    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Amazon.com in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I've done 1 contract and 2 full time positions phone interviews. All are very similar and straightforward.

    Interview Questions
    • In all of these phone screens, for the most part, they seem to want you to have done a project that is EXACTLY like what their department is doing (as if they can't relate what you have done with what you can do in the future). One interviewer keeps coming back to a work example which I told her I didn't have, but her persistence told me she had troubles checking the boxes on her sheet.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview Details

    -I had one phone interview

    -My6-hour in-person interview took place at HQ and included, a portfolio presentation, an an hour-long design exercise, and 4 hour-long interviews.

    I've heard from others interviewing here that the hiring team tries to throw you off during one of your interview, but I didn't experience this. The people seem nice, but not overly friendly. The office is clean and very quiet. The culture is direct; yet, people are nice.

    • The design exercise was to build an in-store kiosk experience.   Answer Question

    User Experience Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Amazon.com in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received an email from a rep to schedule a phone interview with the team's manager. The position was for a new top-secret AWS product and the team lead himself was going to call me. The phone interview was among the worst I had experienced. The interviewer was not friendly, and the questions all sounded like they were being read off some list. Stuff like 'what is your favorite website', or 'what would you change about it'. Overall I was very disappointed with the type of questions asked.
