    Fulfillment Associate Interview

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online 10/19 and immediately received an email with contingent offer and link to fill out I-9 and schedule hiring event. I scheduled for the first available time which was on 10/23. The hiring event was held at the staffing agency which had all kinds of sketchy looking people outside and walking in and out. There was a line out the door to check in and if I really didn't need the job probably would have left just because the environment was so uncomfortable like a welfare office! The hiring event consisted of a group of about 15 individuals sitting in a semi-circle around a tv screen that went over what to expect with amazon position and then sticking a stick thing in our mouth for 10 minutes for the drug test. As the drug test was completed we were told to sit back in lobby then await our turn to be individually called up to take a picture for badge (I wish I would've known, I would have worn make up) and select an available shift. Then we waited to get called by other lady individually to take a copy of our proof of identification. They said to check email and that it could take up to two weeks for drug and background test. That same day I got an email from the background check place saying they needed additional info because addresses didn't match report (I recently moved and don't even get mail at current address which I informed is why it wouldn't show on background), I immediately called and provided info because I did not want any delay on hiring process. On 10/25, I received email that everything cleared and to schedule orientation/start date. The only date available was 11/7 which is almost two weeks away but I guess I can be patient until then. They sent an email with link to finish all on boarding paperwork and set up direct deposit which I've completed and now I just wait for orientation. Overall the process was simple and I appreciated not having to do a one on one interview because I get so nervous and sweaty usually for those. However I wish they'd do the hiring event somewhere else as the atmosphere in that staffing agency is worse than applying for food stamps!

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Amazon (Phoenix, AZ) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I found the job posting on LinkedIn and after filling out online forms I was told this is a position Amazon is looking to fill fast. There was an online technical test it requires for this position, which I signed up for within a few days. I was told I passed and someone from Amazon contacted me again to let me know that the next step is an in person interview. I was asked for my availability two weeks out. I complied and provided several days that I was available. I was told I would be setup with an interview within 48 hours based on my availability. Four days later I was provided with a interview date that I was not available. Another day was provided by Amazon. Again, not a day I provided Amazon. Finally, I was told the postion will be filled before two weeks and I would likely never get an interview. What a waste of time applying for. The Amazon communication was terrible. All over email too, with no phone number ever provided.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Amazon (Phoenix, AZ) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The total process took 2 months. It consisted of a phone interview. Then a face-to-face interview that included some logistics questions with a role play. If you read the details of the job and come up with things you've done in your history around that, you'll do fine with the interviews. However, they very much want to know if you will follow safety rules, how well people with follow and listen to you, and how effective you are at solving problems.

    • How do you feel you would be at leading a team?   2 Answers
    • How would you implement the safety practices?   1 Answer
