Product Management Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Amazon.com (Seattle, WA) in November 2013.
A friend submitted my resume to Amazon's system. Took about 2 weeks and had initial interview with hiring manager. Passed through that and had an on-sight interview with interview team. It was a pretty standard process.

The process took 2 days – interviewed at Amazon.com in January 2009.
This was during campus recruiting. They sent 2 reps to campus. They made all applicants do 1 interview with 1 of the 2 reps for 1 hour on the first day. They then cut some people. Those that made it to the 2nd round came back the next day and talked to the other rep for 1 hour.
Interviews were both case-based. One case was about Prime. Other was about cloud computing.
