I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com.

Interview Details – I applied online with a resume but not a cover letter. Received an email around 2 weeks later saying that I was to be given an interview. It was an online interview where you recorded your answers and I was given about a week to complete it. It involved 7 questions and you were given up to 3 minutes to answer each.

Interview Question – Calculate units per week   Answer Question

Operations Leadership Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com.

Interview Details – One initial phone interview that lasted around thirty minutes. About a week later, I was told I would need to complete a math case study, and would be scheduled for two back to back phone interviews. The math flow question was not particularly difficult, they were mainly interested in seeing how you approached and solved the problem, not necessarily your answer. The first of the phone interviewers, an Area Manager, asked me to explain my thought process for the math question, and for the rest of the call focused on a more behavioral case study. The second phone interview was another Area Manager, who asked pretty standard "tell me about a time" behavioral questions.

Interview Question – A large case study question in which I was asked how, as a manager I would react to a certain unethical activity. As I responded, the situation was changed around in different ways and was then asked to explain how my behavior would change. Not extremely difficult, but definitely requires being able to understand the rules of a company and how a manager should properly treat his or her employees   Answer Question

Leadership Operations Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Amazon.com.

Interview Details – This was for an internship in their fulfillment center. The interview occurred during Spring semester on campus. There were two 1:1 interviews that lasted approximately 30 minutes each. There was a different interviewer for both. Most questions that were asked were behavioral or situational. Of course, you should know the company background as well as the job background. Experience with distribution would definitely help.

Interview Question – The questions weren't difficult. They were more like basic interview questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Received the offer fairly quick. Given a few weeks to accept.
