Expecting an offer from Microsoft from an interview day event. I was told this event is for different levels, so I am not about sure about the level that I would being offered (yet to talk the details/numbers)

How is the Azure Data box team? Can anybody shed some light on the team matching process at Microsoft? Any other good team that I can request for with the recruiter? Is L63/L64 a reasonable level to expect for my experience? Would be great to get some guidance here!

    Can you share your interview experience? Kind of questions asked?

      So there was no System Design round for you?

      Surprisingly, nope. I doubt anyone else had either, might be wrong though.

      I was surprised to see lc hard as well. I came up with a solution, but could not optimize to their expectations in one round. And yes, it's one question per round.

      Does Microsoft actually uplevel candidates after their initial offer? Doesn't it depend on the HC? Or would the hiring manager/recruiter have the power to influence this decision?

      I was told I can expect atleast one round of system design, but to my surprise, there wasn't a systems design round. Not sure if this means anything for the leveling.

  • i’ve been to one of those msft interview day event with different azure team and they tend to down-level people to sde 2’s.

    in my case recruiter refused to even tell me it was 61 or 62, so i’m guessing it was 61. which, of course, i declined the offer

    i had to go through a formal interview loop for a different team to get 63

      I heard the same from other sources. And the lack of proper communication from their end is not helping as well.
