    1 HR recruiter interview over phone

    1 hiring manager interview
    this is usually easy as to this point, the overall comment on you should be positive.
    1 manager interview
    at this point, you pretty much beat most of the candidates. just a few to go through.
    this is usually easy as well since the big boss may do most of the talk here.

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beijing, Beijing (China)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beijing, Beijing (China)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview Details

    Not sure if I am the only one, but the process of applying the position is not a happy one. The HR is not professional in terms of setting up interview schedule. I got last minute notice that the interview was rescheduled to another day with another interviewer, in a different location, without even providing the exact address of the office. There was no apology at all. I am very disappointed at the quality of the Microsoft's HR, who didn't show any respect to applicants.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Microsoft in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Had the interview about 3 hours ago. 3 x 1 hour slots with 3 different people.
    1st) Developer, 2) Another Developer, 3) Tester.
    Went really fast (or so it seemed) and most questions were standard technical questions.
    Not enough questions about me as a person. Just Q's that i should have revised more i guess! I got an answer pretty quickly because i had an offer from another company so they sped things up for me. Overall it wasn't too challenging to be honest. I just fluffed it a bit and had another job in the back of my mind.
