Product Advisor Interview

Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA (US)
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (San Diego, CA (US)) in May 2010.

Interview

First I received a phone call asking me if I was interested in the position. I agreed to meet for an interview 1:1 and then was asked to come back for a group interview at the end of the week. They group interview was different. They asked us to perform small presentations to the group why the person on our right or left should get the job. In the end they were trying to see if you could sell or not. Go in with an open mind and feel free to add some humor into the mix.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Bellevue, WA (US)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    A recruiter found my resume on careerbuilder.com and contacted me regarding a phone interview. I was asked questions such as what my favorite piece of technology is and what do I like about Microsoft, the rest of it consisted of her talking about the benefits of the job. About 2-3 weeks later I was contacted by a manager and we scheduled a 1-1 interview. The interview was very chill, we sat one bench outside of the store. I was asked a few questions regarding my prior work experience and my personal life(school,interests). The rest of the interview was about the training process and the benefits that come with the job, overall a very easy interview. As I was driving back home I received a call saying I got the job.
