Brand Specialist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA

Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA).

Interview

Some individuals may have had a more favorable interview experience, I on the other had did not. The entire interview was application based with zero chance to explain your background or previous work experience (and how it relates to the position). I tend to get slight testing anxiety and the entire process felt exactly like that. While I can't go into too much details due to the NDA I signed, I felt that I wasn't quite set up for success, for various reasons that I won't go into. The only positive aspect of the experience was just how generous Amazon was for covering virtually the entire trip. It's definitely worth the effort if you're from out of town for that reason.

    Interview

    Applied online for position. Answered a few questions. Next had to take an online test. Was 2 parts-first was math/reasoning based and the second was a personality based-both were timed. The personality was easy to finish within the time given. The math part was a bit harder and was harder to finish. After this I was asked to come to Seattle for a day long interview. Morning was an individual case study and the afternoon was a group case study. After each part we had one-on-one interviews about the work we had completed. Did not ask any personal or behavioral questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I really enjoyed the interview at Seattle. The interviewers were nice and informative about the position. One thing to keep in mind throughout the onsite process is that it's just an interview. Do not freak out because you can't handle test anxiety. Take a deep breath, explain your thought process and display positive teamwork/leadership. If you read previous reviews, you can tell many candidates were salty that they did not receive an offer. This position is not for everyone. If you struggled during the interview process, I don't see how you can survive full-time. Best of luck to the ones of you who have an upcoming interview, hope this helped.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview consists of an individual and group exercises. Nowhere during the entire interview was anyone given a chance to talk about prior experiences. I can't go much more into it because I signed an NDA.

    If you're flying in from another part of the country, it's worth it to check out Seattle. If, however, you're from the area, don't waste your time. You can check Glassdoor and see that they hire a very small amount of people for the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Three stage interview process: First step is an online data analysis test, you get two sets of data (a personal finance sheet, a company's branch distribution information) and have to make quick judgements and simple calculations. This is followed by a short personality quiz (Are you a team-player? Strongly agree, etc.). Second step is a phone interview. Third step is an in-person interview meeting with 6 different people one-on-one, preceded by an interview prep phone call. Best advice is to know the leadership principles and be able to answer questions ("tell me about a time you took a risk...") in a S.T.A.R. format.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    Do you want to play a game? I did two seperate interviews for 9 hours each and no one I spoke with in my group got an offer. From my knowledge they are using you to test for a new ibterview style and bot hiring anyone. If you are from outside Seattle it is worth the trip otherwise complete scam.

    Individual assessment, group assessment. discuss how you got the answers for these assessments.
    I applied online, was prompted to take an assessment, and then was called in for the interview. This is a job focused entirely on numbers, so if you're not a numbers person, this is not for you.

    Interview

    Asked to do an online assignment of data interpretation. Didn't pass it since I am neither business nor econ major. But if you are, the questions should be super easy for you. I haven't learnt any of those but still can get the answer like half of them.
