Technician Lead lll Eazy going love to teach (Current Employee), MTV CA – February 10, 2014
Pros: free food! all you can eat, what ever you want to eat, when ever you want to eat
Cons: you eat to much.
Typical work day will consist of pass downs picking up wear swing left off basic PM walk through ect. I have learned so much from the wonderful people at Google . It is a place of never ending knowledge fun happiness. I am proud and fortune to be a part of a place you actually enjoy breaking a sweat fore everyday. Iv taught new hires and up coming technicians – more... the proper procedures and technical skills needed to preform tech ll duties The great people I have met in my two years here have inspired me to better my education and follow what once was a dream. The reason I rated management low was due to their chain of command, there is none, employee hand book states all employees that have been promoted must wait a period of at least 6 to 8 mounts and management positions a degree / work experience is required before an employee can be eligible to apply for a change of position and/or promotion. This rule and a bunch others don't apply to friends higher management. For example there are a hand full of employees have been promoted with out any experience or degree's, actually moved up three to four positions in less then six mounts hardest part of the job my I would guess would be when the rains comes most roofs due to new AC units and general people walking on them create leaks x a bunch of bldgs. is kayos. – less

Enter information on the quality of book conditions. Operated business machines fax, copy printers,copy machine, and phones.

Me an my co-workers use team work – more... and got alone great. The hardest part of the job was leaving my co workers when my two year contact was completed.

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.

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.
