SDE-intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com in March 2014.

Interview Details – Applied through the university career services. Got a call from Amazon for a phone interview in the next week. There were 2 45-minutes back to back coding interviews. The interviewers were helpful and asked questions on the coding logic. One of the interviewer asked about the past projects.

Interview Question – There were 2 coding questions. First was to extend a class that contained the names and ratings of movies so as to get a list of similar movies and the movie name with the highest rating. Second question was pretty simple, given an array of integers, print first two numbers that sum upto 10.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Amazon.com in February 2013.

Interview Details – Applied through campus career fair in university and got called for 1:1 on campus interview which lasted for about 30 minutes. Questions asked were mostly design questions, and a few technical questions from projects on your resume. Scalability is most commonly tested during interviews. Interviewer provided helpful hints wherever needed

SDE-Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com in March 2013.

Interview Details – I applied on the university career website. Got a call saying they are interested in interviewing me. Setup two interviews for a scheduled day. First person dint call as I think he couldnt connect, or got busy. Second interview went smooth. He asked me to write a simple program, swapping two variables values. Then asked about linked list, hash-maps, pros and cons of each, time complexities. After a week second interview was setup, he asked questions on similar lines. Like, writing a code to reverse a string, discussed time-complexities, different sorting algorithms, and different data structures.

Got a call after a long while with an internship offer.

Interview Question – All questions were easy   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation for interns
