Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (West Lafayette, IN (US)) in October 2015.

Interview

Was invited for an on-campus interview. The interviewer was very nice and helpful. We took around 20 minutes to discuss my interests and past projects and then he came to the coding question. I solved it but couldn't optimize on time. He then asked if I had any questions for him

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA (US)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I attended a Microsoft event on campus and talked with a software engineer at the fall career fair. I contacted the recruiter about a week after asking about interviews. Instead of going through the on-campus interviews, she said I would fly out to Redmond for the on-site, final round interviews. There were three interviews; they were pretty difficult compared to my peers, but that might have been because I had more experience than most.
