    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyderabad
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Microsoft (Hyderabad) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Its a 4 round interview

    Round 1: Telephonic(technical) Duration: 40 mins to 1 hour 30 mins
    - Be thoroughly prepared for the interview
    - Be attentive and have patience as its a long exhausting interview
    - Propose for a face-to-face interview if you are in the same town or if you are willing to travel to the interview location with your own expenses- this will give you lots of advantages than a telephonic interview

    Round 2: Hands-on(technical) Duration: 4-8 hours
    - You are tested on many aspects and stress level
    - Have a proper breakfast before you go for this interview as it might take all day and you may be starving: This approach is to test how a resource work in stressful situations
    - Analyze the task given to you before you start working on it, say 40% of your time should be used to analyze the task and ask appropriate questions

    Round 3: Manager Duration: 30-40 mins
    - This will be a test to check the attitude of the candidate
    - Willingness to work in stressful situations
    - Thought process
    - Team playing abilities

    Round 4: Delivery head(telephonic/face-to-face) Duration: 10-20 mins
    - Casual discussion and welcome note
