    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview

    I have had lots of interviews, get offers 90% of time and never failed a first round.
    But this time the on campus interview is more frustrating than ever.
    They sent a program manager to ask me technical questions who finds standard DP "very hard to follow" and has very little knowledge of system level stuff.
    so guys, my advice is to sign up an interview with an engineer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Microsoft (West Lafayette, IN) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Microsoft showed up at my college's CS career fair. As a freshman it was the first company I tried talking to. After a few words they tossed my resume in a pile and moved me on my way. I then was shocked after finding them so indifferent to find an email asking for an interview. The actual interview was a mix of personal questions (why are you interested in software? computers? Microsoft? How did you get into CS?) and simple technical questions (write a function computing a factorial)
