There was no interview. I simply applied online and recieved an email about a month and a half later stating that they would like to meet with me for an orientation.

    Interview

    The initial interview was done over the phone and I was invited to the job fair they were having. I went to the job fair and met with a recruiter and was offered the job on the spot. The challenging part of it was that I didn't start work for 2 months from my initial phone screen. At that point they were not in a hurry to start anyone. Overall it was a good experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Amazon.com (Charlotte, NC) in October 2014.

    Interview

    For seasonal hires, you just had to sign up to go to their presentation at an allotted time. It's a group presentation. The details of the company, job, hours, etc. were explained and then you were given a drug test. Once you were cleared, you're brought on. It was very easy.

    Interview

    This was a new warehouse site launch, so there wasn't an interview. There was an online application with a screening of questions that determined the hiring of the employees. If you are selected you just have to show up.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no interview questions for the warehouse associates in this particular circumstance. This was a new site launch so there was only paperwork to be filled out and a presentation to watch. I am not sure if they interview for the future employees for this position but that is how the new site warehouse launches work.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Hiring is through a temporary employment agency. Periodic "conversions" offer employment to those who are considered solid workers. The company seems to not enjoy as good a reputation as they might like. It seems many aspirants to employment decide to move on rather than deal with the issues/problems inherent with Amazon.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Amazon.com (Moreno Valley, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online at Amazon.com. About two weeks later I got an email asking me if I wanted to set up an appointment online. It was a direct hire event for a new warehouse opening up in Moreno Valley. I set up an appointment that wasn't for another three weeks. I arrived at a hotel that had Amazon signs showing you where to go. When I went inside there was some amazon employees sitting at a few tables, and there was a line of people waiting to speak with them. When I finally sat down to speak with them, I expecting an interview but instead the employee asked for my ID and my diploma and told me there was no interview and then she gave me a contingency letter offer of employment. I got the job as long as I passed the background check and oral drug test. The lady sent me to another room with about 20 other people who got the job to take our oral drug test and watch a video about Amazon and what they had to offer to there new employees! It was by far the easiest interview I had ever been to in my life. Although it wasn't really an interview because they didn't ask me a single question.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Take what they give you, which is not bad considering it's a warehouse job.
