    Difficult 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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amazon (Bengaluru (India)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied through a staffing agency for SDET I position, Telephonic interview was conducted. As I was not aware of Amazon process much I couldn't prepare well. I got call from SDET II on scheduled time.

    She started asking about my current project, role in my project and difficulties I faced in that project.Then she gave me string problem, I had to write a method which should return count of numbers.

    EX: Input "AABC32DE4P%@23Pu" output should be 32+4+23 = 59

    I explained an algorithm to solve this, She asked me to it, I coded in Java. I took little extra time to fine tune it.

    Then she asked me to write some test cases to test the above function, I gave around 10 test cases.

    After this round I got mail saying I got rejected. I felt lack of preparation and awareness about interview process reasons for rejection.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Chennai (India)) in April 2011.

    Interview

    It was pretty well organised. They gave a good overview of what is expected in the interview so that we can be prepared to take it. They concentrate more on problem solving and the data structures where though they don't expect you to immediately answer the questions they wanted to make a genuine try and valuate the approach.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online to many of their job postings, got a call from HR after a month. They had an hiring event , so after HR screening, they called me directly for in-person interview. Interviews started on time. I had 4 technical , 1 behavioral and 1 HR round, each for around 40-45 mins. All the interviewers were very helpful. At no point I felt uncomfortable. When I got stuck, they provided hints to help me arrive at answer. Overall a good experience in interview, they confirmed selection on same day and I got offer letter within a week.

    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.
