    Software Development Engineer I Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon (Cambridge, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    They called for an assessment test, saying that the options in programming languages for the coding test are Java, C, C++ and Python. I flew in to Cambridge, all the way from my place to take the test, only to find that Python was not an option. I was OK with this and had continued to code, when the recruiter/host announced that those who prefer Python will have a separate hiring process later on, and had to leave.

    Quite obviously, there were some who preferred Python for coding tests including me and we left, wasting about half a day, a certain amount unreimbursed cost of travel, as well as having missed classes and/or other important engagements for that day.

    We never received any intimation later on.

    I hope the recruiters learn to value the time and money of candidates and improve upon managing the process properly. Its a shame that such a big company has such a shoddy hiring process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Amazon (Cambridge, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Had a group coding interview with amazon. 3hrs total, including debugging questions, logic questions and coding questions. Can only use java, c or cpp for the coding part of the interview. I did not finish the interview and left, since I do not use any of the programming languages. However, the questions were very easy (managed to do the debugging part in java).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Austin, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    On-campus assessment that combined the first 2 online assessments, then a phone interview that involved general questions about data structures and algorithms, some basic "soft" questions about projects, and a coding question. Fairly easy overall, but I got an email a day after interviewing informing me that I wasn't selected, which didn't surprise me too much- it was my first technical phone interview and I was very nervous and stumbled a lot.

    Interview Questions

    • Not going to give specific questions. Just study your basic data structure and algorithms.   1 Answer

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon in January 2017.

    Interview

    Very straight forward. Applied through employee referral and got a short test sent to me within a few weeks. The first test was a quick logic test with both word problems as well as visual pictures. After passing that I got a 3 question programming test. I passed all the test cases for the first 2 problems and had more that 50% of the test cases passing on the last problem. Welp, two days later and I was informed that I didn't make it through.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    Applied, was sent a link to a coding challenge to debug code. Got a phone interview that lasted 45minutes. Pretty similar to other phone interviews (time complexities). Starts with one question and then they alter it a bit and you change your code accordingly. Couple weeks later got an email with the results.
