    Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Dublin, Co. Dublin) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I apllied for Community Manager role in the middle of October, 13 after I spent a couple of weeks on polishing my CV and cover letter to ensure it would be answered. But it took more than six weeks for them to reply as they contacted me in early December. We had a phone screening (40 minutes long, general questions on education, working experience, etc.). I wasn't ready for an interview at the moment so I most probably looked a bit inconsistent but a recruter was very positive and supportive so I expected at least I would get a chance for a proper interview. Unfortunately three days later they sent me an email and said they wouldn't pursue.
