Mission: Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.
I have been working at Google full-time (More than 3 years)
Regardless your seniority, at Google everyone values your opinion and takes it into consideration
Different divisions with different KPIs might cause confusion as to what is really right to happen.
I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Dublin, Co. Dublin) in December 2013.
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.
