Tax Manager Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Amazon.com.
I had two phone calls that varied from 15 minutes to 30 minutes. Then a few days later I received an email for an in-person interview. The in-person was about 6 hours. It was intense and exhausting, but there were no trick questions.
- Before my interview I had to write a memo and during one of my interviews I had to explain the technical concepts in the memo. It wasn't that it was difficult, it was just that it was unexpected. Answer Question
I was asked for my salary expectations before the in person interview. It was awkward but it's what everyone that comes to Amazon must do.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Amazon.com (Seattle, WA) in February 2014.
The process consisted of three phone interviews with an HR person, the hiring manager and a team member. After successfully completing those interviews, I was flown to the corporate headquarters to do in-person interviews. There were five interviews with each interviewer asking specific pre-determined behavioral questions. All of the questions related to the core principles. You should be ready to give examples of your own experiences for each of the principles.
- There were no difficult or unexpected questions. The questions were all behavioral in nature. I cannot give the specific questions asked because of the NDA I signed, but they all related to the company's leadership principles. Answer Question
