Interview Details – Dropped off resume at career fair, but I believe I was contacted due to my resume on my college recruiting site. I was contacted by email asking me to sign up for an on campus interview (I signed up for a Friday). I met with two interviewers, spending about 45 minutes with each one, and answered one main technical question for each. The following Monday, I got an email telling me I would receive an offer via phone call the next day. The email asked me to choose my start date (they start interns on Tuesdays but let you choose when you start).

Very Difficult Interview
I applied online and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Amazon.com in October 2011.
Interview Details –
Initial interview scheduled by email. Scheduled two interviews immediately. First interview went extremely well, with lots of questions I felt I nailed. Second interview was plagued by poor VOIP connections and a heavily-accented interviewer. Both were extremely technical in nature. Data structures, linux knowledge, and a bit of multithreading. Recruiter contacted me for a third interview, which was scheduled and cancelled (by them) twice. Received a notice saying they were "not moving forward" with my application two weeks later.
Another three weeks later, I had an offer sitting in my inbox. At this point I was happily working at another company as an intern, so it was promptly rejected.
Reason for Declining – Was already working elsewhere by the time the offer arrived.
People - all smart, focused and data driven.
Mission - shared vision, play for the long term, make big bets, make choices, own them
Values - Creates incredible workforce with broad reaching influence
