Technical Solutions Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Google.

Interview

Phone screen with the recruiter asking about skills and experience that applied to job posting. After that, it was a technical interview with a manager that was supposed to be through a Google Hangout. The hangout didn't work on their end, so it ended up just being another phone interview. Asked quite a few technical questions, some business-related questions (specifically about Google Ads), and then was asked to write an algorithm.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for a Software Engineering job, and then contacted by a Google recruiter that asked if I was interested in this position. The first step was a phone screen with the recruiter which was followed up about a week later with an online, 1-hour Google Hangout interview. The next day I was contact to schedule a day for an on-site interview which ended up being about 2 weeks later. This interview consisted of 4 45-minute interviews, 2 non-technical, 1 more technical, and 1 completely technical coding interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Google (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It started with a friendly phone screen, followed by a technical phone interview via phone. Then I was flown up to their office in New York, where I was interviewed by 4 different people. Three of them via video conference. The interviews in the New York were fairly OK, except for the coding question. I found that one to be hard and the interviewer was quite harsh in my opinion.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Google (New York, NY) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Extremely long interview process. Started with initial call with recruiter. Followed by a technical phone screen. After that I had an onsite where I interviewed with 5 different people ranging from TSC's, to software engineers, to hiring managers. The onsite was a great experience. Up to this point I was informed that the onsite would be the last step in the process, but this was not the case. They requested to do another follow up technical interview. After this, I thought this was the end. Nope! All the positive feedback came in, but apparently I now have to find a "hiring manager" that wants me to join his/her team. What?? I ultimately found a team and manager that wanted me. Final two steps is passing a final hiring committee and then the offer committe. You can get turned down (despite all the prior positive feedback) by someone reviewing your resume in 1 min in either of these committees. I was ultimately turned down by the offer committee. The entire process was about 3-4 months. It just doesn't seem right to waste this much of someone's time only to be rejected by a committee who review your background for 1-2 minutes.
