Amazon Warehouse Worker Interview

Amazon Warehouse Worker

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Amazon.com in October 2013.

Interview Details – Will interview with temp agency and complete their computer testing to see if your basic skills include being able to find the correct item on a chart. Must pass this test to be hired. Plan on a drug test at the time of interview. Mostly they are just trying to fill the spaces required by Amazon and the interview is not difficult. You will watch a video on what to expect at Amazon and be given a time slot to start work if hired.

Interview Question – There are no difficult questions. Just be prepared to take a basic test.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation

Interview Details – Hiring is through a temporary employment agency. Periodic "conversions" offer employment to those who are considered solid workers. The company seems to not enjoy as good a reputation as they might like. It seems many aspirants to employment decide to move on rather than deal with the issues/problems inherent with Amazon.

Negotiation Details – NA

Warehouse Associate Interview

Moreno Valley, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Amazon.com in June 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online at Amazon.com. About two weeks later I got an email asking me if I wanted to set up an appointment online. It was a direct hire event for a new warehouse opening up in Moreno Valley. I set up an appointment that wasn't for another three weeks. I arrived at a hotel that had Amazon signs showing you where to go. When I went inside there was some amazon employees sitting at a few tables, and there was a line of people waiting to speak with them. When I finally sat down to speak with them, I expecting an interview but instead the employee asked for my ID and my diploma and told me there was no interview and then she gave me a contingency letter offer of employment. I got the job as long as I passed the background check and oral drug test. The lady sent me to another room with about 20 other people who got the job to take our oral drug test and watch a video about Amazon and what they had to offer to there new employees! It was by far the easiest interview I had ever been to in my life. Although it wasn't really an interview because they didn't ask me a single question.

Interview Question – No questions were asked.   View Answers (2)

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Take what they give you, which is not bad considering it's a warehouse job.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com.

Interview Details – I had four interviews that ran about 30 minutes each. All of them seem to be reading from a Q&A script with canned answers. one interviewer was confused when my answer went deeper than the one he was given.

Warehouse Associate Interview

Warehouse Associate
San Bernardino, CA

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com in August 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online as I heard there was a new Sort Center opening in my city. About 2 days later I received an email requesting to set up a phone interview date. They called on the dot and while I talked to other associates later on who had different experiences, my phone interview just asked me questions to confirm my identity and application as well as questions I had already answered in the online application as far as if I can lift up to 49lbs or work in a potentially 90 degree warehouse which of course i answered "Yes". The phone interview was about 5 minutes and the lady then sent me an interview to schedule an in person interview at a hiring event. I scheduled my time through the interview email and showed up to the hiring event where about 20 other individuals were waiting to be called in. It was a large room with many leadership/management interviewing. I was interviewed by a particularly imposing individual who was to be one of the Operations Managers at the Sort Center I was applying to. We chatted about why I wanted to work for Amazon and who I was, a college student looking for part time work with opportunities to use my degree once I had graduated. Soon enough he told me he would move me forward to the next part of the process and walked me to the HR desk to wait schedule an orientation date and start date as well as get started on my drug test/background check.

Interview Question – He asked me if there was any question I was prepared to answer but that he had not asked.   View Answer
