    Interview

    Although I heard that Amazon Software Engineers have very demanding work schedule, I applied anyway since it looks like the company is growing like crazy and needs lots of developers. The process was tough with heavy emphasis on technical questions. I wished I had remembered all my data structures and algorithms studies from school better...

    Interview Questions

    • Write the code to read in characters from a file and print out the top 10 most used. What if they are 32 bit characters? What if it’s a 4GB file and you only have 1GB of ram?   1 Answer

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview

    They came to campus, but had only a limited number of times available so I had to do it over the phone. The guy who interviewed me over the phone didn't seem interested in doing the interview. He asked me to write a few algorithms in Java and then asked some conceptual Java questions as well.

    Interview

    I got 1:1 technical interview. It was on campus interview and I was bit late due to some reason. I finally got rejected and I believe that was the reason. The person asked me to develop a stack in any language and dragged me to different questions from that. Around 30 minutes was the duration.
