Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in January 2017.

Interview

The interviewer told me the process was 1)phone screen with her, phone interview with a hiring manager/team member, possibly a second interview with a manager/team member, in office interview with a few different people. I thought my interview with her went really well, I had the experience and thought I would get a call back for a second interview. I followed up with her at the end of the week and she said they found other candidates that were a better fit. She was super nice about it.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The process took a little over three weeks. It took almost two weeks before I was contacted to set up a phone screening. It took another couple days to confirm the onsite interview with 3 managers, and another week to get the offer. Overall it was a great experience, managers were friendly and inquisitive. I felt welcomed but I did feel a little intimated since this is GOOGLE.

    Interview

    Very good recruiter - everything moved quickly very fast. I had a pleasant experience and would happily apply again once I find the right role. I think they were looking for someone with direct account manager experience so in retrospect you really have to know your skill set well!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Google in November 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out after applying online. A couple phone interviews, followed by in-person interviews. Great mix of questions from behavioral to case based. Google is looking for someone who can adapt quickly in ambiguous situations and a keen business sense. After the interviews, my application was passed onto the hiring committee. They took a week to get back to me with a very competitive offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Google (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Very tough questions, seemed less interested in you and your skills and more on your answers. They asked questions not even related to the position, all looking for one specific answer in mind. If you didn't answer to their expectations, you knew instantly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Google (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Sent in resume various times but hadn't heard back from a recruiter till I was referred. I sent in resume and cover letter and within 10 days had an initial phone call.

    No crazy out of the blue questions asked- more just seeing if I could answer questions articulately.

    Next step they flew me to the office to interview- 3 interviews in 2 hours. Most questions were expected and relevant to the job - but if you're applying to the ads team make sure you do obviously some background research on the ads ecosystem.

    Lastly, I heard back from them about 2 weeks later that I received the role, and then had 3 start dates to choose from.
