Associate Account Strategist Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Google.

Interview

The structure of the hiring process is exactly as it's described here and on the company's website.
It supposes to be 5 or 6 interviews.
Nothing really changed in comparison with all the other recent candidates.
The first interview is via phone with HR and it's made just to clarify your language stills, general adequacy and reaction on unexpected questions.
Then there is a sales pitch, made in English or your market language, depends on your luck. You can find tons of useful information here, also on youtube and in the information which google provide during the hiring process. Also there is a part of the interview about your behaviour in different possible situations which are focused on your way of acting in daily problems which could happen.
Next parts are about the position, your fit to the position according your experience.
Then unfortunately this time I didn't pass, so...

The whole process is interesting whereas the communication is very respectful, polite and friendly. HR-s always write you nice words before the interview wishing good luck. Do not hesitate and try to apply!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview/initial screening. Interviewer asked questions about my interests and life experiences to get an understanding of what type of person I am. Then asked question professional and competency based questions to see if I had the required knowledge about the AdWords platform. After about 45 minutes he told me that he would not be progressing me to the next stage but told me exactly what I needed to do to gain the experience and not to be deterred from applying in the future once I had the experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Google (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in October 2015.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Google (Tokyo (Japan)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, and about a week later I received an invitation to participate in a group discussion (interview) at their Tokyo office. About a week after the interview date, I received a really thoughtful email from the recruiter saying that I wasn't the best fit for this position, but to check back for other positions that might be more up my alley.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Google (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email from the recruiter to schedule interview, recruiter from Google called me and I though we willgo through CV screening and my experiences and background, instead she straight away was asking Adwords related questions and how would I go about this or that situation. That was pretty unexpected and frustrated me a bit, usually you have this kind of questions on the second interview with someone from the team. Anyway, recruiter scheduled second interview with team member and it included a sales pitch and questions like "tell me about the time when you improved a process". I did that interview okay, I wasnt really happy with it but I also had very little preparation time as preparation material and sales case was sent to me at 3pm when interview was set at 10:00am next day. I been told that usually they sent prep material 48 hours before the interview, so you have plenty of time to prepare.
    Second round interview was not really hard, but you need to prepare for it well and sound confident.

    Also what I didnt like is the fact that I been preparing for interview in English but then on the call supposed to be in my Native language. They have to let you know in advance as its not that easy to switch after you prepared all answers in english. So therefore I asked if we can proceed in English, and interviewer agreed.

    After that 2 days later I got a reply that they will not prpceed with my application. But anyway I got another offer to work for google but trough staffing agency, even though salary is way lower.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Google (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)).

    Interview

    The process went really quick at first, but then slowed down and has taken over 3 months already -- I do not have a final decision yet.

    After an employee referral, I was invited for a phone interview for a mock sales pitch. Following the call, I was emailed the next day and told that I will be proceeded to onsite interviews. These took a little while to schedule, but the process was nonetheless very smooth, so I was in Dublin early shortly after. The onsite interviews were straightforward with plenty of notetaking by the interviewers. I had a 45-minute interview with the Hiring Manager and two 30-minute interviews with account strategist who have already worked at Google for some time.

    After the onsite interviews, I was informed that I will have another interview over Hangouts with a regional manager in my native language. After the interview, I had to wait a few weeks for feedback, and then finally heard from HR that I will have to wait some more. Around two weeks later, I was connected with another person who handled the later stages of the hiring process, and had to answer some questions about myself and my current position via email. The person told me that I would receive the final decision no earlier than a month later, because there was an internal process during which my application would go over several committees in Dublin and in the U.S. - so I am still waiting :)
