    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Amazon.com (Seattle, WA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    The interviewer called on time. It took about half an hour. The questions were about basic data structures/ algorithms questions. Some of the topics we talked about was:
    Sorting algorithms.
    fibionacci sequence
    Decimal to binary conversation.

    The interviewer asked Big O notation for all the algorithms that I told him. There was a question I couldn't hear. I asked him can he ask the question again but he skipped the question.

    He asked how to improve the algorithms you are talking about.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Amazon.com (Seattle, WA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Three phone screens, with roughly an hour of technical questions for each one. About 3 weeks between each interview and response.

    Questions covered data structures, object oriented design, Java specifics, graph theory, and system design.

    3 weeks after my last phone screen I received an email that I was not being selected to continue. I was told to reapply in 6 months. After asking for feedback, I was told Amazon does not give feedback.

    Overall I was very displeased with how long the process took.

    Application

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Amazon.com (Seattle, WA) in July 2010.

    Interview

    First interviewer called, about 10 minutes late. Seemed quite rude to me. When I asked what is this role, he said writing software that's all, nothing more. Asked me why I am interested in Amazon. I said great place to work... his counter was where did you hear that...etc... I was surprised 'coz I read before Amazon interview process is quite professional, I guess this was just an exception...

    Asked me difference between hash and binary tree...some questions from hashing, which one to use when. Asked me to code to find out whether two binary trees have the same structure (e.g. same right subtrees and same left sub trees by structure, not necessarily by value). I gave him a recursive answer, although I was not convinced, he seemed satisfied. Anyway. Asked me to send the code. He also asked me the challenging project I worked recently. When I gave some details (which I did during my Dell days) he said he won't be interested about the detail!!!

    In the second round, another guy called. Asked me some question from Resume and gave me a prime number code. I did write the code, he apparently scrutinizing every step. That was it.

    Did not get a call for the onsite.
