Business Analyst Intern Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Amazon.com (Seattle, WA) in May 2014.
Applied on Amazon.com/careers, recieved an invitation for a 45 minute phone interview 5 days later.
First Interview: Interviewed with an Amazon employee, walked through the resume and asked 1-2 behavioral question, 3-4 SQL questions then drilled into business case questions. The interview lasted ~25 minutes.
Final round interview consists of 2 back-back 45 minutes phone interviews and a writing exercise.

2. Do you think amazon should place a cap on the number of products a seller can sell? Why or why not?
3. If you have to think of a product that would be profitable to amazon, what would it be and how would you data mine the result?
4. If amazon places a cap on the sellers and sellers can only sell 100 products instead of 150, if you were the seller, how would you determine which products to keep? And how would you data mine it?
5. How good are you at Excel and SQL from a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being the best?
