    Vice President Project Management Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Good interview process. Clear questions and explored relevant experience very well. They do ask a lot of personality based questions and seem to want to measure how you would handle conflict and interdepartmental issues. I found them to be friendly, professional and interesting. If you've never interviewed with a large company before you could find it daunting but if you're experienced you'll probably find it a very enjoyable experience and engaging.

    Interview

    Interview was for a temp position through Adecco. It was an hour long with three different people, one after the other. Since it was a temp position, the interview process was much shorter (one phone screen, one in-person interview. I submitted my resume, had the phone screen the next day, and had the in-person interview the day immediately following. The job offer came the following week with a start date for the week after.

    3D Artist Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    First, you're contacted by a HR person, and they check your availability. Then they schedule an interview with a second person. This person seems to be sort of an intermediate HR person with some technical knowledge. For this first interview, there's a shared Google doc where they will test you for any technical skills (specifically programming) to ensure that you know how to do what you said you could. After that, presuming that you don't blow it, they schedule an interview with the program manager of that department. Since this job had management aspects, I was mostly grilled on my management experience.

    Enterprise Demand Management Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I received an email from a recruiter initially and we set up a phone call time. On the day of the phone interview a woman (not the recruiter) called me ten minutes after the schedule time which I thought was a little rude because at the end of the interview she said she had to rush off to a meeting. Given the interview was VERY technical and I should have prepared a lot more so "rushing off to a meeting" might have been a lie.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Was about a month long process. Went through 4 phone screens before being flown out to Mountain View for on-site interviews. Met with 4 people in person, and had seemingly positive interviews with each. About two weeks later I got the word that they were going in another direction. I tried to push for some feedback, but they said it was against their policy to share. Really curious about what happened.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Google (Boston, MA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was unable to fly out so I was interviewed several times via phone. We went through the resume and they asked me several questions about my interests in the Google sector that was interviewing me, etc. They also asked me to name a couple of their most recent products and to give them feedback on how it should improve moving forward, etc. Other than that, there were parts that were more analogous to a consulting style case interview.
