    I thought that the interview process was fair. There were a lot of different parts to the interview, such as multiple online simulations and interviews. It was all easy to understand though!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Amazon (Tracy, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview in December 2016. A second phone interview in Feb 2017. Finally on site interview in July 2017. Not organized at all. Was told to show up an hour earlier than scheduled but interviewers we not aware. Sr Ops Manager was not engaging at all. Wore safety vest the entire time even though sat in office for interview. There were 5 of us going into interview and the individual who was offered the position brought cell phone to interview and did not pay any attention to brief tour of fulfillment center. I may sound bitter because was not offer position but at least I pay attention to detail. Was told didn't have the right education and experience yet I hold an MBA and have over 20 years experience. Perhaps I was viewed as not trainable to be brain washed into the Amazon way however was able to quote all leadership principles and had examples. No worries will be back again as learned the dos and don'ts. Won't give up

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Amazon (Phoenix, AZ) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter called me 7/21 to inform of a position recently opened, had phone screen 7/25, onsite interview 7/28 and offered the position on 8/3. Plan for a very long day. Arrived at the FC one hour early as asked by the recruiter coordinator, did a tour of the facility. Make sure to bring notes, your own calculator, cell phone to keep track of time while waiting between interviews and own pens and pencils. Tour of the FC is boring and the person walks extremely fast so wear comfortable shoes. Once the tour is over you all sit in a room where they provide you with the math flow, very similar to the one in the practice packet. Hint; work backwards to solve. Next you meet with 2 Sr. Ops, HR and Ops who will be your peer. Sr. Ops asked me 5 questions while everyone else asked only 2. This is where it gets tricky, you need to make sure you impress the most Sr person the most as they are the bar raiser and ultimately make the final decision. When going over the math flow make sure they explain exactly what they are looking for as I am not sure they even know the answer, have them walk you through it as it can be confusing the way they explain it. Got a phone call from the recruiter 4 business days after the onsite interview offering me the position. This was my 2nd time interviewing as I was inclined the first time, but was unable to relocate and you are only inclined for hire for 6 months. I tried to tell the 2 others who were interviewing with me what to expect, but who knows if they believed me or took my advice. They are looking for a certain type of answer to their questions, either you have it or you don't!

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon (Cincinnati, OH) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I got called by a recruiter and I was not even looking. I think they found me on Linked-In. The whole process seemed very one sided as there was very little information given as to where the open positions were ahead of time. To learn a little more about it, I decided to work towards getting the phone interview by completing all their required items online. The phone interview and interviewer seemed to be in a rush and did not seem interested in listening. They seemed to be just "going through the motions" of the process. I felt my final questions were not answered., specifically around job locations. There also seemed to be a major arrogance about themselves. As a 20 plus year professional in the Continuous Improvement field, and with my credentials as a certified Black Belt, they ended up sending me a decline E-mail stating that I needed to work on building my experience. I found this to be laughable as I know my experience and skill sets in manufacturing, management, and retail far exceeded the Sr. Ops Leader who was interviewing me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Amazon (New Haven, CT) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was suprisingly disorganized. Very casual dress with the some interviewers in jeans. Pretty straightforward line of questioning except the math problem was not complex but very specific to their sort verbage and if you dont know the sort subsorts i.e. pickers, shippers, small package and multi package you dont understand that the pickers and shippers handle all packages. The actual math problem was no where near the example they gave as an example. Simple pwrs formula
