    Interview

    Applied online, was contacted by a recruiter to discuss qualifications then I took 3 tests. I have a disability. I could not complete the tests in the amount of time given. I never received a callback. I think these timed tests are are the company's way of weeding out ADA applicants.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at MicroStrategy (Tysons Corner, VA).

    Interview

    There are basically four stages in the interview process.

    Stage 1 is a phone screening with the recruiter. They will just ask you a few questions about your resume with a behavioral question or two and also what you know about the company. Nothing difficult and the recruiter is always friendly. Make sure you know what the company does and about their two main products.

    Stage 2 is a few online assessments. A verbal test (study the basics of English, very common sense), a design test (super common sense, choose the answer that seems the most logical), a numerical analysis test (if you google "numerical analysis practice exam" you'll find plenty of study material plus there's some pattern matching), and a HackerRank test (coding questions similar to LeetCode with questions about basic CS concepts). None of these are particularly difficult if you know your basics and study some.

    Stage 3 is a phone screening with a senior software engineer. They'll ask you a basic programming question (again very easy) and then give you time to ask them questions. Make sure to have some questions ready for the interviewer as this will show you have interest in the company and goes a long way towards getting the onsite interview.

    Stage 4 is a series of four on site interviews. A project presentation (something you've worked on before plus a coding question or two if time allows), a coding interview (basic concepts like trees and arrays), an analysis interview (brain teasers), and finally an interview with an executive (more behavioral questions). None of these are particularly difficult and if you've studied your basics then you'll be fine. What's more important, in my opinion, is that each interviewer will give you time to ask them questions at the end. This is where they're trying to gauge how passionate you are about the company and whether you'll be a good fit. Ask questions about their jobs, about things you've researched about the company, talk to them about any mutual interests you might have, etc. Don't hesitate to smile or laugh lightly. You can still make a good impression on the interviewer here even if you didn't perform too well on their questions.

    Software Engineer(Internship) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    First I got an Online Assessment one week after I applied from a social event of Mircrostrategy , which includes four parts, coding problems, design problems, verbal problems and mathematical problems. These questions are not hard and should be done within an hour. Then as soon as I completed all these questions, I got an email to set up a time schedule for a phone interview. The phone interview was simple and quick, just 15 minutes. And we just went through some standard processes, like her introducing Microstrategy and me explaining details on my resume. But I think the reason that the phone interview was so fast is that my resume is not impressive at all and they just want to go through standard procedures. Anyway, in the following week, I got the rejection email.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MicroStrategy.

    Interview

    Non-technical phone interview and a rejection. Not happy as the recruiter said she will send the HackerRank questions. A bit shocked since I was not expected to get cut from a non-technical part of the interview.
