    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied via a job site, was emailed within a week to set up a phone interview with hiring manager, a couple days later another phone interview with another manager. And then the offer was made.
