    Digital Workplace Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (London, England).

    Interview

    Initial recruiter outreach and screening call, followed by video conference call with hiring manager.

    I chose to exit the process as I accepted another offer.

    The process was far to slow. It took 1 month from their initial outreach to having the video call with the hiring manager. This stage went well and we both agreed to proceed, however if then took a further 2 weeks for the recruiter to respond to schedule the a green next step.
