    No and this belongs on the GD board, not the C++ one.

    I have, but never over the phone; my first interview was some typical questions about my coding background, and finally analyzation of a C function - and what it prints out. Actually, there was a bug in the function and it would give a seg foult when compiled by saying this I landed a second interview. During the second interview I had to write a function in c or c++ that counts the number of days between to given dates - piece of cake. I took these just to get experience in interviewing, as I really don't want to work for MS (even though I have nothing against them). They are offering to fly me out to their facilities for further interviews either over spring break or the summer - if I wont land anything closer to home I'll go.

    Good luck.

    Geez why can't they ask any DirectX questions? I'd be in for sure.

    >>man , thats ridiculously easy<<

    it is pretty easy but you have a time limit of 20 minutes and it is written by hand; then you have to code it and try to compile it - you're allowed 3 minor bugs until it compiles (this seems really silly to me, but oh well). They're also looking for pretty efficient solutions; a friend of mine wrote it and it worked, but it was ugly - they gave him a chance to fix it up.

    Dont worry, the person on the phone interviewing you actually works for Kmart.
