    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Interview

    I got a referral from a friend and got contacted for a phone screen. I was asked a LC easy question and a few follow-ups. Passed that and was invited to an on-site (virtual).
    There were 4 on-site interviews. 3 technical, 1 behavioral. In the technical ones, I was asked one LC easy, one medium and one non-LC medium level. The interviewers were very friendly and helped me when I got stuck.

    I don't think I did amazing, just well enough. I tried to make a connection with each interview and talk to them as if they were my coworkers.

    Got an offer 1 week after on-site. The whole process took about 1 month.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview

    I applied for the position at Microsoft's career website. The recruiter reached out to me and scheduled the initial screening round.
    1) Round 1: Phone interview (30mins)
    Asked about my job background
    Solved a string problem in 15mins

    2)Virtual Round of interviews(3 interviews)
    I got a response from recruiter within few days saying the team is interested in interviewing you further.
    This was scheduled for 23rd July. I got an email from recruiter on 20th saying they have cancelling my interview as team has elected to move forward with another candidate.
    This is very weird situation and I feel is not appropriate for the team to make a decision on your capability even without the interview.

    Finance FRP Program Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Microsoft.

    Interview

    Good experience! The interviewer on the phone was very strict, but asked typical behavioral questions. Didn’t get too technical in the first round. Didn’t get a superday but that must be because I didn’t know too much about FRP programs.

    Interview

    First round, white board. The interviewer asked me to stop talking and just write my code on the white board so I was a little discouraged then. I was recommended to go to final round, but I wasn't actually selected, or something went wrong on their end.
