Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
No Offer

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Amazon.com.

Interview

Email from recruiter to set up phone interview. Set up two hour long interviews right after another. Questions were technical and behavioral in nature.

Second interviewer seemed to be distracted. I explained my thought process and ideas to his questions, but he didn't seem to be too focused. Ultimately ended interview earlier than allotted time.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com (Bloomington, IN) in September 2013.

    Interview

    On campus interview, the first interview was case based. They gave you a simple math problem to complete ahead of time and then you had to explain it to the interviewer. She then changed details of the problem and asked you to solve it again. It was difficult to even follow what she was asking for.

    The second part was a typical behavioral interview, the more you know about the lingo at Amazon, the better!

    Interview

    After applying to the Amazon legal internship through the Amazon Careers website, I was contacted by a recruiter to sit for a series of interviews. Each interview lasted approximately 30 minutes. I received a follow-up declination less than 3 days after the interviews. Because this position of an educational nature and was advertised through my school, I do not agree with Amazon's policy refusing to provide applicants with feedback. Try to find out precisely what they are looking for and what division within the department you will be interviewing for before the interview because the recruiters are inaccessible after the interview process.
