Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA) in December 2011.

Interview

I was very fortunate and had a laid back crew that interviewed me. It was very much about fitting into the culture first, with technical know how being a strong second. Be prepared to cover some basic academic concepts in regards to programming fundamentals, coding practices, and talk about testing, debugging and code reviews.

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Google (San Francisco, CA) in May 2010.

Interview

I applied and followed up one week later to make sure they had my resume. A week after my follow-up, I received and email to set up a time for a phone interview. They asked me which programming languages I knew and a few basic (but confusing) questions about each language. They also asked about my experience and the classes I'd taken. They said they would follow up with an on-site interview if I got to the next step, which I didn't.

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Google.

Interview

I applied online, got an email. The recruiter said I have a pre-screen phone interview first for 5 minutes only. She scheduled the interview 1 month later. Fine with me, more time to polish my skills. After 1 month, I received a message the same day that she is sick and need to reschedule. No problem, it happens. She set the date 1 week later.On the same day of the interview, she sent another email that she is still not fine and she again rescheduled the interview after a few days. You guessed it, after few days she sent an email that she is still sick, but she won't reschedule the 5 minute interview and she will contact me later. 1 week passed still no email.

How should i take this seriously with very poor communication skills, shouldn't someone else handle the interview when someone is sick? I consider Google my dream job and I will try hard to get it, but sounds like those who get it, don't have the same spirit :/

UPDATE: after 2 weeks, i called google and asked for the name of the recruiter. When she heard my name, she said ohhh I was gonna send you an email, but I got busy and forgot. I was like no problem, she then intrupted and said that she canceled the interview because the manager found someone else.

I'm sure this is not true and she lied and I can't do anything about it. She was nervous and it was easy to tell. I simply don't know if she messed up at something in the management process and ended up like this.

No official emails what so ever afterwards.

Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 10+ months. I interviewed at Google in August 2012.

Interview

I was referred by a friend. I was done two phone interviews with members of Google Design Studio. They were very friendly and supportive. My negative experience becomes from the lack of information I was receiving during the process by the recruiters. After the second interview seems that I was not in the process and nobody didn't tell me anything. I waited 10 months and finally I got an answer from my referral, due to my insistence.

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Google in January 2012.

Interview

I got this opening through a consultancy and they scheduled the initial interview. The first interview was a basic introduction and a small analytical question. Then there were a couple of technical interviews but more concentrated on the analytical skills. Eventually I got a call from my to-be manager and he asked me about my work experience and education (kinda resume related questions). Then finally I got a call from the HR saying that I have been selected.

Negotiation

After the selection the negotiation process started. I informed them about my current package and they offered me a relatively hiked package. It was a simple process as I was happy with the offer and accepted it.
