    Interview

    STAR. All they way. Situation Task Action Result That is all they care about that's all they want to know. Don't get chummy chummy, it don't fly. You will be interviewed by multiple people and if one does not like you, you don't get in!

    Senior Human Resources Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Amazon.com (Indianapolis, IN) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Very repetitive, tedious and somewhat bizarre. First contact was email list of questions. Second step was a video recording of yourself being asked 8 questions. No chance to ask any questions because it was one way communication. Third step was a phone interview with hiring manager and another Sr. HRA. Again, same questions from the first two "interviews". I asked about 6 or 7 questions, to which their responses really didn't answer them. Probably not something I would want to pursue.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was 3 hours long, starting with a tour of the facility and then 3 consecutive, one on one, 45 minute long interviews. After touring the facility for an hour the first interview went well and then I was exhausted. It all went down hill from there.

    Human Resources Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com (Seattle, WA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The process was a bit drawn out. After they initially contact you, two telephone interviews will follow back to back. The onsite interview took some time to set up, but understandable, as they are coordinating with 5 different people. Response time not as quick as I would have liked it.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of situational and behavioral questions.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Amazon.com (Concord, NC) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was built on STAR questions. In HR you go through so many situations but sometimes you just don't go through the situation you are asked during that interview and this was the case.

    Interview Questions

    • To well prepare look up several STAR questions tweak them and use them   1 Answer

    Human Resources Business Partner Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Amazon.com (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    Be prepared to answer really hard questions in the final interview. The process consisted of three interviews and a tour of the warehouse. You can tell that there is a huge culture difference between the people working in the warehouse and the people on HR. To be honest, it wasn't my kind of work environment. They're very casual though. Don't wear a suit to the interview.

    The interview process was quick and very straight forward. It consisted of one on-campus interview, 30 minuets long. One one-site interview at a fulfillment center that consisted of two 45 minuet interviews and a tour of the facility. Amazon moved quickly and notified me within 3-5 days

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview

    Difficult, with 2 separate 45-minute interviews following an hour-long fulfillment center tour. The two individuals with whom I spoke were kind and friendly; they both thoroughly enjoyed their jobs. If you live near one, this job is a great opportunity, but if you're not willing to move it might be a little more difficult. Thankfully, there are locations all around the country and the globe.

    Interview

    I spoke to a recruiter at my college's business career fair. A couple of weeks later, I was scheduled for a phone interview. The recruiter that interviewed me was great and we actually had a wonderful conversation along with the interview questions. I look forward to the next step in the process.
