    The first interview is HR. Just some ordinary questions. I am still waiting for the onsite interview. Will post here once I get response for this position. I guess there will be a line manger interview me and then same position colleagues. But not sure the community review.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Google.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Google in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    This is the best interview I have ever met.
    The recruiter is very nice. We began the initial communications in September 2013. And he soon made a telephone interview for me. After that I got the onsite interview. The 1st and 2nd round were on the same day.
    Both of the interviewers came from US. The first one is Chinese, and the second is American, as this round included an English language test.
    The 3rd round interview was after about two weeks.
    After that was the HC review and offer review. Because I did't prepare the English Transcript at that time, it took about three weeks until the offer came to me.

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Google in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    My intern conversion interview, two rounds.
    First Round: talk my intern project about 5 minutes. Then a hard algorithm problem. Cost all the rest time.
    Second Round: Since the hard problem has already been asked, the interview is much more casual. Only a simple program problem and the most time are talking my project and the interviewer's work.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Google.

    Interview Details

    A four round onsite interview in China. Mostly are algorithm question except the last round. The last round had only one question(Impl a LRU cache, you can google it, it seems that is a recycled question)

    Interview Questions
    • The algorithm question contain DP, data structure, BFS. It is not hard. But I haven't make any prepareation so I had a bad performance in the last round. That is the reason I think why I didn't get an offer.   Answer Question
