    Content Editing Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    This interview was tough, unlike my Microsoft interviews, I only got through 1 question per interviewer. The exception was one interview where I got through 2. When they say it's all about your thought process and not the answer, they really mean it. During one interview we walked through the process of solving the question together, then the last 5 minutes I programmed the solution. I actually thought it was over but a few days later, the recruiter submitted a package to the hiring committee to hire me.I really enjoyed the interview, if you get the chance to interview study graph theory.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Google (Beijing, Beijing (China)).

    Interview

    I interviewed in China. The interview was really pleasant. The questions were not too hard. But I have to say, the office in Beijing is really small, sometimes even without windows, giving out most of the pressure to interviewees. To be fair, the questions were not hard. All of them were basic ones. Just have be prepared to write some code. It was not hard at all.

    Interview Questions

    • They would pressure you to make sure that all corner cases were considered. And furthermore, they even picked about uppercase keywords and stuff...   Answer Question

    Interview

    I got referenced and conducted 2 round phone interviews. Then get an onsite view for 4 rounds. People there are very nice and the work environment is pretty impressive. The entire interview process is very good. The interviewer always ask about how to improve and how to estimate the complexity of the algorithm.

Then, I get the opportunity of phone interview. In the phone interview, a people ask me some questions about my resume only 5 minutes and then give me a question. I solved this question and 15 minutes left. However, he didn't ask me another question and just ask me to ask him question. Finally, I fail this phone interview.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    A recruiter contact me, and she schedule two phone interviews in weeks later. It tooks me more than a week for the interview response. First interview is scheduled on 10:45, and the second interview is scheduled on 11:45. The first interviewer is an American girl, she just asked me some easy algorithms questions. About 30 minutes we run out of those problems, then we just talk about some projects on my resume. The second interviewer is late for the interview. She was from HongKong, and brought some more open mind problems.

    Interview

    I applied online and was then contacted by recruiter for two technical phone interviews. The questions asked were relatively easy since it was the program for sophomores, but I was too nervous so I didn't get into the program.
    The questions are for string manipulations and I think some technical interview preparation book would help.
