Difficult Interview

Application

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.

    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 through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Google (Berkeley, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Google came to my university and I gave the recruiters my resume, then they emailed me and asked me to come in for an interview. It was a quick one with a Senior Product Manager who seemed to like me, and took notes while I wrote on the board.

    Interview

    Very pleasant. The Interviewer ask many questions about product management and process management. Also some wired questions about anything. So the process is pleasant but the result is bad.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, but because I didn't go through a referral and wasn't on campus for the career fair I went through the normal pool. Received the interview mid November. About two weeks later I got a call that they wouldn't be moving forward because the small class of 45 (from a couple thousand applicants) was already full.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Started with a recruiter contacting me from a previous application. Initial phone screen interview was 2 questions - one estimation and one product driven.

    Next was 4 onsite interviews, 3 in the morning, 1 after lunch. Those questions were product, estimation, and vision for Google.

    After that was a writing assessment, which was sent out 2 weeks after the above. They gave me 3 days to finish it, but they say try not to spend more than 2 hours on it.

    Finally I had an interview with Brian Rakowski, the head of the APM program. That was some resume questions and a product question. Very laid back interview, not intimidating.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Google in October 2016.

    Interview

    Started with a call with the recruiter then went on to an interview with a PM - this was mainly behavioural and design questions. They seemed to be looking for a specific framework to your response which I was not aware of at the time - it is only after doing more courses in HCI and design thinking that I realized that my answer wasn't structured the way they wouold've desired.
