Pretty messy, I'd never be able to find the specific snack I was looking for... :(

Unless I could devise a way of searching for snacks by typing in parts of their name and having them appear in my mouth, categorised by relevance...

google has world class chefs who cook free lunch for their employees, they get nap time, they can bring their pets to work, they have a huge on site gym, they have those lil scooter things u can ride around on their campus, and a whole bunch of other cool stuff, plus the pay and benefits are other wordly...

i know 2 google employees and one person who interned
i dont think there is a better employer than google

Sounds very claustrophobic; do they allow you to leave the building for a personal life? :) (just jealous)

And that's why they receive 150,000 resumes a month...

Pft, one day, when I'm CFO, I'll put it in the budget for the snack room be 40% larger every year.
by the time I graduate, google will be 90% snackroom and 10% search engine.

also, it'll be the size of oklahoma, so search engine will still be huge.

Yum pears. I saw pears!

I heard also that they get about 150k resumes a year, my question is, how the hell do they go through them? Or do they all just fall to the wayside?
I wonder.

There's a fruit basket, and then the rest is all sugary, carbonated, salty, fatty junk food.

Brilliant. :D

The fruit looks manky as well. Look at those grapes! I would expect pineapple and star-fruit, quite frankly. :D

Well they are google, if I had to guess I'd say the HR department has their own mini-google for searching through resumes they receive.
