Google India Personal Interview Experience as GIS Analyst(GTL) 2011

Google India logoI am going to share my interview experience of Google ( Google India Personal Interview Experience) with all you.  I attended the Interview in Google India Office in Hyderabad on June 4th 2011. It’s one of the very good interview experience for me. The Job profile on which i attended the interview was “GIS Analyst“.

June 4th 2011 was a very big day for me since i was attending the interview in Google. I actually cleared all the rounds before this Final HR Round. I have done my best in preparing for the interview. GIS Stands for Geo-graphic information System, if selected we need to work on Google Maps. Since we need to work on Google Maps, we should have a thorough knowledge in geography. I learnt all the states and their capitals, all the Oceans, all the Wondres of the world, all the currencies in the world and the list goes on endless. I gave the best effort i can preparing for the interview.  I went to the Google Head office in Hyderabad at 9.Am in the morning with a photocopy of the email i received. The security people didn’t get the information form their officials that students are coming to take their interview, so we were not allowed inside. We Stood out infront of the Google Office for almost an hour waiting for the conformation. At 10.5Am, the security people got the conformation, then we were allowed inside. We were tired standing one hour in the Hot Sun. At last the security clearance was done and we were allowed inside. we entered into the Hi-Tech city, we need to got to 10th Floor for the Google Office. So After entering into the Hi-Tech city(Block B) we were stopped once again because the security people of Block B hasn’t got the conformation yet. So we are once again made to wait, but this time we sat comfortably in the chairs for 15 more minutes. After 15 minutes the Security clearance was done and we were allowed into the 10th Floor of Google India Office.  Finally we reached the destination we want. Even in the 10th floor we had some security cards(Stickers) printed with our name, we wore them and they took our CV’s and we are waiting for the interviews to get started. The interviews started at 11.00Am, and i had to wait for one more hour for my turn. Finally i was called at 12.00Am for the interview. The HR who interviewed me was “Karthik”, I went into the interview cabin and he introduced himself and the interview started.

First Question to me was “Tell me about yourself”, I answered confidently. He starred at my very long 2 page resume for few minutes and asked me the second question “Why was your academic percentage less?” I actually have a percentage of 63, which is fair enough. I answered the HR in many ways but he was not satisfied. He again started asking me the same question, and i tried to convince in many different ways with different answers, but has was not convinced. He moved to the next question ” Are you Good in Geography?”. I said, I m not so good, i am average. He asked me to point some states in India, North America, South America. I was half-strucked with his question because i am not aware that there will be this kind of Map-Pointing. I pointed some states successfully in NorthAmerica, and India and failed to do it in “South America”. I was even unable to answer some cities in South America.

After Map-Pointing my next question was “Are you Good in Math?” I replied I am very good in Math. He asked me some Questions in Math and asked to solve it, which i failed to do so. So my next question was “Are you Good in Physics?”. I replied i am good. The Question to me in Physics was like this:

Q: “A truck travelled for 10,000 Kms without Stopping, In the Journey of 10,000Kms which tyre of the truck(front/rear) will go out first. Which means which will get damaged more?”

I thought for a minute and answered that “Front Tyre” will go out first. The HR said I m correct. but he asked me to say the logic behind it, “Why the Front Tyre will get Destroyed?” I said him that it’s because of the friction, and tried to explain the logic. Unfortunately he’s not satisfied with my answer and i was gone wrong once again.

After that he asked me many questions like “Why are you interested in Google?” , “What’s the Difficult decision you have ever made?” “Why Should I hire you?” and many more questions like this. I answered them and at last  i was asked to write a essay on a Topic, I have done it and i was asked to leave and they said that they will inform the result to us through the consultancy(Rofous) we have attended. It was 1.30PM when i completed my interview. So the HR interviewed me for 90minutes, which is the biggest interview i  ever had till now.

I came out of the Google office and was waiting for the result, next day i was informed that i was rejected, which is not a surprise to me, because i know that i haven’t given my interview in the best way. I was not worried because i didn’t performed upto my potential and more importantly it was a very good experience for me for my future interviews.

So If any of you reading this article was attending for the same interview, learn from the mistakes i made and be very thorough in Map Pointing and in General Questions like Maths and Physics.

Update:
If you are attending for the same interview, here’s a detailed list of Questions which i got and the Rofous Written Test Pattren.

  1. Well I am a fresher frm GIS background & jus wanna know if they wer specifically looking for gis graduates or guys frm any stream!! 
 Any idea wats the nature of the job(Gis analyst)…. Is it sort of like database management of google maps or core gis or software development related….

Thx..

    Reply
    1. Hello maddy, they were looking graduates from any stream. The nature of the jobs is some If places of the clients are not located in the Google maps, You just need to add those places to google maps, it can be also like this, let’s say your home is not listed in Google Maps, if you add it, then the Google Map team will review and approve it.

      There are some huge vacancies in google now and the recruitment is still going on, since you are from a GIS background, you will definitely get selected. So attend the interview now if you are intersted. Complete details can be obtained from the below mentioned link:

      1. Hey thx for the reply!! Google is hiring for this sort of job evry now & then.. A frnd of mine, who is basically frm mechanical stream is doing the same in google frm an year or so…. No offense but ther’s no real deal in the job; I mean you’ve got nothing to learn in this sort of thing..but thats jus my opinion!!

      1. Hi Bharath, Can u give some information regarding interview process. If we are

        selected in any consultancy for GIS process, then what is the further step?

        Reply
    1. It completed in 2 days for me. But if you are attending it, the time will entirely depend on your performance, If you are the Top performer in Jam, your interview will be completed in 2 days, if not they will ask you to wait for 2 weeks. This means they will give you time for the preparation.

      1. Hello Mr. Bharat,
        I have a query and i hope you will solve it upto my satisfaction. Presently i got selected for GT process through Rofous software and Serco. I wanted to know which between them pays good and future is bright? Your sugession would be seriously admired. I have to drop either of them . I want to be a part of the best company so i want you to suggest the best between the two companies. Hope you will reply ASAP.Also tell me whether GT process has good future or no?

        Reply
        1. Hello Baseer, This job has no growth at all. If you got any other job in Hand, I highly recommend you to Ignore it. Both Rofous and Serco are not Good. If you’re looking for a Temp Job, Go for it. Just 4 days of work, so you can search for job in 3 days. Present in this recession period, I suggest you to go for this job as a Temporary Income source to sustain yourself.

      Percentage is not required for this job. All you need is good knowledge in Maps. remember that you need to convince the HR with your answer for the question “Why your academic percentage is less?” . So Prepare your answer now.

I don’t have any details with me on the Written Test. For Clear cut details please contact the consultancy through which you are attending for Google. Coming to HR Round, I hope you have read the interview experience. Prepare well in Map-pointing and be strong in Math, you will get the job.

    Reply
    1. You are eligible for this post. This recruitment is through Consultancies. The consultancy through which i attended is “Rofous”. You will be taken as an experienced Guy. I don’t suggest you this job, because you will be on the Payroll of the respective consultancy through which you attend the interview, you will never be on the payroll of Google, but you will be working for Google.

      1. yah but right now i dont have any job.. i thought if i get thru this…i can try for some other better job meantime working for this…already 5 months gap is there i dont want to make it bigger..already in one interview they asked wat have you done these 5 months and they were not impressed..if i can manage to do this job may be in next interview it will be fine to answer..i think this google experience will be counted if i attend for other GIS companies…

  21. Hey Bharath,
    Dont worry because you were disqualified in the interview. You wrote that your interview is lasted for 90 minutes, during this process the interviewer had checked your potential. Actually they want the people to work in the company for long. If they found that you were capable of finding other good job, then they will reject you. Even I worked there for 3 months, later joined in other Software company. During my Google interview, I answered him nothing. When I came to know that i was selected I got stunned. In this post what I observed is your writing skills is good. All the best for your Future.

    1. Hello Abhijeeth, I’m not discouraging you. To be frank, the first answer was a absolute blunder, You should never say to the HR that you’re interested in your own business after 5 years. Even the second answer is not great. Anyway, I hope you will get selected.

    1. Don’t worry Shashi, They will call you for client round. It may take more time that’s it, but in the mean time prepare for the interview. If you are concerned that you didn’t receive the call, I suggest you to please contact rofous team directly.

  31. To be honest this is not a GIS job. This job is for Google mapmaker. And there is no career in it as you have to verify the person information if he has entered in correct format or not.

    Gis jobs are for Computer Science or Engineering and/or an MS in Geo Informatics. and Experience with creating command-line tools with C++ and Python.

        1. Hello Anand, If you need a Internship then you can do that in companies like TCS and Wipro. But there should be a announcement for the same from them. When there is announcement, you need to apply for it and get shortlisted. Since you’re looking in development side, you can do a App in Android.

    Reply
    1. Hello Rahul, Congratulations. Unfortunately there is no growth in this job, after getting 1 to 2 years experience you can go to Blackberry Maps or Yahoo Maps that’s it. I don’t see a huge growth in this domain. Even there is no huge growth in salary, if you take this as a temporary job then it’s okie. While working here you need to search for a good job. If you are dreaming a career in GIS then this is not a good job for you.

  60. Hi, bharat i have attended an interview in rofous … i cleared jam and written my test but they told they will call back is it possible to find out the result.
    I have a given my resume and they have written GT on my resume and some others also they have written the same but for some people they have written MM. what does dis stand for GT and MM? what is the difference between both. If i cleared this written test what will be the next process how to crack in the test given by google will it be a tough one or an easy one

    Reply
    1. Hello Chaitanya, GT and MM are both different. To be frank i forgot the definition of GT, But for MM, It’s Map maker, People say that GT is better job than MM. Since you cleared the written the next round will be client round, You may have 2 rounds or you may have only 1 round in Google. It all depends.
      Round 1: Written Test
      Round 2: Personal Interview

      Be good in geography since you’re into GT Process.

As i want to pursue MBA with work experience of 2 years will this job will be useful for my MBA ?? do rofous people see only good communication skills or the aggregate???? im bit weak in geography so,,, im worried a lot bharath please reply me as soon as possible ……waiting for ur reply…..thank u

    Reply
    1. Hello Spurthi, All your friends might got rejected, but i think you’ll be selected. All Rofous look for is Good Communication Skills. Regarding QA or MM, You should have already know for which role you’ve attended the interview. I think you attended for MM. For MM Role there is no need to learn geography, All they look for MM role is good communication skills. I’m not sure whether this experience will be useful for you in doing MBA. As said for MM No need of Geography, Only GIS People need Geography knowledge, Any way just learn the basics in geography, No need to learn indepth. All the very best for the interview. Come Back and inform us a good news.

    1. Hello Tej, There is absolutely no growth in this Job. Even after working for 2 years you’ll get some around 2.5 Lakhs. I think it’s a very low salary. There won’t be huge pressures. Easy Job, Peaceful life, But No Salary. I think at the end of the day, What you earns is matters. People respect you by the salary you earn. Now it’s all upto you. If you’re looking for Job in Google, Go for QA, It’s better than GIS and MM. See the below link.

    what can i expect?? and what preparations i should do fr the nxt round??

    Reply
    1. Hello Nupur, The HR didn’t said till now what would be the next round for you right? Can you explain me more about the Job Position offered to you. I know the Job Profile of “Recruitment Coordinator”, But it differs from company to company. Few more things i would like to know is “will you be on the pay role of google?” Are you being selected as a Contract Employee or Permanent Employee?

      Inform these detail so that i can help you better.

  91. hi Bharat thnks fr the reply. The position is on the contract role fr an year. I have one yrs of in HR and hv recently shifted to hyd.

  94. hi Bharath, Sorry for shortcuts.
    I finally got the second call and i am done with the second process 2 conference calls on Thursday the 21st June.
    After the Interview the coordinator said me the result will come by Tuesday this week. And now i am so nervous more than the interviews..:P
    Will explain the interw process in details;
    Day 1, 19th june 2012:
    Round 1-basic interview (went well)
    Round 2-A more detailed interview process by senior HR (the same day i was said in the interview process that i am selected for the next process and will be called shortly)
    Got a call on 20th for the second process.
    Day 2, 21st june 2012
    Round 1-Conference call from US for 30 minutes (a basic behavioral interview went kinda ok, i was a bit nervous i feel like would have performed better)
    Round 2- Again a conference call form US for another 30 minutes (a detailed HR interview, went well)
    After the interview the coordinator said me that all the process are completed and the result will be conveyed to me by Tuesday this week. I have no clue now. Didnt heard from them till now..
    Any thing you can tell from the process??
    And i hope this time the mail is pretty clear sorry for the inconvenience before. and thanks for the replies.
    Plz Reply

    1. Hello Nupur, Apologies for the delayed response. Seems that you’ve asked it 2 Times. Your comment is blocked by SPAM BOTS. So I didn’t see it till now. Ok, Now Let’s get to the point, If you’ve performed well in the rounds in 21st June, You’ll definitely get hired because, you’ll be asked to take the second conference call only if your performance is good in the 1st one. If not then the second conference call wouldn’t have been for 30 Minutes.

      So I personally feel you’ll get selected. Coming to results, I recommend you to wait for few more days, may be until the end of the next week. If you don’t receive the response by that time, then go to the office and get the result.

      Please do inform the result. Fingers Crossed 🙂

  95. HI Bharath,
    Thnks fr the reply..
    But i got a very disturbing from the recruiter this friday. i am so worried now. i dont know what to do?? I am positive about the performance but cant say from the recruiters point of view. also i am not sure if company takes so much time replying back about the result of not. i am kinda loosing hope..:(
    The mail is mentioned below, let me know what you feel about it, also should i call her and talk about it or wait for a week.
    “Hi Nupur,
    Hope you are doing good.
    Thank you so much for your interest in Google and particularly for taking the time to meet us in person. Your candidacy has been put on HOLD for sometime and we shall be able to get back to you with the final result in next 2-3 weeks. Please let us know if you have any queries regarding this.
    Thank you for your patience.

    1. Hello Nupur, BAD LUCK. But don’t loose your hope. This can happen because of 2 reasons. Before i can explain them answer this question. Have you submitted all your documents correctly for background verification?

      Reply
      1. Hello Bharath,

        I gave all the rounds as i have explained to you. After that i was waiting for the reply.
        They never asked me to submit any papers, just got a call from them after 2 days of the interview (last round completed on 21st and got a call on 23rd) she asked me about my last drawn CTC that is it. and after that i got the above mail. nothing else.
        Also to mention my last drawn CTC was very less, it was just 1.3 so i dont think that may be a problem. they didnt asked me anything about expected CTC or so.

        Reply
        1. Hello Nupur, Sorry! I didn’t read your previous comments as i’m in a hurry. SO i asked you about certificates. OK, Coming to the point Your Application is on HOLD Now. It can be because of 2 Reasons.

          Reason 1: They’ve found a person better than you for the moment, But they feel that you’re worth enough to be a part of google. So they would like you to consider for future vacancies.
          Reason 2: The recruitment might itself be on HOLD. I mean postponed. SO they’ve put your application in hold.

          Please remember that you’re not rejected. So Don’t worry. Hope for the best.

          1. Thnks Bharath..:)

            I called my coordinator today evening. she said my profile is on hold they are reevaluating it for some reasons. She also said that i am giving you a heads up that if you get anything better before this you take it up. she said she cant say anything at this point of time, even she dnt know the exact status.
            Also if i see reason 1 why will they ask me to wait for 2-3 weeks, they must have said your profile is on hold why have they given the time frame that is my only confusion.
            I am so stuck, i always clear all the rounds and the final result never comes. 🙁

            Reply
            1. The reason might be because they might need more staffing within 2-3 Weeks. Well, Nupur All I can say to you is Don’t worry and wait for the result after 2-3 Weeks. In the mean time do search for other jobs.

        1. Hello Mounika, There are no Specific Websites for these subjects. Since you’re ECE, Companies will ask you questions mostly in Computer Networks, C, and Java. Be thorough with these subjects. I don’t see questions on Signals & Systems very frequently so Ignore it. Have a touch on Basics in Networking, Communications.

  100. hi guys…i read this post and rather creating a new post, im just letting you know what i experienced at google interview in my comments.I would rate myself in English as excellent in both speaking and writting.My verbal skills are extraordinary and my accent,rate of speech is exclamatory as ive been in london for 3 years now and came back to hyderabad about 2 months ago.Starting off with this so called google process..i was scheduled to arrive at 5.00 pm but i arrived a bit earlier just in case and they let me in.They asked me to be seated in the lobby and after 30 minutes they moved me to a different floor.The interview started at 6.30 pm o.O. I ve been told the Hr peeps were busy with some shit in a meeting.i was like alright no problem as i was happy getting more time to revise bullshit stuff.Then the interview started at 7.00 pm. 😀
    Till i had my turn it was already 10.00 pm ( omg!! FREAKS).Now ill tell you most things i was asked to talk about..
    The interviewer welcomed me with a frown smile(WEIRD!).I was confident that i would get through because of my fluency and people skills as i have been working as a customer care executive for more than 2 years in london.He stopped me at that point and he warned me about my slang.He asked me not to fake my slang.I then told him thats how i speak and i wasnt using a fake slang as i adopted it in london.
    Then he started talking to me about my resume.He asked me when did u last update it.I replied saying today.He then asked me why was my percentage less in my graduation.I was like what about it?I didnt like studying though i have 65%.Then he started off saying you are a science graduate and y do u want to join this company.I told him its because i graduated 3 years ago!! and i was into customer services since then.Then he asked me when u came back to india? i said about 2 months ago.He then asked have u given any more interviews in different companies.I said yes and i given the flaw which was acceptable.His next question was again why chose this company when you are science graduate?(I think he ran out of questions lol or he find it difficult to understand what i say).Then he answered it himself saying yeah you didnt like it right..(i was like Geez this guys mind keeps wandering!).Then he asked me y this company again>?(OMG FREAK!! i already told him!!). This time i answered saying foreign people find it really hard to communicate with call centres in INDIA.I know it because ive been living with them and people really cant understand most of the slangs used by foreign guys.I can both understand and well as reach their satisfaction by talking to them the way they want it.He was silent all this time i explained him things.I took a few examples to support my statements.I was perfect and going smooth all this time.
    Then he came up saying write a few words about ur interests.while i was doing it..he interfered and started another discussion.I think he wanted to see if the slang i use is my original or not.God knows what he was upto.!after some discussions about my store and stuff i continued writting and then he asked me to finish it off.As far as i know i did excell in every quality he was looking for.Ive been asked to wait outside and then after sometime a lady turns up asking me and 2 other guys to leave for today as it was close to midnight(LMAO!)..well then i asked her about my result and she told me they would give me a call when needed which i think meaning you’re disqualified! lol…
    I aint dissapointed at all…because i know i gave the interview really good..may be its because this guy could’nt understand what i said or donno what could be that stupid reason to reject me.!!!! Anyways i didnt had fun at all.. 5 hours of waiting is not a joke,being the first one for the interview,ive been interviewed last! hmm.. it was quite embarassing the way google recruits people..Did he actually want people who is done with 10+2 and Bcom? If so they shouldnt had processed me for 4 rounds and then tell me your graduation is from a science background for which we are rejecting you.
    Hell of a day..so if any google hr is looking up at this…i would suggest them to use their tiny brains in picking the right person.
    I would say dont put hopes on getting a job a google..u could just give a try as i had seen people whining and crying as they left unselected.You dont need to be sad because its not your weakness,its their stupid way of recruiting people.They was people who graduated from Harward and Oxford,Cambridge,My ass lol.If i am really so smart y would i work for you Google?.and for a payroll of 1.8? hmm…i know that im the one whoz looking out for a job..but still i had ALL THE SKILLS YOU NEEDED!
    anyways goodfight people.! adios! have fun! and good luck with your interviews..

    Project: A Model-Based Approach to Evaluation of the Efficacy of FEC Coding
    in Combating Network Packet Losses

    We propose a model-based analytic approach for evaluating the overall efficacy of FEC coding combined with interleaving in combating packet losses in IP networks. In particular, by modeling the network path in terms of a single bottleneck node, described as a _ queue, we develop a recursive procedure for the exact evaluation of the packet-loss statistics for general arrival processes, based on the framework originally introduced by Cidon et al., 1993. To include the effects of interleaving, we incorporate a discrete-time Markov chain (DTMC) into our analytic framework. We study both single-session and multiple-session scenarios, and provide a simple algorithm for the more complicated multiple-session scenario. We show that the unified approach provides an integrated framework for exploring the tradeoffs between the key coding parameters; specifically, interleaving depths, channel coding rates and block lengths. The approach facilitates the selection of optimal coding strategies for different multimedia applications with various user quality-of-service (QoS) requirements and system constraints. We also provide an information-theoretic bound on the performance achievable with FEC coding in IP networks.
