    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview Details

    Simple process. I had 2 rounds of phone interviews for 45 minutes. After 5 weeks I was invited to a meeting in a hotel. They gave very little notice. It was 4 hour interview with 4 people. I received a call from their HR within 24 hours saying they're moving forward with an offer but I will have to decide which group I want to work with. I spoke with 3 different hiring managers over phone, and decided to go with one.
