Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Google (Gurgaon, Haryana).

Interview

The process was the standard Google process.

CV shortlisting > 3 rounds of interview > result

The toughest part is the period of waiting in the 3 interviews as the results come after all the 3. So I advice people to be calm and don't think about the previous interview as it's an objective decision. ie if 2 out of 3 interviews like you, you get the role.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview about three weeks after applying. Some of the questions were straightforward behavioral questions and some were difficult brainteaser/coding questions. The interviewer did not seem too impressed with my answers, but she was respectful and answered any questions I had about the company. After the interview I received an email letting me know that they were no longer considering me for the position.

    Interview

    I Applied online through their website. heard back from them in 1 week (or 2), which was quite surprising. the guy who schedules my interviews was very nice and answered all my questions regarding the interviews. I had 3 phone interviews each with a different Googler. the first two were really good and the interviewers helped me to get the correct answers and were quite nice and patient. the third one was not so good though as I had difficulty understanding the guy (he had a very strong accent).

    Interview Questions

    • no can do. The questions were quite straightforward though, just need to know how to code in C++ and have a bit of experience in solving routine questions (like string proccesing).   Answer Question

    Interview

    I had three 45-minute technical interviews in succession. The first interviewer had a very thick and unintelligible accent, and acted angry and disappointed, but the other two made me feel very comfortable. Overall, I got the impression the interviewers were kind and cared.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Google.

    Interview

    I studied for a month. I am only a sophomore: the questions I was asked were hard for my level of coding. It was quite disappointing. I had a phone interview with two google employees. The first phone call was nice but I was not able to finish coding. The second call was horrendous. As we were sharing the google doc, I saw roughly 10-15 people go on to look at what I was working on. In addition to that, the interviewer had me on speaker. The speaker sucked and I kept hearing my own voice echo back at me. So it was nearly impossible to hear my interviewer over my echo. Whenever I asked my interviewer to repeat what he said because I couldn't hear, he would answer back with an attitude. The interviewer was rude. The question was also difficult and I answered it inefficiently. It was awful and I wish that I never have such a bad interview experience in the future.
