    Interview Details

    very lengthy and sometimes they can forget to keep you in loop. Its also probably because it is so sought after. However, the number of interviews give you the feeling that they ensure they are right about who they hire.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyderābād (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Google.

    Interview Details

    I went through a recruitment consultant where in I had to take an aptitude test. You are shortlisted for the interview if you clear the test. It's then that you have to go through the interview process at Google. I had 3 rounds of interviews on different days. Usually you are asked the same question in different ways. The key is to stick to your answer each time you are asked the same question and not change the answers with every interviewer. It took around a month for me to get a confirmation about my selection. You are asked briefly about the job you are applying for (some basic knowledge about the company and its products), some situational questions and how would you handle them.

    It's great working here. It's a very laid back atmosphere. The company believes that if you look after the employees well, they will look after the company!. Great perks great place to work :)

    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate as I was eager to get the job. I wasn't to happy with the HR process though as it was a little unclear. But the best part is the perks and the bonus that you get once you accept the offer. So no regrets.

    Product Quality Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyderābād (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyderābād (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Google in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was initially sourced by a Google recruiter via LinkedIn. However, since I knew Google places a lot more importance on employee referral, I got my resume referred a college senior working at the same team.

    I was immediately contacted by another recruiter after submission of resume and was asked for convenient time slots. First interview was telephonic with the HR and lasted about 25 mins. Within a few hours, I received an invitation for another round of telephonic interview with someone from Product Quality Operations team. This interview (~35-40 mins) was more detailed and included discussions about my current role, projects and quite a lot about my knowledge of various Google products and scenario based questions. It followed by two more back to back video conference interviews via Google+ Hangout, each of which lasted for around an hour. These rounds were also similar but went more into detail. Quite a few questions were common across interviews. Worth noting is I was never asked about my coding skills since the job role does not require any hardcore coding. The formats of all the interviews were very conversation-like and people with passion for the job would really enjoy it like I did.

    Final round was the Director of the team in India and it was short and brief. It hardly lasted for about 20 mins. I suppose this round was more about just verification or final overview of the candidate.

    I was told by my recruiter that each interviewer gives a rating along with their detailed opinion of the candidate. In the end, all interviewers take a final collective decision. I was informed within 2 days of my final interview that Google India wants to extend an offer to me, pending confirmation from their US office. From what I gathered from my personal research, each job offer is reviewed by one of their top executives before making a final offer. Once that decision is made, the compensation committee decides the compensation. This waiting period was really long for me at it took nearly 4 weeks for them to make the final offer after India office had made their decision.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Google has their own Compensation Committee which looks at the candidate's current salary, salary of its own employees in the present role, and many other factors to arrive at a competitive figure. There's almost no scope for negotiation. I was offered the same base salary. However, the bonus and stocks added up to a significant increase, not to mention the usual Google perks.
