    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    Phone screening referring mostly to my CV and motivations but also one or two (easy) technical questions (e.g. complexity of a particular sorting algorithm).
    Technical phone interviews vary a lot from one google engineer to another. For the internship there will be two phone coding tests, for the permanent position just one. Usually they include two coding questions, one easier, one more difficult.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Google (London, England (UK)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    It started with an HR interview.
    After the HR interview I was scheduled a phone screen interview with one engineer.
    He started by introducing himself and then made a coding question.
    We were sharing a Google Doc, so he wrote the question and he was able to see whatever I wrote in the Google Doc.
    After I answered the question we had a brief discussion about performance.
