    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview Details

    5 person loop with lunch interview included, they start out with basic questions about why you want to work there and what your prior experience is like, and then slowly start to crank up the heat on the technical questions to find out where you break. If you are new to the industry or have a hard time with high pressure high stress interviews then maybe you should look elsewhere.
