Specialist (Former Employee), Carlisle, ENG – January 22, 2014
Pros: happy enviroment
Cons: long hours
A typical day at work started with me cleaning the area, in store where i was situated. Usually the mornings started off slow with only 5 - 15 customers in looking at my products. Then the afternoon got a lot busier which is when my skills of working under pressure came to be very helpful. I learned a lot about computers and tech support. Also I learned – more... how to work with strangers which was my main worry when i took on the job. I formed very good relationships with my co-workers on professional and personal levels. The hardest part of my job was that I started work after only having 2 hours training which meant 95% of the information that i passed onto customers was all learned from self study. I have to say that the part of this job that i enjoyed the most had to be the customers. I dealt with that many but i can still remember faces and every tutorial, educating session and sales pitch. – less
Contact Center Support Technician Tier (Former Employee), Mountain View, CA – January 21, 2014
If you are hired as a employee, that would be best. Treats contractors like second class citizens. Managers who are contractors have no idea how to manage a team the majority of the time. A very segregated feeling if you have a red badge and not the normal google badge. Great food and swag. Definitely a place to try and work at and hopefully converted.
Experienced professional with planning and organizational skills that balance work, team support and manages in a timely and professional manner.
Quality Analyst (Former Employee), India – January 19, 2014
Pros: free food, juices, snacks etc
Cons: absolutely nothing.
Before I joined Google Company, I was skeptical and nervous because I had no experience working in an office. The night before my first day of work, thoughts were racing through my mind… I felt worried about the kind of work I would have to do. But the manger and my co-workers were so helpful to me. Thanks to them. As time went by, I learned to interact – more... with clients. . . My overall experience with GOOGLE INDIA was great. Everyone is super nice and funny and the environment is very calm and friendly. – less
Scan Operator (Former Employee), San Jose, CA – January 13, 2014
work was really fun comfortable able to work individually. my job was to scan books page by page and all kinds of books even magazines. My co-workers were fun and friendly. The hardest part was trying not to rip a page because some books were so old and hard not to rip or make any blurry pages either.

Pros: free lunch, great team, great management, great environment
Cons: no opportunity for conversion
Was a contractor here for about 6 months. Have been trying to go back ever since. I had a great manager who was very hands-off and a great team (we still talk to this day). The pay was pretty good for how few responsibilities i had. The culture was great, tons of activities, events, free food. Benefits were free food even to contractors, free events, – more... popular speakers. Con: my job was only contract, no opportunity for conversion. – less
