Google scheduled an Interview but nearing the end of my STEM OPT

Hi Blinders,
My OPT is expiring in Feb 2019, but google contacted me if i was interested in a position in Mountain View and then also scheduled the phone Interview. I cleared the phone interview and the on-site is scheduled on 26th this month.
I'm quite surprised that google scheduled the interview even after knowing about my OPT expiring soon. Microsoft didn't move forward after knowing about my OPT.

What will Google do if i get selected? Is it a common process(hiring at the end of OPT) in Google?
What other companies do the same thing?

Also appreciate for giving referrals in other companies to increase my odds and helpful for negotiating...

YOE-2, have been practicing leetcode for a month and did 100+ questions.
