    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview

    Technical online test. A technical skill interview which covered all parts of the internship followed by a HR interview. My HR interview was more of a stress test. Each interview is different. For example, the interviewers focussed more on talking to me than reading through my resume but this was not similar to other's interviews.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA).

    Interview

    Visited the Microsoft booth at my university's career fair. Invited to an interview at my school; mostly talked about my previous experience with only one technical question. The interview lasted 30 minutes. Got the invite to Redmond about 2 weeks later. At MS, I had 4 total interviews, which included one lunch interview. The three regular interviews were about 30-45 minutes. The lunch one was a little over an hour. All the questions were pretty typical; nothing out of the ordinary. Everyone was really friendly, especially the recruiters.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Microsoft (Seattle, WA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    It lasted from August until late November. The first HR interview was in around a week after the referral. From then, it took them +1 month to get back to me about the result of the first interview. Then I had the other 4 interviews, which were rather repetitive. One of the starting HR questions I was asked was repeated 3 times, between all the 5 interviews. Interviewers were diverse, and so was their interview process, but no system design questions.
