I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Amazon.com in March 2014.
Interview Details – Two phone calls covering the following:
Phone call 1-
a. Write a function to remove the nth last element from a singly linked list
b. Edge cases
c. Tests for that function
d. Input and output validation using status codes
e. API design considerations and error handling for the function
Phone call 2-
a. Functions to reverse a linked list recursively and then iteratively
b. Determine if two strings are anagrams, various approaches, space and time complexity
c. Given two singly linked list heads, determine if they are merged
d. Find the merge point of the two lists
e. Test the merge/intersect function, consider edge cases
f. Space and time complexity for all algorithms and data structures questions
Interview Question – Most unexpected- Recruiter was difficult to reach and had about <12hrs warning before scheduling interview. The actual interviews went well- the engineers were easy to talk to and walked through the problem solving. Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com in February 2014.
Interview Details – Applied in university career fair, a week later got an email to schedule on campus interview. Had the interview a couple weeks later, 45 minute interviews back to back with two software engineers.
Although the email indicates you should study databases, operating systems etc., the majority of the questions are on data structures and algorithms. Lots of linked lists, hash maps, binary trees etc.
Got acceptence email a week later.
Interview Question – There are a lot of questions that can be solved by arrays, sorting can be done in O(nlogn)... but they are looking for more than just correct answers, having an answer with a high time / space complexity won't help you.
There was a tough question about linked lists with next and arbitrary pointers. View Answer
Negotiation Details – No negotiation, standard intern payment
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Amazon.com.
Interview Details – Emailed the recruiter my resume personally and got an email two weeks later saying that I have to set up two one hour phone interviews in the following week. Phone interviews were pretty much all technical with very little behavioral.
Phone interviews started off simple, "Let me tell you a little bit about myself", then "tell me a little bit about yourself." My first interviewer went straight from that to coding. You'll use an online program so he sees what you're typing. Other interviewer went through a bunch of short questions that were challenging, then to the coding.
After the two interviews, I got an offer a week later. All in all a simple hiring/interview process.
Interview Question – How do you create a routing table? Answer Question

Given a binary tree with different values on each node, find those values N which N%7 == 0.
Why C++ has destruction.
Given an int number, return the number of 1s in base 2. For example, 6 = 0000110 return 2.
What's the difference between the stack and heap when they are initialized.
What's multi-inheritance and why it's bad.
2. Sent you a Collabedit link befor the interview.
Binary tree level traversal.
Interview Question – What's the difference between the stack and heap when they are initialized. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I missed the call from HR and then received an official offer letter from him. The team is not in Seattle but in Amazon Lab 126 Kindle team. I thought it's OK and accepted it.

Interview Details – I got the interview from a college career fair here at Cornell in March. I was approached by a recruiter a week later and then scheduled my interviews. They were two phone interviews 45 mins each with two engineers. First one went smooth, mostly about object-oriented design. I used Java for this one. The second one was more algorithmic. I didn't solve it with the optimal complexity but he said it was good enough. For this one I used C++. Two weeks later I got a reply with an offer!
Interview Question – Classic interview question about matrixes sorted row and column wise. Answer Question

Interview Details – Recruiter reached out at the end of November asking to schedule 2 back to back interviews which we set up for the next week.
