Research Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Redmond, WA

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA).

Interview

Overall, the interview process was one on the best I have ever experienced. It started with a headhunter reaching out to me, followed by 2 telephone interviews, and the on-site interview. The whole organization of the travel out to Redmond etc. was very professional, very well organized, and generous. The on-site interviews happened on one day on the campus. You will meet with 3-4 different people for an hour each. If you do well enough in the initial interviews, you will be asked to meet with additional people (usually managers or head of the respective department) to finish up the day. Though I was pretty exhausted after this day, I have enjoyed each of the conversations very much. It provided me not only an impression about the people I potential work with, but also about Microsoft’s culture. Despite the “technical needed skills and experience” they look for people who will suit and fit the team. Interview Question They will ask a series of questions designed to see how you think, how you would solve a problem, your perspective about the industry, challenges etc. They will also tease out how you interact with team members. You will def. get asked “Why Microsoft” from everyone. Be prepared – check out of their website and what the industry is talking about. Lots of questions are phrased as “Give me an example when…..”
