SDE2 Interview

Anonymous Employee in Redmond, WA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA) in January 2011.

Interview

Several people talk to you in a row, one be one, for the whole day. Like you talk to a person for about 40-50 minutes, then a brief break, then another person, probably 5 people total. You shall sleep well, have maybe a chocolade with you and things like that. It really takes energy to get through.

    Interview

    Typical - first is telephonic. Its an elimination effectively. If cleared, you are invited to the office for a day for face to face interviews. Typically candidates go through 5 interviews. The decision is typically conveyed later over email or may be done personally then and there.

    The bar is high. Expect technically challenging questions. Expect to write code on whiteboard/paper.

    Interview Questions

    • No such "difficult" question. Typical CS interview - focus on fundamentals, DS, algo DBMS etc...   Answer Question
