    Interview Details

    Overall, I thought that the HR department at Google was very helpful and easy to work with. However, it seems that for APM they are still using Fermi Questions. Overall, I was not happy with my performance on the interview, but much of that has to do with not knowing what to prepare in the first place. It didn't seem like going over technical skills helped at all. The first round was a Fermi Question (below) and other questions like

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Google in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was simple and seamless. I had 5 interviews - 1 phone screen and 4 on-site interviews. The interviews tested me on a wide range of skills, from product design to analytical. I thought everyone was really smart, friendly, and passionate about their work and Google. I thought the culture seemed very open; all of my interviewers told me detailed descriptions about what they were working on when I asked and people in the hallways were willing to stop and point me in the right direction when I got lost.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Google in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I got contacted by an HR recruiter to set up a first phone interview with a PM, few days after an employee referred me. The interviewer had a non-technical background and 10+ years experience in a non-tech related company.

    The questions were fairly conventional:
    1) Why do you want to join Google?
    2) Design questions:
    - How would you design an ATM for elderly people?
    - How would you figure out whether there are any problems with the ATM design?
    - What is a Google product you love? Imagine you are responsible for one of its features, how would you monitor its use, and how to measure its success/ failure?
    3) Market sizing questions:
    -How to monetize Google Maps?
    -How would you calculate the revenue from the ads on Google Maps?
    4) Creativity questions: (took nearly 25 minutes, clearly the most important part for the interviewer)
    - Google is thinking of creating an all internet car, brainstorm some interesting use cases!

    I applied online – interviewed at Google.

    Interview Details

    They set up an interview, which they explained was a huge process. There are two phone interviews, on-site interviews, an essay, and then a final interview with the head of Product development.

    They don't give feedback either, so it's really difficult to figure out exactly how you did in the interview. All in all though, I had a pleasant time.
