    Former Employee - Microsoft Online Store Support in Irving, TX

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It's Microsoft, it opens doors and gets you into any company. Just with your background, you can be the guy who refills the toilet paper and red velvet ropes open up on other opportunities.

    Cons

    Bad pay, bad management, work overtime without being compensated. I ended up working here for several months often trying to keep up with the work and when I put in my hours I would only be paid for 40. No one wants to work this job while being told the pay rate should be versus what your actually being compensated for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was taught how to do the work but never felt like an employee, the culture isn't as inclusive as it seems, I would often sign up for community campus events and would be asked to do others work making it impossible to go. Participation in training events for
    Skydrive, excel and other lync meetings were frowned upon even if you did it on your own time. No real feedback, the most feedback I received was for another department I shadowed trying to get out of where I was working, other managers were much more responsive and friendly than my own. Trying to talk to my manager I always got the why the hell aren't you working speech even if it was before my shift.

    Pros

    Always learning something new. Lots of opportunity for growth.

    Unfortunate to say but sometimes H1B visa employees from India will only hire people from their Country.
