    Applied at recruiting event, got a phone interview. It lasted about 45 minutes. It was very easy, a couple of puzzles here and there. Just a rundown of my resume, to be honest.

    University recruiting. Contacted by recruiter via email. First round interview. It was conducted at my university. First question was a standard "tell me about yourself". Afterwards, I was expecting more technical questions. Instead the interviewer asked me what Microsoft products I liked and hated, and to explain why. The last question was a basic brain teaser that wasn't too bad. I would recommend that for the 1st round interview, expect more behavioral than technical questions.

    I got the interview through the career fair at my campus. It was the most technical interview I had had, so it was a little rough. I also didn't sense much friendliness from my interview, which didn't help anything.

    Did one interview with me on campus, and then flew me out for a weekend. While there I was interviewed by 4 or 5 different people. Once the interviews were done, I waited (along with a group of others who were interviewing) for decisions to be made. As we left they gave offers to some of us.

    I interviewed in Fargo. The interview consisted of 4 rounds which were comparatively easy. I think I answered most of them correctly. There were about 20 of us who were called for interview during that day. Overall it was a very positive experience. Though I was not selected, I think it was because of the tough competition as every one other than me also had good interviews

    Entretien

    [TLDR: The worst interview experience of my life. The Microsoft recruitment team did a terrible job.]

    I met with a recruiter on my university's campus in October 2015 and gave her my resume. I told her I was interested in a hardware intern position but she set me up with an interview for the software internship instead. I asked her about it in an email response and she told me that if I could get a job in software, I could just switch to hardware once I got there for the summer. I had an on-campus interview which seemed to go well. Mostly behavioral and experiential questions with one coding question. The interviewer kept cutting my responses off which was unsettling.

    I followed up with a thank you and my recruiter told me I would hear back in 3 weeks. 3 weeks goes by and I still haven't heard a response so I send a follow up. The recruiter gets back to me and tells me to wait two more weeks. I don't get a response in two weeks so I send a follow up. The recruiter tells me I move on to the next round of interviews and connects me to a new recruiter. The new recruiter tells me that I will be interviewing in person and that I should be in contact with a scheduler within the next two weeks to set up an interview time. I told her about my situation about wanting to work in hardware and she said that it should be fine. The scheduler sends me an email asking for three dates that I could make it during which she tells me I will be interviewing in Raleigh, NC. I give the three dates and she responds with a form for me to fill out with the final date. This is beginning/mid January 2016 at this point). I don't hear any confirmation on my flight or hotel within two weeks (end of January 2016). I send a follow up and the scheduler responds saying she had been sending to the wrong email address (I'm very frustrated at this point). She also says that there are no more positions in Raleigh so I will be interviewing in Seattle....

    I finally get flight confirmation and I'm in Seattle and have confirmation for my first interview at 11am the next morning. I wake up early around 8am and luckily so because around 8:25am I get a call from my scheduler saying she told me the wrong time and location of my interview. I was actually supposed to meet with a recruiter at 8:30am at a location that was 30min away from my hotel. I have two and a half heart attacks and tell her I don't have transportation and she tells me to grab a Microsoft shuttle. She also reassures me that this won't count against me and she has alerted my interviewers of the mistake. I quickly get ready and make it to the first interview by 9:20am. I unfortunately never got to meet with a recruiter so I didn't even know what team I was interviewing with when I got there. I found out I am meeting with CDM (load management) from my first interviewer because I had to ask and I felt unprepared and unprofessional about that. Before I had been told that I was just interviewing for Microsoft in general and not a specific team, but my interviewer tells me up front I am interviewing for an internship with the CDM team (remember that I wanted to be in hardware in the first place and was told I could switch if I got the job). He gave me a schedule for the rest of the day and the interviews seemed to go well from there. I had three 50-min interviews back to back, and lunch was right after my second interview. The questions were all iterating through arrays in some way or another. Pretty standard questions, but considering I am a computer engineering student with a focus in computer architecture, I felt out of my comfort zone (remember that I wanted a hardware position in the first place). All three interviewers were nice, but they didn't ask any behavioral questions and one or two experiential questions which tells me that they are just ultimately looking for code monkeys instead of collaborators and innovators.

    At the end of the day, I was told to go meet the recruiter that I was originally supposed to meet with in the morning back at the recruitment building. When I get there and check in, I am told he is too busy and to send him an email with my thoughts of how it went. He sends a quick response telling me I will hear back within a week. Two days later I get a formal no from him saying that I should wait a year to apply before reapply for a position at Microsoft.

    Overall, this was the most horrible interviewing experience that I have ever had, and probably anyone will ever have at Microsoft. I see this case as an anomaly for the company, but I feel obligated to share my feedback. I felt like they weren't even going to hire me and they were just hoping that along the way I would give up and not follow up. What a waste of my time and energy and a waste of the interviewers' time as well considering I didn't even want the position they were interviewing me for.

    Met with college recruiter at campus career fair and also at a dinner held for cs students. I had a first round on campus and got flown out to Seattle for on site interviews. All expenses were covered by Microsoft, which was very nice and the trip was a fun experience.

    Entretien

    There was one phone interview for around 30 mins with a recruiter. I did not realize that Microsoft allows their recruiters to do the technical phone screen.
    I had mostly resume based questions for a major part of the interview.
    One technical question was to explain recursion.
    When there was just 5 mins to go, the recruiter asked me a puzzle. Very pedantic one at that. While I was majorly prepared for algorithms and data structures I did not bother to go through the usual brain teasers that Microsoft once was infamous in asking
