    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very difficult. HR would to say what subjects the programming interview would test. It turned into a white board ASI operation questions. Two other interviews with four other people followed. It was not a pleasant experience. "Why should I hire you?" Came up on two separate occasions, along with other seemingly-ambiguous non technical questions. Gear up your Project Management terms, they seem to like those buzzwords.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Mountain View, CA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I applied as a PM but they set an interview for an SDET position. Interview process was great though. Had a phone interview with a recruiter where we talked about my classes and projects that I've done. The recruiter was really nice and friendly. They flew me up to Mountain View a couple of weeks later. The first interviewer asked me to write atoi() and merge two sorted linked lists, which I did correctly. My interviews went downhill afterward though...

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Microsoft (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Microsoft was on campus and took resumes, although they say you can either apply online or hand them the resume's personally. They did not schedule an interview until I applied online. Although I did not even qualify for the second round, they had the second round of interviews, the very next day again on campus.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Microsoft (Seattle, WA) in December 2011.

    Interview

    First round was an on campus interview which was fairly easy. Later was called to interview onsite in Seattle for an SDET position in the XBOX live team. Consisted of 4 technical interviews. All of them were fairly easy except one which i guess was the bar raiser and also the reason i didn't get selected.

    • Given a string say "ABCD". Now create a new string with duplicates of each character in the original string and to it append the reverse of the same string (with duplicates) excluding the last character.

    Interview

    The position was for a college grad. There was an on campus screening. The interviewer asked me problem solving questions and C programming questions. They got back to me a week later and I was asked to interview at the MS Hiring Event in Redmond. This consisted of 4 - 45 min interviews with members of various teams. Each interview was primarily focusing on one problem per interview.

    • All questions were technical or problem solving. I never expected any of them to be difficult or unexpected.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Seattle, WA) in July 2010.

    Interview

    2 phone interviews, then 3 Live Meeting Interviews within a day instead of the on site interview.

    The phone interviews went well. But problems happened during the Live meeting interviews.

    I never finished each question because each interviewer spent more than half an hour trying to share notepad through Live Meeting. So, there were no time to complete the coding questions.
