Zoe Goldring and Gretchen Ledgard - Riding the Recruiting Shuttle

Sign in to queue

Description

Here's the second part of "interviewing at Microsoft" with Gretchen Ledgard and Zoe Goldring.

In this part of our interview experience we meet Pat, a recruiting shuttle driver, who drives us across campus for our whiteboarding session.

The buildings she says she gets lost at are #1-6 (they are confusing to get around in).

We end up at the lobby of building 27, where we meet "Mr. Zoe" (Evan Goldring) who is an SDET at Microsoft (Software Design Engineer Testing) who we'll see again next week in part three of our interview process.

      That is a question that I would like answered as well..
      When you guys said "shuttle" i though 'Wow, a car that flies off of the ground and 5 feet into the air, wow!' I guess I was over exaggerating.. Cool Video guys! hehe

    Can you work your way up from shuttle driver to say.. Project Manager Longhorn?

    Marsella, I think you could. Chris Dias, for instance, worked his way up from answering the phones to running a large part of the Visual Studio team.

    arnix: damn, I wish I knew that question.

    Although back then they didn't have shuttles specifically for recruiting purposes. So, she probably rode around the general employee shuttle, or drove herself around campus, if she had to go to more than one building for interviews.

    The third video's my favourite so far. When it finally gets to C9 I've got some questions about it (as I'm sure everyone else does).

    Not exactly.  those buildings have pretty much an equal number of inside and outside offices.  I spent a year in building 10, and my desk was a test bench in one of the labs.  Guess they need somewhere to put the grunts...

    Even after having worked in that area for some time, I would still get lost in the 1-10 buildings.  I can pretty much find my way to the building 4 cafeteria and Lake Bill, but beyond that, I'm pretty much lost hopelessly.

    Back in those days she probably got taken around in a horse and cart between buildings Wink
