Software Development Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and 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 Question – 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
Reason for Declining – My compensation was almost same ... declined because of that...
