    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Google.

    Interview

    After applying through the Google Jobs website, I was reached out to by a member of their People Operations team. I had a short telephone interview with one of the recruiters, then 2 telephone interviews with members of the team I would be joining, and then an offer. The whole process was very well organised and swift.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Google (London, England (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was fairly fast and transparent, I was given feedback in the end. Overall would recommend, the best interview experience I've ever had. Seems like the only company out there that respects prospective hires and their time. BUT was rejected because of only one interviewer that gave inadequate review, while others were very positive about hiring.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Google in February 2015.

    Interview

    The recruiter was very kind, and the timing less than I forecasted. She asked me about my background and explain me the position and the Google process to hire. The recruiter told me about the possibility to pass that interview and she describe me the possible next process - one interview with the team and one face to face.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.
