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.
