    Interview Details

    The initial interview was done over the phone and I was invited to the job fair they were having. I went to the job fair and met with a recruiter and was offered the job on the spot. The challenging part of it was that I didn't start work for 2 months from my initial phone screen. At that point they were not in a hurry to start anyone. Overall it was a good experience.

    Seasonal Warehouse Fulfillment Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Filled out an application online and received a reply the next day that said I met the basic criteria and needed to make an appointment for one of their hiring events. I attended the hiring event that consisted of picking a shift, taking an oral swab test to be submitted to the lab, and filling out paperwork. I was told that I'd be contacted within 7-14 days to schedule orientation as long as everything checked out okay. Two weeks later, still no response. I contacted Amazon and they forwarded my request to the HR department of my potential hiring location. Instead of taking five minutes out of their day to talk to me, they basically just re-sent the automated e-mails saying congratulations on receiving an offer and I'll hear from them soon. Another week went by and the background check company called and asked for the state and county of my D.U.I. from four years ago. This is when I became very annoyed because I clearly stated on my initial application that I had a D.U.I. in 2010 but they still said I met the basic criteria after thoroughly reviewing my application. Now here I am during the first week of December still waiting for them to complete my background check for the seasonal job. By the time they contact me again the holidays will be over. I have a very strong resume and ended up accepting a job with a lab making twice as much as they offered but at the time it seemed like a good idea to have a little extra money on the side. At this point, I will obviously decline an offer if one is given. Honestly, I was shocked when I went to the hiring event because it seemed like they were hiring anyone with a pulse, even people who showed up to the interview wearing stained sweatpants and a hoodie with holes in it. Somehow they can't seem to figure out why the company has such a huge turnover rate.

    Warehouse Associate Interview

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Walked in, got my contingent job offer with shift already assigned, watched a power point, 5 minute video I already watched online, and listened to HR rep talk about benefits. Went on a guided tour of the warehouse wearing head phones listening to an Amazonian talk about the company for about 10 minutes. Sat down in another room, got picture taken for ID, took an oral mouth swab drug test, and went home. Waiting on drug test and background to go through, 7-14 days. Very straight forward, seemed like a decent place to work, very clean, organized for the most part.

    Hiring at Amazon was the easiest job to ever get. They never really interviewed me, but instead I just took a sorting test on a computer and did a mouth swab drug test for fifteen minutes.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.

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