    Interview

    I applied online. I got a phone interview after 2 months. I was pretty surprised when I got the phone interview. The interviewer asked me several behavior questions for the first interview. He is a really nice guy and really informative. Remember to take some notes during the interview and you can use them in your next interview and ask questions about it.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon in April 2016.

    Interview

    I knew someone at the company who forwarded my information to get me the initial interview. Had two phone calls with HR but didn't advance past that process. The technical questions were fairly difficult. Behaviorals were not bad at all. The interviewer was very pleasant and helpful through the process. Good communication and good experience overall despite the result.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (San Jose, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was a online test followed by a round of two interviews. The online test is really simple, with easy coding questions. My interview went really well, was really expecting a offer though. The process in completely unpredictable. In phone rounds I was asked questions about trees, algorithms, data structures, time complexity. It started with discussing my previous project work.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    It was a one-on-one on-campus interview. They hosted an informal info-session the day before the actual interview. And it was a mix of both behavioral and situational. The interview was not particularly hard, but if you are an international student, please be sure that they will sponsor your work visa. For the position that i applied to, they didn't have the quota to sponsor.

    Interview

    First Round Interviews. There are two 30 min back to back interviews. They ask behavioral questions and go deep into your stories. It is important to review your stories and have a clear message to deliver, they want to know the impact of every story and the take outs you had. The interview is very informal and conversational.
