.

Interview Question – Why would you like to work for Google   Answer Question

Advertising Operations Associate Interview

Advertising Operations Associate
Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Google in March 2011.

Interview Details – -The initial phone interview was with my recruiter. This one was more about the position itself and most of the time my recruiter talked. She asked why I wanted to work in Google and why this position. Also asked about my background. at times I was kind of stressed and couldn't find the right words, she intervened softly and comforted me via filling the gaps.
-The second interview was with my boss to be. This one was a bit more tough, although nothing too intimidating. He asked me about the online marketing situation in my country. Also asked about a time I had a conflict with someone and how I dealt with it. Another question was regarding my leadership skills. Lastly he asked about the SMEs, and there I totally failed because i was so unprepared about that question. I think that was why I couldn't get an on site interview.
