    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Microsoft (Fort Lauderdale, FL (États-Unis)).

    Entretien

    Hiring Interview was a pleasant process in General, not too many Steps. One of the things I like about Microsoft is that they push the use of technology in all fronts specially Microsoft products. Therefore two of the 3 Interviews I had were via Skype. A 3rd Interview was in Person, they were very respectful of the experience I had on my resume. At the end don’t expect a lot of Push back if you are interviewing for a contract position because you are very low risk for them. They will be paying half of whatever that same position pays for an FTE, without benefits, plus they can let you go at any time with very little notice.

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    • There was no such thing as difficult question; I did notice FTEs are so in to the Microsoft culture that they tend to dismiss a little bit any prior experience on Non Microsoft tools or products. (I.e. If you are a Project Manager, they expect you to have worked with MPM and SharePoint, period) Not much credit will be given to any other tool outside of that. The hiring manager even made a Joke related to my Android Phone..!   1 réponse

    Negotiation was very limited, since I was offered a Contract position, and it was mainly done by my headhunter. Later I learned there is very little room for negotiations when that is the case.

    Got an on-campus interview, asked me how to improve user experience for airport security. I talked as I went through several possible solutions and he offered alternate suggestions too. Got an email around a week and half later for an interview round in Seattle. Flied out, got in a nice Dodge Avenger with only 600 miles on it. Be sure to sleep good for your day.

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    • First asked about what services you are excited about. Then he expands on that... and ask other questions like designing a kitchen. For second interview, we had lunch and chatted about random stuff, then went back to his office and he showed me that app some MSFT employees made, connecting letters to make a word or whatever. He asked me to make a Data Flow Diagram (DFD) of that. I think I went in a different direction than he hoped for. For third interview, a guy with unicorns in his office asked me about projects I did and expanded on that. I probably did the best in this interview, finally asking me questions related to my actual areas of expertise (Database design and C# programming).   Répondre à cette question

    It's a first round on campus interview, the invitation was sent 1 week in front, you can select one section (30 minutes) in two days. The recruiter is very nice, discussed the resume and ask some general questions. Also ask you to describe a difficult situation you met before and how did you solve it . After that you can select one position you interested, then you will be asked some related questions. I chose project manager, so only one design question was asked.

    Entretien

    Had a 30 min on campus interview in which they asked me to design a phone for a 6 year old. The way design problems work is that the candidate is supposed to come up with several ideas and then the interviewer would steer the conversation in a particular direction, at which point you start brainstorming again. For example for the "design a phone for a six year old" i started out with reasons of why the kid would want a phone. Then the interviewer picked one and we continued the discussion on to features the phone would have.

    For the 2nd round in Redmond, I had 4 interviews, three of which were an hour long and the lunch interview was 90 mins. They will make you feel extremely comfortable and will be very friendly. The interviewers talk to one another between the interviews so make sure to make a good impression on the first one (not that they are completely biased, but im sure it helps).
    (questions they asked me are listed below)

    Be prepared to talk to them about your personal or school projects and how you "solved problems". List your projects on your resume so then they have an idea already and can ask you specific questions. All of my behavioral questions were from my resume - "tell me about the challenges you faced in this project", "tell me what you did in this project", etc

    ASK QUESTIONS BEFORE YOU START ANSWERING!! I cannot emphasize this enough. If its a technical question, ask what format the inputs are available in. If its a design question, put yourself in the shoes of the person working on the problem and ask appropriate questions. The interviewer will be vague on purpose, to see if you can ask smart questions and find out details about the project.

    Entretien

    Submitted resume through company info session, run by several non-HR and non-technical people. Received a 1:1 interview shortly thereafter,which consisted of several questions about myself, as well as a code writing exercise. The code writing exercise was fairly simplistic, a single question about transforming a roman number in a string into an integer. After I had solved the problem, I had a discussion with the interviewer for 30 minutes discussing the point that I had missed about twos-complement representation of signed integers.
