    Software Engineer Interview

    Interview

    I got a referral from a friend and got contacted for a phone screen. I was asked a LC easy question and a few follow-ups. Passed that and was invited to an on-site (virtual).
    There were 4 on-site interviews. 3 technical, 1 behavioral. In the technical ones, I was asked one LC easy, one medium and one non-LC medium level. The interviewers were very friendly and helped me when I got stuck.

    I don't think I did amazing, just well enough. I tried to make a connection with each interview and talk to them as if they were my coworkers.

    Got an offer 1 week after on-site. The whole process took about 1 month.

    Interview

    Hiring manager called me and we talked twice. Never received any feedback, seems like they are interviewing dozens of ppl for each role and don’t even have clear job descriptions. The managers I’ve talked to seemed very drone-like, lacking any personality. I had to contact them to learn that I was not moving forward in the process, let alone they had no feedback whatsoever.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    A bunch of rounds with a million people applying for small number of positions . The interviewers seem like they are barely interested in what you have to say. It was also obvious that managers had already picked who they wanted and was just going through the motions.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview

    Simple and straight forward. A lot of the questions can be answered if you have knowledge of user data and scaleable projects. I don't think anyone with a PM background would do bad on these questions.
