    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Durham, NC) in September 2015.

    Interview

    They move very quickly from to time of application to the interview. It was less than a week from my time of application to my interview. The technical interview was as expected and should follow their interview suggestions and preparation material. The day of the interview they were back to back 45 minute interviews and were spent almost entirely coding for the first round interviews.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    I studied for a month. I am only a sophomore: the questions I was asked were hard for my level of coding. It was quite disappointing. I had a phone interview with two google employees. The first phone call was nice but I was not able to finish coding. The second call was horrendous. As we were sharing the google doc, I saw roughly 10-15 people go on to look at what I was working on. In addition to that, the interviewer had me on speaker. The speaker sucked and I kept hearing my own voice echo back at me. So it was nearly impossible to hear my interviewer over my echo. Whenever I asked my interviewer to repeat what he said because I couldn't hear, he would answer back with an attitude. The interviewer was rude. The question was also difficult and I answered it inefficiently. It was awful and I wish that I never have such a bad interview experience in the future.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Google in May 2012.

    Interview

    This was for a Software Engineer Intern position. It was two 45 minutes long phone interviews. They give you time to ask any questions at the end of the interview. It's challenging to solve problems over the phone, if coding is necessary, they would send you a link to a google doc.

    The whole process is good. Mainly about coding, algorithm and communication. Interviewers are nice and patient.
