Interview

Interview very smooth, but they do take a long take to move you to next rounds. Interviewed for an internship with them, and that actually moved pretty fast. Very technical questions for internship opportunities

    Interview

    The interview was smooth. The questions the person asked me were pretty decent and relied heavily on data structures, specially trees and arraylists. He was peculiar about the syntax in the code, and thats where i think i might have had issues.

    Applied online and ended up doing an on-campus interview. Showed up to an employee that seemed like he wanted no part in the hiring process, which is understandable but still kind of disheartening.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview

    First round of interview was a couple STAR questions then one technical question. Was invited on site and had four rounds of technical questions. No personal/STAR questions whatsoever. All of my interviewers were dead inside. I asked one interviewer how his day was going and he said “stressful”. None of them took notes and I think one of them came up with the questions on the spot. Very poor experience.
