I had a phone interview with recruiter. About a week later, I had a video / coding interview with a Senior Software Engineer. He was reasonable to work with in the interview.

  • The questions were appropriate for the job, and were totally reasonable. Unfortunately, I didn't prepare and blew the opportunity.   1 réponse

    J'ai postulé en personne. Le processus a pris 5 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Google.

    Entretien

    Recruiter was very compassionate and professional through the overall process all the way until conveying that reject decision.(Got some specific feedback on nitpicked issues on mistakes made and some complements). Overall the experience feels like a big machinery(It is GOOGLE come on! ) churning through the huge number of candidates to prove themselves they believe they can hire only who are star software engineers (who can code like a machine as if coding is the singular aspect of software engineering and makes no mistakes in the first attempt). A mix of some friendly and some intimidating jerkish engineers. One interviewer used some intimidating words ('Be careful') whenever he thought there was a mistake in an interface I was asked to define, a guy who said 'we have already done this', pulled of shaking hands with me in a rude way (I accidentally had done the gesture apparently already once), couple of cases the English language of the engineers who interviewed were bad enough that I could not understand their question or not sure if they understood my analysis when he/she gave feedback. Overall, the process felt the engineers want to prove why those engineers are in Google( and why they are convinced that these interviews ) and why most others coming into interview should not be. In one case, another employee was annoyed that my interviewer was staying in the conference room too long when he was banging the door. So, when we came out of the interview the other guy started yelling that he had to wait so long and could not get into his meeting. At the end of the interview came out with the feeling this place has more baggage of bad personalities and churn of the mill imperfect humans instead of 'I want to work at the places where all modern complex distributed systems problems where solved impacting average person in the world.'

    Extremely unimpressed with Google, in every area I had expected a lot better. Inattentive, lazy recruiters. Incorrect prep and advice videos. Poor interviewers. Incredibly slow process for no reason (I knew this going in)

    The interview was actually very easy, but about half of the interviewers were not asking questions that would let you judge talent. Following their own advice about interviewing turned out to be a mistake - their interviewers didn't follow it! Everything they said to study never actually came up. I made it to the final stage, was wanted by a team manager, and the mysterious final hiring committee rejected my application. Ridiculous. This experience made me sell my Google stock.

    Entretien

    Takes way too long, They never got past the question of "What do you want to do?", recruiter after recruiter, I got an offer from another company while Google is still asking the same question, over and over. Expect to spend a lot of time talking with recruiters before getting to a technical interview. Way too slow, this went on for over a month. They are even proud of this. For my purposes, this touchy-feely business didn't work so other companies that just got right to the point were more attractive.

    Round 1: a recruiter calls you. They will ask you a few simple questions. Things such as "what's faster, quicksort or bubblesort". If you answer enough of these correctly, you get to the next round. If you fail here: stop moaning, go away and go improve yourself, there is no way you would have passed the later stages anyway.
    Round 2: an engineer will call you, and interview you for 45 minutes. Only the "best" interviewers get to do what we call "first phone screens" because that's where the most people get kicked out.
    Round 3: exactly the same as round 2, but with a different engineer. From the interviewer's perspective, second phone screens are infinitely better than first phone screens, because the totally incompetent have been weeded out already.
    Round4: onsite interviews! you will have 3 interviews of 45 minutes, lunch, and 2 more interviews. These are basically the same as phone screens, but you get to see the interviewers face to face.

    • Imagine you are given 10,000 files each containing 1 Million integers. I would you sum all of them and give the final result?

      ---> Interviewer wanted to test scalability, distributed concepts.

      He has written the basic code and wanted to improve upon that.
      Here's the basic code.

      public getSum(String[] file_names) {
          int sum = 0;
          for(String f: file_names) {
              sum = sum + sumOfFile(f);
          }
          return sum;
      }
      Questions:
      What's wrong with above code? Ans: Integer overflow
      How would you implement sumOfFile?
      What if 'sumOfFile' takes lot of time to finish computing?
      How do you fasten the program?   2 Réponses

    Entretien

    Went onsite with Mountain View campus for position in google cloud division. Total 5 interviewers. Not sure how they selected the interviewers - end up 3 interviewers asking distributed system questions. One scheduled interviewer did not show up, so a replacement guy showed up with very little preparation. Another interviewer came from hardware group which is surprising (I am not a hardware guy, and the interviewer did not get to any kernel level question as well). They seem to have quite different background as I do, making the interview process somewhat out of synergy. It became an awkward process.

    It is the worst process I ever had. The interview is simple and straight forward. However it has the worst team match experience at all! It took me 2month and no team coonect me. The reason is that the internal transfer people (more than hundreds) is looking for team match. They din't consider people in the pool. If google dont have headcount, why you hire me?!

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    Raison du refus

    Cannot wait for the team match! They are killing people's passion and they dont respect talent engineers.
