Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in October 2017.

Interview

3 rounds of interviews: phone screen, onsite, then final VP interview -- covered all types of questions and was a pretty rigorous process. Took about 1.5 weeks to hear back after I applied, and 6 weeks to finish the whole process to offer stage.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Google (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    It took about 1 month, from first contact to offer. Everyone was extremely nice and positive. Interviews were straightforward but not trivial. It is essential to prepare, and "Cracking the PM Interview" is definitely a great way to go.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Google in September 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiting process went very quickly. I was contacted to schedule an interview time, and the interview is about one week and a half after. The result came in about 5 days.
    There are a total of two interviews, each was about 45 minutes. The first went more with a typical PM interview way, while the second was more technical (although there's no algorithm questions).
    Considering the interview itself, the recruiters asked me about product design, the typical estimation question, and the metrics I would use in testing a product.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Google in September 2017.

    Interview

    Talked with a software dev and an APM, was asked a total of 4 questions through the course of two 45 minute phone call interviews. Technical questions were tough but manageable. APM questions were wildly abstract and not at all like anything I had been told to prepare

    Interview

    I applied online and got a phone interview. And for around three months it was a limbo of getting emails that they are going to update me without a definitive answer, and only when they were done with all the potential candidates they let me know.

    Interview

    It was a pretty easy interview process. Recruiter was very helpful with her overall expectations and the interviewers are very helpful. Biggest takeaway is to ask as many questions as possible to clear up any doubts that may persist.

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

    Interview

    Spoke with a representative at a university event who recommended the APM internship program. Was accepted for a first round interview. Interview was in the form of a 45 minute phone call, interviewer came in 15 minutes late. I was asked to talk about my resume and then was given 3 product design/analysis questions. Through the design questions, the interviewer was helpful in sharing when I gave a good answer or asked a good questions, and when he didn’t like my response he gave hints in the direction he was looking for. Overall I was able to answer 2 questions well but was unsatisfied by my last answer. A week after my interview I was notified that I was not accepted for the next round. Overall the process was streamlined and the interviewer was very helpful, so I look forward to applying for full time next year!

    Interview

    Slow, detached.
    Process took over 2 months.
    Recruiter was not very helpful and communicative.
    Talked to another PM and APM before hand, they were eager about their positions so I looked into the APM Program.
