Application

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

Interview

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

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

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Amazon.com (Seattle, WA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    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 :)

    Interview Questions

    • NDA covers exact questions. Coding on a whiteboard, both design and algorithm coding questions.   Answer Question
