    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    It was pretty well organised. They gave a good overview of what is expected in the interview so that we can be prepared to take it. They concentrate more on problem solving and the data structures where though they don't expect you to immediately answer the questions they wanted to make a genuine try and valuate the approach.

    Interview Questions
    • How do you test the functionality of weather.com which takes a coordinates anywhere on earth and gives you accurate current weather information. After I given my plan which is to use automation tool collecting weather information from public weather station and compare results. I was asked what if there's no web service, no phone service, not even radio and you can't load weather forecast information from the public weather stations. Nor you can use historical value to test since the results need to be very accurate.   View Answers (2)

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Amazon.com in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online to many of their job postings, got a call from HR after a month. They had an hiring event , so after HR screening, they called me directly for in-person interview. Interviews started on time. I had 4 technical , 1 behavioral and 1 HR round, each for around 40-45 mins. All the interviewers were very helpful. At no point I felt uncomfortable. When I got stuck, they provided hints to help me arrive at answer. Overall a good experience in interview, they confirmed selection on same day and I got offer letter within a week.
