Easy Interview

Interview

Really easy and chill. Phone call followed by two onsite interviews. Phone interview is super trivial, hardest part is probably getting selected for it. The onsite interviews are lit because they give you a sick food allowance to get room service at the hotel, so you can grab a handle and get busy with the other interviewees over a steak dinner

    Interview

    Very streamline standard process, phone interview then virtual onsite interview with two engineers. Phone was behavioral with one question thats a pretty open ended algorithm question. Onsite interviews were a little behavioral and mostly technical. One technical question per interviewer. Received decision a couple days after interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA (US)) in October 2020.

    Interview

    Applied online no referral. First round was a phone interview. Was told to expect a mix of technical and behavioral questions. The interviewer was very pleasant and friendly. Was notified of final round invitation a week later.

    Final round came around and the coldness of the interviewers caught me off guard. The first interviewer was late and did not introduce himself to me. He could not figure out how to share his codility link with me. I had to answer all of his questions verbally without sharing any screen. The second final round interviewer talked about himself and then my resume and questions about myself for the first 80% of what was supposed to be a technical interview. At the end he only allowed me around 5 minutes to work on the technical problem through codility. I verbally solved it and said what I would do if I had more time.
