Just finished a product strategy interview. It was difficult. The interviewer's countenance did not help either ... Seemed like he was confused on what to ask me towards the end. Google seems to have a system where your resume is input and it spits out questions and that system failed me during my interview. I really want to protest the interview but I don't think it'll fly .

It has nothing to do with your resume. Google interviews are all set up the same way. There’s set guidelines that interviews follow for everyone for consistency and to develop the same dataset. It allows everyone to be evaluated on the same equal playing field. What would “protesting” your interview accomplish?

Whoa - the Google guy was trying to help out and then D1 comes in hot with an attitude...that’s not going to fair you well on the Googlyness part of the interview D1🤦🏼‍♂️

Hi Google - I am requesting guidance! I am prepping for my interview specifically GCA and open ended questions.

Is the desired outcome something I can clarify with the interviewer?
