    Interview Details

    HR is cool, on campus initial interviews are main but not only way of getting in... On-site Technology interviews are challenging as they hire only very astute candidates. Significant value placed on analytical thinking and 'brain teaser / algorithm' type questions - communication is important but not as big a focus as elsewhere.

    Interview Details

    Found the review via a posting on my school career site. Applied by sending in my resume and received an on campus interview. Interview was fairly smooth, just discussed the potential of being a player in the big data market and how relevant it was at this time. Had an on site interview at HQ which was also all behavioral. Process took about 2 weeks total.

    Interview Details

    Very organized and professional process. Initially started out with a phone screening from HR. From there on out, HR organized a phone call with the hiring manager, and then an on-site interview with a few of the team members. Process took about a month, but HR kept me updated with the process regularly.

    I initially had a skype interview through my university. I was selected for an in-person interview and was given several different dates to choose from. When I arrived at their building, there was a lunch and 2 hour long interviews. The majority of the time in each of the interviews was spent me asking questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at MicroStrategy.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone round screening interview. Followed by on-site final round; consisted of 3-4 interviews plus a lunch with analysts and quality engineering managers. They like to ask lots of brainteasers; nothing too original, so look up a site that lists brain teasers and explains them. Used to case studies / market sizing type questions for these kinds of positions and was surprised that they did not ask anything like that (e.g. preferred brain teasers, which IMO are stupid questions to ask in an interview).

    Interview Questions
    • One brain teaser problem was given to me with shapes on sequential balance beams. Had to find the weights of each object based on a given condition.   Answer Question
