Marketing Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Redmond, WA (US)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA (US)).

Interview

I had a phone screen followed by onsite interviews. I interviewed with two different teams. The first team was clearly not a match and it appeared they felt the same. The second interview team was better and they added additional interviewers on at the end. I also did a final interview with a member of the team that wasn't present by phone the day after I flew home.

Interview Questions

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA (US)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Preliminary phone screen with recruiter, then two phone interviews with the hiring manager and a key stakeholder (each approximately 1 hour).

    I was then flown to Redmond for a 7-hour interview across two campuses. The interview was long, of course, but the questions were not terribly challenging.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA (US)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen from recruiter followed by phone interview with hiring manager. Notified a few days later re availability for all-day in-person interviews (4-6 1:1 interviews) in Redmond. Tough interview and thoughtful questions. Best thing was that everyone was really nice and professional. Recommend preparing thoroughly based on job description. Suggest wearing dressy business casual (no suits, but no jeans). Overall process from online application to outcome was about 6 weeks.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Durham, NC (US)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The process was laid back. My interviewer was dressed casually and provided an inviting environment in which we had a conversation. He started out asking me a few overview questions and used my resume as a framework for hearing more about my experience. It was a good feel for what working in the company would be like - collaborative and open.

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview

    Great interview process, there were several interviewers but they were all well coordinated so no overlap of questions. The last rung is the As Appropriate who is usually the skip level manager, so if you get to that person, consider you are faring well!
