    I have some questions about the interview content considering I have an interview coming up fairly quickly. I am up for a sort of security analyst position (I don't want to disclose the exact title) and I've found some tips for the interview process for developers. I'm not exactly sure what I should be focusing on as there is a ton of technology out there and I want to ensure that I am well prepared. I do have some development experience however some of it is a bit rusty considering my current position went from development to paper-pushing. Can someone shed some light on what I should focus on more than not? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Dear Friends, I work for a big tech company in silicon valley. I was arrested due to false DV accusations. I never pleaded guilty. But I was arrested on a felony and DA filed a misd. I was all prepared to go to trial but my case got dismissed. I am very nervous now as I do not only have an arrest record, but I was also charged for the alleged crime, later the case was dismissed on trial day. Most big tech companies use hireright for background checks. I know that in Calirornia it is wrong under labor code to discriminate for expunged or dismissed charges. However, Cali is one of those sad states where your court file is always public. Anyone doing a county search can see it. Now some people may view a DV charge as a serious offense even without a conviction. I was trying to understand if some of my friends, though god forbids ever went through this situation and could still get jobs? I never did anything wrong but got scammed in a sham marriage. Now, I have a criminal file for no reason. Have people ever been able to switch jobs even after software companies saw this on record?

    Every business has it's own style. What is the office environment and culture like at Microsoft? Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers? What is a typical day in the life of an employee at Microsoft?

    Does Microsoft do Drug testing? just wondering if anyone had experience with this recently, everything I find is dated.

    Does anyone know how long does a Microsoft employee review stay on file?

    Just out of curiosity I want to know what kind of email Microsoft employees use as professional mail? Do they use ordinary @hotmail, @msn or @live emails (I think that's highly unlikely) or a special email? just curious I was. thanks for all your answers.

    It's always hard to know what to expect when going in for that interview -- and preparation can make all the difference. What is the interview process like at Microsoft? Any advice on striking the right note?

    I am trying to change industries, and am looking at HR jobs at Microsoft. My training and experience don't match the qualifications exactly, but my skills and experience can definitely be leveraged into some of the positions, based on what I've looked at, specifically--Learning & Development, Organization Capability, and HR Business Partners. Can anyone give me anymore insight into these types of positions, and perhaps also insight into marketing what may seem like non-traditional background?

    I would like to know if Visa evaluation (for people working under a work visa) before the actual interview is common with Microsoft? My understanding is, companies ask for immigration documents after selecting the candidate for the job. Some one with insight please let me know. Thanks
