    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at YouTube (San Bruno, CA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter who set up a phone interview. Spoke with someone on the team for 30 minutes about my opinion on internet trends and policy issues. Immediately contacted by recruiter who set up an on-site interview. On site interview included 4 individual interviews and a team lunch. Found out about a week later I didn't get the job.
