    Software Engineer(Internship) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tokyo (Japan)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Microsoft (Tokyo (Japan)).

    Interview

    First step was sending an application online including a resume and a 3 page project description. I was then invited to an online coding test. After that I was invited to an interview in Tokyo where I had 3x 1h interviews with an engineer. Those interviews consisted out of a self-introduction from myself and the engineer, and some problems. For me, all these engineers were from the same team. I didn't do particularly well on neither the coding test nor the interview problems, but I got an offer which I accepted.
    I believe the main reason for this offer was the experience I had through my past projects. I don't speak Japanese well, but that wasn't a problem as the interview was held in English.

    Senior Network Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Microsoft (Tokyo (Japan)).

    Interview

    I was originally temp-staff covering for paternal leave but the person never returned. The interview process was about 13 separate interviews over the phone to the US and in person spread over a couple of months and then they went quiet.

    After three months of waiting, I was told they had hired someone else purely because he worked for a company that the head of the group had worked for and could I train him?

    I almost certainly burned that bridge, probably while standing on it.

    I am told the interview circus has stopped, but I am not sure I would want to go back, it was pretty rough being temp-staff and treated like that.
