    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied through a staffing agency for SDET I position, Telephonic interview was conducted. As I was not aware of Amazon process much I couldn't prepare well. I got call from SDET II on scheduled time.

    She started asking about my current project, role in my project and difficulties I faced in that project.Then she gave me string problem, I had to write a method which should return count of numbers.

    EX: Input "AABC32DE4P%@23Pu" output should be 32+4+23 = 59

    I explained an algorithm to solve this, She asked me to it, I coded in Java. I took little extra time to fine tune it.

    Then she asked me to write some test cases to test the above function, I gave around 10 test cases.

    After this round I got mail saying I got rejected. I felt lack of preparation and awareness about interview process reasons for rejection.

    Very very long and tedious hiring process. Interviewers were great and asked relevant questions. They just need to condense their hiring process so that the candidates do not have to wait for long

    interviewed at Amazon.com in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was called by the recruiter and an online test scheduled. It was a difficult tree traversal and manipulation test. One test case set with values and the expected output was provided as a sample. I was not prepared enough with the APIs and so lost out. Overall it was a positive experience with the recruiter

    Software Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    2 telephonic round and then 5 onsite round.
    telephonic round focus on architecture and people management skills.
    same for on site rounds....

    there is not HR round kind of thing...
    on site round also has a bar raiser round...

    Interview Questions
    • they only focus on two things, generic architecture level discussion, how would you design a specific scalable system. Mostly question will pose an ongoing problem in the group and you need to brain storm solution with them. Nothing that difficult , it is only that you need to apply common sense.

      second thing they focus is your people management skills, again all question are really practical and if you try to give a bookish answer you will be caught..so if you do not really believe in your answer you will not be able to make it...for e.g. "you have an excellent super brillant team member in your team, better than all others but his behavior is bad, he does not talk properly if someone approaches him for help of solution, he literally insults them...what would you do"...
      Now reallt think about your answer...if you want to preach this guy..it will not work out..it is his nature...do you really want to throw him out of your team...ha ha you probably will not like to...because these kind of people bring 10X value to organization...what will you do...

      similarly there are many trap questions..if you try to be politically and inetrview wise correct you will not make it...
        Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    My compensation was almost same ... declined because of that...
