Google’s Toughest Interview Questions

Getting a job at Google is surely a dream for most. Google is known for asking difficult and tricky interview questions. Sometimes the hiring practices of even the most successful companies can feel outright wonky.

Google has a reputation for asking difficult, brainteaser interview questions that challenge how you act under pressure. Most of them require you to think quantitatively and broadly, and test the way you tackle problems on the spot. All these questions were submitted to the job-community website Glassdoor by users who were interviewed at Google.

While some of these candidates made it, it was hard luck for others.
