I said I don’t know to a few questions and got an offer. I think it’s really about being structured and thoughtful in your responses

And don’t ramble, conclude your thinking and solution concisely.

Don’t worry. It’s more about the substance and if you answered the questions well. The delivery could have been better but people understand that you’re under pressure and nervous.

I got every question...was easier than I expected. But I'm special....or at least my mom tells me that Don't worry ...it's about how you structure the problems.

I think we’re always a lot harder on ourselves than others are on us! I’m sure you did way better than you’re giving yourself credit for. Good luck!

lol… I thought I could’ve done better on 75% of questions and had to say “I don’t know “ to 2 questions. Still got an offer though so it probably doesn’t matter that much.

Nope. First interview went great. There was a really natural flow. Second interview I felt like I was getting nothing from the interviewer which made me fumble over some questions. I really feed off peoples energy and Try to make interviews more conversational, but I was nervous that it didn’t flow and my star method felt jumbled. Third interview went great. So, in conclusion, if you don’t think you did AMAZING in one interview, you may be fine!!!!! I got an offer so I am still hopeful for u! ☺️

What were the questions / what was the role ?

We went through the whole range of Pm to tech questions. The tech questions are set up so you will have to figure out how some tech works on the fly. To this day we take the same approach on interviews. Most people fail because they don't understand the underlying fundamentals of how tech works or how to manage teams, communication, or run projects

Surprised to not see this answer yet - You can expect Google interviews to take you to a point of failure. The point here isn't having all the answers, but to understand how you think / act / perform under pressure. The measuring stick here isn't that you arrived at the wrong answer. A good interviewer will keep asking why until you reach that point. A good indication that things went well is if you're drilling into questions 3-4 layers ("why?") deep.

like

Yes....going 3-4 levels deep is super key. Great thing to point out.
