How many people do you think Google screens every week ? How many people do you think in year?

2 Answers

With questions like these, they're really trying to gauge your approach to problem solving. Think about what numbers are needed to answer a question like this. Google currently has around 50,000 employees. Let's assume they have an attrition rate of around 10% and a growth rate of around 5%. That means that they're going to need to replace around 5,000 employees, and their growth rate indicates they'll hire an additional 2500. In total, they'll probably hire ~7500 employees in the upcoming year. Let's say that it takes around 200 applicants for them to find the right one, so to hire 7500 employees, they'll need to look at 1.5 million applicants in that year. We can break that number down into applicants per week (1.5 million ÷ ~50), which comes out to around 30,000 applicants per week. But the number of applicants per week isn't always stable -- people might be more likely to apply for jobs in Q2, for example. So in any given week, you might expect the number of applicants to be somewhere between 15,000 and 45,000. Less

Probably about 2 million people a year. It would break down to ~39,108 candidates per week. That's screening applications. As far as actually getting an interview, that number would be a lot less. Less

What do you know about Medallia?

2 Answers

The is challenging because the website (and new hires) can only tell you so much about a company. What Medallia does isn't well-known in the Silicon Valley where consumer-facing apps/products overshadow enterprise software. I knew, however, that Medallia aligned with trends I'm passionate about: growing consumer power, increasing focus on the consumer experience and customer feedback, and social, mobile, analytics, and cloud. What I learned throughout the interview process: Medallia is an enterprise software company (cloud) that helps companies improve customer experiences by capturing feedback (social: think Yelp and TripAdvisor APIs; mobile: think surveys). Medallia helps companies gather and then make sense of that feedback through their browser and mobile products (analytics: think online dashboards, text analytics, graphs, charts). Users of Medallia's products span from store or regional managers, all the way up to VPs of Customer Experience. Less

I've been approached by a recruiter via LinkedIn to represent Medallia in an international Sales Director role. I've sold enterprise software for over 15 years having held account executive roles for large companies (Oracle, CA, IBM). Like you though, enterprise software is not really where my passion is. Instead, again like you, my interest has always been more aligned with our current trends of "growing consumer power, increasing focus on consumer experience and customer feedback, and social, mobile, analytics, and cloud". Your feedback has been insightful so I'd like to give you a thank you for sharing. Thank you. I'm loving everything I'm reading/seeing online about Medallia and the timing for the recruiter to reach out was absolutely perfect. I'm very interested in learning more about the Medallia hiring process and expected timelines for joining Medallia in an international sales capacity role. On that note, if you now have a professional relationship with anyone inside Medallia who you might recommend I reach out to as part of my research and in preparation for ensuring and fast tracking an optimal fit for the both of us, then I would welcome you reaching back out to me in the hopes of a brokered introduction. As stated, the timing on my end is perfect but I am not in a position to wait this out for a couple or few months. I am smitten with Medallia but I've been working on a startup for the last year and half (sans pay) and now that it's on its own and has a few key executives in place, I not only want to secure another role, I really need to, and am actively looking at other moves.
