Account Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redmond, WA (US)
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redmond, WA (US)
Application Details

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Microsoft.

Interview Details

Initial screening interview with HR rep was done via phone. After successful completion of that interview, the in-person Interviews were scheduled. They were completed in one day, and consisted of being interviewed separately by 5 other managers in succession. Those managers then shared their hire/no hire opinions with each other via email. After successfully completing that stage, I was then interviewed by the hiring manager later in the day.

Interview Questions
  • There were no real unexpected questions. The interviews were professional, pertinent to the job and detailed. The best question was, "what part of your career are you most proud of, and why?"   Answer Question

    Account Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Microsoft in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    From my initial contact from the lazy recruiter who read from a script I should have known there was a problem. The recruiter called me one time and then from there I was shuttled to a "recruiting coordinator" who managed the rest of the process. There was never a sense of excitement about my candidacy or the job. The only person who treated me with any dignity was someone who was in the "peer" interviewing role. Everyone from there up proceeded to be difficult to engage with and read. I found myself trying to fill in the silences during the interviews with small talk and that was a big mistake! They are looking for robots, not people!

    Interview Questions
    • There was no true "difficult" question, just a lot of uncomfortable silences. Don't try and connect on a personal level, it does NOT work!   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview Details

    I applied online had an initial phone interview then was flown to one of their offices. The whole process was very casual with few questions even behavioral ones. At the office I had 4 45 minute interviews with regional vice presidents. It was really more like having a conversation they brought you in a room with one of the VPs and you just sort of talked about the company and the products. Make sure you know their new sales strategy. Basically they want to get people to take the products they have at work and bring that same interface home.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Microsoft in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    interviewed for account manager - cloud services. I know the product very well so no real issues, passed the first interview easily. second interview however I was given the task of role play as a sales manager for a totally different product that I didn't know. had to make a presentation and defend it. I did not feel comfortable and my guess is that this is the main reason I didn't pass on to the next stage. there would have been at least 2 more interviews if I ha passed, last one with the country CEO

    Interview Questions
    • the whole process is a bit old fashion compared to other companies like Google, Facebook and others. MS still believes in interviewing with the regular annoying "tell us about yourself" approach   Answer Question
