    I have been working at Google full-time

    Pros

    Great Pay, Great Flexibility, Nice Coworkers,

    Cons

    None really other than constant work that we never seem to have enough time to complete.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more patient with the teams. We are only human.

    Community Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    This was through a recruiter for a short-term contract so the hourly rate was already worked out and there was no room for negotiation.

    My recruiter submitted me and within two weeks a Hangouts interview was set up. It was about 30-40 minutes. The hiring manager was professional, considerate and asked me relevant questions.

    I was surprised to get the offer by Hangouts but I took it. Google at the top of my resume helped a lot after the fact, too.
