    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter for Microsoft through linkedin, which turned into an informational phone call, which led to an in-store interview. There was no phone interview. The interview in store was sort of intimidating, I was in a maybe 6x6 room with 3 higher ups taking turns interviewing me. About a week later I got a phone call saying that I got the job. I didn't have to have an additional interview with the manager, the people that interviewed me pushed me through to an instant hire. Overall the interview was laid back, everyone was joking and seemed happy.

    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.
