Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA

Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (San Diego, CA) in May 2010.

Interview

First I received a phone call asking me if I was interested in the position. I agreed to meet for an interview 1:1 and then was asked to come back for a group interview at the end of the week. They group interview was different. They asked us to perform small presentations to the group why the person on our right or left should get the job. In the end they were trying to see if you could sell or not. Go in with an open mind and feel free to add some humor into the mix.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Hiring/interviewing is fairly inconsistent and isn't explained well. Submitting a resume through the website doesn't necessarily guarantee feedback. Taking a resume into the store leadership is far more effective.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation for pay. They have set pay scales that they strictly adhere to.
