After submitting an application on their website, they sent me a message asking me to set up a time to have a call with them. Went through that. Very basic questions.Received an e-mail asking me to set up a time to interview on-campus. Did the interview on my college campus. Did not make it past that stage.

    Interview

    The scheduling of the interview went quite smoothly, and the coordinators had prompt replies. However, during the phone interview the phone connection was so bad that I could barely hear what the interviewer was saying and I could hear my echo clearly with a 2 second delay. That really distracted me from performing my best, however, after emailing them, they said they wouldn't do another interview but would take that into account while evaluating me.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a very hypothetical question that required a wide range of knowledge and estimations.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Overall, I thought that the HR department at Google was very helpful and easy to work with. However, it seems that for APM they are still using Fermi Questions. Overall, I was not happy with my performance on the interview, but much of that has to do with not knowing what to prepare in the first place. It didn't seem like going over technical skills helped at all. The first round was a Fermi Question (below) and other questions like

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Initial communication was simple and seamless. I had 5 interviews - 1 phone screen and 4 on-site interviews. The interviews tested me on a wide range of skills, from product design to analytical. I thought everyone was really smart, friendly, and passionate about their work and Google. I thought the culture seemed very open; all of my interviewers told me detailed descriptions about what they were working on when I asked and people in the hallways were willing to stop and point me in the right direction when I got lost.
