    I won't describe all steps because they have been published here many times. Let me explain the most important parts for all of your interviews (ordered by importance!):

    1. Structured approach.

    Structure is everything. Structure is everything. Structure is everything. Have I mentioned that structured is everything? If not, structure is everything. Do some consulting cases to learn to think in a structured way. Check everything from Victor Cheng to really learn to think and answer questions in a structured way. This will help you in ANY job interview!

    2. Know why you'd like to work for Google.

    You applied at Google. Great, but why? Really think about it and make sure it reflects in all of your answers.

    3. AdWords knowledge.

    Check Academy for Ads. There is one seminar called "introduction to AdWords" or something. Do that and write down the important things on a piece of paper.
    Check the AdWords Manual/Help site.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im August 2017 bei Google (Dublin, Dublin (Irland)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Ich habe nicht den normalen Bewerbungsprozess bei Google genommen, sondern bin über das BOLD Programm reingerutscht. Dadurch hatte ich ein Telefoninterview im Vorhinein, was ca. 30min ging und wo hauptsächlich Fragen zur Motivation gestellt wurden --> Warum Google?
    Danach hatte ich ein on-site interview während des BOLD Programmes und danach noch 2 weitere Hangout Interviews. Insgesamt waren alle Recruiter unglaublich nett und ich habe den ganzen Prozess als sehr menschlich wahrgenommen.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich persönlich beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im März 2017 bei Google (Dublin, Dublin (Irland)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Vorabgespräch mit Recruiterin, dabei schon grundlegende technische Fragen aus dem Unix-Bereich. Danach 2 Telefon-Interviews zu Technik und Management. Die Interviewer waren hier sehr freundlich und die Fragen angemessen (bei Technik zu Unix, danach Coding-Problem in Google Docs, wo man überschneidende Intervalle aus einer Liste aussortieren sollte). Danach Einladung nach Dublin mit 5 Gesprächen direkt hintereinander, unterbrochen durch eine Mittagspause in der Kantine, wo ich die Gelegenheit hatte, mich mit dem SRE Site Manager zu unterhalten. 2 Wochen später erhielt ich die Mitteilung, daß das Ergebnis ungenügend war. Detalliertes Feedback gab es nicht, nur eine Info, welche Gespräche aus Sicht von Google gut waren und welche nicht. Ich habe im ganzen Prozeß gemerkt, daß sehr viel davon Glückssache ist und auch davon abhängt, welche Interviewer man bekommt und wie sie an dem Tag gelaunt sind. Außerdem schien man weniger an mir als Mensch interessiert zu sein; die Gespräche haben mich eher an mündliche Prüfungen an der Uni erinnert. Ich bin mir nicht sicher, ob ich es später noch einmal bei dieser Firma versuchen werde.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich auf Empfehlung eines Mitarbeiters beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 1 Woche. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Mai 2020 bei Google (Dublin, Dublin (Irland)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Applied online (with internal referral). Got the invitation for the recruiter's screening in about 10 days. Recruiter was sharp, efficient and on-point. The invitation for the first interview round followed. All very professional, with the recruiter's support. Interview itself was a disaster. The interviewer was very dry (borderline rude), it was by no means a conversation, rather felt like a police interrogation. Minimum eye contact, interviewer was just taking down the notes. Questions for the role in the particular team were theoretical and very generic (at some point I even got worried, that they confused the interviews, and that one was for a different role). Also those questions had quite little to do with competencies listed in the job description. Interviewer seemed to be clearly disappointed that I did not have experience with "multi-billion projects that are of Google scale", even though this was not a role requirement and my resume does not say that I do have such experience. About 20 minutes into the interview I wanted to finish the interview myself. The few questions that I had about the role/team were answered in generic 1-2 sentence (nothing more detailed than the publicly available information). As the interviewer did not show any interest in me as a potential candidate, this is why I am not surprised by zero of follow-up from the recruiter (even though this is something that is a regular step in rejection). I am not sure if I will want to apply to Google again, but one thing for sure -- I would not want to be my interviewer's teammate.

    Very convoluted hiring process and unprepared hiring manager, waste of candidates time

    They are looking for Business analysts and Programmers at the price tag of an agent for client customer service, why would anyone spend time like that working in the wrong job is beyond me.

    Very vague job description in job ad and expects you to know the entire google ecosystem.

    Asked irrelevant questions throughout the interview and rather one sided experience than making it comfortable for both parties.

    Biased and thought provoking approach mechanisms, specially the hiring manager from Singapore.

    These employees need retraining in people skills, as of now they are incompetent to deal with applications or applicants.

    Wasted 24 hours of my time preparing for an unclear position (thats right! 24 hours notice for interviews), only to find out I lacked product knowledge when in fact during the interview I demonstrated multiple examples of rich product knowledge.

    Very complacent hiring manager/ agent who takes no regard and respect for candidates time.

    A very robotic experience, and such outdated questioning and answering practices. Felt like I was interviewing in the 70’s

    Feel sorry for these people. Working for Google is a great opportunity but this GPSE process or department lacked all the qualities what Google represents, having talked to their hiring manager it became apparent to me.

    I gladly declined their hiring process and practices as the role itself was for a short term contract.

    Product knowledge can be comparable to wider similar service providers outside Google or maybe its just this team that requires you to memorise all the product knowledge for Google products beforehand, who cares if you slack at work because product knowledge is everything for this team.

    My advice - please stop disrespecting people and be open minded to possibilities of an outside world other than google ego.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Market Specialist (Trust and Safety) for Youtube. 1 stage was a screening with the recruiter. 2nd stage was a 1:1 video interview with the member of trust and safety department (peer) and this is where my interview ended despite really solid, I'd say good interview, and this is the stage where I do have my concerns which I am going to share now. The whole process from the candidate experience was really good, the recruiter looked after me from the very beginning till the end including phone rejection call. This position was really something I was keen on and had some high hopes about. I do posses a rich experience when it comes to job interviews, particularly at tech/social media companies so I can compare and evaluate all the aspects of this particular interview very well, including my performance. I answered all 10 questions, most of them very well/on point, 1 or maximum 2 a bit weaker but still decent answers. My total passing threshold of 1:1 interviews prior to panel/onsite interview stage (all interviews at tech companies I have had in my life) is 85% (which is quite high). Unfortunately it didn't work out this time and it's strange because I felt I had a good interview, my recruiter even confirmed it during the rejection (!?) that most of my answers were good. After having 10 interviews at tech companies within last 2 years I can tell - and this is my feedback to the recruiters: there is significantly harder to pass 1:1 interview prior onsite if the interviewer is a regular employee / peer (non-managerial role). A passing threshold for me when the interviewee is a peer is approx 55% (compared to overall 85%). This was the case this time with YT as well. I always wonder why companies trust so much in quality of such hiring decisions these days. There is even no way to verify what has been input into feedback section by my interviewer who is not a a pro recruiter/interviewer or a manager. They can wrote almost anything, they can make up stuff or consciously misinterpret things to help their preferred candidates get shortlisted instead. I am not saying my interviewer cheated, but I would like to point it out as this is the trend these days and I know from internal sources ( I work in social media company) there are easy ways to consciously "sink" the candidate by selectively inputting interview feedback (missing strong points of interviewee's answers purposefully) , giving too much objective opinions + making up things to justify it, that had never been said by the interviewee etc ... no one is going to verify it if it's 1:1 interview! and even if , it's always easy to make an excuse "ohh I misinterpreted him". It is really sad because people like me prepare a lot for each interview, it is emotionally draining and nothing hurts more than unfair rejection and a strong feeling that something went wrong on my interviewer's side. I will try again with YouTube in the future if I get the chance but I would love the companies to stop assigning regular peers to interview panel BEFORE the actual onsite stage (any 1:1 stage).
