    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Amazon.com in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    First interview was a phone interview with a hiring manager. I only had one interview, but applied to at least 7 positions. My interviewer had a heavy accent. It was hard to understand what he was asking about. The interview lasted 1 hour. He did not ask any technical questions or agile process.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview Details

    I had two 30-min phone screening interviews, very similar between each other. Questions:
    - Describe shortly your background
    - Tell me about a situation in which you used data to solve a problem (and a lot of follow up questions based on my answer)

    In the end, I had 2-3 minutes to ask them questions.

    Technical Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was given 2 phone screens by Amazon.com employees. The first was by another technical product manager. That interview went over many of the situations that a technical product manager might face with questions as to how I would handle the situation. The second phone screen was given by a technical development manager. The interview questions were more algorithm based rather than specific programming language questions.
