Entretien de Senior Program Manager

Expérience négative
Difficulté moyenne

Candidature

J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Microsoft (Redmond, WA (États-Unis)) en janvier 2018.

Entretien

1 phone screen and 5 interviews over the course of two weeks. Met with 3 the first day who were more senior employees than the role interviewing for; met with 2 additional employees second day which included the As Appropriate as the final interviewer. Having been a former MS employee I understood the culture. After having left years ago, I was less than impressed with how many of the interviewers showed more arrogance than other companies I was considering (why should we hire you mentality). Additionally, with this particular group there was lack of appreciation for think big and out of the box ideas and more focus on technical abilities. A few in the loop were great, don’t get me wrong but it felt like those few were exceptions and not the norm. Didn’t feel energized to work there.

    Entretien

    Was referred and had a phone screening with one of the Sr PMs in the team. Was invited to have an on-site. All went well, until one interviewer asked me tech stuff that had no relevance to what I had done. Got dinged after four rounds.

    Entretien

    overall relatively straightforward job interview process. The effectiveness of interviewers completely depends on the individual interviewer. Oftentimes, because they have to fill the roster with diverse candidates you might not know if they are really considering you or if you are filling a quota, This is not always the case though.

    J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris 2 jours. J'ai passé un entretien à Microsoft (Redmond, WA (États-Unis)).

    Entretien

    Two days across multiple Windows Core teams. Questions were based on previous questions or a spin on the original problem proposed. They provided feedback on my presentation approach and body language with regards to future interviewers. Although some information was for MS eyes only, they told me about the feedback. Some asked why I was going for PM and not Dev position.
    They actually followed my interview guidelines. No silly logic whiteboard problems but real world problems were to be used. They followed this guideline which did surprise me

    Négociation

    Yes and very easy. They made the MS argument that they are a benefits company and not just salary

    J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. Le processus a pris +2 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Microsoft (Redmond, WA (États-Unis)) en avril 2012.

    Entretien

    good interview, total 2 informationals (1 telephonic and 1 in-person) and final on site interview with 5 people. It took a while to get all paperwork. The onsite interview was good, but tiring as it went on for entire day. You need to prepare well as you can expect questions from different fields. Overall, interview experience was good, got an offer very next day. The hiring manager was very keen on hiring.

    Referred by the hiring manager for role as a SPM on a BI team, leading the platform integration effort across the company. 1 day to apply, 1 day to phone screen, 2 days to in person interview.
    During the day long loop (5 1 hour interviews), it was decided that I was a better fit for another open role. Several weeks later, a half day loop (2 1 hour interviews), I met with the skip manager.

    J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. Le processus a pris +4 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Microsoft (Redmond, WA (États-Unis)) en décembre 2016.

    Entretien

    The recruiter was very distracted and took several other calls (from other people) while on calls with me placing me on hold several times through the two week process. The interview process was classic old school Microsoft, too long, too many people and it confusing since no one could answer questions about the hiring manager and the role itself except to say many comments about a would-be peer who is a rockstar. The biggest challenge with this interview is that it was not focused on the role itself, it was more about my past and future rather than what it took to perform in the current opportunity, which was not well described verbally nor did the interview really focus on the written job description.
