Marketing Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in January 2017.

Interview

Several rounds of phone interviews with different levels of management. While everybody was very helpful, I often felt like I was going in circles having the same conversation over and over. The entire process took over a month and a half which was far too long.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Google (New York, NY).

    Interview

    A series of in-person and virtual interviews, mostly 30-45 minutes each. I spoke with a recruiter and about 5-7 other people. The people I spoke with came from the team I was applying for as well as other sales and marketing teams in the organization. Overall it was a very fun and enjoyable experience, even though I ultimately did not receive an offer for the position.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online and heard back within a few days from a recruiter. Initial HR phone screening lasted about 20mins. Had a follow up 45 min phone conversation with someone from the team and then went on-site to meet with the hiring manager for another 45 mins. Everyone I spoke to was incredibly nice and positive. Ultimately, I was told the team was going through re-org and that they would not have any updates for several weeks. I was informed at the beginning of the process by HR that it would take about 4-6 weeks, however be prepared to take longer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Google (Austin, TX) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Ridiculous. Too much emphasis on school/GPA and not as much on actual experience and aptitude. They want to make sure you are well in-tune with all Google products, so be very knowledgeable.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Google (Boston, MA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I pursued Google opportunities through veteran recruiting at a top 3 MBA school in the Northeast. Of the 20 companies I have interacted with during recruiting, Google was easily the most UNPROFESSIONAL.
    -Made appointments and commitments that were not kept. No-shows for meetings leaves a terrible impression.
    -Left several messages as requested but without response. Occasionally I would get a voicemail with an excuse and a new appointment time, which veteran MBA recruiter would then miss.
    -Team sent a representative as a last-minute fill-in for the main veteran recruiter who didn't know what positions were available. Time consuming planning, not helpful.
    -Recruiter invited me to campus. I left messages to coordinate, traveled cross country, heard nothing back, then got a voicemail a few days after I came back home. Offensively bad organization. Check your calendar buddy. And your messages. ANY of them.
    -I did get a rejection email from Google months later for a position I'd never heard of or had applied . I sent that one around other HR contacts I had who were concerned but had no explanations.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Tel Aviv-Yafo (Israel)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    A friend who works in Google forwarded my CV and I was called for an onsite interview with one of the marketing managers.
    No prior HR interview took place.
    When I arrived the interviewer told me that this is a very bad timing for an interview and that she's very busy with a new campaign that was launched that day.
    I was asked to described myself and my main achievements in my previews jobs.
    Then, I was given given a task. There's no straight answer for this task but it's to check how one thinks. During the time I prepared my task, the interviewer was busy with her phone reading emails and when I presented the results, her mind was totally distracted from my answers and I knew that she was no longer with me.

    Interview Questions

    • There questions asked were to check the "way of thinking" on a strategic issue google is facing with competiton.
      There can't be a full answer for that with 5 minutes given to think of the solution but you should present a "path" for solution and show how you think, how creative you are and how you present the solution in an attractive way.   Answer Question
