I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day – interviewed at Amazon.com (Hebron, KY) in November 2012.
Went through the staffing agency SMX. It was a very quick process, you take a computer assessment and they ask you various question about yourself and abilities. You take a mouth swap drug test, give your diploma, watch a short video then if you passed the drug test, you walk out with a job. I didn't go through a formal interview once hired on. We were only required to take another assessment test, once passed, you take the drug test, they review your points and then you get an email that says you have orientation. Orientation is basically a bunch of videos about the policies, code of conduct and culture of Amazon. Then fill out tax forms.
- There was no interview, so I didn't receive any difficult questions. The only thing was having to pick your schedule at that moment. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Amazon.com (Hebron, KY) in July 2011.
Applied on the Amazon.com website, and didn't here anything for about 3 weeks. I was finally contacted by one of their recruiters, and scheduled a phone interview for the next week with a Sr. Ops Manager. The guy called a day early, and at the wrong time. I was at work and couldn't take the call at the time. He left a voice mail (no contact #), so I emailed the recruiter to confirm that I didn't screw up the date/time. Sr. Ops Manager called me back the next day and did the phone interview, which lasted about 35 minutes. I thought that it went OK, and he said that someone would contact me within 3-5 business days. I waited seven, and still no response. Emailed the recruiter, and he said that he didn't have any info, but that his boss would be contacting me within a couple of days. 3 weeks later, and still no contact. I can read the writing on the wall...just disappointed in the lack of follow-through.

Phone interviews- basic behavioral questions- tell me a situation when you had to make a difficult decision.

I would just ask, they pay very well though.
