Got offer from Microsoft TWICE but no team match
I interviewed with Microsoft thrice in the past one year and was given offer twice.
They sent me a congratulations email saying that they are moving forward with the offer and asked me expected salary. Over the next few days they called me and cancelled the offer saying that the position was filled by an internal candidate.
I interviewed again this month, got a verbal offer and they asked me salary expectations. Next thing I know they can’t find me a team. I am still waiting on hearing back from them.
The only time I wasn’t given offer I was told I had positive reviews but the team was picky.
Can someone explain this shit show? Why would they extend an offer if they don’t know how to commit to it!
PS. I am a Data Engineer applying for SDE-1 role, have a Master’s degree in Computer Science.
PPS. I never got chance to tell them my salary expectation, they just asked me to think about it and be ready. But they never asked.
