    I feel it is easy to get through the interview. They test raw intelligence using algo and DS and testing skills. They dont have SDET roles any more so they will be looking for more coding skills.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA (US)) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen was friendly, recruiter was helpful gave some good tips on what to kind of questions to expect. But they should be doing a better job screening people and not just randomly asking developers with no testing experience to interview for a testing position.
    Coding test was to write code to get all palindromes in a string.
    On-site interviews were hectic, you try and prove your testing and simple coding skills.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Interviewed on campus: I was asked to code a technical question and then to write test cases for it. I first coded the answer on paper then explained. My code was surprisingly cleaner than I expected, and that too on paper. Then, he went about describing his role and what his team does. Following this I was asked few HR questions. These questions are basically to gauge your technical aptitude.

    Was contacted through email about selection for the next round. A few days later, an interview date was fixed and then, the logistics were worked out. It was an all expenses paid trip.

    They won't give you a chance to complain. Food, hotel, transportation... all was just awesome. The day following my arrival I had my interviews.

    They have limo services that take you to the Microsoft campus at Redmond. I had 4 back to back rounds.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer confused me like hell when describing the question.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA (US)).

    Interview

    I submitted my resume and talked to the person briefly in the job fair on campus, and got the call back a couple days later. They are extremely fast to schedule an on-site interview in about a couple weeks. Overall the interview is not hard but quite long (about 8 hours in total - 9am to 6pm) and I got very tired at the end. And the offer was sent out the next day.

    Negotiation

    I was a new grad and didn't know much about negotiation :).
