    Intern Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Microsoft (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend and a recruiter contacted me in August. Despite my replies, I did not receive word of a phone interview until November. Did not hear results of phone interview until DECEMBER. And I did send a few follow-up emails requesting to know my application status.

    This year, MS has been swamped with intern interviews, over-scheduling themselves. I am very disappointed in a lack of professionalism. At this point, I assume that I will not be going to onsites even though my recruiter told me I did "very well in my phone interview". I wish there was less of a lack of transparency.

    Interview

    In the very first step = in the screening interview, I couldn't go thru after this. why? When they were asking about my proper positions and jobs in this company, I couldn't choose my proper 3 jobs in the currently opening job list, because my degree and experience was limited all jobs in the opening. Has to search all things, and has to prepare for announce yourself, previous jobs and what did you do other than in the resume described.
