Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Amazon.com.

Interview Details

was contacted 2 months after i submitted the application online. asked me if i wanted to schedule an interview which i replied and no replies afterwards. the next week i followed up and the recruiter replied and scheduled an interview the very next day. very unexpected and the email said that if i wanted to changed to interview time 48 hours in advance. so how can i change it when they only informed me 24 hours in advance? i politely asked to get rescheduled and got rejected. interview was okay but i didn't prepare well.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted for a HR screening where they asked basic questions about why I wanted to work at amazon and took the opportunity to tell me more about the company. Then, I had a series of two 30 minute phone interviews with engineers where they asked me to solve some algorithmic questions. I was able to solve 3 of the four questions they asked. Apparently they each vote up or down and on a split, you have a third interview. I guess my answers were good enough because I didn't have another one.

    Interview Questions
    • There was a question about describing an algorithm for calculating the points within the intersection of two rectangles on a single plane.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. The offer was very competitive.

    Interview Details

    Applied through career fair. A recruiter contacted me around 2 weeks after, and I had two 45 minute back-to-back phone interviews. Didn't really study for it, so I didn't do well on the second interview which involved tree. The interviewers were very nice and respectful.

    I applied online – interviewed at Amazon.com in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initially I was contacted by a recruiting coordinator and was asked to provide some basic information (school, grad date, etc). After quickly responding, I received another email from my coordinator to take an online assessment. This coding assessment consisted of debugging simple functions like sorting algorithms. I was informed that I would hear back within the next week or so after they received my test results. I was not contacted again.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview Details

    This interview process was very one dimensional. They literally only asked me technical questions; nothing about me, what I was interested in, or anything like that. The process conveyed to me the sense that all they were looking for were code monkeys.

    Interview Questions
    • Question involving a large amount of data and how to parse it.   Answer Question

    I applied online – interviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview Details

    I applied on Amazon's career website, then they got in contact with me a while afterwards. I had two back-to-back phone interviews, each of which was 45 minutes long, with mainly technical questions. I did some online coding with a collaborative tool. I didn't think either interview went that well, but I heard back a few weeks later that I got an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked about how I would design a dictionary using data structures.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Amazon doesn't really negotiate for salary. I asked for an extension on the offer acceptance deadline, which they allowed.

    Got referral from my friend, reached back by a recruiter in about two weeks and scheduled two (or three? I don't remember) back-to-back phone interviews one week later. Received the offer in three weeks. I could choose which team I would like to join and they provided me three different options.
