Project Manager Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redmond, WA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redmond, WA
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Microsoft in November 2012.

Interview Details

My first interview was on my college campus. Here you're interviewed for any of the three spots for software development internships. Then after you make it past the first round, they fly you out to their campus in Redmond, WA for the second round of interviewing. At this point you are given a specific position you are applying for (in my case, project manager intern). All expenses are paid: travel, hotel, food, and even some spending money for tourism. While there, you interview with three or four different people. Each interview is one on one and for about an hour each. and you are asked a variety of questions. For project manager intern, I was given a design question at each interview, with either coding or problem solving questions to go with them.

Interview Questions
  • Each interview had a design question where you really have to think about what the customer might need or want to see. One example is designing software for professors mentoring students who are about to fail out of college. You need to think about what will help the professors know how to help the students, what information they might need to see, how to check improvement, etc.   Answer Question

    Got past the first round fairly quickly; made a very good connection with the interviewer. The coding question was very easy. Second interview -- the interviewer didn't look at me for 10 minutes then asked about servers, and NO design questions (??)
