    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Microsoft (Bangalore (India)).

    Interview

    Initially there was a Technical objective round. Shortlisted candidates had a programming round. Then they shortlisted few candidates for interviews in company office.There were 2 technical and 1 Hr round(namesake). The first technical round they asked about my projects.Then they few basics in java and asked me to code few problems. Questions related to databases and networks were also asked. Second technical round had few coding questions. They were looking for our problem solving ability and approach. The interviews were really supportive. They used to give hints if were struct during the thinking process.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.
