I create this poll because recently I have been through the recruiting process of this four and have extreme good and bad experiences.
Would love to see if people feel the same.
Hope the relevant people can see the results and make some changes to the company.

I think bad recruiting process really cause the company lose lots of talents with multiple offers.

      Microsoft process is rife with personal bias. I’ve had well qualified candidates told by recruiters they weren’t qualified because they didn’t understand the job.

      That’s assuming they responded at all. I’ve had to find my last five hires on my own via networking. Microsoft recruiting is the worst in the business.

      I’d rank the rest as Facebook, Google, Amazon, pretty much everyone else, then Microsoft.

      Yeah I don’t know any hiring manager that uses recruiting for anything other than scheduling.

    Google is a mess. Takes months. Really messes with your timing of getting competing offers at the same time.

      +1, Google's process is a dumpster fire. We only get by in spite of it because so many people want to work here. That can't last, though.

      Sometime ms I feel like Google is going to end up like like size of IBM soon at peak time? I wonder when Google realize it is hiring too many and had to scale back.

      Doubtful. Googles bar is still very high. Amazon will be like them though.

    I'm still waiting for hear back from Apple in regards to an on-site 3 years ago.. I wonder if I will be getting an offer or got rejected... the recruiter hasn't gotten back to me yet even after I followed up a month later

    Google by far beats it. I had interviewed in May and got an offer in Nov and that too after so many followups

    I can’t believe Microsoft is losing to Google here. I haven’t been in the others. Google may take forever but compared to M$ they are angels. Brief rundown of my process at msft: referred to team, recruiter contact and I apply to the job on their portal. First phone interview is a no call no show. Nobody tells me and I have to reach out to recruiter. Ok, shit happens. Reschedule phone interview, goes well, move to booking onsite. Recruiter asks if I have applied on portal, because travel vendor can’t reach out until I have. Yes, I did when this all started. I get a canned “thanks but no thanks” rejection email from the portal that same night for who knows why. I re-apply the next day and am contacted by travel vendor. I have to send my resume to about three people. They ask for my flight preferences and then book outside of the time windows I gave. They only fly people through Delta which flys everyone through ATL, even if it doubles your trip time. I get to my crappy hotel room in Bellevue. For onsite, I show up and first interviewer had some shitty questions from CTIC / leetcode and I tell him I’ve seen them before. He has no backup. After first interview (and between subsequent ones) I am sat in a corner while the team goes into an office to talk about me for 10 minutes. This includes future interviewers. Yeah, that’s not going to cause bias... Top it all off with a secret interview at the end they don’t tell you about. I got a canned rejection email from the recruiter - I guess the final interviewer didn’t like me. I had seen his question before, too. Oh, and despite my expenses being approved, I never got a check or deposit. I was so done at this point I didn’t even bother anymore.

    At least Google doesn’t lose applications, resumes, and their vendors can talk to each other. And they always call, which I respect.

    Microsoft easily has the worst process. Had no call no shows to my final interview loop and a mountain of issues with just scheduling the loop. Couldnt even reach the 2 recruiters on the posting to figure out what was going on. I withdrew my application shortly after.
