Recruitment Process

Once you have applied for a job, your qualifications and experience will be reviewed by one of Google's recruiters to determine if your resume matches their requirements. If found suitable recruiter will contact you to learn more about your background and answer questions about their hiring process and what it's like to work at Google.

 

Phone interview
Resume shortlisting will be followed by telephonic interview to assesses your technical skills and proficiency, to the level of determining whether you should be brought in for in-person interviews. Typically phone interviews are conducted by someone in a similar role and last about 30-40 minutes.

 

Onsite interview

Google's interview process for technical positions evaluates a candidate's core software engineering skills including: coding, algorithm development, data structures, design patterns, analytical thinking skills. During interview, several engineers across different teams meet prospective employees for cross-section view of Google Engineering. Interviewers will ask candidates questions related to their area of interest and ask to solve them in real time. Google's interview process for business and general positions evaluate a candidate's problem solving and behavioral abilities. Remember, it's not a question of getting the answer right or wrong, but the process in which you use to solve it. Creativity is important.

Everyone's opinion counts, ensuring its hiring process is fair. Google's hiring mantra is - hire great people and involve them intensively in the hiring process, you’ll get more great people.
