    Entretien de Community Coordinator

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme - Redmond, WA (États-Unis)
    Pas d’offre d’emploi
    Expérience neutre
    Entretien facile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via une agence de recrutement. Le processus a pris 3 semaines. J'ai passé une entrevue à Microsoft (Redmond, WA (États-Unis)) en mai 2013.

    Entretien

    This was a job on a team that manages the online communities for several video games at Microsoft. I am more than overqualified for the position, but it's a rough economy and I need to pay bills so I was happy to interview for the contract.

    There were probably three phone screens with the agency (Volt) who had the contract before I spoke to the hiring manager. The manager was a nice enough person but he told me frankly that he was flooded with many overqualified candidates and there was no way he could hire more than one person. The interview was very easy. We just spoke about video games, community management and the IP he managed. The main feedback I'd give is that Volt did not even prepare me (in all of those calls and e-mails) for the correct job listing! I was told this was for one particular game, so I went out and bought that game... learned it, did my homework, and prepped myself with questions and info pertaining to *that* game - only to find out the job was really to manage that game as well as half a dozen other games that I'd never been told about and had to answer questions on the spot.

    In the end, I did not get an offer. He had a very large pool of candidates and I am guessing went with someone he could pay at the lower range of his budget.

    Entretien

    Went through several rounds of interviews, after initially speaking with the recruiter. The company is really big on culture and making sure to select candidates who are adaptable. They prefer someone with an open-mind and perspective rather than someone super techie.

    Only spoke over the phone, contact was polite. Interview mostly focused on technical questions. I thought the questions were fair. There were particularly interested in my .net experience which isn't as strong, but the person on the phone was accommodating.

    Entretien

    A set of two interviews for the first round. They asked mind puzzle questions as well as more practical questions. They did not care what language you did your practical questions in but the questions were worded specifically, leaving out important information that you needed to ask the interviewer for clarification on.

    The hiring process took over three months. There was 5 people doing the interviews. The interviews themselves are not that bad. They do like to try to get you upset and see how you handle it.

    Entretien de Assistant Store Manager

    Employé anonyme - Arlington, VA (États-Unis)
    Offre acceptée
    Expérience neutre
    Entretien facile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris +2 mois. J'ai passé une entrevue à Microsoft (Arlington, VA (États-Unis)) en mars 2012.

    Entretien

    Sourced the position through LinkedIn. Did three phone and one in-person interviews, all of which were a breeze. I should have asked more pointed questions about the culture, since I had been warned by other people in the tech biz not to work there, but I was so exited to work for Microsoft that I didn't.

    The background check was exhaustive and I ended up having to fax W-2's from 12 years ago to prove one of my employers. I know from several people that the company definitely called and was thorough in questioning background.

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    • There were no difficult questions. The company is big into volunteerism and will ask where you volunteer (if you don't, then don't bother to apply).   Répondre à cette question

    Négociation

    Salaries are on a matrix so (at least on the retail division) there is no room for negotiation.
