Each week we are going to bring you a featured employee of the week. This week is Missy Gibbs. Missy was born and raised in Kalamazoo. Her family and herself currently live in Scott’s on a little farm. She enjoy parades and being a soccer mom.
To mix it up a little we’ve decided to ask our featured employee 9 of the interview questions that are posed to potential Google employees. Hilarity was bound to ensue. Here are the questions and her responses, enjoy!
