    Multiple rounds spanning over few months. Shortlisting after each round. First round had about 15-20 objective questions to test really basic skills in 1 hour. Second round consists of coding on 2-3 given problems in 1 hour. Next up is phone interview in which they might ask puzzles or other computer science questions. Finally 2 face-to-face interviews with increasing level of difficulty and shortlisting too. Interviews consist of both questions testing your skill and also related to your background and resume.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview Details

    They came for campus placements.Almost all of IT and CSE dept took the initial round where we had to answer 20 MCQ questions online.Out of around 150 students, 50 were selected for the next coding round.In the coding round we wrote online code( non-compiled) . There were 5 questions...4 very average problems and one designing question.It was pretty easy overall.About 30 were selected.Next we had to go for an interview.Here again we faced a design question.It was easy as well.The question was in an office we had an obsolete printer and there were many computers that would use it.To design a helpful system such that the printer could be used.Here again around 15 was selected.

    After that there was a one-on-one interview 2 questions were asked.
    1. In a list there only one repeating element.Output that element.(Simple hash implementation)
    2.2nd largest number in an array.(Without sorting)
    And then they asked few C++ questions about OOPS concept.
    Here only 7 was selected

    After that we had a HR round.Where they asked questions like tell me about yourself and your strength and weaknesses...etc
    Only 4 were selected .I was not amongst them I think because of my CGPA.The top 4 were selected.
