    How do you define success in the work that you do?

      How to Answer

      How success is measured on the job can come down to many different factors. In asking this question, your interviewer is looking to get some insight into what would drive you and motivate you in the work that you would be performing in this role with Google. Prior to your interview, try to put some thought into what success means to you. Tell your interviewer how you see success and be sure to tie your answer into the success that you plan to bring to the Google team if you were to be offered this job.

      Ryan's Answer

      "I define success by my ability to reach the goals that are set out for me in my work. Being a goal-oriented person, I have always worked with my director or manager on setting the bar high so that I can feel satisfaction while my employer wins as well. I also define success as winning as a team. I thrive in a team-based environment and would look forward to bringing the ultimate team player mindset to Google."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "In my work, full-scale success happens when the needs of my customers are exceeded and the organization I represent is highly profitable. This scenario provides the ultimate win-win scenario for all involved and helps build long-lasting customer relationships that are built on success. In this role with Google, I would envision success to fit this same mold."
