Services Interview


I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Microsoft in January 2009.

Interview Details – Microsoft has gotten a lot better at interviewing candidates. 10 years ago it was a bloodbath and if you could make the candidate leave, cry or whatever, that was a sign that you broke them and avoided a bad hire. Today the process is much more mature but still extremely tough. Microsoft has a highly competitive work environment so expect to be very challenged during your interview. NEVER say you are expert in anything....they'll find a real expert and make you look like a fool. NEVER embellish your resume, this will negate the process.

Interview Question – What would you do if you were out with a client, they drank too much and started tearing down the company, saying bad things about our executives, products etc.   View Answers (2)

Negotiation Details – Negotiation room is slim. If you can somehow get yourself a higher salary, you'll be place in a higher level and it'll make your first year a'll be swimming with sharks.
