I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon (Chicago, IL) in October 2016.

The interview process was very straight forward. I applied through a listing on my school career website. I was then emailed an assessment to take with a 48 hour time limit. I took the assessment one night, and received a call the next day. The flew me out to Chicago, IL the following week. I had two 1:1 interviews. One interview was very situational based/case study.

    Online assessments to determine how you think and how you would react as an Area Manager. Behavioral questions in a one-on-one in-person interview. Two 45-minutes questions. They flew me to Florida, paid for my hotel and rental car. It was all through university program and a military program. Forty candidates. We were not competing against each other. If you are qualified, you will get the job.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon (San Diego, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was called in for an in-person interview in October 2016, which I drove some 120 miles to. Everything was exceedingly accommodating and expenses were reimbursed. Interview was normal, behavioral questions. A couple questions were different than the usual ones, but still normally behavioral. There was one management case question that covered a discrepancy in payment of an employee and how you would handle the situation; it was to see thought process as opposed to getting the right answer. I am currently deciding on the offer. All-in-all a good experience. I had two consecutive 1-on-1 interviews that each lasted about 40 mins. This was the only interview.
