Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee in UC Berkeley, CA

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Amazon.com (UC Berkeley, CA) in February 2015.

Interview

Basic interview, talked up and down resume. They then asked me some basic software questions about stacks, queues, graphs, etc. We then discussed some of the standard behavioral questions. Second interview was more of the same but this one was more of a conversation than interview with only one real problem posed.

    The process was quick, took less than 3 weeks to schedule a phone interview. The HR interviewed me over phone.

The interview was easy and the interviewee was friendly.

    Interview

    Interviewed last week. Liked the people that interviewed me. I thought that I did well on the questions, but I haven't heard back from them yet. The first question I almost ran out of time because I was talking to him too much at the beginning. On the second one I completed the task quickly. Hopefully I'll hear from them in a couple of days.
