Warehouse Associate Interview

Warehouse Associate
Murfreesboro, TN

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Amazon.com in November 2012.

Interview Details – The hiring and interview was very quick. I went in to the 3rd party staffing agency, did the online app, and within 20 minutes I was taking a drug test for the job and within the next hour we we're having orientation for the job in which I started 4 days later.

Interview Question – There weren't really any difficult or unexpected questions mainly because the online application pretty much too up most of my time. This being factory work, the whole process was fairly impersonal.   Answer Question

Warehouse Associate Interview

Warehouse Associate
Lexington-Fayette, KY

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Amazon.com.

Interview Details – I was hired through a temp agency that Amazon works with to provide temporary labor for their "peak" period. This period is usually starts at the end of October or early November and ends after Christmas. The temp agency has every thing well organized and took you through some pre employment testing to see if you have the basic competencies that may be required at the Warehouse. After those tests were taken and you have submitted all of your proper documentation you can either be hired on the spot and given a start date or if they don't need you yet you will be notified when they will need you. There was never an interview just passing the skills test and watching a video that tells you what to expect. It was a pretty cut and dried process

Interview Question – It was a very easy process. No real interview you talked with a person that discussed your schedule and work assignment preference.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – not able to negotiate at all. they said here is the hourly wage you will be starting at. any questions?

Warehouse Associate Interview

Warehouse Associate
Indianapolis, IN

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com in May 2013.

Interview Details – I was a conversion hire from seasonal to permanent. I worked as a seasonal employee for 6 months and kept my rate above required and never earned any points against me. When they started the conversion process I received a letter to inform me that I was accepted and needed to go online to fill out the application before attending the question and answer session which included a background check and drug test. When the results from those tests came back satisfactory I received my orientation date and attended orientation where I filled out my paperwork to be converted over to amazon associate.

Interview Question – no questions, though background checks take longer for some than for others.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – none

Warehouse Associate Interview

Warehouse Associate
Patterson, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Amazon.com in August 2013.

Interview Details – I first got a phone interview that lasted about 10 minutes. They asked me to tell them of three times I encountered some safety hazardous. And asked about my previous employment. After that they told me I was going to get an in person interview and I could schedule it online. The in person interview was not to hard. They ask all the same questions a retail employer would ask. also they dont care if you dont know how to use the machines they use. Everyone will be taught even if you already know.

Warehouse Associate Interview

Warehouse Associate
Middletown, DE

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Amazon.com in August 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online as a temp through ISS Agency and after I passed everything I was able to schedule an interview. I arrived and there were 6 stages. (You must have your ID, SS Card or similar documentation and GED/HS Diploma)
Stage 1: Sign in at desk
Stage 2: Go to a computer to enter your personal info.
Stage 3: Go to another computer and identify 20 products that were on a cardboard box. (its really easy, if you don't pass this, no interview)
Stage 4: Go to another computer and enter personal info again.
Stage 5: Look at some video about Amazon while you and others wait to be interviewed one-on-one
Stage 6: The actual interview; very simple. They ask why you want to work there, which position and shift you prefer. Give you a mouth swab for a drug test, perform a background check. If anything is available for your availability you will be given a Start Date, Shift, Position, Hourly Pay Info and Orientation Date.

PS: Apply early to get the shift that is best for you.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work here?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – You can not negotiate the pay rate. There were different shift options available and I was able to chose the most convenient shift for myself, but you can not pick your own hours, just the options they add (most were 4-Day 10hr shifts for overnight, day or afternoon)
