Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at Google.

Interview Details

I had two back to back phone interviews, scheduled well in advance. I cannot disclose the exact questions due to an NDA I signed. But it was a fun and challenging experience. I the first round the interviewer started with asking about my background and then a very simple problem in java. The second interviewer asked a simple question related to binary trees. He then moved on to a complex problem, which i did very badly. Partly because I was surprised that the interviewer had another question, had I known this I would have not spent more time in the first question.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Google in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume and got an email to schedule an interview within 3 weeks. Scheduled it as later as possible to be able to review my algothms, and my Java. The first interviewer was half sleepy half eating during the interview. He asked about my background (in order to finish his bagel while i was talking). Next he tried to explain me a question but he started from LCD display (why ?).

    Interview Questions
    • The actual question was: given an integer, its digits are stored in the array, the very last digit is the very last element of the array. Write a function that adds one to this integer. The LCD display discussion was totally misleading and inappropriate.   View Answer

    Interview Details

    This review is solely about the first telephone interview:
    The interview was essentially a fast-paced walkthrough of my CV. For each of my previous jobs that I had listed I was asked to describe the position in detail. I was often asked to give examples and specify, especially when I made strong statements such as "experience X was great because it gave me a better understanding of Y".
    Key takeaway: you better be prepared to back-up your personal sales pitch with memorized examples from your past experience.
    In the end I was asked about Google's revenue composition (it's almost entirely from AdWords) and what I knew about Google's other projects.

    Interview Questions
    • Definitely the clarifying questions! Fortunately I was well prepared, but you basically have zero time to search you memory. You need to have pre-composed answers, otherwise you'll come off as having oversold yourself in your CV.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Google in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview using Google doc, they ask me to solve a numerical problem using my own programming language. I can not remember exactly but is too detailed. They gave a set of graph point and edges and ask to process.

    Interview Questions
    • The question is too detail for the implementation. It is like undergrad question and need to be very well prepared instead of using solid professional experience and creative mind (mind opinion)   Answer Question
