Recently interviewed, and accepted a position in the Finance group. The process took about a month from Recruiter first email. I had a screening call with recruiter, then 4 back to Back interviews and a week later they reached out and gave me the offer. Hope this helps! 🙂

Can you share what types of questions you got?

Levels.fyi can help with the salary part. Microsoft is taking on a new approach for interviews called hiring committee’s. It’s usually your hiring manager and their peers/directs (not all, just 3 or 4), who will interview you. Typically it’s a month or so before you hear about a final decision due to all the work that has to happen beforehand.

That is a hard one. Internally, people try for informational meetings so that people know their name and their resume isn’t lost. I’ve never figured it out from external other than making sure your resume is concise and has the key words of the job description in them. There are a few “ask the recruiter” meetings in this app and that wouldn’t be half bad to join.

D1 / M1 - I have recruiter phone screen tomorrow. I imagine pretty straight forward asking about resume and previous experience. Are there specific behavioral questions or other type of specific skills/case/etc. questions I should prepare for? For either phone screen or the 4 round back to back interviews.

A tech firm reached out, and I had a 30-min call with a CD. Went well and I agreed to more interviews. Turns out the next round is a “4-hour panel WebEx interview”. Their creative dept isn’t well established, so is it wrong for me to politely say “4 hours is a big investment, can we briefly chat about salary range, title, etc”? I kinda don’t want to go down this road for a lateral title and who-knows-what salary. If it was a better-known in-house shop, I’d go with the flow.

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
