    I've been through this process with Amazon and Google before and the phone screening process is pretty much the same. Not too many questions about resume or experience but algo and data structure questions.
    Got a response the next day to tell me they wanted to bring me in for 1:1 interviews. Trip was schedule for the following week and the process is made very easy by the recruiter. They take care of everything for you and you just have to approve the final travel arrangements.

    My on-site interviews started with a 30 minutes meeting with my recruiter. He then brought me back to the lobby area where the first interviewer (an SDET II) came to get me. We went to his office. We went through a couple of algo and data structure problems and he then asked me questions about design patterns and other behavioral stuff. It was about 60 minutes including some time for me to ask questions.
    The next interview was over lunch (also with an SDET II) but was very similar. Being during lunch, the discussion seems a little more casual but you are still being interviewed and you still have to solve problems.

    The last interview was with a Senior SDET Lead, in his office. He gave me an algo problem and a UI design question. The rest was based on my past experience and some behavioral questions. We ended up spending more time talking than solving problems.

    I was pretty confident after the first 2 interviews but it all went downhill during the 3rd one. The reaction and facial expressions of my interviewer made me feel like I was getting it all wrong. He told me at the end that I was done which confirmed my feeling was right since they usually schedule more interviews if you are doing well.

    Entretien

    I had prior experience working as a contractor at Microsoft so I was familiar work environment. This interview was for Windows Phone Group. One of my colleague who work for MS had forwarded my resume to this opening. I was having a really nice job at one of the fortune 100 company and had solid experience with some 4 of the leading companies in the field. So my profile was good in that sense, but didnt see any mercy while doing 1:1 interviewing for the post. Initial phone interview asked about programming and testing questions. Not very difficult. Then followed by a one day interview which started at 10 am and lasted at around 5.30 pm. First one was one 1:1 hr session(just explained what I will be doing thru the day and what all i look from the job ) . Five 1:1 technical sessions , Initial ones where easy , but as soon as they realize that you are able to answer the initial rounds, the other ones will go tougher and tougher till you break.
    So you really dont have much idea of how you are doing, but it seems after four rounds you could be relatively safe since the questions are hard to crack questions by then and they also know about that. There is a lunch break that too filled with some technical and some personal talks. By evening you will get exhausted, so keep your energy levels really up till the end. They will give you indications about the result. The last person I met was a higher level manager and he told me ,that they liked me and that I had done well and HR will get back to you. After two days I got the offer. Dont go without enough preparation, for sure its difficult to crack without proper study , prepare well , at least it will give a nice experience . Good thing is even if you don't get its a nice experience.

    Entretien

    I submitted my resume and talked to the person briefly in the job fair on campus, and got the call back a couple days later. They are extremely fast to schedule an on-site interview in about a couple weeks. Overall the interview is not hard but quite long (about 8 hours in total - 9am to 6pm) and I got very tired at the end. And the offer was sent out the next day.

    Interviewers keep keying in their inputs. Next interviewer knows what previous one asked and what needs to be tested. In my case, first asked for problem solving, second, design, third on bug finding, fourth on coding and optimization and firth on behavioral. Inshort, covered all the areas well.

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris +4 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Microsoft (Boston, MA (États-Unis)) en novembre 2012.

    Entretien

    Started out by applying online on a saturday. Got an email from the recruiter wanting to chat by Monday. We set up an time a couple of days later where I was asked some basic object oriented programming questions like access modifiers etc.

    Got an email two days later to set up tech screen with one of the senior SDETs. I scheduled it a week out to give me time to study. I didn't think I did so great but got an email saying they would like to move forward with on-site! Yay!!!!!

    Went on-site and from most interview stories, I knew that if I didn't make it past No 3 interviewer, I was screwed. I was so nervous as we ended the 3rd interview and at the end he said "Someone else would like to meet you" I did a dance when he turned his back!! The first 3 interviews were technical in nature; 60 mins each except the lunch interview which was 90 mins. I must say that Msoft has the best interview process. The interviewers were nice, cordial and really trying to help me succeed unlike some of the other tech company interviews I have been to. They also had senior people interview me so I guess having experienced interviewers makes a diff.

    After the 4th interview with the hiring manager, I met another senior engineer from a different team who was there to validate all that the other interviewers had said. I was sure this was the last then I was told I was to meet one more person! The hiring manager's manager! I was burnt out at this point. One look at my face and he said "Its obviously been a long day, I won't keep you for long". I was relieved to hear that.

    From the 5th interview, it was all general chatting about school I graduated from, behavioral questions, how many apps on my phone, passions and so on.

    In all I had 7 interviews including the recruiters'. My day started at 9.45am and ended at 5pm. It was well worth it cos I got the offer the next business day!!! I'm sooooo excited!!!!

    Goodluck to everyone trying to get in. Just keep working at it and don't give up. I have been rejected at Amazon, Google, Facebook and on my first try with Microsoft I got it!!!

    It was a very smooth process. It helps to work as a contractor or vendor for a team in which you are interested before going full-time to access the team.

    Contacted by a recruiter, followed up with a phone interview. An in-person interview was then set up; the setup process for the flight was somewhat bureaucratic, but the interview itself went smoothly.

    While the technical questions were good, I found the interviewers' description of the company to be misleading and portrayed it as being far less competitive and bureaucratic and far more flexible than it actually is. If this is a concern for you I would heavily recommend discussing it with people you can trust and who have experience with other companies.

    They made a good-faith effort to match the gross salary of my previous company. Considering Washington's income-tax laws and Microsoft's additional benefits, this worked out to be a raise in compensation. I respected this and did not negotiate.
