I applied online and interviewed at Amazon.com.

Interview Details – Very typical interview, 45 minutes, a few behavioral questions and a technical question that required some thinking. Not many different types of questions, but the ones they asked followed up on each other, requiring very in-depth explanations on past experiences. I would suggest knowing your experiences very well before using one of them as a response to a question.

Interview Question – Why didn't you want to major in mathematics   Answer Question
