    Applied at my university career fair. Got an on campus interview call in a week. The interviewer asked 2 technical coding questions and was not concerned with the syntax of the code. Focus more on logic and efficiency.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview Details

    I gave Microsoft recruiters my resume at the job fair and they contacted me that night inviting me to a dinner with them and other potential employees a few days later. About a week after the job fair I got an email inviting me to an on campus interview. The interview said I would hear back from them in a month (regardless of the result). About three weeks later I got an email telling me I had passed to final round interviews the following month. I went to the Boston office and had 4-45 minute interviews over the course of a morning. They were all very nice and made sure to give time between interviews to recuperate. The coulture at Microsoft seemed great, especially with the changes being made by the new CEO. They are more receptive to open source and non-windows solutions.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview Details

    Over phone interview, all behavioral questions. One logic puzzle.The interview lasted app 30 minutes. The guy seemed impatient because I was the last one of the day. It went well, I asked him some questions to show interest about women in the company. His answer was kind of made up. Made up some stats on Google, which are not correct.

    Interview Details

    The process is clearly outlined by them - submit your resume, if the resume gets through you have a short 30 minute interview (mine was on campus), and then if you pass that you go to Seattle and have a full day of interviews there.

    Interview Details

    I applied in school career fair, and got an interview a month later. A University recruiter came to my University. He introduced himself and the internship program the day before interview day in a small meeting.
    During the interview, he asked me a question related to strings and pointers.
    After that, we talked about testing and refinement of the previous program.
    Another problem is about linked list.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Microsoft in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Gave my resume to a recruiter at a campus info session and got an email about 2 weeks later telling me to sign up for an on campus interview. Despite getting the only technical question wrong, I got an on site interview. The on site interview consisted for 4 technical interviews. It might be because I'm a sophomore, but the questions weren't very hard. All of them were about arrays, strings, or linked lists. I made a few mistakes, so I didn't end up getting an offer.
