    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Microsoft (Bangalore) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I had for this position through my university. Overall it was a 2-day process.

    1. First round comprised of an online test in cocubes.com. Consisted of networking basics, C language, OS concepts, english, logical and quantitative sections.
    2. Second round comprised of GD, topics based on current trends in the technological sector.
    3. Following GD, there was a technical interview round where I was asked almost everything of computer networks and OS concepts.
    4. After technical interview, there were HR interview, followed by Manager interview and ended by Director interview. Each interview round was an elimination round so every step of the process mattered.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview

    The Interview process consisted of 2 rounds. The first round was the technical round. It lasted for around one and a half hours. The second round was the HR round. It lasted for about 30 mins, and was much more relaxed. I was asked 2 technical questions in the HR round, but they were much easier than the technical round.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview

    Applied through employee referral. The interview was face-to-face. The interviewer started by asking about my past experience. Then, most of the discussion was around designing an engine to predict the outcome of a certain cricket match. I started well but then got a bit nervous and messed it up. It was only after I got out that I realized where I'd gone wrong. Got a negative reply within a day. The overall experience was quite pleasant.

    First rounded consisted of about 50 questions on aptitude which we were supposed to solve in 45 minutes.This was followed by technical round,which had questions on DS,OS,DBMS,C++,C.Then came the technical interview followed by the H.R round.The questions in the technical round were easy as well.But they asked in depth about the resume.They mostly checked us on our basics of DBMS and DS.
    Although I could not make it to the H.R round,but those who made it said it lasted for about 15 minutes and it was a good experience.
