    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Microsoft (London, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Didn't ask any competency questions, focused mainly on my knowledge of Microsoft, like who the CEO is and cloud technology questions. Make sure you know a good deal about Microsoft as this helped me to pass this stage of the process.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Microsoft (London, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Recruiter disconnected call during a conversation did not bother to say goodbye and officially close the loop.
    Shocked by a lack of professionalism at MS Recruiting Team since not long ago I was working there and experienced successful job interview, it was top quality interviewing experience from start to the finish perhaps because it was handled by an external agency not directly by MS Recruiting Team. Shame because this does not look any more like a top company to work for.

    Senior Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Microsoft (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The interview was relevant to the objectives and functions of the role. Main focus was on skills and experience from my past. I would suggest researching their products and people in detail and have a viewpoint where they can improve across specific products. Also understand where they stand against their competition and what they should and can learn from what the competitors are doing well.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (London, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    2 psychometric tests, Video Interview then a skype interview. Presumably the next stage would have been an assessment centre but I didn't make it that far. The skype interview was particular tough and given the opportunity again I would research a lot more around the board members of microsoft, their backgrounds and agendas.
