Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Boston, MA) in January 2017.

Interview

Short, 30 minutes interview. Mainly behavioral questions, such as tell me about yourself, walk me through your resume or tell me about a time you faced a difficult situation. Interviewer was really laid back. In addition, was asked some short marketing mini cases.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Microsoft on campus, waiting to hear back about final interview round. They said we should hear back in one to two weeks from initial interview to be flown to the Redmond campus. Submitted my resume at on campus career fair and information session. Got a email in a couple of weeks for a 1 on 1 interview on campus. It was my first ever interview, but the interviewer was awesome. The interview went really smoothly.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Microsoft (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    There was an on campus interview, followed by an on-site interview after a few weeks. The on-campus interview was 1:1, and about 30 minutes long. On site interview involved 4 rounds, with quite a few of the other groups of interns there. My guess based on the size of the program was that about 1/3 of the on-site interviewees ended up being hired for the internship.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard walk-me-through-your-resume, also asked for your favorite product and an explanation of why. Moreover, asked what your favorite Microsoft business unit was (or the one you were most interested in).   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Cambridge, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting, had an on campus interview that lasted 30 minutes. Very causal and nice environment. Half fit interview half marketing experience evaluation. They won't try to make you mess up, they want to see how you mentally approach each problem and see your thought process as you try to solve problems they present to you.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was split into 4 individual interviews. They fly you out, set you up at a hotel, and cover transportation and food. Each one of the interviews lasts 45 mins to 1 hour and the topic ranges from interviewer to interviewer. It's mostly behavioral, though I got one case-type question.

    Interview

    Was recruited by my school. There were on campus interviews for the position which I applied through our career website. I also had an internal referral from someone I know who works there. The first round was on campus and it wasn't bad at all. Make sure you know what marketing generally is and how to use segmenting, targeting and position to sell a product. Make sure you think about what products are marketed well too and know generally about MSFT products.

    Final round I was flown out to Seattle. It was 6 back to back interviews with different divisions of MSFT marketing. Thought I did well, there was one guy who really grilled on some technicalities. Other than that, it was a laid back process and the people were really nice. Didn't end up getting but enjoyed my experience!

    Interview Questions

    • If you had to pick a MSFT product and expand it to another market, how would and where would you do it?

      The guy who grilled interviewees really hard also asked how do you design a piano for blind people? Thrown off by that one.   Answer Question
