Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Microsoft (Madison, WI).

The campus interview was not hard and asked mostly basic data structure questions. The "walk me through your resume" questions are where we spend the most time. You will most likely be interviewed with a person form either engineering team or PM team.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview

    Through campus recruiting. They had a coding competition, and had recruiters walking around listening to us. They asked for people's names later. I personally wasn't able to solve a problem, but I think they based it on the team collaboration. I gave my resume and was contacted for an interview 2 weeks later. The interview itself was at our university and lasted for 30 minutes.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume at University event and got called into the first round of on-campus interviews. Sat in a small room with an engineer and asked me some behavioral questions -- like the most interesting things I've done in class or any interesting problems I've solved on projects. Then moved onto the technical questions with me coding on notebook in front of him at the table.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (San Diego, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had a good ranking in the Microsoft College Code Competition and got the interview. Microsoft's recruiting is really slow. They gave me the interview very late, and now it has been 3 weeks since the interview, I haven't heard a thing from them. I may choose other company at the end.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked me to introduce my pertinent experiences. After that there was a very easy coding question. Give you an array, find the two numbers that are closest to each other. Return the smallest pair if there are more than one solutions.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Columbus, OH) in February 2015.

    Interview

    It was an on-campus interview, i went in to the building and waited to be called in. My interviewer was not a native English speaker which made it hard to communicate with him. He asked me a short personal question and asked what computer programming classes I have taken so far. Then he moved on to a technical question which was sort an Array. He did not give me much guidance and said to just write it down on paper and then show it to him.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by an hiring representative on the Phone. Mostly questions about my projects and internship experience. There were plenty of behavioral questions and no technical questions. I talked about my internship projects and how it felt to be working in that situation and what I would change about the process if I could change anything. There were a few questions about my classes and how I related to them. Mostly about my Data Structures and Algorithms class and how much of it I could relate to. Unfortunately its a class that I really disliked and could not say many good things about.
