Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in January 2015.

Interview

there were 2 people interviewing for two similar positions at the same time. One of them was very intimidating. the other one was the total opposite. the intimidating person kept acting like he was the best at everything, which I later found out he was also human, and lots of mistakes were made. but I learned a lot from the interview, and the job itself.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft in February 2007.

    Interview

    Microsoft has a very thorough and intense interviewing/hiring process. You're interviewed by recruiters, managers and several team members. Essentially, if you make it past the recruiters, the primary focus is on whether you fit with the team. For some technical positions, there may be some specific technical questions, but “fit” on the team is usually more critical. You will be asked many scenario questions. Each person who interviews you will be expected to immediately fill out a review and rating of the interview. On some teams, if even one member records a negative or “no hire” rating, you will not be hired. Be prepared for a very long day.
    For the most part, those members of the company participating in the interview process are pleasant and professional. They have been carefully trained to not give away any indication of their positive or negative responses to the candidate's interview responses. They tend to avoid discussions of the culture or will make it sound much more positive and supportive than it actually is.
    Once the interview process is complete, the actual negotiation and hiring phase is fairly short.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They will negotiate but some managers choose not to. One of their negotiation tools is stock options in leiu of pay. Be careful. They vest at 20% per year and are based on the price at EOD on your hire date.
