    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Google in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Put me through several interviews and never bothered to follow up with me afterwards. I still have no idea if I am still in consideration or not. As a recruiter, this sours me on the company.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Google in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter after I submitted an online application. Revised my resume, got submitted, and was asked on-site for an interview. I met with a Google employee via web-conference for about 30 minutes, then a face-to-face interview for another 30 minutes. Briefly talked about my resume and the description of the job, but the questions were primarily asked to see your thought process around problems. No brain-teasers, just questions focused on determining how I would go about problem solving. All in all, a very straightforward process and not too intimidating.

    Interview Questions
    • I cannot remember the specific phrasing, but it was a question trying to elicit my thought process of how to find very unique information. And, how do you define success? How do you define hard work?   Answer Question

    They offered me far more than I would have expected, so I simply accepted

    I interviewed through a recruiter - interviewed at Google in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    Long interview process, hiring based on GPA and job performance. Phone interviews can be 1-3. Onsite interview one round of 4 interviews, can be 30-45 min. Once hiring manager gives thumbs up recruiter has to complete a packet to justify hiring. Two formal review committes to respond to. All hiring is done through committee. Hiring manager has no recourse.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Google in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by a staffing agency for a 1 year contract role with Google as a recruiter. I had two face to face interviews with 2 people on each occasion. They asked a lot of problem solving questions with no correct answers, they wanted to see my process for solving the problem and arriving at the answer. They want to know which Google products you use, your familiarity with their technology. Overall they were not very friendly and this was not an easy interview.

    The process took 2 months - interviewed at Google in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    After a long process I was finally called in for a face to face interview which was interesting, thought provoking. I enjoyed the interview and was told that it went well and should hear from them within2 weeks.
    Got further positive feedback from the consultant who had originally set up the interview and about 3 wks later and email saying I was unsuccessful... I would have appreciated a bit of constructive feedback.
