    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA (US)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Technical quiz, asked me many hard questions related to software development and project management. The call kept losing connection, but luckily the lady was friendly about it and we continued the interview where we left off. Overall, it was a difficult interview, but I made it to the next round despite not feeling like it had gone well.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me via Linkedin and after applying I was invited to an on campus interview. The interview was only 30 minutes long. My interviewer spent about 5 minutes on my resume and then moved on to a coding question, which took the rest of the time because I blanked. He wasn't able to answer my question about some of Microsoft's volunteering efforts, but that's understandable.

    The first round and 2nd round interviews is a very exhausting intimidating process, but an amazing experience. Speaking to some of the most brilliant minds in the world, so do not try and fake, they don't care as long as you are a good cultural fit.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA (US)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Questions were easier than anticipated but there seemed to be greater emphasis to get them correct. 4 interviews all day back-to-back, it was pretty exhausting by the end. Interview process was pretty rushed, had a call and they told me three days later to come on-sight. The developers and recruiters I talked to were nice but everything seemed unorganized until the day of the interview.
