Type of interview: Off-Campus Interview
I came to know about the Microsoft off- campus drive through LinkedIn. I applied for the Online test through which I can apply for the drive. I referred to geekplacement while preparing for the drive. There was one coding round, one group fly round followed by three personal interviews in the off-campus interview process.
CoCubes Online Round
More than 1500 students enrolled for the drive. In this round, there were three coding questions of medium to high difficulty level. The paper was of 75 minutes in which two questions should be executed perfectly, and one partially. The three coding question were Delete leaf nodes with a value of k; Given a Binary tree with next sibling, pointer populate next sibling using constant space without using a queue; and The trapping Rainwater Problem. The results were declared within 10 days. I scored an 89 percentile and was eligible to apply for the Microsoft drive. On the basis of my percentile I received an email from Microsoft that I was shortlisted for the further rounds which were to be held at Xavier’s Mumbai.
Group Fly Round (Onsite)
This was a written coding round. Here the students were divided in a group of 6 with one mentor allotted to each group. We had to write the logic for the codes and explain our approach to the mentor of our group. 2-3 students were selected from each group by their approach followed. The first question was to Rotate an n*n array by 90 degrees and Calculate the sum of two non-negative numbers X and Y. If the number of digits in sum is equal to the number of digits in X, then print sum, else print X. The results for this round were declared within 30 minutes. The shortlisted candidates were offered the hall ticket for the face to face interview which was to be held at Microsoft Gurugram.
Face to Face Interview
There were three personal interviews in this round, which were Technical round 1, Technical round 2, and HR round.
Technical Round 1 (Duration 1 hour)
I was seated at the reception when my name was called for the first round. I entered the cabin, and there were two interviewers there. They went through my CV before the interview began. After some time one interviewer left. The interviewer asked me to introduce myself and explain my final year project. After this, he moved to the technical questions. He asked me array, linked list related codes. He gave me a code to perform the union of two strings and asked me to optimize it. After viewing my code, he gave few scenarios where my code would fail. He did this intentionally to confuse me; he was checking my confidence and ability to handle the problem. I explained the scenarios he raised with full confidence to which he seemed quite impressed. Then he asked me some database queries and few questions on multi-threading. Then he asked me to wait outside.
Technical Round 2 (Duration 1 hour)
After five minutes my name was called again for the next round. The interviewer straight moved to the questions. He asked me questions related to JAVA, linked list, arrays, strings, and networking. He asked me to write the approach for solving a Binary Search Tree and then asked me to write the code for it. At last he asked me some questions related to my final year project.
HR Round (Duration 30 minutes)
I was told that the next round would be held after the lunch, so I went to the canteen and had my lunch. I was sitting at the reception when a lady came and asked me to follow her. I went into her cabin for the interview. She asked me how my previous interviews went. She asked me some basic questions about my hobbies and interests. Then she moved to the questions,
- Why do you want to join Microsoft?
- What do you know about MSN?
- What are your career goals?
- How will you be productive for our company?
