Waymo Chandler. I was recruited by Genesis 10, a NYC staffing agency. Can't say enough good things about them. The interview with Waymo was held in one of their non-self driving vans. Two people are interviewed at the same time. One drives, the other carries a laualptop. You are supposed to critique the driver's skills quietly on the laptop, and note any/all unusual items that happen on the road, like a bird flying in front of the car. Or a pedestrian walking on the side of the road. Also, questions are being fired at you from the backseat by the Waymo employee who was available at that moment to conduct the interview. The passenger is told the next place to drive to. He then gives turn-by-turn directions to the driver. All the while being distracted by answering questions from the back seat. Upon arrival, you switch seats, and repeat this scenario back to the Depot. This takes nearly an hour, depending on freeway traffic. the Waymo employee also asks questions like, "Why do you want to work for Google", etc. If you're negative, you won't be hired. Praise Google and all is well. The hiring decision is made on the spot, and they notify the staffing agency within the same day. but they won't tell you.

Interview process was standard; I came in for an in-person interview after a short conversation via telephone. The questions were pretty standard and I later learned that they had come from a pretty inexperienced interviewer.
