    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Hyderabad (India)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I had two interview rounds with senior engineers (from their search team) directly as I had performed well in a Microsoft hackathon. They were polite while being very professional. The entire process was very smooth. I was mostly asked design questions related to Machine Learning and about my personal projects related to Machine Learning. I was asked one question related specifically to programming (implementing std::upper_bound), which was the easy part of the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Implement std::upper_bound for a sorted array.   1 Answer
    • Asked me about spectral methods in Machine Learning and what they bring to the table that other methods don't.   1 Answer

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Microsoft (Hyderabad (India)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interviewer was reasonably congenial and since it was phone interview so I did not know the interviewer. It was not very clear from the interviewer's side as to the kinds of answers that he wanted.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Hyderabad (India)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    two telephonic discussions (Skype) with coding test. First round was bit okay as he asked to code two algorithms and few questions on cloud and threading. He explained about team and product. Later HR called me and told that first round is set of mixed feedback and they want to check my design skills as interviewer is not happy on it. In second round they asked to find duplicate in a string and I did that. Unfortunately few boundary conditions failed and I was not able to complete everything in 40 mins he allowed. He said I want to leave and cut the call without asking anything. So far no reply from them
