    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (New York, NY).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Microsoft (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Fun, they flew me to TX and had two next day interviews, the 1st with two managers who determine what role best suits me, the second with more of an HR/IT lady. She determines whether you will be hired while the other two guys determine what role is your best fit so you have to present on something you are passionate about. They just want to see that you have some passion and are excited about something.

    Interview Questions

    • For college recruiting, they WANT you to have very little experience, less than a year. If not they will tell you to apply to regular full-time employment and not through the college transition to work program called MACH.   1 Answer

    Interview

    It was really great, comfortable. The recruiter was really nice and responded well to follow up questions. I think that it really helped that I asked very specific follow up questions about the specifics of the role that I want.
