    Interview Details

    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...

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

    Interview Details

    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.
