    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Google (Seoul (South Korea)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I Applied via web site. A recruiter contacted me after few days. He asked some questions and scheduled the phone screening interview. The question for the phone interview was not so hard, but I was so nervous thus I could not do pretty well. Another recruiter contacted me after two weeks. He notified I had passed the test and scheduled the onsite interview.

    At the onsite interview, I had interviewed with five different engineers plus another one who I had lunch with. They were all polite and nice people. I felt that interview itself were not so bad, but recruiter hasn't call me back. This recruiter's behavior actually made me feel he is so rude. I know the recruiters are so busy and cannot reach to all candidates, but at least he should copy & paste "no" answer.

    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Seoul (South Korea)) in May 2011.

    Interview

    There were a total of 6 telephone interviews conducted, all in the Korean language. As Korean is not my primary language, it was difficult to convey my intended communication properly, but for this sales role, I learned it was essential to be fluent, as Korea is a very homogeneous nation.
