    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hyderābād (India)
    Anonymous Employee in Hyderābād (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ weeksinterviewed at Google in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    The process went on for about 50 days or so. After the initial call from the recruiter, i got around 15 days to prepare for the first round, aka the screening. This was conducted over a phone call and lasted for a little more than an hour. Basic questions, nothing too hard, the key was to demonstrate the thought behind the solution and find if multiple solutions exist and not just the end result.
    4 days later, i got a call from the recruiter who informed me that i have been shortlisted for an onsite interview at the Google office.
    I got around 20 days this time around to prepare.
    Had 4 rounds of interviews at the office, mostly on data structures and their usage. The key thing again was to demonstrate your ability to arrive at a solution, rather than directly solve it.
    I do not think the questions were very difficult, but in some sense my nervousness got the better of me and even though i had solved a lot of similar questions during my preparation, i jumped to conclusions on the answer and delivered incomplete answers.
    Overall, my experience with the entire hiring process right from the time of the first call till the end was very good. I am happy that i got the opportunity to review algorithms and solve many problems during the preparations. It is sad that i did not get through, but i look forward to applying again to Google.
    As for the interactions with the employees at Google, they were very helpful during the interviews or otherwise.

    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.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyderābād (India)
    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 :)

    Interview Questions
    • What they would like to see is if you can think out-of-the-box. Come up with your own ideas and contribute in a great way to the company.   Answer Question
    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.
