Are Google interviews in Sunnyvale easier than Mountainview?

If not, are Google interviews easier during the holidays??

I have my first ever Google interview tomorrow and back luck seems to follow me. I always get asked the hardest questions. Unless Google asks me leetcode medium or easier, theres no way I even stand a chance.

Update: i was asked two hard dp questions. definitely not getting an offer :/

    The lunch interview is easier. In Mountainview they keep track of what you eat. Sunnyvale cafe isn’t the same so you won’t get evaluated on what you take. I know numerous people who were DQ’ed on lunch interview.

    Remember, with Google the technical aspect of your answers is not everything.

    i think sunnyvale interview especially the cloud group is tougher. Other ones were ok and not as tough. However, maybe they increase difficulty year over year. A bit of luck is also needed.

      Not getting the optimal solution or finishing code is an automatic rejection

      That’s not true.. I passed HC not finishing second part of a question and only solving one problem in another.

    Sunnyvale as in GCP? GCP might have more international who tend to be more brutal.
