    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Amazon (San Diego, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The 1st round was 45 min. and went through background and technical questions. The second round was three 45 min technical interviews that just involved technical questions. I was not a big fan of how much they cared about syntax in the technical questions.

    Interview

    I applied online. First round is a coding interview where I was asked to code several normal technical puzzles. Also, Amazon require you to have a web camera for some reason. I guess they just want to make sure it is you who is writing the code. After the first round, Amazon would ask you to go to Seattle if you pass through the first round.
