    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Microsoft in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initial Phone Screening with HR, followed by a technical phone screening
    1) HR - general background checking
    2) Phone Screen #1 - 20-30 mins - Introductions - Implement a binary tree using linked list - list all the test cases

    On site interviews 3 rounds and then i got asked to leave
    1) Implement a Sudoku application (check if the sudoku is solved)
    2) Design a phone book
    3) Given an array, locate where the break points are

    In retrospect, one should ask a lot of questions before attempting to solve the questions. They kinda expected you ask a lot of questions too
