    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    This was an employee referral and a ~ 6 month process back in 2011. From what I know the entire process is much shorter and faster now. The recruiting team was very professional and helpful. While the process was elaborate most questions are standard interviewing questions (see below).
    - Product related questions.
    - Market sizing and guesstimate questions
    - Questions about personality and professional experience

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    It was a long (~2 months from application to hire) but relatively straight-forward process.

    I found it pretty typical of other Valley interview processes -- recruiter call, call with team, in-person, then hiring committee, then offer.

    Just take each step as it comes and try not to think too much about it. Recruiter was super helpful, supportive, and guided me through everything.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA (US)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews, the first one focused in personal questions and professional background (quick summary on my past experience, what I like to do, etc...). In the second phone interview it was more technical with more specific questions on the job itself. Although they seemed to like my profile, my Visa didn't allow me to switch jobs and the H1B process would take place only 6 months later, which would be too late to them, so we decided to keep in touch for future opportunities.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA (US)) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Applied via internal referral process. Was contacted immediately afterwards and went through two phone screenings. First screening was with HR and consisted of basic fit questions. The second was with a Hiring Manager and was a bit more detailed and involved a brief case study. I head back from them about a week later and scheduled an interview on-site. The on-site consisted of 4 interviews over the course of about 3 hours. No crazy brain teaser questions were asked but we did go through several case studies. Be prepared to go through case studies.
