Software Development Interview

Anonymous Employee
Anonymous Employee
Application Details

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

Interview Details

The whole process took 45 min. There are 3 programming questions which took 35min. Then asked about behavior questions. There is only one interview which is final round. But I don't think I did well. They really think highly of the programming algorithm skills since they always ask about how to do it faster.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Amazon.com in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied through University website. Was later called for a on-campus interview. I had 2 rounds of face-to-face interviews. Questions asked were regarding arrays in one interview and binary trees in another. They were not very difficult but they check for the corner cases and ask you to design the test cases to try and break the code. One interviewer asked me about my projects a little and then asked me about a cache design.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Amazon.com in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Went quickly after submitting a resume. The phone interview was the toughest of those I've had, covered the broadest range of questions instead of one problem in detail. Shared document for part of that. It went well and an onsite interview was scheduled very quickly afterward. It was the one dog-friendly office I visited, which would've been nice :)

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

    Interview Details

    Through a friend's recommendation I was able to secure an interview for the position. Unfortunately they gave me only a day's notice to prepare for the interview, which made things a bit more stressful. I had two 45 minute technical interviews, back to back, with each interviewer asking several technical questions over the course of the interview. There was nothing unexpected, as many of the questions they asked were available on this site as well as others.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult may have been things regarding design patterns, mostly because I had not previously studied them in class and could not describe any.   Answer Question
