    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amazon in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an Amazon recruiter regarding a specific position. She asked me to complete an application and take an online video assessment/interview. I completed both. She emailed me to say she was impressed with my experience and asked me to schedule a time on her calendar (online) for a phone interview. About an hour before the interview, she emailed to reschedule due to scheduling conflicts. I never heard from her again. I consider this very rude and unprofessional. I responded to every request in a timely manner only to be blown off. Why reach out to candidates if you are going to treat them so poorly.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    Hiring process consisted of four phone interviews. Questions were mix of behavioral questions, case questions, and opinion questions. The questions were difficult and required quick thinking. I would suggest to review most common behavioral questions and be prepared to answer any of them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was superbly structured:
    1st round: With Hiring manager for 1 hour. Behavioral Questions (Tell me about a time .... type questions) and SQL questions (Joins, union functions etc).
    2nd round : With a Senior BI manager. Pretty much the same structure as 1st.

    I was called for onsite interviews which consists of 5 rounds back to back for an hour each.
    All of them where behavioral but all the questions were related to atleast one Amazon principle so make sure you tie your answers to them. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART! Your answer HAS to be linked to one principle! At least!
    Interviewers seemed really nice an accommodating. The results of the interview process during each of the stages came out pretty quickly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The first round was a phone screening interview. I was asked few behavioral questions, as well as two business cases. The second round was in the Amazon office. I met with 4 people over 3 hours and was asked a lot of behavioral questions. I had read on Glassdoor that other candidates received some basic SQL , business cases, and basic statistics questions during their final round, but I received only behavioral questions. All the interviewers were friendly and seemed excited to meet me and talk with me. If you're preparing for an interview with Amazon, I suggest that you review all their leadership principles and try to weave them into your answers.
