Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Microsoft (Seattle, WA).

Interview

First interview went quite well. Second round of interviews were within reason except for one interviewer. He was so socially awkward and sometimes refused to even answer my questions. Quite hard to get any clarification from him.
