    Interview

    They have pretty much standardized the process. The process did not deviate from what others have said -- recruiting screening, a technical phone screening, and then a half day onsite.

    Interview

    Very structured. In most companies, something to remember is that they go deep, during the interview, into the projects you mention in your CV. So, technical questions are asked as you describe one of your projects

    The process is very well put together. They make sure to analyze you in depth. It starts with a phone screening and goes into many more interviews depending on how much data they can gather about you.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    As you'd imagine it's really hard to get a job here so it was a long process, including an initial screening all the way through a couple long-winded interview rounds and it was a little more dragged out than it should have been. I did enjoy the interview although it ultimately did not go positively.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen went well, followed by technical phone screen. Technical phone screen involved discussion of past work/research experience, followed by coding portion. Discussions went well. Coding problem was actually quite easy, but time got the best of me and I ended up giving a working but less than elegant solution. Received feedback in days, saying there were many positives ended up passing on me.
