How have your experiences shaped your ability to work and lead a team?

In my experience as [sic], I have managed a team of students tasked with producing content which will be read by thousands of readers in Academia. This experience has enabled me to gain a better understanding as to how to entice cooperation and teamwork and ensure deadlines are met. Additionally, my experience has taught that treating team members as equals and avoiding a vertical ladder approach is beneficial for fostering a productive environment. Less

How many people do you think Google screens every week ? How many people do you think in year?

2 Answers

With questions like these, they're really trying to gauge your approach to problem solving. Think about what numbers are needed to answer a question like this. Google currently has around 50,000 employees. Let's assume they have an attrition rate of around 10% and a growth rate of around 5%. That means that they're going to need to replace around 5,000 employees, and their growth rate indicates they'll hire an additional 2500. In total, they'll probably hire ~7500 employees in the upcoming year. Let's say that it takes around 200 applicants for them to find the right one, so to hire 7500 employees, they'll need to look at 1.5 million applicants in that year. We can break that number down into applicants per week (1.5 million ÷ ~50), which comes out to around 30,000 applicants per week. But the number of applicants per week isn't always stable -- people might be more likely to apply for jobs in Q2, for example. So in any given week, you might expect the number of applicants to be somewhere between 15,000 and 45,000. Less

Probably about 2 million people a year. It would break down to ~39,108 candidates per week. That's screening applications. As far as actually getting an interview, that number would be a lot less. Less

Depends on situations

You're not the only one they're treating badly in the interview process. Hopefully these negative ratings will make they realize the inhumane treatment will come back to bite them in terms of getting the right candidates to trust their time investment in interviewing is actually worth it. Less


What would you like out of the internship?

1 Answers

I answered as truthfully as I could. I wanted to understand organisational culture and the lines of action that a corporation engaged in their day-to-day conversations. GoBear's unique position in the industry allowed me to see both the similarities and the differences of traditional corporate culture that I had to study during my academic semester. Also, I wanted to see how theoretical ideas of organisational culture are put into practice in an organisation. With the chaos of being a start-up, I wanted to see how GoBear could maintain their unique culture standing within the organisation and without. Less
