Architect Interview

Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Google in September 2009.

Interview Details

was contacted by a recruiter. Was interviewed via phone for about an hour. Was brought in for a full day of interviews. Many very bright people interviewed me.

The most annoying thing was that even though I had 23 years of extremely relevant experience, 12 patents in that area, 2 books and countless magazine articles I needed to answer mundane puzzle questions.

At the senior architect level this type of interviewing is almost insulting.

Reasons for Declining

Did not like being treating like a fresh college graduate after 23 years of experience. It a made me feel like my experience meant nothing (other than the nice salary they offered)
