    Software Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Google in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process took around 9 weeks. I applied online in mid October and got an interview call within a week. Due to other offers I asked them to expedite my interview schedule and they did so. I interviewed with them end of October and by the 1st week of November they confirmed I had gotten through to Host matching. Here's unfortunately where things slowed WAYYY down. After sending in my host preferences I had to push other offer deadlines multiple times as Hosts were slow to respond. I finally got matched with a host around the first week of December. One week later I was told that the hosts had decided to go with another candidate. It wasn't until the 3rd week of december when the recruiter told me that one of my previous hosts changed his position and would like to offer me the job.

    Interview Questions

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Google.

    Interview Details

    Have been uploading my resume for last 10 years. Never got any response. This time used referral. Was contacted after a month. Had telephonic interview. The interviewer was from the headquarters. He asked typical questions that are well documented in GlassDoor.

    After 3 weeks, I was called for four rounds of F2F interview at the Bangalore office. The interview went well. The campus is amazing and I experienced the famous free lunch.

    I got result after three weeks. I did not qualify.

    Interview Questions
    • During technical interview, the interviewer wanted me do activities done by his engineering team, which has got nothing to do with what a product manager does. A Product manager can provide pseudo code, wireframes, etc but does not engage in core engineering activities.   Answer Question

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Anonymous Interview Candidate 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.

    Software Engineer In Test Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    The hiring process was pretty smooth. I got an email requesting for availability for the position and once I confirmed positively , got a call from the HR for setting up of the phone screen. At that time, I already had another offer so HR wanted to know which company was that offer. So they scheduled my phone screen immediately in the next couple of days.

    There were two people for the phone screen and they asked me to start using Google Docs for writing up the code.
    Initially they asked for my experience, I tried explaining what I do, didn't get much follow up questions on it.
    Later asked 2-3 programmatic questions.
