    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview

    First round of interview was a couple STAR questions then one technical question. Was invited on site and had four rounds of technical questions. No personal/STAR questions whatsoever. All of my interviewers were dead inside. I asked one interviewer how his day was going and he said “stressful”. None of them took notes and I think one of them came up with the questions on the spot. Very poor experience.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Eugene, OR (US)) in November 2019.

    30-minute whiteboard interview @ my University. Initially questions about resume and experience, then tech related coding questions on the whiteboard. Interviewer seemed distant and uninterested. Could tell they had made up their mind before the interview had really progressed that far.
