    Interview

    The interviewer was not very approachable, friendly, and didn't respond to my answers so it was difficult to tell if I was going on the right path. When I asked clarifying questions, he would just repeat the same question again. The questions were very broad. I left the interview feeling terrible and severely disappointed in myself.

    Interview

    Had a technical screen with one member of the team I was interviewing for. He asked one question and we spent some time going over logical reasoning regarding solutions, and then code. Then I did a virtual onsite with five interviews, including an "as appropriate" interview with someone higher up. Most of the questions were easy/medium, and the interviewers varied from friendly to mildly angry. I was told afterward that my feedback was great, but the position had been filled, and I declined to look for other positions, as it was really just that one I wanted.

    It was okay. The interviewer was kind and tried calming me before the interview, trying to phrase questions in such a manner that it is easier to understand. I enjoyed the process but the problem itself was a bit difficult for me

    Interview

    30 mins virtual 1st round interview. Interview was on microsoft team. It was about whether I fit Microsoft as a company so the questions were geared towards my background, and behavioural questions.

    Since there was only 30 mins, so the interviewer was rushing to ask all the questions she prepared to get signals. At the last 5 mins, there were Q&As sections.

    I did my phone screen ~a month after applying, and got invited to the final round the next day. The interview was chill and pleasant. They reuse questions in my case so do some google before interview.
