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

I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Microsoft in February 2008.

Interview Details

Interviewed with 5 persons one by one in a whole day (3 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon);for the interviews in the morning, each person of them first asked me to introduce myself in English; then in chinese asked me the details about my resume(studay, intern experience etc.); then asked me one or two iq puzzles; then one or two programming questions. If you passed the first 3 persons's test in the morning (there should be 2 or more positive feedbacks), you entered the second round interviews in the afternoon: two managers who are the head of the group/position that you have applied for. They asked more aboIut my interests and my career plan; also there were one or two iq puzzles. If you got positive feedbacks from both of them, then congratulations; unfortunately I failed the last interview. That's all.
