    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Google in January 2016.

    Interview

    Some of the interviewers were friendlier than others. The questions related to string processing and basic data structures. Be sure to explain your thought process as you go, and if you have extra time, try to improve and/or debug your code. It took them a while to get back and I had to follow up. Recruiters were pretty courteous, though.

    Interview

    Three back to back phone interviews. One interviewer messed up the schedule and called me one day earlier... In general it was okay, interviewers were really helpful, but one of them was nit-picking.

    Interview

    It was a great experience, included two different phone interview. Different engineers from google attended to the phone interview, from various projects. Interviews started with simple behaviourally questions, laters Google Docs were used for the technical questions. Because of the NDA, I can not disclose any more of the interview process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    I had two back to back phone interviews, scheduled well in advance. I cannot disclose the exact questions due to an NDA I signed. But it was a fun and challenging experience. I the first round the interviewer started with asking about my background and then a very simple problem in java. The second interviewer asked a simple question related to binary trees. He then moved on to a complex problem, which i did very badly. Partly because I was surprised that the interviewer had another question, had I known this I would have not spent more time in the first question.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Submitted resume and got an email to schedule an interview within 3 weeks. Scheduled it as later as possible to be able to review my algothms, and my Java. The first interviewer was half sleepy half eating during the interview. He asked about my background (in order to finish his bagel while i was talking). Next he tried to explain me a question but he started from LCD display (why ?).

    Interview Questions

    • The actual question was: given an integer, its digits are stored in the array, the very last digit is the very last element of the array. Write a function that adds one to this integer. The LCD display discussion was totally misleading and inappropriate.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Google (Bogotá, Bogota (Colombia)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Google has a personal approach and want to know the candidate really well. The interviews are informal and I felt very relaxed. There is no tricky questions but mostly some prepositions of real situations so that they know how you could handle it. Good to know the google products and culture before interviewing.

    2 45-minute interviews with technical questions, they didn't specify any specific role or ask any questions about me or what I'm looking for. The people were nice and answered any questions I had and their decision was fast
