    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter after handing in resume at a career fair. Invited straight to on site interview. Had to prepare a case on a M&A scenario, or inventory management. 4 rounds of 30 minute 1 on 1 interviews, two standard behavior, one "bad cop", and one bar raiser. Case assumptions will get challenged, but relatively straight forward

    Ask basic question first. For example, intro your self and what's your strength and weakness. The most important question is about do you have any experience about financial analysis. Which database did you use before.

    Mostly behavior question, and some small case problems. Be prepared is the best i can say. The first give you a phone screening, mostly 40min. Then they call you to the headquarter for a 4 hour long interview.

    I applied online - 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.

    First round of phone interview last week. 45 minutes. They asked one resume question, several situational questions and a technical question. Finally, they let me ask them questions. It's a must to hear what the interviewer said clearly.
