    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    2 interviews. First one was about 30 minutes long, and second one was 30 minutes long. Both with managers of the department. Basic questions about why I want to work there, about my background and experience. Also given some hypotheticals about the job and how I would handle certain situations. Interviewers were very nice and cordial.

    Interview

    asked about resume during the pre phone screening
    had three interviews after that: one group interview, one on-site interview and follow up phone interview.
    I think the hardest questions were those situational type questions where there is no right answer. The one that threw me off was: what do you like to do in your free time...that you haven't told us and is not in your resume/cover letter.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA).

    Interview

    I interviewed with three different people. It seemed a little uncoordinated considering they asked similar questions if not the same. The worst part is I could't tell how I did. The three people seemed very animated, however I was extremely nervous.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Google in October 2013.

    Interview

    Got an email to set up an initial phone screen. Phone screen went really well, the woman was casual and pleasant, she asked me pretty routine questions: What have i been doing since i graduated? Tell about myself a bit. Why google? Etc. I think the only mildly difficult question in this round was: What have you seen in the news lately related to Google legality?

    Got through phone screen and scheduled a second round interview for a weekish later. Second round was tough and where i failed. They asked me three questions one of which i cant remember. She prefaced them with, "i'm going to ask you three questions and for each one i want you to clarify what needs to be better defined/figured out in order to solve the question, list out some recommendations for a solution and finally provide a recommendation and why.

    The questions were:

    A) Tell me about a time you had to go ahead on a project but you were missing integral data?

    B) If a celebrity were to sue google for a pornographic/indecent photo that was found online how would you precede?

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    interviewed at Google in June 2013.

    Interview

    Applied through an employee referral. The process took ~4 weeks from submitting a resume to going through two rounds of interviews. The recruiter on the phone was nice and the interview was very standard; the second phone interview was more challenging (although they prepare you as best as possible for it) and while the people on the other side were nice, they certainly didn't seem engaged - probably because they were taking notes on what I was saying.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Google.

    Interview

    The initial phone call going over the resume. A phone call about a week later for an interview, talking about the traditional interview questions such as a time you had to do something repetitively, how you kept it interesting. During the final interview, do your RESEARCH! Know everything about the position you are applying for and the department it is in. Even know the names of the people in charge and their position titles.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Google.

    Interview

    I passed the phone screening, first interviews over hangout and had an onsite interview. Everyone was really friendly. The questions were very similar at each interview which could be frustrating at times. The only negative aspect other than not getting the job, was that I do not believe I was given enough feedback.

    Interview Questions

    • I found it difficult to answer questions about my biggest weakness. This was more to do with my experience than anything else.   Answer Question
