    Application

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

    Interview

    They came to campus, but had only a limited number of times available so I had to do it over the phone. The guy who interviewed me over the phone didn't seem interested in doing the interview. He asked me to write a few algorithms in Java and then asked some conceptual Java questions as well.

    Declined Offer

    Interview

    Interviewed for Amazon for 3 different positions. Each time, the interviewers we're unorganized and scrambling to find out where to go next. Quite possibly the worst interviews I've experiences

    Interview Questions

    • Feels like people are picked randomly to give you interviews and have only hours to prep. Very few questions related to the position I applied for.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Heard there is very little work/life balance. Don't want to be on call ever.
