    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Munich, Bayern (Germany)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I had 4 interviews in total and applied online. The interviews all happened in a row, which was a bit tiring. Very competence based questions (eg. tell me about a time you received critics). I also had to solve a case study. The process in general was very fast and recruiter was very responsive. Though you get the feeling once you're hired they care about you anymore.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amazon (Luxembourg (Luxembourg)) in April 2016.

    Brief self-presentation with all the other candidates, then a group project with a strict time limit to be presented to the interviewers. As a second stage, there was a single assignment regarding some proposals of initiatives to improve the company's products and services. The interviewers were friendly and they allowed short breaks between activities. Overall a challenging yet positive experience.
