    Intern Finance Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Luxembourg (Luxembourg)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon (Luxembourg (Luxembourg)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews: First one with the HR and second one with an on-site manager.
    Then if they consider you as a relevant applicant, they invite you for to pass four more interviews in their offices, plus an excel test. They pay for all the travel expenses.

    Interview Questions

    • First HR interview:
       Tell me one of the twelve Amazon's principles and how do you relate to this principle? I said always give the best and reach for more.

      Describe me a situation where you had to deal with a difficult customer? I describes the situation and then said that customers are always more important than one's ego and when working with a customer you have to put your emotions aside and think about give a good image of the company.

      Another question she asked was 'What is your favorite Excel function? Why?'.
      Then she basically explained what the pay was, and how the rest of the interview process would go.

      Second interview was with a manager? She asked question such as: do you have the ability to multitask? How would you deal with multitasking? What did you do during your previous internship?

      Then they asked me to come on-site for the following interviews. They were four interviews, each one with a different manager, plus an Excel test. Didn't do well on the Excel test. Interviews questions were like: present yourself shortly, tell me what you did in your previous internship (I've mainly talked about the work I've done on excel). Didn't got the offer.   Answer Question

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon in June 2017.

    Interview

    Three rounds total. First was a set of puzzles and logic games, around 20 questions. This round also had a set of debugging questions but it was basic, like finding what the error in the code was and stuff. Second round were actual data structure questions, but pretty straightforward if you've learned CTCI. Final round was a phone interview and I think its up to chance here; my interviewer spent most of the time asking about my resume and projects and only left a little time for his actual coding question.
