    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyderābād (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyderābād (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter had short-listed my profile from one of the job portals and contacted me to schedule an online coding test on interviewstreet.

    The questions were:
    1. Find all prime numbers before the given number n.
    2. Find the kth largest number in a BST
    3. Find the transpose of a given matrix.
    4. Given a directory with several different files. Find the student with max avearge number.
    one more, which I dont remember.
    Time given was 2 hrs.

    After going through, had the first telephonic round.
    Questions asked were:
    1. Find the missing card in a deck. The cards are passed as a stream of input.
    2. Find the median of 2 sorted arrays.
    3. Construct a tree from the post and preorder traversals. [Asked to mail the code for the same within 15-20 mins.]

    I messed up and hence within a week got a regret mail, but the experience helped me in identifying my areas of improvement.

    Interview Questions
    • Find the missing card:
      I gave an O(n) space approach using hashtables, but he wanted a much better optimized solution, after some thinking thought of using only required bits or using the cards as an A.P., however these thoughts came after the interview.

    German Analyst - Accounts Receivables Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyderābād (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyderābād (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview Details

    It was a very lengthy process and too many rounds of interview!!!!
    1) First of all, a German expert called and talked to me in German. He asked me to introduce myself, talked about my work experience etc. to test my German language skills. It took 10-15 minutes.
    2) Then, a German lady called me from Germany and talked to me in German language. She asked me various questions about my introduction, past job profile, importance of team work, how to handle individual task, etc. It took 20 minutes.
    3) Then, one Operations Manager called me and again interviewed me for half an hour. He asked me again various questions about last job, work experience, strengths, achievements, etc. etc. !!

    After all this finally they called me in the company office for the Panel interview. Guess what!!! Another 6 rounds of interviews were waiting for me!!!!!
    4) They gave me two things to do. First, a list of topics from which I had to choose one and write an essay on that. Second, I had to answer (in German) an email written in German language.

    5) Then there were 5 rounds of interviews back to back (each interview half an hour long) with 6 managers; one was manager of German team, two were operations managers, then there was line manager, then his manager and then country head for that process I guess. All in the hierarchy took my interview!!! God, I was so exhausted!!!! And the questions were tough, very very lengthy interview and grilling also!!!!!
