    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pune
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Microsoft (Pune).

    Interview

    The interviewer was very rude and was not interested in taking the interview. He asked me one programming question. I explained the logic and approach to tackling that program. He said yes, and asked me to write the code. I took around 15 minutes to write the code on white paper and after that, he did not check the code and told me that the approach is wrong and stopped the interview. I had attempted the interviews with Amazon & Google before and was unable to crack those interviews as well. But I was happy by the way that the company treats the candidates.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA (US)) in April 2020.

    Interview

    Process took longer than usual. Started off with an on campus interview, where I was asked 3 questions in 30 minutes. I was told that I had passed the interview but the final round spots were full, so I waited 5 months to hear about a final round spot. The final round was all virtual due to COVID-19; I had 3 interviews back to back, with each one being 45 minutes of implementing code.

    Interview Questions

    • On campus: 1) Design an iterator of nested linked lists that included a hasNext() and next(). 2) How would you go about finding the running median for a stream of numbers. 3) How would you return the k largest ints in an array.
      Final round: 1) Create a word search function for a boggle board. 2) Implement a Trie. 3) Find the index in an array such that the sum of the left and right sides of that array are closest to one another.   Answer Question

    Interview

    The interview process was way too large. I was interviewed remotely by Microsoft on March 2020 at the first stage, second stage on May and they answered me at late June.

    Regarding the interviewers, they were all friendly and kind, and took the time to explain me some examples on the coding interview before I started going through the problem.

    Full Stack Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tel Aviv-Yafo (Israel)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Microsoft (Tel Aviv-Yafo (Israel)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR to see if you fit the profile in terms if work experience and characteristics. After that they sent me a Codility test with 3 questions in 2 hour.

    Interview Questions

    • 1) Given an array of N (natural) integers. return the largest number K (K>0) only if K and -K exist in the array, if there's no such number return 0. For example if arr=[4,-4, 3, -3, 2], should return 4, and arr=[-2,0,0,-3] should return 0. I think the algorithm should solve this in O(N).

      2) Given a string S of N letters, we want to return the alphabetically largest letter that occurs in both lowercase and uppercase in S, or decide that there's no such letter. For example S=aaBabcDaA, should return "B", else should return "NO". For example S=Codility, return "NO".

      3) A very long question about Jafar & Aladdin, pawn game. Find the maximum pawns owned by Aladdin that Jafar can beat in his turn (given a board N x N). Sorry.   Answer Question
