    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    The phone interviews were easy and regular PMP questions . There was no technical rounds there
    The on-site interview had algorithms and database questions . Know your complexities and how to derive it.
    Remaining rounds were program management and make sure you know how to chart out a project plan. Keep a plan skeleton handy.
    My SWE round was quite tough .I am yet to hear back on the offer. Most likely I failed due to SWE round

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Google in August 2017.

    Interview

    Went through three rounds. First round the interviewee spoke too fast and most of the questions were neither business related nor technical. The technical round was completely irrelevant to the actual technological principles and more rather operations of sales.

    Interview Questions

    • Very vague sales/demand questions and veey basic iaas vs paas.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Google (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I applied through college recruiter and was invited to the Google local office for the interview. I had two interviews and the question was simple enough for a freshman candidate. The first interviewer was interactive and gave me feedbacks regarding the code. The second interviewer was reserved, he gave me questions and sat in the corner of the room and started doing his work. I give the overall experience negative only because of the second interviewer.

    Google BOLD Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Google in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in November and received an email in January about them starting to look through the applications. I then received an email in February telling me that I was matched with a team at Google that I would be an candidate for (biggest relief getting this email). The recruiter then is your direct contact and you can ask any questions. My recruiter was really helpful and very nice.Also, it does not take them long to respond to your emails. I really loved that. They will provide you with everything that you could possibly think of, and want you to succeed. I was then scheduled for two 30 minute back-to-back interviews for a Friday with two Google employees apart of the team they thought I would be great for. My advice for the interview would be to just be yourself, let your personality come through, and relax so you are able to hear the questions and answer them to the best of your ability. I was glad to hear of an offer that next Monday.

    Interview Questions

    • Signed NDA but they give you prep material. If you take advantage of it and really prepare, you will be fine.   1 Answer
