    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA).

    Interview

    I applied through Google's career site and contacted a friend who also referred me for the role. I was scheduled for an initial phone screen and had my call with one of the initial recruiters. The recruiter seemed disinterested in what I had to share about my experience and background and abruptly ended the call without providing info about next steps. I was really disappointed in how the call was handled and was surprised that Google managed its screening process in such an unprofessional manner.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process from start to finish took about 2 months. It started with a phone interview with someone who is currently doing the job. Then I was offered an opportunity to come to Mountain View. I had three 45 min interviews in the morning. I had someone escort me to lunch and chat with me about the company. Then I had two interviews in the afternoon session. Overall, everyone was nice and I thought the interview questions were fair.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Google in January 2016.

    Interview

    Started with a call from the recruiter to let me know that I had been selected for the phone screen. Then via email over the next week we arranged the time for that call. I interviewed with someone in the same position from another Google Fiber city. The questions were pretty standard. After that I got an email from the original recruiter and a new recruiter who let me know I had made it to the in person interviews. We arranged for me to take the interview at the local office instead of traveling to Mountain View for personal reasons. They were really accomodating about that. The day of the interviews I had lunch with a future co-worker at the local office and then interviewed with 4 people all through Google Hangout but in the local office. It took about 4 hours and was actually a super easy process. Again the questions were not hard, I had prepared well, and overall the experience was fantastic.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Google (Redwood City, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    A Google recruiter called me for the first pass, sanity check. She said Google asks several agencies to find candidates (I made the first cut) and then they review all the candidates from all the recruiters, so it may be weeks before Google calls me for their first pass.
    They called me with no warning as my resume is on the boards and on LinkedIn stating I am looking.

    I was told I'd be coming in to meet the hiring manager but that it wouldn't be an official interview. Once I'd arrived, they popped open their laptop and started down the list of interview questions.

    First interview was HR, that went as expected. then the next one was with an employee of the company that was a very technical interview at Google for a non-technical role. Not a good experience at all.
