    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Amazon.com in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online a few months ago and received an invitation from a recruiter to take the amazon online assessment test. It was a link to hackerank.
    The actual interview consisted of two pretty simple coding questions and a logic test part.
    I was given 30 mins for each coding question and 35 mins for the logic part(25 questions).
    NOTE: Time flies really fast during the logic session. You should work fast.

    The first question had to do with string manipulation and the other question was on bit level manipulation

    Telephone interview. Took about 45 minutes. The interviewer seemed really cool. He made me feel easy before starting off. He wasn't looking for a pure finance graduate. I am from MIS and he understood where I stand when it comes to finance.

    Quality Assurance Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview Details

    The phone screen for the position was good. The discussion with the hiring manager went well (both on phone and in person).

    The in person inteview was a bit odd at times. One interviewer cancelled and some had not even read my resume. Most of the interviewers were great to talk to. One interviewer however had been up late working the night before and seemed a bit off. He asked me what programming language I was strongest in and then proceeded to ask a question in another language.

    The lunch interview with the hiring manager was good. They were easy to talk with and exciting about the project.

    Recruiting at Amazon seems a bit unorganized. Granted the people felt bad about their mistakes though...
