    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Microsoft (Reading, England) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I applied for the role as soon as the position was open (October I believe) and did not hear anything back until January. At this point I completed a video Interview where several answers were recorded. After this I was invited to an assessment center where the day comprised of 4 main sections:
    A meet and greet to introduce all of the assessors.
    A 20 minute presentation slot (10 mins to deliver a pre rehearsed powerpoint and 10 mins for questions)
    A group exercise
    2 one on one meetings
    I received a call back 3 days later saying that I had been offered a place
