    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen from recruiter followed by phone interview with hiring manager. Notified a few days later re availability for all-day in-person interviews (4-6 1:1 interviews) in Redmond. Tough interview and thoughtful questions. Best thing was that everyone was really nice and professional. Recommend preparing thoroughly based on job description. Suggest wearing dressy business casual (no suits, but no jeans). Overall process from online application to outcome was about 6 weeks.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Durham, NC) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The process was laid back. My interviewer was dressed casually and provided an inviting environment in which we had a conversation. He started out asking me a few overview questions and used my resume as a framework for hearing more about my experience. It was a good feel for what working in the company would be like - collaborative and open.

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview

    Great interview process, there were several interviewers but they were all well coordinated so no overlap of questions. The last rung is the As Appropriate who is usually the skip level manager, so if you get to that person, consider you are faring well!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    7 interviews with 5 marketing managers, 1 director, and a GM. Each interview was 60 minutes. Questions varied significantly with some based on fit and others experience and skills. Interviews were direct and open. The role had many stakeholders and all were involved in the loop. It's critics to have subject matter expertise and examples of past programs.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Microsoft (Seattle, WA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Really odd process - it just very randomly and suddenly ended with no warning. I was basically left in the reception area without further instructions. I asked the receptionist what to do and she didn't know anything. I sat there for a while, hoping the recruiter would return or call me (or anything). Nothing happened and I never received replies to my email asking what had happened.
