    Warehouse Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Amazon.com in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with the new Amazon Distribution center that will be opening up in chesterfield(Chester) this fall.
    I went through the typical steps: Applying online,waiting for an Email confrontation and then finally, I was given a chance to be interviewed through the phone.

    The phone interview process consisted of various question.Typical run of the mill questions.

    Why did you leave your last job?
    How would you practice safe procedures?
    What was your most difficult confrontation?
    How flexible is your schedule?
    Explain a time where you had to demonstrate your flexibility at work.
    If you saw a Co-worker stealing what would you do?
    Why Amazon?
    Would you prefer Day time/Night time shifts?
    What is your safe place attitude?
    Do you believe people are Dishonest?
    Describe a time where you had to do something when you were not told to do.

    The interview process was about 15 to 25 minutes long.Your dealing with a recruiter from Amazon not a manager.The recruiter that I dealt with was a bit robotic,I could tell she had some sort of disapproval/loathsome interest between the interaction between the two of us.One huge negative on my part was that I could barely understand some of the things she was saying.She seemed mildly ok with breaking down what I could not hear her say,but I could intuitively tell she was becoming exasperated with repeating herself.At one point she even skipped over a question because I temporarily lacked the ability to understand what she was saying.The recruiter sounded like she wasn't having a pleasant day while I was keeping my answers gift rapped with a positive enforcement.I felt like my reign of calm,but up-beat attitude while on the phone with the recruiter was shot down by her impetuous atmosphere.

    At the end I was not offered a 2nd interview.All that was said was:
    "I hope your employment with Amazon goes well,good luck and thank you for you time."

    • :"Do you believe people are dishonest?"
      "I've never really dealt with a dishonest person while at work.If anything they're dishonest with themselves."

      The recruiters reply:"So you've never dealt with a dishonest person?Even though my previous statement implied that,I responded by saying"No,I can't say I've dealt with one before."The next response received was more typing.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Amazon.com in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was sent an email to schedule a phone interview. I scheduled it for the following day. The recruiter called me a little bit early so try to be ready at least a half hour before your scheduled time. The lady who interviewed me was nice and polite, she made me feel really comfortable. Here are a few of the questions she asked:

    1. Why do you want to work for amazon?
    2. How do you practice safety in the workplace?
    3. How do you "keep up the pace" when you have a lot to get done?
    4. Give an example of how you dealt with a confrontation at work?
    5. Describe a time when you worked on a task without being told to do it?
    6. What shifts do you prefer to work?
    7. What do you already know about the position you applied for?

    Overall the phone interview was very quick and went smoothly. Most of the questions were straight forward and were asked in a conversational style. I was told I needed to fax proof of highschool or college graduation. They said they would contact me via email if I am invited to the in-person interview. Wish me luck!

    Interview Questions
    • "Explain how you keep up the pace." I was taken off guard by this question and asked her to be more specific.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview Details

    I completed the online application. The application process includes what I would call an aptitude/interest survey. I was given the opportunity to upload high school and college diplomas as a PDF file, which I did. Within 24 hours I was emailed a link to set up a telephone interview.

    The phone interview was this morning. The interviewer was polite and pleasant. I believe *every* question that she asked is listed in the reviews here. I was so thankful that I came here before the interview. I had a chance to rehearse my answers in advance. The interviewer ended by saying I would receive an email within 24 hours to set up an in-person interview. The email came instantly and my in-person interview is scheduled for later this month.
