Interview

It's a long, gruelling process, but there's a reason for every step - once you're in they really take care of you!

Recommendations
- make sure you're prepared, have some industry knowledge, specific knowledge for the role, and practise different styles of questions
- be yourself, and show how you specifically are unique (it also makes you more relaxed when you don't have to pretend!)
- stay upbeat no matter what they throw at you

Enjoy and good luck!

    Account Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Google (London, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process is quite straightforward but usually depends on the availability of the role and their current headcount. I applied via referral. It took 12 days for them to get back and approve my application. They asked to fill in the short form with the motivational questions: why google. your proud achievement. your availability. etc After they review it, you get an HR confirmation interview that's focused on your general understanding of the role. Why Google? what google does, What account strategist does, what main products do we have, why this role..nothing unexpected. The second stage consists of three interviews with google team members. So far I've done two of them (waiting for another one). The first one is a sales pitch - you're given a particular client and you have to talk over their challenges ( demand decline, slow growth) and suggest adwords solutions. My advice is to learn more about adwords and read success stories and forums so you can identify easily what can go wrong. Also ask follow up questions e.g : What's the traffic been like ? what's the company's pas performance? You will show your kwledge of the clients relationships. The second interview is very role focused and based on understanding of you daily activities. Still waiting for their reply. Hope it helps. They are friendly and open people so it's important for them to see your honesty. Don;t make up things. It's better admit that you're unsure than to lie.

    Account Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Background and ability review. Reasonable questions. Clearly explained the role. Since it's contractor role so the interview process is casual and shorter than the average interview time for Full time staff. Not challenging as expected.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Google (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First step was a phone-screen where I had to account for my experience and motivation to work for Google. Some role-related questions. Second step was another phone-interview but this time with an account manager. Many tricky questions about mobile advertising and questions related to the future prospects of the industry as a whole. Third step was three interviews onsite. Fourth step a Hangout. Best advice is to prepare well.
