    The process took 5 days - interviewed at Google in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    I met with the hiring manager, a nice guy. We discussed programming and my history as a programmer, including my capabilities. It was pleasant and cordial and I thought I would get the position. There are many great programmers out there so you can imagine how competitive it is to get a spot at google. I went through two interviews and I received a call the next week and was informed I wasn't getting the position

    The process took a day - interviewed at Google in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    I first passed a phone screen, asking various general questions about myself, where I wanted to go, why I wanted to work for Google, etc. Then I had 3 separate technical phone interviews, that lasted about an hour each. They asked me computer science questions, that went from a high level design, down to the specific implementation of an algorithm. Some were questions that were very conceptual and algorithmic, and some were very focused on concrete design and coding ability.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you implement an MS Paint clone? What objects and methods would you need, how would they draw on the canvas, and what UI elements would be necessary?   Answer Question
