I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Microsoft.

Interview

It was a phone interview. The woman was very nice. Her phone signal was TERRIBLE so we kept breaking up (I know it wasn't on my end). Overall, it was a fun interview

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

    Interview

    I was contacted for an on campus interview after going to their booth at the career fair. Interviewer was very kind and asked a basic technical question as well as some behavioral questions. It was a very pleasant experience. Unfortunately, they don't have any more spots open for the summer so I was not able to move onto the onsite.

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA).

    Interview

    The interview process ended up pretty slow for me. The recruiters will give you a false hope that you'll be moved forward with the process but they end up with a rejection email.
    I had a couple of phone screen interviews and was told that I'll have an onsite later in the week, but it didn't happen.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Microsoft (Cambridge, MA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Microsoft was conducting on-campus interviews. Met with a very friendly interviewer, who teased my resume (he was an alum of my university so knew of some of my extracurriculars) and made me feel very comfortable. Two coding questions which I did on the whiteboard while speaking through my thought process with the interviewer. He was very helpful and encouraging. Good experience overall.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Microsoft (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend and a recruiter contacted me in August. Despite my replies, I did not receive word of a phone interview until November. Did not hear results of phone interview until DECEMBER. And I did send a few follow-up emails requesting to know my application status.

    This year, MS has been swamped with intern interviews, over-scheduling themselves. I am very disappointed in a lack of professionalism. At this point, I assume that I will not be going to onsites even though my recruiter told me I did "very well in my phone interview". I wish there was less of a lack of transparency.
