    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Google.

    Interview Details

    The process was pretty standard - 2 technical phone interviews. I waited 2 weeks for a reply. I am disappointed not because I was not made an offer but because of their attitude - I received an e-mail saying that I was going to be interviewed and 2 days later I received another saying that I was not going to be interviewed. When I asked for an explanation, they said it was because I was graduating the same year, which was clearly not the case as I indicated I was pursuing a Master's degree and I was only going to be available during the summer. I demanded to be redirected to someone in order to complain about this and they resumed my interview process. After each interview I was not given the opportunity to ask any questions, although the engineers were nice.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Google.

    Interview Details

    Completed an online application and had an initial phone interview. The phone interview was pretty standard - educational background, professional experience, how you deal with difficult situations etc. I was invited for an in-person interview with someone from HR, which was immediately followed by an interview/question time with a couple current employees. The interview questions were also standard, apart from a couple brain teasers thrown in.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    Uploaded the CV, heard back from a recruiter 2 months later. Two phone interviews, one right after the another, both taking 45 minutes. The first one was more of an algorithmic test with some really detailed questions, while the second one was almost entirely about testing, both on a specific example and in general (i.e. knowing stuff like unit testing, code coverage, and specifically JUnit since the guy worked Android Wear). After the questions on testing, I was asked to design a simple algorithm to reverse a specific part of a string and code it up.

    Coding was done via Google Docs, while Hangout videolinks were used for communication.
    I'm currently in the host matching phase (passed both interviews), so I don't really know whether I'm going to get an offer or not.

    2 phone interview. No technical question! just coding. I got so much disappointed, as I was expecting real questions.
    They only want to make sure that you produce the right result in the minimum amount of time. Some basic knowledge of data structures is required.

    • very detailed. They expect you to write a compilable program while you are on the phone!   Answer Question

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

    Interview Details

    Sent in my resume and received a reply a few days/weeks later for an interview. There were 2 phone calls of 60 minutes each. Both began by asking some basic questions about my resume and then we went into some technical questions. We ended by them asking me if I had any questions about the company/the internship I was applying for. I was contacted a few days later saying I would not be considered further.
