I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Google in December 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 Question – 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
Negotiation Details – No negotiation.
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Google in June 2012.
Interview Details – Asked questions about how to check IP, debug a connection, how traceroute works, how would I increase a capacity on a working server.
Interview Question – How does exactly Traceroute works? View Answer
