    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Iaşi (Romania)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Very professional hiring process, kind HR personnel and the first week at Amazon felt like being part of a true global company where everyone matters and has a chance of their own. Overall, very beneficial experience being here. Take your shot too and you'll never regret it.

    I remember that feeling when stepping the threshold for the first time, not knowing not would be my next move.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Iaşi (Romania)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Iaşi (Romania)).

    Interview

    An initial technical phone-screening with an amazon SDE that, after a general introduction, comprised of a coding (in-browser) exercise, followed by basic troubleshooting,network and algorithm questions.

    I was the contacted by the HR recruiter for the on-site interviews.

    The on-site was comprised of 5 interviews, each 45 minutes long, with a food break in the middle, where a technical staff member takes you to eat out and during which you can ask questions about the general work-life environment at amazon. This part is off-the-track and the person you're eating will not be looped into the decision to hire you or not based on the eat-out discussions.

    The on-site interviews were related to coding and algorithms, networking, linux, troubleshooting and a HR interview (half in romanian, half in english).

    The people were very friendly and clarification questions were promptly answered.

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Iaşi (Romania)).

    Interview

    Phone interview and I had to write a program that rotated binary tree nodes and traverse it in dfs, bfs in around 15 min. The person that took my phone interview was really nice. On site interview was long, 4 rounds of interviews in a day, from 9 am to 3 pm. Some technical quedtions questions were awkward, others were alright. Final interview was with the manager. He was really friendly and made you fell comfortable but it was laid with boby traps, he would sometimes ask really serious questions out of the blue and you had to properly answer them.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you rotate left one node in a binary tree.   Answer Question
    • If you had to write a garbage collector that counted references and deleted an object when reference count was 0, would it work properly and why or why not?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon (Iaşi (Romania)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I found it efficient.They don't request knowledge of a particular technology. They are willing to invest time for you to learn a technology. But they do request that you have proper knowledge with the principles involved in development and engineering, and require that you are eager to learn and flexible.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Amazon (Iaşi (Romania)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    After getting in touch with someone from Amazon, the standard interview steps were followed. First, there was a phone screening, then 4 one hour interviews, three of them were technical interviews, 1 on 1 with different managers, then one hr interview. Besides the technical questions, you are asked to describe a difficult assignment, a situation where you were under preasure and how you handled it, etc
    I got a negative response from them, and when I asked for feedback, they said they couldn't give me any, but that they will answer any other questions I may have :-). This was rather strange, and perhaps also the fact that you don't get feedback during the interviews also. They kind of sit there and judge you, and you get that "hmmmm" from time to time, but they're not rude or smething, they just don't really build a conversation with you, you are strictly evaluated.
