I worked at Google full-time (More than 8 years)
Work on top global products
The parts you work on become really small if you are on a large project...if you can find interesting new projects you will have more scope and impact.
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Google (Mountain View, CA (US)) in January 2015.
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.
