    Very quick. Had to do an online assessment of like 5 different subjects (Business, design, verbal, programming, and one more I think). Each online assignment takes about 20-25mins to complete. Onsite was a very good experience as everyone was super nice and friendly.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MicroStrategy in January 2017.

    Interview

    Got a brief phone call from the HR after applying through online. The phone call was a very brief behavioral interview with a little tell-me-about-yourself type of questions. Overall, the interviewer was really nice. After that, I got a Hakerrank online coding test link that I had to finish within 2 days.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MicroStrategy (Tysons Corner, VA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    There were 4 stages of the interview, each with a different interviewer. First was a simple conversation about my experience where the interviewer then asked me to describe a product idea and explain why I would be a good fit for the company. Second was a math brain teaser. Third was another brain teaser, but this one geometrical rather than numeric. Last was the coding questions where I was asked to write the beginning of a Line class, then solve a problem printing nodes in order.

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

    Interview

    It begins with a campus interview or 1 round of phone interview, and then followed by on-site interview with 3~5 persons. There's a written test focusing on coding and algorithms before one on one interview. There could be a lunch interview, which is not formal and you can ask many questions about the company.

    Interview

    First off, I applied for 3 positions, 2 stores. They each sent me email links to take an assessment. I clicked on one of the links - the full-time position down the street from me I prefered. I took both parts of the assessment and at the end it said "Thank you for completing your assessment so quickly - you rock!" Yup. Pretty sure it said I would receive an email shortly but I did not receive on. A few days went by and it alarmed me because I was expecting an automated email. Anywho, I got an email about 4 days after completing assessment, looked like it was maybe because I was in the jobs mailing list, that said You're invited to an Open House Information Session at the corporate building for all the metro. It was in a week or so and I had no idea if I received that email as a promotional email or because I passed assessment. Either way, I knew I needed to go and be prepared for an interview just in case. One of my regular customers at work had worked at AT&T recently and was still respected so I had him put in a good word for me. He seemed to really believe in me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at MicroStrategy in March 2014.

    Interview

    Phone screen interview. The interviewer didn't give too much introduction about the company. I was given a coding problem on the screen which has a interface that is very similar to Leetcode. Also the coding problem is from Leetcode I think. You need to finish coding within 20 mins. It is a little uncomfortable if you are not practiced on Leetcode.
