Difficult Interview

Business Administrator Interview

Business Administrator
Redmond, WA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Microsoft in April 2010.

Interview Details – Plan on spending several hours at Microsoft and meet with at least 5-6 people. The longer you go, the better your chances are at getting an offer. If you get to meet the "hiring manager", you can be sure that you are one of the finalists.

Interview Question – Be prepared to do real life scenarios, such as planning an event for 250 people, or moving and space planning for an entire department. They will want to see you ask appropriate questions and whiteboard your solution and answers.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Had to work with a recruiter, who acted like a middle man. The initial offer was very low but it is Microsoft and they assume everyone wants to work there (they don't). I was able to counter but really, not by much.

Business Administrator Interview

Business Administrator
Redmond, WA

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Microsoft in March 2010.

Interview Details – This was a series of 1:1 interviews throughout the day. I'm a full time (FTE) employee at MS already and am looking to change roles. Started off with someone who had done the role temporarily and established a good rapport. Had three additional interviews after that with higher level people--one Director and one business manager--who both seemed impressed with themselves and their responsibilities. Arrogance is not uncommon, nor inflated egos. Make sure you guage the fit of the group and its employees as you interview.
