    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Microsoft in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    First, got an email from HR for setting up a phone interview. HR gave a list of timeslots over two days and asked all timeslots I am available for the interview. Also HR asked me to fill-up a candidate interest form. After sending my free slots and the filled interest form, I got an email with my assigned slot and the interviewer name.
    Though that I mentioned 'Dev' as the first preference and 'Testing' as the second preference in the candidate interest form., I found out later in the interview that it was for a Testing position.

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Microsoft in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    I worked with a recruiter to set up interviews for an open position. I was provided with a list of interviewers and some of their information. My day involved 4 technical interviews and one with the "As Appropriate" person. Each interviewer has a copy of my resume and for some of the interviews we talked about things on my resume. Questions like whether there are specific problems I had to solve in my previous job, and also questions like what I consider to be a hard problem. I was asked multithreaded programming question, OOP and design question, general data structure, and problem solving type questions. Make sure that you brush up on the fundamentals.
