Application Details

Interview Details

I had applied for a number of Amazon jobs that I found on their career site. The particular job I was interviewed for, however, was not one I applied for: A recruiter picked out my resume from their database because he or she felt I was qualified. I was first contacted via e-mail on June 25 re: first phone interview to happen on July 2nd. Partly due to my failure to anticipate a land-line phone was not working properly, the interview had to be rescheduled to July 8. On July 20, a second interview was scheduled for July 22nd. On July 28, I received an e-mail stating they wanted to interview me in person. I responded right away but did not hear anything until July 30 when a tentative date of August 4 was scheduled. It was not confirmed until the day before. I met 7 people that day within a span of more than 6 hours. I got good vibes from some of the interviewers but not all. After the fifth interview, I was supposed to have a 45-minute break but there was a mix-up wherein I was left in a conference room and under the mistaken belief someone would be coming in any minute for a meeting with me. After 20 or so minutes, I grabbed a passer-by in the hallway and told him of my dilemma. He was very courteous and contacted recruiting. The recruiting assistant who showed up to get me back on track was very apologetic and super nice. I wound up being 15 minutes late to my penultimate interview. The last guy I met was a director-level recruiter who gave me his card and said I should call or e-mail him if I had any questions. I e-mailed him, but have not heard a peep out of him or anyone else. Since it's been 3 weeks and I've just seen a very similar job posted on careerbuilder.com, I am assuming they have not selected me, or anyone else, and are continuing to recruit for the position.

Interview Questions
  • Fourth interviewer used whiteboard to map out problem he was trying to solve and asked me to, on the spot, come up with a strategy. It was in essence being asked to do the job for which I was being interviewed.   Answer Question
