Legal Assistant Interview

Difficult Interview

Application

The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Google.

Interview

I was contacted by a Recruiter a month after submitting my resume. I was very excited to have an interview, and then the Recruiter strung me along for a good 2 weeks and then emailed me that they had moved on in the process. Poor form, Google, poor form. If you do not intend to interview candidates, it's probably best to not have them submit a Google form with interview times. Also, the "hiring committee" made the decision, and just used the Recruiter as a messenger. Sucks to be the Recruiter.

    Application

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

    Interview

    15 minute phone interview with HR followed by a 30 minute phone interview with a legal assistant at Google. Pretty standard 15 minute phone screen where they ask why you applied and why you'd fit in, what your skill sets are, etc.

    30 minute phone interview asked similar questions followed by some hypothetical "what ifs"

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    2 interviews. First one was about 30 minutes long, and second one was 30 minutes long. Both with managers of the department. Basic questions about why I want to work there, about my background and experience. Also given some hypotheticals about the job and how I would handle certain situations. Interviewers were very nice and cordial.

    Interview

    asked about resume during the pre phone screening
    had three interviews after that: one group interview, one on-site interview and follow up phone interview.
    I think the hardest questions were those situational type questions where there is no right answer. The one that threw me off was: what do you like to do in your free time...that you haven't told us and is not in your resume/cover letter.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone screen that was pretty standard. Recruiter asked general questions about my experience while in college and why I was interested in the position. Then a second round general interview that asked more analytical questions. A week later I had an on-site one.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA).

    Interview

    I interviewed with three different people. It seemed a little uncoordinated considering they asked similar questions if not the same. The worst part is I could't tell how I did. The three people seemed very animated, however I was extremely nervous.

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Contacted by Recruiter, small interview then language test a week later. The recruiter was helpful. Sent in the test, then had another interview from a team member 2 weeks later, on-site two weeks after that. Did not feel like a professional office; team manager looked to be no older than 20. Many irrelevant questions to the job, nothing asked about past experience or particular skills relating to it, nothing asked about privacy issues or your understanding of the job, or what skills you have relating to it. Horrible.

    This job required a certain foreign language that I speak and write very well. During the interview, people who spoke that language were present but did not talk to me using that language at all. I was given a very technical translation piece with some industry specific words (such as names of legislation and Bills) that are difficult to translate correctly unless you have seen the name directly. The test was hand written and not even on a computer. I have no direct translation experience, so I just put the translation in my own words. No one thought to test me verbally even though more than one person spoke that language. Again, horrible.

    Other than that, after the on-site, no feedback was given. How was the test? Any advice to improve? Took about two months in total. Overall it was not worth it; I took another offer from a company before I even heard back, as I have bills to pay.
