    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at MicroStrategy in March 2014.

    Interview

    Phone screen interview. The interviewer didn't give too much introduction about the company. I was given a coding problem on the screen which has a interface that is very similar to Leetcode. Also the coding problem is from Leetcode I think. You need to finish coding within 20 mins. It is a little uncomfortable if you are not practiced on Leetcode.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at MicroStrategy in March 2014.

    Interview

    Straightforward hiring and interview process but I want to talk about something else - All I have to say is this company has the longest and most extensive background check ever. The background check from beginning to finish took almost 3 weeks. Be ready for everything. They analyze every single word on your resume.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at MicroStrategy.

    Interview

    Told the last day before the originally scheduled on-ground interview that their people were not able to come. Did phone screen instead. Same process as mentioned by others: personal experience; teasers; what QE teams do.
    Some questions are widely available online; Some question didn't quite make sense: I was asked to be specific how I would test Google, and the manager didn't come up with clear instruction on what specific product and functionality when I asked.
    The manager talked in a speedy monotone, sort of sensed she wasn't in a good mood.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at MicroStrategy.

    Interview

    applied through campus recruit, questions are basically behaviors like what would you be in the next 5 years, why you chose this company. Brain teaser is the same old one. Crossing the bridge with a torch , two people at a time (1min/2min/5min/10min), what's the shortest time to cross.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at MicroStrategy in February 2014.

    Interview

    The first communication I got after applying was an email to set up a phone interview. During the phone interview I spoke with a woman and we mostly just talked about my availability with little discussion about the job itself. I then had to wait about a week to hear back if I could get set up for a Skype interview, which I did. During that part, we talked a lot more about the job itself and then I was informed that I would hear back in about a week if I would move on to an in person interview.

    Interview Questions

    • For such a big company, I wasn't asked a lot of questions directy about the job itself. I was also expecting more of a behavior based interview, but it wasn't. More of a conversation to to make sure that I'm not a crazy person or completely incompetant. For this interview it was really important just to be yourself and very straightforeward about what you want to get out of the job. This is an entry level postion.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MicroStrategy in February 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very long and intense. They grilled me on everything I had on my resume, work experience, and asked me to additionally solve case scenarios and brain teasers. It was a very friendly interview, but I wouldn't say easy.
