I wouldn't disclose anything that isn't asked. However ... If they ask if you have a criminal background of any kind you need to tell them. You can't lie. If the job is in banking and they need a credit check and you've filed bankruptcy then they have a right to know that, unfortunately. You NEVER *have to* disclose information such as past relationship history, your marital status, information about your kids, why you decided to move to another state, etc. If you're trying to "hide" a past job, beware. I applied for unemployment compensation last year and the employment commission interviewed me and the rep had my EXACT employment history from the past TWENTY YEARS!!!!! ~ T

What questions are asked in a Microsoft interview?

Interviews at Microsoft are usually spread across 3 to 5 rounds on a Video Call or On-Site basis. The first rounds of the interview include initial screening DS/Algo-based questions like Rearranging Strings, where you are given a string "S" and your task is to rearrange the characters of the string "S" in such a way it does not contain any two adjacent characters which are the same and Print Nodes at Distance K From a Given Node, where you will be given an arbitrary binary tree, a node of that tree, an integer 'K' and you need to find all such nodes which have a distance K from the given node and return the list of these nodes. There are many more coding questions that can be asked from you in a Microsoft interview like Word Wrap, Node Level, Sum at Kth level, Total Number of BSTs using array elements as root node, Total area of overlapping rectangles, Nth Element Of Modified Fibonacci Series, Dice Throws, etc. If you want to see and practice more Microsoft Interviews Coding Questions based on their difficulty levels, you can check out Top Microsoft Coding Interview Questions. This round can also include Technical Questions like current work projects discussion and other technical problem-finding and solving experiences. In the second round, you are generally asked System Design Questions. Examples of system design questions that might be asked are creating a wrapper to allocate memory efficiently when you are given a System API to manage memory which allocates memory of size some bytes, and then deep discussion on why you used X data structure why not Y. There might be more rounds included in the interview than the two mentioned above, but the major topics of each interview are similar to these two. The final round is a simple Human Resource(HR) round. This round includes basic HR questions that you must be familiar with, like Who is your role model? What keeps you motivated? Why Microsoft? Why are you leaving your current job? If you have cleared the earlier interviews and you fulfill technical hiring standards, the HR round will ensure you are a cultural fit; this interview will primarily consist of behavioral questions for this purpose. The interviewer taking your interview is responsible for ensuring that you don't have any blind spots or mistakes in your analysis. This interview will also make sure that if Microsoft decides to make you an offer, you are sure to accept it. If you fared well in all other rounds before this and the HR round interviewer does not find any problems, the interviewer will "offer" the company to you. If you are considering targeting Microsoft, you might want to check out Microsoft Interview Experiences at coding ninjas for a better understanding of the Application Process and the type of questions asked.
