Interview Details

Applied online, and received a phone interview request after 2 weeks. The interview manager was quite nice but the interview was kind of difficult. They wanted to know every detail about you resume so be prepared to talk about your resume a lot. Anticipate some behavioral question as well.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by HR through email for on-site interview. 2-hour on-site interview with 4 hiring managers. Most of the questions are scenario questions. You will need to finish a case before 1 on 1 meetings. Overall, the interview is not hard if you are prepared.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Amazon.com in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Telephone interview. Took about 45 minutes. The interviewer seemed really cool. He made me feel easy before starting off. He wasn't looking for a pure finance graduate. I am from MIS and he understood where I stand when it comes to finance.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    1 Phone Interview

    2 in person 1 on 1 interviews

    The phone interview is with a manager, and s/he will ask fit, technical, and behavioral questions.... Some of the tougher questions had to do with being faced with a difficult/challenging situation, and the way you went about solving x situation. This interview is about 40 minutes.

    The in person interviews are longer, about 2 hours (1 hour per person). One will be easy, asking questions that are more fit oriented... And the other is a bar raiser of some sort that will test you on how much you really know, and test you on how you think... This one will ask technical business questions...

    Interview Questions
    • Say sales for x product is not looking good, and we have excess inventory stockpiled in our warehouse, what kind of business solution would you propose and what are the highest priority aspects of the situation would you consider?   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Amazon.com in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Received a phone call the night after an information session for an interview the next day. The interview was mostly behavior and focused on experiences that demonstrated the Amazon leadership principles. Definitely read over those and come up with your own examples beforehand. There was one interviewer, who was the head of the new rotational program.
