I applied through college or university and interviewed at Microsoft.
Interview Details I did an interview with Microsoft through recruiting at my university. I was offered a first interview based off of my cover letter and resume. The interview was about 30 minutes, quite relaxed. I suggest not wearing a suit, my interviewer commented on the fact that he liked that I didn't wear one (business casual instead).

Interview Details The first round was held at our univeristy's career center and was a very short 30min 1:1 interview. Very casual, we talked about our backgrounds and then the interviewer proceeded to ask me a couple questions. 1) why microsoft and 2) favorite microsoft product + how would you improve this product (hint: they are looking for the marketing mix in your response)
2nd round was in seattle. I was in the hotel for 2 nights but only one day of interviews. Interviewed with three separate people for 1:1 interviews.
