Senior PM Interview

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

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Microsoft in January 2013.

Interview Details

Giving very limitted information - and they expect a lot of right details ( I was a hiring manager) - so know the drill well. We use to use it for "Fishing" / finding out what or what the canidate would say to find out how much he/she knew ... but now it is used manly to find out how little you know and can you do the job they want ( from HR side - you "should be" looking for a global Microsoft hire on values, can they work within company - not anymore .. this is now about plaing highly skilled people in very specific areas that have little chance to move around anymore due to group issues / policies / and other Sr. VP goals to keep or get rid of people)
Do direct answers - and give a few options of how you might do the work yourself but "don't dig yourself into a hole" by showing off or being too over top - it can be used in negative ways - be on your toes

Look for the most common way to do it, start there , then add on what you diffrent, better

Interview Questions
  • also, when they ask "what is the worst or you feel you Messed up at work - on - a project or issue" - this is fishing for anything negative - so answer very carefully not tto go againts you   Answer Question
