Mission: Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.
I worked at Google full-time (Less than a year)
Benefits, atmosphere, corporate culture, respect of the community
None, really. Great place to work.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Google.
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.
