Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Google in January 2017.

Interview

I had several rounds of phone and Hangouts interviews which were 45 minutes each. Ideally the time is spent with 5-10 minutes for introductions, 30 minutes to answer a technical question, and the remaining time for follow-up questions. Questions aren't hard but require looking beyond the first solution and optimizing. I was disappointed in how little the interviewers asked me about myself or my projects. Maybe two of my interviews did so.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Google in January 2017.

    Interview

    Initially it was 2 technical 45 minute phone interviews. Need to code on a shared google doc.
    Then they called for an additional one. So 3 interviews in total. It took around a 3 weeks.

    I wouldn't call it a difficult interview. The questions were very straightforward. No googliness or puzzles. Basic data structures and algorithm, especially trees. 2 of my rounds were on trees. If you are done with CTCI, you should be able to ease it. Get your data structures strong, really strong . Also, get comfortable coding. This is very vital, as interview preps can stress you out and you can blank out even on the basics. So practice a lot.

    Interview

    Nice recruiter he helps me a lot for the process. When I have trouble he will try to give me hint. In the end he also asks me a bonus question. Of course it is not so hard. But for me the first interview is not as easy as the second one.
