I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Amazon.com in February 2014.
Interview Details – Had two phone interviews, one with the hiring manager and another one from someone from the team. The interviews are highly behavioral (why amazon, tell me about a time when you solved a problem using financial analysis, etc) and usually include only one technical question (what factors would you consider when building a new fulfillment center, how would you price amazon prime, etc), but the difference is that second interviewer will really grill you on the details in your behavioral stories. Know your resume in detail and have stories prepared on each of amazon's leadership principles. They are pretty late on following up with the decision and don't provide feedback.
Interview Question – How did you manage to land your previous job? Answer Question
Interviewed at Amazon.com
Interview Details – After a first round interview in the morning, I was asked to come in for the final interview later in the afternoon or the following morning. I liked that the entire interview process was very quick. I was asked a lot of specific questions about their services such as Amazon prime and Amazon locker--you need to be familiar with Amazon's services in order to do well.
Interview Question – In the final round, I was given a pricing strategy question to complete on Excel which I had difficulty with because I did not know the excel function needed to compile the raw data I was given. Make sure you know your excel functions before heading into the interview. Answer Question

Interview Details – HR person was very helpful in guiding me through several open positions and which she felt I would be best suited for. Then quickly sent me job descriptions to review and I could make my decision. Then the follow up to schedule a phone interview with hiring manager was very quick. Interview with hiring manager was very professional and thorough and I was able to ask questions as well.

Interview Question – Lots of small cases such as problem solving questions and how do u make a decision questions. Behavior questions are tough as well. Answer Question
I applied online and interviewed at Amazon.com.
Interview Details – Hiring process took about three weeks. After the standard two phone interviews, I got an on-site interview. Everyone was very interested and open. The conversations were challenging and everyone was on their a-game. I enjoyed the challenge during the interviews and actually just had great conversations. In the end I did not get an offer because not everyone was convinced the gap in specific experience could be bridged without much training.

Interview Question – Why amazon? Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com.
Interview Details – I applied through campus. There were two 30 minute interviews over phone on the first round.
The first ten minutes of both the screening interviews involved introductions, describing my experience etc..
The first interviewer then asked me some behavioral questions like tell me about a situation when you led a team, Why is this significant, What did you do to not get bogged down by details and concentrate on the bigger picture etc.. The second interview was largely a case.
I was invited for the second round to Seattle where I had four interviews. Three behavioral rounds mostly asked about my experience and difficult situations. There was excel exercise which required some data analysis.
Interview Question – The excel exercise was specially tough for me. It is NOT related to finance. Answer Question

Interview Question – How are you going to save me $10 Million View Answer
I applied through college or university - interviewed at Amazon.com in February 2013.
Interview Details – First rounds were pretty basic. They just asked me about my resume, not a whole lot of behavioral questions. Mild case questions, just "walk me through your line of thought," style. The second rounds, in their Seattle offices, were intense. They were very probing into behavioral interview stories, and they asked lots of case questions. They were not super clear about what things meant - I've also interviewed with consulting firms, known for difficult case questions, and I've found their approach more straightforward than Amazons. I think their interviewers are told to be tough.
