    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    Very easy. Just two coding challenges, a phone call, and got an offer. Pretty easy overall, the first coding challenge was really debugging and SAT style questions, so it could have been more informative.

    Interview

    Two online assessments: first one was debugging and logic questions second one were 2 coding questions. If you're selected, then there is just a 45 minutes to one hour phone screen interview as the final round. Past that is either the offer or rejection email.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    I was given an IQ test followed by 7 easy debugging problems. They were all easy, most of them are just changing one or adding brackets here and there. Than I got a coding assessment and then final phone interview. The phone interview went really well the engineer even said "Oh that's good, I like that" to one of my marginal optimizations. I thought I got it but I received my rejection about 2-3 weeks later.

    The process is very time consuming, the recruiters were very difficult to reach and unprofessional, I am disappointed with Amazon.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Amazon in November 2017.

    Interview

    Received an invitation to an initial online assessment consisting of some trivial code debugging problems and a logic test. Had two online coding questions following that that were also fairly easy. They were similar in difficulty to 'easy/medium' level questions on HackerRank. Went on to a final virtual interview with an engineer. The interview took place via Amazon Chime and was unpleasant. My interviewer had a thick accent and was in a public area with a lot of background noise for half the interview making it very difficult to understand what he was asking. He then asked me about whether or not I knew much about a certain topic and I told him I had no knowledge of it. He then asked me to build a system to support said topic. I managed to stumble my way through what I believed was an appropriate solution but he had to give me a lot of guidance. Overall the process felt impersonal and an unfair assessment of my ability.

    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.
