La Jolla, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Amazon.com in April 2012.

Interview Details – The interview process was on-campus at my local college and consisted of two 45 minute interviews. Everything was run super smoothly, I signed up for a interview time through the campus online system and was twice placed in rooms with my interviewers. My interviewers were nice and responsive, and after finishing the designated interview, responded kindly to a lot of my questions I had about how their respective teams @ Amazon contributed to the company as a whole and how much they enjoyed their jobs.
