    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Microsoft (Reading, England (UK)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    My CV submission via Internet - there was a form to fill in but no covering letter option.
    Followed up within 2 weeks by a preliminary telephone screening From HR. General competency type questions and passion for IT sort of scenario.
    Next step was a 2nd Telephone Interview with the actual hiring manager, I have gone into more details below.

    Interview Questions

    • After getting a good feeling from the first 20 mins of the 2nd Telephone Interview with the hiring manger, including a comment that he was stopping the competency questions as he'd like to continue them face to face at assesment centre, in a passing / closing question the following was proposed to me..
      "Say you were in an Elevator with the CIO of your account and he asks you.. Cloud? What is that all about?" How would you answer him or her?

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with HR. Followed by phone technical interview by team member. Based on those results you are invited to a Finals Day, where you will be interviewed probably 3 - 5 times by different groups of people, most of whom are on the team you are interviewing for.

    Interview Questions

    • There used to be logic questions (i.e. Why is a manhole cover round) but those aren't allowed any more. They are also increasingly moving away from deep technical questions to more business-value questions (i.e. You have multiple customers. You have a presentation scheduled with the CEO of one, when you get a call that an Exchange server is down causing company-wide work stoppage at another customer. What do you do?)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Signing bonus seemed to be the area that was most negotiable.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Microsoft in December 2011.

    Interview

    I was called by the interviewer and she jumped right in. She asked me to talk about myself. I gave her the elevator speech. The rest were behavior based, with the exception of "Why Microsoft?" I was asked at the end of the interview was to teach her how to swing a gold club over the phone. I think that I did well because she giggled a couple of times. I found out 3 hours later that I was invited to Microsoft for a final interview. That will be in 2 weeks. I will update at that time.

    I was contacted via the linked in by a head hunter who thought my experience is relevant and I will be a good match.She scheduled the interview after a short phone call in which I explained my current role. The interview took 1 hour, questions were general on my personality and experience. In the middle of the interview I got a "hint" that I have small experience for this role and she will think of a different role, if any exists

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Microsoft in October 2011.

    Interview

    Was selected for an interview through on campus recruiting. The interviewer didnt ask any specific questions that could display my skills and experience. I guess the result was already decided on the basis of resume. I wasn't given the offer since I didn't have experience in the field they required (that's what I assume).
