I applied online and 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.
Interview Question – Tell me about a situation in which you used data to solve a problem Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.
Interview Question – If we are shipping 2 products to the same customer but these products are contained in different warehouses, What are some of the factors that we need to consider so that the transportation cost will be minimal and the customer will receive the products in the least amount of time?
