    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Went it after applying online. Took about one week for someone to reply back for an interview. Went to their mountain view office and was warmly greeted. The interview itself lasted about 30 minutes. After waiting a week, I unfortunately did not get the position. The pleasant process was very nice.

    Interview

    The scheduling of the interview went quite smoothly, and the coordinators had prompt replies. However, during the phone interview the phone connection was so bad that I could barely hear what the interviewer was saying and I could hear my echo clearly with a 2 second delay. That really distracted me from performing my best, however, after emailing them, they said they wouldn't do another interview but would take that into account while evaluating me.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a very hypothetical question that required a wide range of knowledge and estimations.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    I did a brief screening with HR and the lady was lovely. I was then set up with a phone interview with someone in the marketing department. This experience was horrible. For a company that claims to be innovative and creative, my questions were asked off a list and the interviewer made no effort to make me think otherwise. He seemed bored and disinterested.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Google (Stanford, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online after going to an informational session at my college campus. I was asked to do a brief (30 min) interview at my university. Soon after, I was contacted and asked to do a series of interviews at the Google campus. At the Google campus, I had three 45 min interviews with three different people followed by lunch with a Google employee. The Google employee honestly didn't seem excited by what he was doing and didn't seem to want to be having lunch with me.
