    Account Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Google (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I had one phone interview with a recruiter (30 mins), one phone interview with a team member (50 mins), 3 hangouts interviews (45-60 mins) with a team member, with the hiring manager and a member of another team. 3 hangouts interviews were going to be one after another on the same day. Luckily, one of my interviewers had to reschedule it to two days earlier. The two other happened consecutively with 15-20 mins break. The recruiter updated me very often and called me in between the stages to explain me the next process. Scheduling the interviews went very smoothly. Interview process took approx 1 month. After having positive feedbacks from all the interviews, my business case was formed and sent to European Hiring Committee and then to Global Hiring Committee. It took 2 weeks in total to have the final answer from the committees.

    Most of the interview questions (maybe 60- 70%) focused on my Google Adwords and Digital Advertising knowledge. I had very few questions about my background except the call with the recruiter and hangouts call with the person from another team. There are lots of resources to study on Google Adwords Help Center and Google Analytics Academy that helped me a lot to succeed. The position was for Turkish Market, so the interviews with team members and the hiring manager were in Turkish and the rest was in English.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Google in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied onilne for a position far from where I am currently and the recruiter failed to phone screen me several times at the very moment I contacted her at the scheduled time. I would say the whole experience is fine but the beginning is definitely a disaster. I woke up early and stayed up late in the middle the night to talk to a recruiter but only left with anger and disappointment. After this annoying phone screen ends, I was interviewed with three Googlers, who are my future managers and ()a senior analysts. I didn't pass the fourth interview (phone screen included).

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    The recruiter unfortunately did not know much about the role he was recruiting for. I applied for the Account Strategist Ad Sales position, took 3 weeks for him to reply to schedule. Finally get on the call and after covering my 10 years experience in ad sales - He says "we are looking for someone with ad sales experience". (???). Very strange. Then he proceeded to contradict the job description posted online. I asked him to elaborate since the website description said otherwise and he couldn't. It was so weird. It was a poor experience with Google, for sure. Company seems unorganized from a recruiting standpoint.

    Account Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Google (Sydney (Australia)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Very disjointed and not what I expected to experience from such a large enterprise such as Google. It was like they hadn't even reviewed the information that I'd submitted online. I had provided a detailed CV and covering letter and based on the screening questions it seemed like they had not bothered to read any of it.

    Account Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ann Arbor, MI
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Google (Ann Arbor, MI) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was emailed by a recruiter to set up a phone interview/screening. The recruiter explained to me about the role briefly and outlined what to expect from the interview process, she then emailed me resources and tools to prepare myself for the questions I might be asked.

    I was then advanced on to an actual phone interview with their Staffing Services Associate who I spoke with regarding my work experience and just told her about myself.

    From there I was asked to come into the Google office to interview in person. I met with two of the (Mid-Market Sales / Marketing) Managers who would be directly involved with me should I get the position. I also had a Google Hangout video interview with the Head of Mid-Market Manager from the New York office as my third in office interview. The questions were right in line with what the recruiter said they'd be, so I gave them the best answers I could with the amount of research I was about to complete in the few days I had while still working my full time job.

    I will say that my experience is not the norm, my entire interview process from speaking with a recruiter to phone interview and in-person interviews were all conducted within 4 days. I think most commonly the hiring process take a couple of months, so I was quite surprised at how fast it all happened.

    The experience was exhilarating, I was staying up late nights to study the materials. It was almost like college but I was studying things I was genuinely interested in and starting to build a passion for. Every single google employee I interacted with was extremely kind and polite and made me feel comfortable to speak freely. While it was an interview for a job I wanted more than any I've ever applied for, I felt less nervous than any I have been too.

    From my in person interview, I was then asked to provide references along with answers to a few other questions. I was being reviewed by the hiring committee and should I be selected from there my references would be contacted.

    It was just a few short days later that I was contacted by my initial recruiter to let me know that I was not selected for the role. As anyone who makes it that far into the interview process, I was quite heart broken. I felt like the interviews all went really well, so I was left only to assume that there was someone slightly better qualified as Google is not permitted to tell you why they did not select you. I think that is the only frustration I had, as I just wish I knew what I could do to improve to get it right next time, or if I wasn't selected for something that I can't change?

    Since this experience I have not given up, I have continued to apply for different openings and will continue to apply until I become a "Googler"!

    If you're trying to get in, don't give up! Google is great, and therefore gets thousands of applicants for their openings. Just be persistent and continue to stay up to date with what's happening within their company. There are youtube channels that will give you all sorts of information - I have found them to be a great learning tool!
