Entretien

I was asked about my projects and interests in the company, and i was then given a technical coding question. I am currently waiting to find out whether I passed through for stage 2 or not. Interviewer was friendly and technical question was fair.

    Entretien

    Applied through university recruiting portal. Had an on-campus interview that went very well, and was bumped directly to an on-site interview for the next interview round (for the next summer as they had already filled up for that year). (disclaimer, my college is heavily recruited from.)

    The on site interview was very fun. I believe the only MS dev office in north america is currently Redmond, and everyone I know who applies goes on-site there. Flown in before the interview and given ample time to explore the Seattle area (you could request a car for the duration of your stay if you wished).

    The on-site interview itself involved staying for 4 hours of interviewing (plus 1 for lunch) with a number of other interviewees (but all interviews are private). Relaxed atmosphere and got a free hoodie at the end which is always nice.

    • Expect the standard questions you would expect from an interviewer in a certain area. For example, if you're being interviewed by someone from Bing, you should know algorithms. If by Windows, systems questions... Very standard.   1 réponse

    Entretien

    I submitted my resume at an event and was contacted by a recruiter for a 30-minute on-campus interview a week later. The interview was scheduled for the next day. Everyone was friendly and questions were primarily about my resume. I also had one whiteboard coding question centered on binary trees.

    Entretien

    I was contacted by a recruiter, passed the first half-tech-half-non-tech phone screening. It was basic "walk me through your resume" and "talk about a project" and "what if you were a leader of a team and two team member have problem, how would you solve it". Technical part wasn't hard, simple puzzles. Then I was invited to their center for an in-person interview.

    It was an on campus interview asking basic algorithm and data structure questions. I think the Difficulty level was medium. You need to speak about your experience and past projects and code on paper or white board. It was my first tech interview so I did not have much practice. Could have gone better if I was more confident and experienced

    Entretien

    Recruiter reached out to me after coming across my resume. Had an interview on campus and it was entirely technical. He asked me to solve a question based on recursion on a white board. Was helpful in guiding me in the right direction. Interviewer had a very thick oriental accent and communication was definitely an issue. Had to ask him to repeat himself on multiple occasions.

    I had an on-campus interview. They asked me sign up online and pick a time slot that worked for me. The interview lasted exactly 30 min - 15 min behavior and 15 min technical, and the interviewer was easy to talk to. He helped me through the question when I got stuck.

    My resume was somehow given to a Microsoft representative. I'm still not sure how. I was emailed and called to ask to interview in the next few days. There was only one technical question with about 15-20 minutes to solve it. Overall I was very thankful for the process and the experience.

    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.
