    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon.com (San Bernardino, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter, who scheduled a phone interview, which involved several behavioral questions and a math question. Two days later, I was invited to participate in on-site interviews. All expenses were covered. The onsite interviews consisted of four interviews, three with operations/senior operations managers and one with an HR manager. Candidates were also asked about a written sample they had provided earlier and another math question, which they complete before interviews begin. The interviewers were courteous and helpful and the atmosphere non-threatening. There were several candidates going through interviews at the same time, but all interviews were conducted on-on-one.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon.com in June 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview was not difficult but the manager who interviewed is big on managerial/supervisory question. I didn't have a lot experience doing supervisory tasks. My experience is handling/managing operation and working with a team and not as a direct manager. Math question is easy, same question posted here.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon.com (San Bernardino, CA).

    Interview

    First a phone screen. It's simple. Read about the culture of the company first. Panel interviews were awkward. In a room with several other candidates interviewing at the same time. Again. All personal experiences need to relate to company culture outlined on website. HR, Finance and Operations all took stabs at you. Some showed absolutely no interest while others were happy to meet you. One work flow problem that was broken down by finance. Most important to have a logical way of thinking about it rather than getting the answer. It's ALL ABOUT THE CUSTOMER

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amazon.com (Seattle, WA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a Operations & Military Recruiter @Amazon. After I confirmed that I was interested I provided him my resume. About 1-2 weeks later, I received a Phone Interview Confirmation email from a Recruiting Coordinator - Amazon Worldwide Operations Talent Acquisition. I was given a 30-minute time window and was to be interviewed by an actual Operations Manager a Fulfillment Center. I dialed into the Conference Room & entered a Security Code that verified I was in the correct area. I dialed in 5 minutes early and was the only one there. I waited for 48 minutes, and individual that was to interview me never dialed in. But at the 55 minute mark, someone did join the room. Another candidate. I exited the call and dialed the Recruiting Coordinator, but no answer. So I emailed her. I have yet to hear anything back.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Amazon.com (Tacoma, WA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Had multiple emails from multiple recruiters stating that "another" associate would email the time and date for the initial phone interview. Finally received the initial phone interview from an Amazon Senior Operations employee almost half my age. Although the questions where scripted and to the point, the interviewer seemed to be in a hurry and somewhat unmoved by the dynamic answers I was responding with. After a week I was sent another scripted email stating they where thankful but where moving in another direction.
