Entretien de Program Manager Intern

Candidat à l'entretien anonyme - Bellevue, WA (États-Unis)
Aucune offre d'embauche
Expérience positive
Entretien dificile

Candidature

J'ai postulé via un établissement de l'enseignement supérieur ou universitaire.. Le processus a pris 6 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Microsoft (Bellevue, WA (États-Unis)) en avril 2014.

Entretien

My initial interview was at my university's campus and lasted approximately 30 minutes. My interviewer was 20 minutes late.. He asked me two questions: 1) What is the biggest technical challenge that you are proud of overcoming? 2) How many elevators do you need for a building (after asking some questions, the building is 40 floors - first 10 floors are retail, the next 20 are corporate, and the top 10 are residential)? 4 weeks later, I finally heard from an interview scheduler that I've made it to the final round interview in Redmond, WA. I had a pending offer so they worked with me to get up there as quickly as possible. They covered everything including airfare, rental car, food, and lodging so that was nice. On interview day, I first spoke with my recruiter for less than 10 minutes. I was rushed to the Bellevue office because of the time it took to get there. I ended up hanging in the waiting room for 30 minutes before I was called. The first interviewer asked me a few questions about my resume and then two technical-ish questions. First one was how would I improve the elevator and the second was to write a program to find the area of the intersection of two rectangles. I didn't have any breaks in between any of my interviews. The second interviewer asked me detailed questions about a project on my resume. He then gave me a scenario with a manager, a dev team, and a customer group. The manager wants me, the PM, to increase revenue by $1mil however way I can. The customer wants to increase by $2mil but they will provide resources. The dev team says that they can do $1mil but it won't be immediate. How do you handle the situation? I guess the main point was to notice that the $2mil is actually not better than $1mil because they will be providing more workers than the dev team would've. I didn't make that realization so that probably is where I lost the position. The next interviewer was late by about 15 min (so I guess I did get some break). We ate lunch and just talked about what I like about Bing and what I don't like and random stuff like what I do for fun. We then went back to his office and talked about things on my resume. He then asked me how I would improve the elevator there. They seem to really like questions about elevators. He then told me that I was done for the day and could head back to the recruiting building. I knew at that point I didn't get it since I only got 3 interviews. They got back to me the next day via email that I didn't get it. Overall, it was a good experience and I hope to try again for full-time in the future.

    Phone screen, on campus interviews, then on-site. Pretty standard process. Asked many questions about designing things. I thought that it was important to ask questions back.

    The technical questions were fairly easy. Standard recursion questions, and tree traversing.

    Final round interviews were 45 min each. There were three of them.

    Entretien

    I submitted my name at an on-campus job fair, and later followed up by applying online. I was contacted via email within 2 weeks about scheduling an in-person, on-campus interview. The on-campus interview was with an experienced software engineer, and was scheduled to last 30 minutes. It lasted a little longer than that (35 minutes?).

    Entretien

    I attended an information session given by my university's Microsoft recruiter. I met her afterwards, gave her my resume, and was informed a few months later that I was to be scheduled with a preliminary interview. I met with a gentleman for 45 minutes and he asked me fairly easy questions: how would I reverse a string, how would I design a high-level game, and just to talk about my leadership experience. After that, I received an email informing me that I would be flown to Redmond and accommodated for a few days while I had an onsite interview at the Microsoft HQ. The experience was incredible - the campus is gorgeous and the people were brilliant. I was interviewing for the OCS team in Office, and met with three different interviewers throughout the day. Each interview, typically, lasted around 45 minutes and had me answering one design question and a shorter, more abstract algorithm question. The questions weren't too tough, but I could've done better. Just more things to learn!

    First on-campus interview, I was asked to talk about past experiences. Then on-site interviews with 3 people. First one asked me a design question and the second interviewer asked me a coding question. The third interviewer just talked about the company and my past experiences and we did the interview during lunch time.

    Entretien

    On-campus interview that lasted about 25 minutes. Was asked to talk about a few things on my resume, and then to write a code to remove duplicates from an array. Didn't feel very good about the coding session--my answer seemed inefficient.

    Apparently they agreed that I was better at talking than I was at coding, as they asked me to fly out for the PM role. Once there, I was placed in an interview group of ~20 other candidates. One thing that was strange about our experience was that instead of the typical variable number of interviews, we were all given 4 (and told that we would be). They also guaranteed us results after lunch, which was both a relief and extra stressful.

    Interview one: we chatted for a while and then talked through a problem regarding system updates and server communication (the keys to this one were asking questions that made clear what each party knew and also understanding the priorities of the different updates).

    Interview two: My worst interview. Talked about solving Seattle's traffic problems (a "see how you think" kind of problem) and then had a shortest-path algorithm variant. I picked a poor approach for the latter but corrected myself with a simpler and cleaner answer before the interview was over.

    Interview three: Write an algorithm to solve a NYT-style cryptogram (actually I have no idea if these are real or not--I have never heard of them). Then, design an app. Then, make money off of it (ads don't count). A really fun interview, as he and I kept building off each other's ideas.

    Interview four: Design a parking lot system (with some additional specifications). The keys were A) to not overcomplicate things, as the users crave simplicity, not technology, and B) to recognize that ultimately the system isn't worth implementing from management's standpoint, since the improvements wouldn't affect productivity.

    We went to lunch, and then came back to learn our fates!

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    • Didn't expect the cryptogram question, since it had more technical aspects than I was expecting given the first couple of interviews.   Répondre à cette question

    Négociation

    They have a set salary for PM interns (which differs from that of the other intern positions), so no negotiation.

    J'ai postulé via un établissement de l'enseignement supérieur ou universitaire.. Le processus a pris 8 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Microsoft (Seattle, WA (États-Unis)) en décembre 2013.

    Entretien

    Interviewed on-campus for my 1st round.

    After that, they responded after almost a 4 weeks, stating that I had been selected and was invited to the Redmond campus. They also sent a few other emails which took care of different things like transportation, accommodations (for those who need them), etc.

    During this time, I wasn't informed about the team I would be interviewing with.

    On the interview day, the entire process was pretty smooth and on time.

    I was asked to report to the office by 11:30 AM for check in (Building 111). Once there, they took care of all our bags/ belongings and we were free to mingle with other, try out the xbox in the lounge and do other stuff.

    At 11:30 AM, we were taken for a short 5 minute walk to the cafeteria, and were given $10 single-use-coupons for lunch.
    We returned to the lounge back after that and our interviews started at 1:00 PM.

    The interview process:

    We had 4 rounds, 45 minutes each, with a break 10 minutes in between them.

    For me, all 4 were design questions.

    Questions:

    1. The general ones: tell me about yourself, why MSFT, etc.
    2. Design a rubix cube app for a mobile phone.
    3. Design an app for the game Boggle for a tablet.
    4. Design a university book store website.
    5. Design a To-Do list app. Choose the device and explain your choice.
