    Interview

    Two on campus interviews that were on the same day. Each was one on one with an engineer from some team at Amazon. The dress code was very casual and the engineers I spoke with were very friendly and easy to talk to. Each asked one question first that was technical and I solved it on a whiteboard and then we spoke generally about the company and my own background.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amazon.com (La Jolla, CA).

    Interview

    Went straight to the questions. Didn't really get to know me. Two 45min interviews. I didn't like the first interviewer - who told me to not think out loud. The second guy was actually telling me to think out loud and was peasant. Overall an OK experience.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview

    My interview was held on my university's campus. The process was basically two back-to-back 45 minute interviews. Both interviews had a behavioral portion on the first five minutes. The rest of was technical. The first interview dealt more with providing an algorithm to solve a problem, and analyzing the runtime complexity of the algorithm. The second interview was more focused on object oriented and design pattern questions. The interview was a overall a positive experience as my interviewers tried to provide a comfortable setting and the questions were not particularly out of the ordinary.

    • I would like to respect the NDA so I will not disclose the interview questions. I will say that if you plan on interviewing with Amazon, know your algorithms, data structures and their complexity.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview

    A very simple online screening, 4-5 questions that were very basic. Got an email to schedule the 2nd round phone interview. Was told that it would be only one interview of 45 mins. technical in nature. Topics could include algorithms, data structures, object oriented programming etc. Interviewer was calm and asked only 1 question. Gave 2 different answers and their complexities. Was asked to code one approach. Kept speaking out loud when writing code, telling him what I was thinking and doing. Reviewed my code once after I finished writing. Question was moderate difficulty. Interviewer was still calm, so couldnt infer any result of the interview.
