Difficult Interview

Developer Interview

Seattle, WA

The process took 2 months - interviewed at Microsoft in November 2009.

Interview Details – During the on-site interview I went into 3 1:1 interviews where I was asked a technical question in each one. The interview with each one started similar, by asking me about myself and general behavior questions. The technical questions were all asking to create an algorithm to solve a simple scenario.

Interview Question – When was a time you needed to give bad news   Answer Question
