    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pune (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview Details

    if you are a fresher, the interview is limited to algorithms (which will be scaled up just a bit in later rounds) and CS Skills. There will also be some questions around testing - just to gauge your inclination.
    If you have experience, add to the above some design questions too.

    Test Consultant At MSGI ( Service Arm of Microsoft) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pune (India)
    Anonymous Employee in Pune (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Microsoft in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    6 rounds, first 2 telephonic.
    Telephonic interviews were simple and related to normal testing questions.
    3 round: Hands round in which 4 hrs were given to prepare all testing artifacts related to a sample application(test plan , strategy, few test cases, bug report) and do a thorough testing.
    My opinion of 3 round: More of a school analysis, if you write more pages of test artifacts you can impress the interviewer.
    However one shortcoming i discovered about me was "Time management". I guess Microsoft or any other product companies focus on this aspect.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pune (India)
    Anonymous Employee in Pune (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview Details

    Via consultant got a call one day. Even the consultant has a Microsoft email id.
    The project manager in Microsoft is part of PMO..!! yes its true. They are not interviewed for any technology. The only expectation is to have formal knowledge about the project management processes. There are 3 rounds - First is to check if you have basic project management alignment (PMO related) Second and Third are related to real life case studies.
    Believe me, a development manager is not suited for this type of job.

    Interview Questions
    • Unexpected: Do you remember the Vision statement of your project/organization?
      Difficult: Any very simple sounding situational question which can get tough as the discussion goes on.
