    I worked at Google as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Super flexible work environment

    Ability to book meetings with anyone on campus for one to one chats to learn more about their work or just get to know them!

    Many course offerings, groups to join and conferences available to attend

    Genuine teammates who are highly skilled and passionate

    A calm vibe, yet everyone is focused and productive

    Got to work on a large project that allowed for a lot of room for creativity

    Many nooks and crannies to work in

    On the main campus, many cafes to explore

    Cons

    Had to watch what I ate because there's free food everywhere

    Not sure how many people actually get time for their desired 20% projects, since a select few I spoke to didn't seem to have time for them

    Some people I spoke with had long commutes to and from work, which seemed to wear them down

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate you and the work you put in to being a great manager. Be encouraged. Stay real and continue to be a mentor to younger professionals.

    Community Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA (US)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    First there was a brief and perfunctory screening by a recruiter. Then a Hangout interview with a team member. The next step would have been an onsite interview, but I never got that far.

    During the Hangout interview, we went through a number of preset questions and little tasks and cases that I'm sure every applicant has to answer. I work better when I just get to talk freely about my experiences and interest in the company, and letting the conversation flow organically, rather than fitting a question grid. It definitely would have helped to prepare more answers for "Tell me about a time when you ..."-type questions.
