    APAC Trade Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beijing, Beijing (China)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Microsoft (Beijing, Beijing (China)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a Microsoft Recruiter on Linkedin. After e-mailing back and forth a few times, we arranged a phone Interview, and then another two following that, so 3 phone Interviews in total, then a face to face Interview. The person interviewing me face to face had not even seen my resume ? Seems like a total rookie move on Microsofts part.

    The Interview went ok, she explained the Microsoft APAC Trade program, I asked many questions about the Trade Program - the Interview lasted about 1 1/2 hours. She did not really ask me alot of questions, just explaining how things went at Microsoft, and me asking her questions.

    Interview Questions

    • She asked me what kind of job experience I am looking for, and how I will be a leader at Microsoft if chosen ?   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Microsoft (Beijing, Beijing (China)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    After six rounds interview, final failed. The position in STC at Beijing, I passed a on phone interview, then assigned three rounds onsite technical interview. After them, I had another technical interview and the AA interview. But even I finished this progress, still failed. I guess maybe I'm not good enough to beyond others.

    In fact, If you didn't have interview which not in the plan they give you, you was failed. Even you was finished whole progress, you still need better than other candidate.

    Program Manager Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Microsoft (Beijing, Beijing (China)).

    Interview

    Not sure if I am the only one, but the process of applying the position is not a happy one. The HR is not professional in terms of setting up interview schedule. I got last minute notice that the interview was rescheduled to another day with another interviewer, in a different location, without even providing the exact address of the office. There was no apology at all. I am very disappointed at the quality of the Microsoft's HR, who didn't show any respect to applicants.
