    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beijing, Beijing (China)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beijing, Beijing (China)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Google.

    Interview Details

    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 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.
