Kinda bad. Wasn't happy with the way that I was treated. Basic algo question, you get around half an hour to do it. Hope I'll get a chance to apply again for the spot.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I applied online in September 2018. In February 2019, I received an email from a recruiter asking for additional information to set up a phone interview. I talked to a FTE who basically asked about what I study, why Microsoft, etc. I made it through to the next round for in person interviews. I flew out to Redmond where I did a presentation of my portfolio to a group of FTEs and then after lunch I had 3 interviews, each 45 minutes with the people who saw my presentation. I answered questions about my work ethic, my experience, and how I approach problem solving. Less than a week after that, I received my internship offer.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Microsoft (Redmond, WA (US)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    The hiring process went well. Very helpful recruiters assisting you in being successful, and the everyone I communicated with was very welcoming and passionate about what they do. I was very nervous, but the interviewers gave any information they had about the internship and went from one in-person interview to the next, and were thoughtful enough to even think about breaks for coffee. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Initial on campus interview followed by four on-site interviews. For the on-site interviews everyone was flown out to Seattle. It was overall a positive experience and included a short tour.

    I interviewed at Microsoft (Seattle, WA (US)) in January 2020.

    Kids were in the background during the interview so it was very distracting. I had a hard time figuring out the code since there were noise. Overall, I did not like the interview

    Interviewed last spring. Great process from beginning to end. Smart and nice interviewers, and all the questions were mostly to be expected. Everything went very smoothly and positively for me, although it probably depends on who you interview with.
