Software Intern Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through college or university and interviewed at Microsoft.
Interview Details – Submitted a resume through the school career website and it was an on-campus interview. The interviewer was pretty friendly. The interview pretty much started by me introducing myself a little bit. Then he showed about a page of code in C++ and asked me to explain what it does. I did really horribly because I wasn't very familiar with C++ and haven't worked with it for a while. I asked the interviewer some advices and questions about improvements afterwards.
Interview Question – Read codes in C++ Answer Question

Software Intern Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Microsoft in August 2007.
Interview Details – Starts with meeting a recruiter at a campus job fair and having around 2 to 5 minutes to tell them about yourself and impress them. They might also ask you technical questions right there. I remember being asked "How would you test this pen for quality". If they like you, you get an email saying that you will be scheduled for an interview on campus. I waited about two weeks before my interview.
Interview day, I meet one of the team leads from Microsoft in a room for a 1 on 1 interview. Introduce myself, discuss resume, asks me about classes, then he asks me to solve 1 programming task. After that, he asks me to test the function I just wrote for quality.
