    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.

    Warehouse Associate Interview

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Amazon.com (Lexington-Fayette, KY) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Had a phone screen that went terrible. Military recruiter said I had great content; however, the delivery was not the best. Went to interview and tour LEX2 and was offered position 1 week later.

    Interview Questions

    • Amazon wants to hear about how you took a process and made it easier and more efficient. They are all about "new" ideas. Data driven and goal oriented are a must. Understand how to allocate labor based on Units per hour.   Answer Question

    Warehouse Associate Interview

    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.
