    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through Amazon's career site. Emailed back two days later to schedule a phone interview. Recommended me to look through a list of Amazon "Leadership Principles" to familiarize myself with. The job does not have a defined career path, but if you want to work for a company like Amazon, I would say go for it.

    Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Amazon.com in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a coordinator the day after I sent in my resume to set up a phone interview for a week later. I received an email confirmation regarding who I'd be interviewing with. A week roles around and when I answer the phone there is a man on the line when the person I should have been speaking with was a woman. She was ill so her boss filled in, which is nice, they could have just rescheduled but didn't. Interview questions were quite basic asking about experience with office products and experiences learned from past jobs. I was told that likely the next step if they were to move forward would be another phone interview. About a week later I emailed the coordinator asking where I might be in their process. She emailed me back saying that I hadn't been selected.

    Interview Details

    Entire process took about 3-4 weeks. Standard initial phone interview (30 minutes) followed by onsite interview (about 3-4 hours). Keep in mind that all your interviewers will be typing on their laptops the entire time in order to take detailed notes about everything you say. Do not get discouraged if they aren't engaging in conversation with you.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview Details

    I found amazon to be a very hard company to get an interview with unless you have an MBA or have someone internally refer you. I was fortunate enough to have an interview as I was internally referred, The process is long (normally 2 phone interviews and then a 'day' of interviews in the office). I made it to the 2nd phone interview but did not get any further as I did not have the specific experience they were looking for.

    Interview Details

    I arrived at was shoved in the deli for the first of four 45 min interviews. Be prepared to feel like a bit of numnut whilst you are dressed in a suit and everyone else is in dress down. The guy that came to collect me was twenty minutes late, saying that reception hadnt informed him that I was here. The interview consisted of the four interviewers bombarding me with competency based questions designed around their leadership principles. They said to me on numerous occasions - oh it is not a job where you get much recognition and sometimes you will only be spoken to if you get something wrong. Nice. They are not interested in you as a person at all.

    Interview Questions
