Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) I Interview

Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) I
Seattle, WA

The process took a day - interviewed at Microsoft in October 2011.

Interview Details – On campus information session. After a few days, they e-mail an offer to interview on campus in Seattle. They ask you to read a book 'breaking code' for the interview. The most important topic to prepare well for clearing the interview is Data Structures. There will be 5 rounds of interview in a single day 9am to 5pm. If you do not do well in a particular interview, you will not be called for the next round. Most of the people get dropped in 3rd round. If you are called for all the 5 rounds, you will get the job.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – They compete with engineers from NetApp etc, so if you have interviewed with other top companies, MS will offer 95k + location and joining bonus
