Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Amazon.

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.

Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amazon (UC Berkeley, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Basic interview, talked up and down resume. They then asked me some basic software questions about stacks, queues, graphs, etc. We then discussed some of the standard behavioral questions. Second interview was more of the same but this one was more of a conversation than interview with only one real problem posed.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Provo, UT) in November 2014.

    Interview

    After a first round phone interview, which lasted half an hour I was emailed a project. I was given a set amount of time in which to complete the project. The project was very open ended where certain assumptions had to be made, which you had to be prepared to give reasons why you made those assumptions. After the allotted time I turned in the project and the following day I had two separate forty five minute interviews. The first was a hard core evaluation of my project, and the second was an overview of my project followed by typical interview questions.

    I interviewed at Amazon (Santa Clara, CA) in October 2014.

    It was a good experience. I had a phone interview during which I was asked about basic Machine Learning algorithms and a programming question. The interview was for almost an hour. The questions were more situation based and the interview was friendly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon in March 2014.

    Interview

    The process was quick, took less than 3 weeks to schedule a phone interview. The HR interviewed me over phone. There were few regular open questions, like introduce your research, when would you be available. Nothing technical, no difficult or unexpected questions. The interview was easy and the interviewee was friendly.
