Interview Details

Resume and Portfolio Review:
Applicants were asked to submit their resume and portfolio. It took about a week to get the phone interview invitation.

Phone Interview:
I was interviewed by a UX team leader. It started with some ice-breaker questions and behavioral questions. Then, he asked me several questions about my previous projects and internship experience. We discussed a little bit about how Amazon (or say, his UX team) conducts user research. At the end of the interview, he asked me to rate my familiarity with several UX-related software (e.g. Axure, Morae, Microsoft Office, etc.).

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Amazon.com in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview first. Obviously they only have less than 20 researchers at Amazon, so they are despretely looking for interns to help. The phone interview was supposed to be 30 minutes, but after 15 minutes my interviewer told me: we will definitely have you here for a on-site interview and that's the end of the interview. After 3 days I had the onsite interview, which consisted of a one hour portfolio review and two 30 minutes 1:1 interviews. The portfolio review is quite standard, and the 1:1 interview is based on the portfolio review.
