Software Development Internship Interview

Anonymous Employee

Application Details

I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Microsoft.

Interview Details

Was contacted for an interview on my university's campus. Discussed my research and interests with the interviewer and received a follow-up interview at Microsoft's campus in Washington. Was flown to Seattle with a group of other interviewees. The following day we all were driven to the campus and taken to a conference room where we would be stationed throughout the day while we were called out to conduct four separate interviews. The interviews themselves were not difficult, but only after the first two interviews were any of us even told what department we were interviewing for (Microsoft Office). Since this had nothing to do with my interests or research I was very confused and when questioned, the interview organizer just apologized.

    First asked me what is the most challenging part in my programming experience and how did I get over it. Then a technical question. It's about counting the number of words in a string. And finally see if I have any questions.
