    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon.com (Seattle, WA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    The process started with a call from HR who briefed about the position. There were two telephonic rounds after which I was called onsite. Onsite interview was 6 rounds- all asked the same kinds of questions, java scripting and creating test scenarios. Each round was a one-o-one interview and lacked diversity of questions.

    Interview Questions

    • java questions. I was told any scripting experience would suffice. but everyone wanted to hear java.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon.com (Seattle, WA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I had quite a poor experience, all things considered. I was contacted by an in-house recruiter at Amazon. After speaking with the recruiter, I discovered that a couple of my colleague from past positions had migrated up there so I became pretty jazzed about the prospect of working there. After the initial interview with the first recruiter, I was handed off to another recruiter that was suppose to set up the phone interviews. I never heard back from that recruiter, so I contacted the original recruiter who then set me up with yet another recruiter to set me up with 2 phone interviews. Both phone interviews were simple and to the point, mostly technical but simple. After the 2nd phone interview, I emailed the recruiter only to find out that he had been terminated and I was to be set up with yet another recruiter. I'm sure they had a reason for all these mix ups but, I was never informed. It was all very awkward. They flew my out to Seattle for an in person interview, which went horribly. 2 hours, different people, and a lunch that I didn't have time to finish. All of the questions were extremely technical and they didn't ask me any questions about my resume or my character as a quality assurance engineer. In the end, they did not extend me an offer. All things told, if they did, I would not have accepted.

    Interview Questions

    • Right out of the gate before I even got a chance to sit down at the table, I was asked to write a function that tests the lengths of a triangle using legitimate syntax. Ouch.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon.com (Seattle, WA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Interview process was extremely slow, but the interviews themselves were pretty good and would really test a person's intelligence. 1) First round of Recruiter Screening - Basic Questions about Experience and Relocation(Since I am moving from SF to Seattle). About 20 minutes 2) First Phone Technical Screening - QA Questions, Coding Questions, Behavioral Questions. 1 hour 3) Second Phone Technical Screening - Coding Questions and Behavioral Questions - 75 min 4) Whole day on-site in Seattle, lasted about 5 hours, talked with 5 people- A lot of problem solving and coding questions as well as QA scenario questions.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Didn't Negotiate, had other offers, just stated those. Pretty Decent Package for Seattle Area which is definitely cheaper compared to Silicon Valley where I am currently working. Extremely in-depth Relocation Package which really made my decision about moving.
