    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Microsoft (Stony Brook, NY) in September 2013.

    It was on campus job fair at my college. I was interviewed on spot. The interviewer took my resume, and wrote my graduation date on my resume. Then he gave me the Microsoft t shirt, and told me to apply back during my junior or senior year. I was a college freshman at that time.

    • The interviewer asked a lot of questions about the research paper I wrote at age 17 on Cloud Computing. The he asked some problem solving questions. It was almost 2 years ago when I was a college freshman. So I can't remember the exact questions, but those were related to data structure of C++, and I could answer one question correctly out of two.   Answer Question
