    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com (Lexington-Fayette, KY).

    Interview

    First met the recruiting team at a career fair and later that day had a 2hrs interview with a Sr. Operations Manager. Next, a phone screen was conducted with the General Manager of the facility where I would later get an offer. I was flown to the site of the fulfillment center and had a tour of the facility, completed a math test (work rates, flow rates, etc.), and conducted several interviews that consisted of a panel of 5 leaders in that particular facility and then a 2-on-1 with the GM/HR Head. The process took approximately 4hrs.

    Area Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Louisville, KY

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    interviewed at Amazon.com (Louisville, KY) in December 2013.

    Interview

    After submitting an application online, I received an invitation by email to do a webcam interview. This was the second webcam interview I've ever been asked to do, and unlike the first one, Amazon's webcam interview only gives you one shot to record answers the questions it asks. Luckily the questions were easy, with one short answer (typed response) question at the end. After a week or so, I was invited to visit a fulfillment center for a tour and 4 quick 30-minute interviews. Seeing first-hand how Amazon implements simplicity and customer-focus into every process in its fulfillment center was very interesting. I received a phone call 1.5 weeks after the visit to notify me I will not be receiving an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked a case study question about how to handle a situation where a worker arrived late to work.   Answer Question

    Warehouse Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lexington-Fayette, KY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Amazon.com (Lexington-Fayette, KY).

    Interview

    I was hired through a temp agency that Amazon works with to provide temporary labor for their "peak" period. This period is usually starts at the end of October or early November and ends after Christmas. The temp agency has every thing well organized and took you through some pre employment testing to see if you have the basic competencies that may be required at the Warehouse. After those tests were taken and you have submitted all of your proper documentation you can either be hired on the spot and given a start date or if they don't need you yet you will be notified when they will need you. There was never an interview just passing the skills test and watching a video that tells you what to expect. It was a pretty cut and dried process

    Interview Questions

    • It was a very easy process. No real interview you talked with a person that discussed your schedule and work assignment preference.   1 Answer

    Amazon Warehouse Worker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hebron, KY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Amazon.com (Hebron, KY) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Went through the staffing agency SMX. It was a very quick process, you take a computer assessment and they ask you various question about yourself and abilities. You take a mouth swap drug test, give your diploma, watch a short video then if you passed the drug test, you walk out with a job. I didn't go through a formal interview once hired on. We were only required to take another assessment test, once passed, you take the drug test, they review your points and then you get an email that says you have orientation. Orientation is basically a bunch of videos about the policies, code of conduct and culture of Amazon. Then fill out tax forms.

    Interview Questions

    • There was no interview, so I didn't receive any difficult questions. The only thing was having to pick your schedule at that moment.   Answer Question

    Warehouse Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Amazon.com (Lexington-Fayette, KY) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Very easy, almost no interview, take a saliva drug test and a background check, if all comes back, you're hired. You will work for a staffing agency in most cases and then when you convert to full-time, you will interview with someone you already know in the department you already work in. Its easy to get hired, both good and bad, easy to get a job, bad because there is basically no filtering.
