    Software Development Engineer I Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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).

    It is a expedited program. Amazon gave first interview on campus, it is a exam-like interview, with students gathered in a classroom and do the OA on our own laptops. It lasts about 3 hrs. There are 3 results of the first interview: get the offer, get the phone interview or get refused.

    Intern Interview

    Neutral Experience
    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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon in January 2017.

    Interview

    I had two online interviews, exactly like most everyone else. If you don't have a connection with an employee and you simply apply online, this is most likely how it will play out. The first online exam was less coding and more thought-provoking, and the second online exam was standard coding interview questions. I assumed they would want super-optimal, working code that was well documented, but I now know that they want you to hack out working code as quickly as possible. Those who did it quickly got offers right after, but I had to go through a third phone interview. We spent several minutes going through behavioral questions, but the majority of the time was spent on a couple coding questions. Everything was extremely straight forward and definitely was the best interviewing experience I've had. I got the offer a day or two after the phone interview!

    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.

    Software Development Engineer I Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    There were 3 rounds: first round was multiple choice reasoning test (~30mins) along with 7 debugging questions (21mins given). Second round was 2 programming questions. Third was phone interview over an online editor. The first test is autograded so you know pretty quickly if you've advanced. I didn't like how I asked to reschedule my interview and was ignored. I also did not like how Amazon doesn't consider culture fit, meaning they hire almost solely on technical ability rather than being a good team member/person to work with. I'm glad I'm going to be working at one of their subsidiaries with a more employee-friendly culture.
