Account Strategist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Google (New York, NY) in June 2016.

Interview

I applied through my university for a position at Google in Ireland. Nir Belsky from the Google office in Ireland contacted me and asked me to reapply online for the Adwords account strategist position. About a week after I had applied a recruiter contacted me via email with a few more questions such as "Why do you think you are suitable for this position" after I had responded there was an interview date set up. The questions we pretty straight forward. Personally it was my first interview and I was way too stressed. I would recommend learning Adwords very well, getting a good night's sleep and not let your nerves get to you!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    Interview

    Phone Screen, Followed by two phone interview back to back with someone in the position and a manager, followed by an on site interview at the Mountainview Office. Interviews were scheduled on Pacific Time and were back to back. The first seemed to be testing whether or not you fit the culture, while the second seemed more focused on determining if you had an aptitude for creative problem solving.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Google in March 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume through an employee referral. About a week later I got an email from a recruiter to set up a phone interview.

    There was a lot of background noise on the recruiter's end so it was difficult to hear the questions at times. I'm a very nervous interviewer and I wanted this job a lot so I was speaking very fast and my answers were quite scattered. Bad jokes were made, social awkwardness was displayed, an unfavorable image was conveyed, etc. The recruiter was very nice and kept saying "great answer" in a faux-enthusiastic tone, which in retrospect was probably a bad sign.

    Questions asked included:
    -Why Google?/tell me about yourself/why are you interested in this role?
    -What are the main benefits of AdWords?
    -How would you deal with an angry customer?

    My interview didn't go very well so instead of scheduling a follow-up interview the recruiter said notes from the interview would be shown to a hiring manager who would decide my employment fate. From what I've heard if the interview goes well and there is a good rapport between you and the interviewer they will schedule a follow-up right away.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter after sending resume to a current Google employee. We set up two interviews back to back. The first was a lot of resume stuff, as well as a few business questions, and the second was only 4 business scenario type questions. Overall the process went really well, the interviewers were great. Unfortunately didnt make it to the next round.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Google (Ann Arbor, MI) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Submitted resume through current employee initially. Less then a week later I had two phone interviews that were pretty basic interview questions about my resume and behavioral questions. I was contacted two days later about flying out for final interviews. The on site interviews were similar to the phone interviews with a few more situation based questions. Both on site interviews were good experiences.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Google (Ann Arbor, MI).

    Interview

    Submitted resume online and received an email that night asking for more info (transcripts, whether I'd be able to start by their preferred date.) Received a screening call the next day and then I guess I passed because I scheduled 2 phone interviews with them later that week.

    Interview went really well. I spoke to the SMB Sales Team Leader and then a Team Member. Questions seemed general, nothing extremely surprising.
