Entretien de Software Development Engineer II

Employé anonyme - Redmond, WA (États-Unis)
Offre d'embauche acceptée
Expérience positive
Entretien dificile

Candidature

J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. J'ai passé un entretien à Microsoft (Redmond, WA (États-Unis)) en décembre 2016.

Entretien

Got referenced by a friend from MS. A recruiter quickly reached me with online screening test. After passing the test got an invite onsite. Had 5 interviews 1h each onsite. All of them were 1:1 with different engineers and managers. Whole process took 2 month, but could be faster, since I went for 2w vacation in the middle.

    External hiring will send you through 5 interviewers usually.
    Internal team switching still sends you through 3 interviewers. For internal transfers:
    -- Find a job posting
    -- Email the hiring manager and get an "informational" about the position
    -- Apply for the position
    -- Set up interviews
    -- if you get an offer, accept/reject and coordinate a start date

    Entretien

    I was contacted by a recruiter. I had to give an online test consisting of 3 questions. After it got evaluated, I got onsite call. Before that, I got the feedback about my performance in the online test and the entire procedure of the onsite interview was explained. There were 30 candidates being interviewed for the position. On the interview day, the position and the role was explained and it was followed by 4 technical interview rounds of 45 minutes each, which consisted of 1 or 2 data structures and algorithm questions. The interviewers made sure we are working on the most efficient solution, if we were not on right track, they helped us in finding one. 2 days after the interview, I got another call from the recruiter who gave me the feedback of the interviews and asked for my feedback for the interview process. Overall it was a wonderful experience. Best thing I liked was prompt feedback on my performance.

    Entretien

    The interview was all day at their Redmond campus. I met with 5 different engineers who covered a variety of topics. All the interviews were one-on-one. They were very good about asking questions related to my experience and skills, giving me the opportunity to help steer the interview. In the end the position was not a good match for my skills.

    Entretien

    I had one phone interview that wasn't too bad!

    Question:
    1. One with difficulty like implement strncmp or strcat, etc...
    2. One that seemed easy but with a twist.

    Onsite:
    4 interviews in total

    Questions:
    Know your algos and data structures and you will be fine. Interviewers are comfortable and give tips to help!

    Didn't do well on my last interview, which I think was the deciding factor for me to not get hired.

    Overall the interview process is professional. Started with a phone screen. Then flied to Redmond for onsite. The team was quite interested in my past projects and asked a lot of details. Coding questions are not very hard to solve. But still , you may want to study the algorithm and data structures for a couple of months before applying.

    Entretien

    one online round and 4 in house rounds (2 algorithms, 1 straight up coding and 1 behavioral/senior). got a offer confirmation the day of the interview - which was surprisingly fast and delightful ! Team - Azure AD.
    Had a telephonic conversation with team manager in under a week, and was a really good positive overall experience.
    The offer though was slightly lower than what I was currently making but I would have saved more if i moved to seattle - but the benefits were pretty neat. I ended up declining the offer due to a compensation mismatch.

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. Le processus a pris 3 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Microsoft (Seattle, WA (États-Unis)) en juin 2015.

    Entretien

    Referred by friend. Took a standard coding question on phone. 2 days on-site interview. 1 day for HR only, 1 day for techniques. 2 Technique interview, 1 lunch, then told me you'd better begone.

    I was very unlucky. I know senior guys in Microsoft tend to ask puzzles, I met a senior like this. Furthermore, he was in VERY BAD MOOD. Because of Friday? My current job is despised like a baby game for him. He kept yelling why you do NOT know this windows system function, why you do NOT answer my question in the way I like. And he explained his work with a stupid pride.

    Overall, background not matching. Completely waste of time. But it is my fault at first place. I should not even apply, as a pure Linux application developer and Windows-hater. More sadly, all the technical questions in the first 5 pages of Glassdoor Microsoft interview are not asked. So it is hard to know how to prepare.

    This was an internal interview process, so it started with an informational with the hiring manager (~1hr discussion around what the team does, what my current responsibilities were, and why I was interested in the position). Next, there were 3 technical interviews, all about an hour long. Finally, there was a interview with the Engineering Director for that group - that lasted 1.5 hours, and we discussed why I thought I would be a good fit for that team.
