    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through a friend referral. I've been contacted right away from a recruiter by email, who asked me to choose a date for the interview from the calendar and gave me all the basic informations and videos to prepare myself for the interview. Maybe because it's google or maybe because I prepared myself too much, when the interview arrived I was very nervous and I didn't do my best performance. Moreover she was very cold and seemed to be very bored, so this didn't help me at all. I was prepared for all the questions she did to me, even if she asked me one question that usually comes in a later stage (what would you do to improve the customer satisfaction rate from 70% in a quarter). I replied but she wasn't happy at all from my reply (and I was also kind of confused: why such a technical question if she is a recruiter and doesn't work directly in the department I'm applying for?). Actually I had the feeling that she knew from the beginning the outcome of the interview ;). In fact, she contacted me again a week later, telling me that I wasn't a fit for the company. When I asked for a feedback she told me that the issue was in my experiences and my cv. So why did she call me in the first place? Overall a very negative experience, but preparing myself for the interview taught me a lot of things (If now someone asks me "how many balls fit in a school bus", I laugh and answer without any stress).

    Interview

    3 interviews, that each took 45 min with 20 minutes break, in two different languages. Very focused on past experience and values. Sometimes interviewers repeat each other's questions too, and you have to be coherent. It's a good experience overall.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Google (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The process was split into 4 stages for me:
    1. Review of CV/matching to role.
    2. 40 minute telephone interview (mock sales pitch & competency based questions).
    3. 3 Face to Face interviews.
    4. Review of my feedback by a committee board.

    The whole process was extremely quick and at each stage I heard back within a day. The last stage took just over a week. The whole experience was exciting/positive and all my interviewers seemed genuinely interested in what I had to say!

    Application

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

    Interview

    From my experience the interview had 3 stages.
    1st stage: resume screening followed by an invitation for an orientation day at Google TLV
    2nd stage: professional phone interview to check your familiarity with the adwords system (all the necessary information for the interview was provided ahead of time).
    3rd stage: 3 interviews via google hangout; professional + behavioral

    Overall I would say that Google had the most friendly interview process I have ever came across as a BA graduate hunting for a job. Stress free, supper friendly, and all the necessary information is provided ahead of time so that you can do your best during the interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview had two types of questions; behavioral and professional. If you do your homework and look through your resume it will be clear what questions you will be asked etc.   2 Answers

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Google (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I had applied during May 2016 (Global Customer Experience, Associate Account Strategist) and heard back from the company a couple of weeks later for an interview. At the end of June, I have made my first interview, which was a phone interview that took for about 30 minutes. Right after my interview, I have been approach for the second round, which is a 3 interview process that come one after the other and it is done via Skype. I have been approached for sales this time, which I believe has happened because of the instant need to the team. These interviews were one with a peer, one with a senior manager and one with the potential line manager. I have received negative feedback for sales, but was referred to customer experience once again and had another interview with another line manager. Once this was also positive, I had one last interview with a peer from the team and have been approached to create a hiring summary for myself. I am still in this process, but as I learned, this is supposed to be the last step before you receive the final OK.

    Interview Questions

    • There were many experience based questions and skill based questions for which you need to know your CV by heart. There were also questions related to AdWords and situational questions where they give you receive a small case about a customer and how you would approach them.   1 Answer
