*Another* Reason Why M$ SuX

Everyone is very much familiar with the word "M$", some consider it like an oxymoron to OpenSource, some consider it as the company who works only for their benefits, some consider it as a company who delivers only "Bugged" Softwares followed by "lots" of Service Packs to patch those Bugs. :)

Well *another* reason why M$ Suck is its so called "Rigorous" Interview process. Though the employers from called it Rigorous it was no less than a "non sense". I am a Final Year CS student from YYZZ college (find my college name yourself!). M$ IDC visited our campus for Recruitment.

They divided their whole day process as:
10:00 -- Algorithms Aptitude Test
13:30 -- Results of 1st Round
15:00 -- Group Test
16:30+ -- 2-3 Rounds of Interview
Final Interview.


We had just 2 questions for the Algorithm Aptitiude Round. Let me make it clear, the title was *Algorithm*, but we were expected to *write C code* for Serializing/Deserializing an N-ary Tree and *Pseudo Code* for MS word Spell Check. The time alloted for this round was *One hour*. I did write lot of crap and cleared the first round. And yes, the results were out by 14:15 than 13:30.

We were called to our Placement Cell for *Group Test*. To our surprise it was the first ever Group Test where every short Listed candidate was Interviewed *one-by-one*. I was waiting anxiously for my turn.

15:00 -> first 8 of 14 candidates called in. We were asked to wait for 1/2 hour.
15:30 -> None came out. I thot they 'll come in few mins. ( Waiting).
16:00 -> Still Waiting some one to turn up.
17:00 -> :(
18:00 -> 3 more, of the remaining 6 people, went in. I was still waiting.
18:30 -> I thought of quitting. but my friends made me wait.
19:00 -> FINALLY, they called my name. I went in an isolated room. There too I had to wait.
19:20 -> O boy, My chance came. I was already exhausted after such a long wait.
Recruiter gave me a *algorithm* question and asked to write *Perfect
Error Free* code with all test cases on *Paper*.
Now writing a bug free code is possible, but on paper. Though a little hesitant in beginning I did finish my code with few struck out lines and scratches. It took ten minutes for Interviewer to actually understand my Code. It looked like he had memorized that similar code before and just using *diff* in his mind to identify the differences in my code. He disagreed saying my code is wrong. Even after proving correctness of the program, that fellow was not satisfied. He finally told "Nice meeting you" with a sarcastic smile and asked me to leave. (it was 20:00).

I did not know whether I was eliminated from the whole process or still some more rounds. It was a very confusing scenario. Those people were moving from cabin to cabin. Other candidates too were called in and few sent out. All of us were in dilemma as to what was going on. One of them told results will be announced by around 20:30. The last list of candidates who got selected for MS came out at 22:30 and finally I did know I was eliminated.

The whole recruitment process was nowhere as per their plans. This shows MS though a Big organization "couldn't plan" a small interview process. They lack in basics of Planning and Design itself.

Now you know why the M$ Products you use is *not* Bug free. ;)
