    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely efficient. The recruiter was super friendly and made us all feel comfortable. There was a coding test that was conducted in our University where people were shortlisted based on their resume. The coding test was not too difficult. Anybody with a basic understanding of data structures and algorithms will be able to crack it. Overall very satisfied.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Amazon in August 2017.

    Interview

    Amazon recruiters came to my college campus for a career fair, which is where I spoke to them first. I was invited to a phone interview a few days later. The interview was mostly behavioural with some basic questions about programming. The interview concluded with the recruiter saying they mostly hire juniors, and I was later rejected.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    30 "logic" questions then 1 week later was given one easy and one medium question in a 1 hour coding challenge then 1 week later phone interview. Standard question but since it was my first interview ever, and the fire alarm went off for 20 min and my connection quit for 10 min so not too great of an experience...although pretty funny in retrospect

    Interview Questions

    • Return the k smallest integers in an unsorted list. Assume complete size of list is greater than memory can hold (basically can't just sort list and return first k ints)   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    2 hour long online coding tests, 2 hour long calls.

    The first coding challenge consisted of rounds of about 70 questions similar to an IQ test, followed by 7 super short "find the bug, change 1 line" style questions. Super basic, don't be hindered if you don't understand the IQ test questions, they seem to be a super low level gauge of problem solving.

    The second coding challenge consisted of about 30 general personality questions, and 2 longer coding problems. About 20 minutes per problem to get a good solution. I had errors in mine and still got the phone screen.

    I received 1 phone interview, started with about 15 minutes of general personality and work experience questions, as well as basic data structures. Literally define data structures, differences between them, and implementations ( ex: which data structure would you use to implement depth-first search?). Maybe 1 graph question was included, but did not go much deeper than that.

    The basic questions were followed by 1 programming question, where you talk over the solution with the interviewer then write up the solution in a collaborative text editor. The last couple of minutes you ask the interviewer questions about the company.

    Interview Questions

    • Difference between depth-first and breadth-first search   Answer Question
    • Given a string in which only 1 character occurs an odd number of times, find that character.   1 Answer

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amazon in June 2017.

    Interview

    The process itself is a little impersonal, but it makes sense since Amazon is such a big company. I first received a coding exam which contained some debugging and logic questions. After passing that round I received a coding exam with two coding questions (must code in C/C++/Java) Brush up on your data structures before taking this one. Finally, I had a phone interview where am engineer asked me some behavioral questions before doing a technical problem.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    Applied online, didn't hear back for a while until I met a recruiter at a career fair who passed along my information. First screen was a coding challenge that had a mix of programming questions and logical questions. Then heard back in 1-2 weeks about setting up a phone interview, and I believe that round also went all right. Wasn't insanely hard, but wasn't super easy either, since I only got through one question during the 45 minute phone call.

    Interview Questions

    • Something about designing a data structure that would keep track of maximum values   Answer Question
