    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Amazon in February 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter, then went through the formal application and interview process. Had to sign non-disclosure agreements and then participate in 2 separate 45-minute interviews. One consisted of situational based questions, one consisted of behavioral questions, pretty basic interview stuff. I haven't heard back about an offer but it's only been a few days and they said it should take 5-7 business days.
