    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA (US)).

    Interview

    Initially, was contacted by recruiter. Had quick phone screening and then called for onsite interview.

    The onsite interview was horrible because one of the interviewers was jumping randomly between questions. I believe the interviewer was looking for some answers online on the spot. Interviewer would laugh instead of correcting and would always try to invalidate my answers. I had made up my mind then.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Seattle, WA (US)).

    Got a phone interview first which was relaxing, it's about logic thinking and similar things like that. Interviewers were friendly. After about a week, I got an on-site opportunity, and went to their headquarter, spent a whole day interviewing, but didn't get the offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Microsoft (Austin, TX (US)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed on campus at uni, recruiter asked me to debug the code written by the previous interviewee. Then we talked about what it was like to work at Microsoft and what questions I had about working at Microsoft.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer had the code from the previous interviewee still on the white board in the room. He asked me to identify what the code did (printed the contents of a binary tree through a BFS using a queue). Then asked me to identify the bugs with the code and suggest how to fix it (null-pointer exceptions when printing out the values from the queue and checking for nulls before adding a value to the queue).   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA (US)).

    Phone interview, followed by a full day of interviews on site. These included an HR overview interview, checklist of skillsets, multiple technical interviews (firmware, electrical engineering, analog & RF engineering, and mechanical engineering) and a behavioral interview. The technical interviews varied from asking to solve very specific engineering problems to much more open-ended questions about previous engineering assignments, problems, and solutions.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Microsoft (Dallas, TX (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I was asked for a telephonic interview first. Interviewer didn't ask anything. Just discussed about my projects and achievements with me. Than he switched to some behavioral questions. No technical questions asked. He seemed to be very optimistic and positive during the interview, but somehow I got rejection later on.
