    Interview

    I was contacted over LinkedIn. After providing an updated resume I was asked to take an hour long test on HackerRank. After the test, I was invited to interview onsite on a Saturday. There seemed to be around 22 candidates present and about 6 interviewers present on the day. The first round was a technical one, it went well. After waiting for more than three hours after the first, I was told that the first round had been positive and I would have to come in again on a weekday for further rounds. Three days later, they called to schedule another technical interview two days later via skype. A day before the interview, I received a mail stating that they would not be proceeding with my candidacy. So basically the HR there doesn't care about any one else's time.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Microsoft (Pune (India)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I got an call from Microsoft Hyderabad regarding this profile, and my interview was lined up on Saturday.

    The HR had shared an JD profile, and I had prepared according to that.

    The interview was conducted on time but the questions which were asked were specifically on architecture of my project, don't know whether it was communication or lack of knowledge on part of interviewer but he was not getting exactly what I was trying to tell him.

    The biggest thing was he did not know what RWD(Responsive web design) is ?.

    Also he got confused when I explained him the repository pattern.

    I thought consultant was a technical profile, but it more of sort of solution provider to client which does not involve getting your hands dirty with bits.

    Also I did not get a single question from the JD which was shared by the HR or which was present on the Microsoft site.
