    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Lubbock, TX) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter because she saw my LinkedIn profile. Had a 15 minute conversation with her where she told me about the interview process. I set up a google hangout technical interview 3 weeks out so I could have time to prepare. The technical interviewer was a really cool nice guy. I just finished that interview and don't know if they'll ask for to come over for on-site interviews. He said he recommends that for about 20-25% of the people he interviews. I feel like I did alright. We'll see.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I was recommended by a Google employer. HR contacted me with a 12 questions questionnaire about data science, data analytics experiences. Followed by a phone screen with HR recruiter, and a subsequent 1 hour technical interview via google hangout presumably focused on statistics and probability. Tech interviewer was a non-english speaker and acting in a hurry. Two questions one on random variables from a uniform distribution, and a second open ended question on how to measure whether users liked videos. I thought I did well in answering the questions and making sure I talked and explained out loud my reasoning process. HR called me next day telling me they decided not to move forward. No explanations, no justifications. HR said he had no access to interview feedback. Just bizarre.

    Interview Questions

    • 3 random variables i.i.d from a uniform distribution 0 to 2, what is the probability that the median is > 1.5?
      How would you measure how much users liked videos.   9 Answers

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online. A online specialist got touched with me and arranged a screen interview for me. The experience is very good. I tried to prepare the questions they might ask me. But it is impossible to prepare. I was arranged with a manager of google maps. The questions were all about google maps. But I did't do very well.
