    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview Details

    I had an on campus interview. They were very nice during the whole process. A Q&A session was held on campus the night before where you were able to become more comfortable with interview and the process. It lasted 45 minutes and was a 1-1 interview. The questions were very straight forward. Talk about your experience and past projects. Then a hand written technical question based on string manipulations without any api.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Microsoft in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Firts round of phone interviews, after which I was asked to partake in a full day of interviews in the New York office (4 separate 1 on 1 interviews.) After that round, was asked to go to Redmond for final two interviews. Each interviewer was a progression in title, and each was the gate keeper to the next. The interviewers would share notes in before moving on. The recruiter for MS was very helpful, and coached me through the process.

    Principal Platform Sales Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Microsoft in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    This had to be one of the most organized recruitment processes I experienced. I was initially contacted by their HR Recruiter via email in reponse to my online application. We arranged for a prescreen interview. At the end of the prescreen she book time for me with the hiring manager for a phone interview the following day. Within three days I was contacted again to arrange an onsite interview, which was far more interesting. I was set up in my own interview room (this was interview day so other candidates had their own rooms, too) and three different interviewers came through. They would target about forty-five minutes each and then they appeared to convene as a group to compare notes before switching to other candidates.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was ok with the Sr Manager of Digital Marketing himself calling to set up the interview. The interview lasted for an hour, was more of a pressure interview where they would ask a series of questions with an aim to gauge how much a candidate can take. I did pass the test, but finally didnt get the offer as they didnt want Masters candidate for the position..Wish they had decided before the process
