    hired bu a third party payroll, later converted to permanent. Interview was complex. Consisted of 7 rounds, starting from written to technical to manager, hr finally.

    It took 3 weeks to complete the interview and finally got an irresistible offer. Interview was cool, very professional and was a bit lengthy but finally had a good experience.

    THIS IS FOR THE SUMMER INTERNSHIP
    The preliminary round was held online in select colleges and we were called for an onsite interview. Those with good thinking approach were also chosen and not solely based on getting the solution. There was also a coding round for those with lesser score in the online round. A simple problem was given to many students and we were expected to solve it. If the approach was deeply flawed, the person would be eliminated. The next round was a technical round where a 1-1 interview with a Microsoft employee was held. The duration was about an hour and was quite strenuous. Following the round, the HR manager will let you know the feedback and tell you the results. The HR manager was very encouraging and asked the eliminated candidates to reapply after working their skills. This feedback really made a very positive impact on me. The final round would be a HR round I guess(I could not crack the technical round).

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Microsoft in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    This was through IJP from within MS itself being a MS employee.
    Really bad interview process in MS - GD. I had to push the HR to setup my interview as if I am the HR. Than again just 2 rounds in the whole day from morning 10 to evening 6 and I was told to leave without any feedback. Again I had to run behind the HR for getting the status update and finally after 10 days I was again called for an Hiring Manager round which went for 2 hours and that too instead of managerial question the HM round went into technical stuff. And as usual again I was asked to leave for the day and no update till 1 month even after running behind the HR a lot.

    Reasons for Declining

    Got to know that work culture and the actual work is not good and also did not at all like the way Hr and the management treated me even before joining them.

    Interview Details

    They don't value experience, ask same thing to a fresher as well as to some 10 year exp guy.. Ask questions from DS, algo, puzzles, design.. No question from domain knowledge..
    So cracking Microsoft is easier than cracking TCS..
