Journey to Google : Part 2

Google

  • Screening Round
  • They pay much attention to how quickly you can write bug-free code.
  • They ask you in detail about the complexity of your solution and the different complexities that you can come up with.
  • Always ask clarifying questions from them. I am sure if they are good you will get some bonus points.
  • Round -1
  • Round-2
  • Round 3
  • Round 4
  • Googlyness round

Facebook

  • Screening round :
  • Round-1
  • Round-2
  • Round -3
  • Round-4
  • Behavioral Round

Amazon

  • Technical Round 1
  • Technical round 2
  • System design round
  • Behavioral round
  • Managerial round
  • Google and Facebook focus a lot on bug-free optimized quick code and they have strict time constraints. Amazon is a little lenient in this context, they can extend the time, and somewhat buggy code also works fine with you if your approach is correct.
  • I have noticed that none of the questions of Google were directly from anywhere. You can ace their interview with a lot of practice. Comparatively facebook and amazon questions are directly from leetcode, geeksforgeeks, or other well-known coding sites.
  • For each of these companies, you need to be clear about what you are writing, you should know different approaches to solving the question. Don’t mug up any concept because sometimes they go in-depth and you may get in trouble.
  • Just a suggestion always keep few competing offer in hand when you are negotiation with any of these companies, that will help you a lot😉
