I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Amazon.com in March 2011.

Interview Details – Interviewed on-campus for a MBA internship position.
The recruiting process consisted in two rounds.
The first round was a 1:1 45 minutes interview consisting of some fit questions and a simple business case with some maths.

I successfully accessed the second round which was basically the same thing except that there were two interviews in a row with two different people.

Did not get an offer at the end.
