    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    It was through on-campus recruiting. Applied through school's career website. There were two phone interviews followed by an onsite interview. Each phone interview lasted 45 minutes or so. For an on-site interview, there were 5 interviewers, all on the same day. After the interview, the decision was made farily quickly - 3-4 business days. I think the normal interview process (vs. campus recrutiing) would take longer, though. After an offer was extended, they inviteds us back to their campus to sell.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I had two sets of phone interviews. Each set of interviews had 2, 45-minute calls with mid-level managers. The questions consisted of mostly case questions, with some behavioral questions (mostly about times I have used data to solve a problem).

    After my first interview, it took them about 6 weeks to get back to me to schedule the next round of interviews. I followed up with my recruiter every two weeks to see if I had an update on my status.

    My advice on case question prep… worry more about understanding what frameworks you use to answer specific types of questions, as opposed to planning out for specific questions. Other people may have had a different experience, but I did not get any questions I planned for. I think they purposefully retire questions quickly, so people can’t prepare for them specifically.
