I interviewed at Amazon.com in March 2013.
Interview Details – Applied for an internship at the Amazon Development Centre in London. Was sent an interesting technical test which I could complete in my own time - this was fairly simple but required some thought and I guess was also designed to test coding style etc.
After sending the code via email, they gave me an onsite interview in which we discussed the company briefly and then went straight into a whiteboarding problem involving the game Go, with a free choice of programming language (I chose Java).
I was quite nervous and this was my first experience of writing code on a whiteboard. I think they could see that I was not particularly confident in my solution (which I believe did work in the end), and that I took too long to progress.
Interview Question – Nothing particularly unexpected, the problem was around the right level, just lacked experience and confidence Answer Question

Interview Details – 2 interviews. One by a software engineer and other by manager. The engineer asked simple linked-list question. Manager interview was horrible. He wouldnt provide any hints at all. Just looked at me as if he had made up his mind not to select me. Good learning process.
