Interview process was very professional. I had four rounds of job related interviews and one HR interview. Questions were both analytical/technical and creative/problem solving related.

    Programme Manager II Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Microsoft (Hyderabad (India)) in October 2009.

    Interview

    The overall hiring process was really time consuming and interview dates were changed many times during the whole process. The venue in NCR was OK. I was finally called for a full day interview to their Hyderabad office. Types of questions asked in the interview were really open ended in nature and some where related to real-life with no right or wrong answer. They mostly probed on the thought process, ability to cover different aspects of the problem. Though the event was not well planned in terms of managing time but overall I consider this a good experience.
