Microsoft Visa Evaluation before offer is a pain already !

MS Visa evaluation is taking ages ! First they kept on asking me for every god damned document that no employer has ever asked then they evaluated my case incorrectly ( saying I’m out of the US so will have to go thru H1B petition via Consulate Prodessing). I pointed that out and now its taking them forever to fix that. My recruiter ia not ready to budge until the Visa Evaluation is done ( all right ) ?

To people on H1B who have received offers from Microsoft how was your experience ?

      What as the decision of your petition ?

      Was Microsoft transparent about the process ? As in did they share details of the RFE and when they responded to it etc ?

      I was asked to do it before an offer was extended ... tell them you’d like to do it once you’re being extended the offer else you’re handing over a bunch of your personal information to a firm that may even not interview you let alone extend an offer

      Exactly what I was thinking, it's even more painful if you get reject after interview. Did they agree to you when you asked for it be done later?

      They didn’t ask me to do it before the on-site .... they did after the HM said they will be extending an offer…

    Standard process. Not optional.
    I guess there are lot of candidates who assume that Microsoft will somehow work the visa part out. They make sure you're fully eligible to avoid wasting everyone's time

      If you're a dev, chances of that happening are very less. It happened to someone I know who wasn't a developer, and they told him the reason.

      Please don't post the links in a public forum. It's called something else for internal, but same source of data

    So Are you in the US or not? If not then you cant come over until October 2020. Even thats a big if, considering you need to win a lottery

    I told HR my passport was being held at the a consulate for Visa stamping and was able to delay the process until I got the offer. Just find an excuse to delay it until you get the offer.
