    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Google.

    Interview Details

    The first question is atoi. The interviewer is nice and did not require me to consider the boundary case, e.g. Integer.MAX_VALUE, Integer.MIN_VALUE.
    The second question is "give a binary search tree and a target, find the closest number to the target".

    Interview Details

    Referred by a friend. Get email from HR pretty soon. Scheduled three crazy interviews on the same day in the next month. Three guys from different teams interviewed me. Answered two questions for each interview in the first two rounds. Only answered one in the last one. A pretty new question, some thing like search common ancestors in several DAGs.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Google.

    Interview Details

    The process was pretty standard - 2 technical phone interviews. I waited 2 weeks for a reply. I am disappointed not because I was not made an offer but because of their attitude - I received an e-mail saying that I was going to be interviewed and 2 days later I received another saying that I was not going to be interviewed. When I asked for an explanation, they said it was because I was graduating the same year, which was clearly not the case as I indicated I was pursuing a Master's degree and I was only going to be available during the summer. I demanded to be redirected to someone in order to complain about this and they resumed my interview process. After each interview I was not given the opportunity to ask any questions, although the engineers were nice.

    Interview Details

    I had 3 technical phone interviews. Each interview was 45 minutes long. A few days after the interviews I received an email where the recruiter said that we can move to the next phase. The next phase was about waiting: a team had to choose me. Fortunately I didn't have to wait long. The 4th interview was with the host, it was approx 30 minutes long. The interview was about the project they are working on. I didn't get any technical questions.

    • The questions were quite standard. They gave me a task and I had to code the solution.   Answer Question
