Human Resources Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Baltimore, MD
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon (Baltimore, MD) in June 2017.

Interview

I was applying internally for a promotion. I had one phone interview screening, followed by two phone interviews the following week. The interviews were done via phone because I was not in the same location as the job opportunity. All three interviews were intense behavioral interviews, so I spent a lot of time preparing for them. I recommend that anyone else do the same thing.

    They send me an email after applying online. Had an on demand interview for the first round. The second round consisted of two interviews - 15 minutes apart. The interviews consisted of mostly behavioral questions and a few case based questions. An understanding of the leadership principles is extremely important.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an HR Coordinator to discuss the position over the phone. I'd consider it an informal interview. She then scheduled two follow up phone interviews- and provided me with company material about their culture which drives their interview Qs. Those were handy and helped in being reflective in my approach to the Qs. 1st phone interview was with a person currently in that role who would be a colleague and the second one was an indirect supervisor. Those went well, and they brought me for an on-site. They have a travel agency company that handles those details and it was pretty seemless. The on-site interview lasted 5 hours and I met with 5 different people. They all approached the interview with very different styles, and everyone was really kind and full of (what seemed to be) genuine personalities. It was grueling but the topics were energetic and motivating. I really left there feeling positive about the company and that I left a good impression. Once those 5 people met to discuss my candidacy and made a decision, I received a call by another HR person- the Recruiter, with the update. I was told I didn't get the job, and the sad part was there was no explanation, but apparently that was their protocol.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon in October 2015.

    Interview

    First I had a phone interview that was only about 15 minutes long to answer some questions about myself and then a few days later was asked to come in to have an in-person interview. Two people interviewed me. They bounced their questions off of each other and focused on behavioral questions mostly. The process took longer due to needing people for specific shifts.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of 3 total, 30-minute behavioral interviews all of which were conducted over the phone. I interviewed with current employees who were working in different functions. Initially, I discussed which internship roles would be the best fit given my background with the recruiter before beginning the process. I was asked to rate my location preferences afterwards and had to wait 3+ months before finding out my placement contingent upon business need.
