    User Experience Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyderabad (India)

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Microsoft (Hyderabad (India)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The first round starts out with a design exercise that is sent by email which you need send across in 2-3 days. The second is an in-person interview with their senior designers, I went through two rounds of these.

    The design exercise was to create an application for the circular train journey ticket for the Indian railways.

    For in-person interview they ask you to talk about past projects and also work on small design exercises on the spot. The exercises are pretty simple and just test your train of thought, you are expected to make quick hand drawn wireframes to get your point across.

    My interview process was stopped after two rounds as they felt my Visual design skills were impressive but "UX" had room for improvement.

    Interview

    A recruiter came to my university to interview me. He seemed mostly interested in my overall skills, including soft skills. I shared my portfolio of work, and he asked me questions about what I wanted to do in the future. I was surprised IBM was interested in me because I'm not a computer science major, but it didn't seem to matter.

    Applications Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chennai (India)

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Microsoft (Chennai (India)).

    Interview

    Four rounds of technical and two rounds of HR interviews.
    First three rounds of technical rounds are crucial. If you pass those other rounds are just pass-throughs.
    The technical rounds start with very easy questions to make you feel at home, but progressively become tougher as the interviewer drills down deeper into subjects of your liking. The key is to let the interviewer know what you are good at beforehand. The first three rounds typically take 45 minutes to 1 hour each.

    Interview Questions

    • 1) How does the OS load the CLR for .NET applications?
      2) What do you mean by an object?
      3) You have a string of size 256 MB and you have total RAM of 256 MB. How will you return the string by reversing it?

      5) Explain the IDisposable usage.
