Engagement Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft.

Interview

The whole process was handled in a very professional manner. The recruiter had initial phone screening, and then setup in-person interviews (1 whole day). He also prepped m on what to expect during the day of the interview. The interviews were 1:1 discussions, and interviewers where very open in discussions. Most of the questions were expected. I believe there were 5 or 6 candidates interviewed on the same day for that position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Microsoft (Cairo (Egypt)) in March 2010.

    Interview

    Referrals works much better, however, there is really an equal opportunity for everyone who applies to a job. All candidates are considered. The main focus is for attitude & skills. The hiring cycle, usually takes time, sometimes up to 3 months from initial connection. Usually, you have an average of 4-6 interviews varying between technical & management

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Microsoft in March 2010.

    Interview

    I applied for a position that has been posted for three months, and got an email the same week. Arranged for a phone interview or "Discovery Interview" which took only 30 minutes. The interview was mainly to discuss my qualifications and similar to other types of interviews I've had in the past. The Recruiter did not seem to know much about the role when I asked for more information. He gave very limited generic answers. Have not heard back yet, but I will follow-up within the week.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft in April 2010.

    Interview

    Process was driven very professionally by HR who took an active role thru out.
    I first met with the HR lead who then kicked off successive interviews with other stakeholders in the business. 3 further interviews were conducted. Interview approach was on the whole informal. Good balance of discussion between my experience, skills and my current and future interests.
