Software Quality Engineer
McLean, VA

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at MicroStrategy in November 2013.

Interview Details – Applied through on-campus career services website and cleared on campus round. Got invited for on-site interview and had three rounds of interview. First two guys were very polite and nice but the third interviewer seemed to have a biased opinion and he said "people with higher education are tough to learn as they already form an attitude". At that point itself, I was clear that I was not going to join the firm.

Interview Question – Mostly puzzles like those mentioned on this website.   Answer Question

Software Quality Engineer Interview

Software Quality Engineer

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at MicroStrategy in October 2013.

Interview Details – I went to the on-campus interview. A senior manager in the Software Quality team asked me some behavioral questions, two analytical questions, and a question about my resume, a project related to software test. Did not finish the second analytical question in time. I left my draft to the HR 5 minutes after the interview, when I finished it. Nice experience overall. Still in the interviewing process. Will go on-site next week.

Interview Question – How test a function that tells if three numbers can be the length of the three sides of a triangle.
Kept on being asked "anything more?" Had to admit I cannot think of anything new at last...
