    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Microsoft in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    In-store interviewed with the manager on duty. The majority of the interview emphasized the Microsoft retail store experience as an welcoming and educating place. It is an non-comission position with lots of team reward bonuses. The manager checked to see how familiar I was with the current product lineup and offerings. As long as you are familiar with the products and love to interact with customers, this is a great team environment to work in.

    Interview Questions
    • Since it is retail, the hours may not be as flexible as you want. It took a couple tries to figure out a well balanced schedule for employees who are also in school at the moment.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Microsoft in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Few days later received call from HR who did my initial interview then organized 3 phone interviews. Interviewes went very well from my point of view but then nothing happened. I tried to follow up few times but never got answer to if i was or wasn't fit for the job. While discussed general packages conditions never got to a stage where I actually received an offer.
    Heard rumeros of hire freeze but not sure if that was the resason.
    Generally would imagine that phone interviewes, while inevitable, are not enough to judge if a person is fit for a job or not.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Microsoft in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer was very cordial and it was a very pleasant experience. They start with the basic questions and then slowly build on that. They really cover the resume quite well and make sure that they have a clear view on employees qualities and skills. So make sure that you know every point quite well and there is proper story attached to each element.
