I feel like my google swe eng prod interview was super easy compared to other interviews i was reading online at leetcode discuss. only chalenging questions were union find, topological sort and a stack problem, but some questions were like foo bar level...

I was just left super confused about the whole process... but I passed hc, got team matched and had the offer in 2 weeks...

Does google eng prod have lower hiring bar?

      I would say they are mediums, the problems that were being described in leetcode discuss were like hards every round.

      I also had foo bar level problems 2 rounds (I had extra rounds ordered by hc)
