I appeared in Google onsite on Jan 8. Today I got an unscheduled call from recruiter and he was saying that I did a great job at interviews and next step is hiring committee. I asked him about my chances and he said I’m not an engineer but chances are definitely way better than 50/50. Then he asked about any pending offers and said I’m asking this because we don’t want to lose a good candidate.
As far as my onsite is concerned, questions were easy-medium with a lot of follow-ups but I was expecting much harder questions. I was able to give optimal solutions for all them without any hints. According to personal assessment, I could have done better in testing part.
No questions were from Leetcode. But definitely Leetcode helped a lot.
TC: 125K base + (100K of worthless stocks)
- Facebook scamerzaccFWIW I was rejected at HC even though recruiter told me the exact same thing. 5 yoe 230 TC. Don't get your hopes up yet
- Facebook bg101HC sucks big time at Google. They go threw the questions asked in interview and may request one more round.
- New phzt36Great!) Hope, you'll get an offer! Can u give us a rough difficulty, topics about your questions? Was it similar to the leetcode or maybe direct questions from the LC.
- No LeetCode question. Question were about Tries, Tree, Array. I’d suggest to focus on fundamentals. They care a lot about optimizations in code. I mean if your code is optimal in Big O, you still need to improve its runtime i.e swap nested loops and many other code level optimizations.
