Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee in Gurgaon, Haryana
Anonymous Employee in Gurgaon, Haryana
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Google.

Interview Details

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 Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Details

    Referred by a friend. Interview set up a month in advance. 3 phone interviews, all technical. Typical interview questions that required use of various data structures, nothing unexpected. First two interviewers were nice and helpful, relatively easy questions. Third interviewer was rather dull and gave a question that had no answer, nor did he help in giving hints (nearly silence on the other end).

    After applying through the Google Jobs website, I was reached out to by a member of their People Operations team. I had a short telephone interview with one of the recruiters, then 2 telephone interviews with members of the team I would be joining, and then an offer. The whole process was very well organised and swift.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Google in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    The whole process was very exciting! I felt comfortable during the interview and had a small conversation after both rounds. Both rounds included market sizing questions. The second round was held with the head of the department which I applied to. I didn't get any reply but had been earlier told that if there are positive results then they will call tomorrow. So, I knew that I failed already the next day! ;-p
