    You may get one of the 234 system design questions that are available via google search or you may just get something that the interviewer decides to ask based on your resume.

    Standard questions like design MS shuttle system for SDE2. Wouldn't think they'd ask for SDE1

    Had 4 interviews with principal engineers and not a single Leetcode/system design question was asked. Only open ended questions were asked. Totally surprised me.

      Yeah azure compute .They called me for the onsite hiring event. I am trying to squeeze as much prep i can do in 3 weeks now. Even though i will not move to Redmond , i think this way atleast i can get a leg up on my LC prep for my future onsites. Any specific thing you recommend? I am trying to finish the Microsoft card under LC Explore section. Also did you hear back?

      Definitely do a lot of LC, especially MS tagged ones. You can expect at least 1 DP question( even though I didn’t get any) as this is an hiring event. My tip would be to be holistic in your approach rather than just focusing on LC which is the mistake I made and ended up getting 0 LC/similar questions. I didn’t get any feed back/ result from HR. I got an email from immigration department today to submit docs but looks like it doesn’t have any influence on the decision. Fingers crossed. All the best for your prep.

      Were the questions similar to LC problems? Was it LC easy/medium?

      They were all medium questions but it depends on the group that you're interviewing for
