    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted my cv and was quite quickly asked to have an interview. It was a video interview via Biba(Amazon's version of Skype) and lasted 90 minutes. It was split into 3 sections with the first being focused on soft skills - leadership qualities, teamwork, curiosity and passion for tech; the next two sections were on programming questions - data structures and object orientated design.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    The interviews weren't hard but you have to be well prepared to answer to the questions. Be ready to talk about your last professional experiences, why did you apply for this job.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Provo, UT
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Provo, UT) in November 2014.

    Interview

    After a first round phone interview, which lasted half an hour I was emailed a project. I was given a set amount of time in which to complete the project. The project was very open ended where certain assumptions had to be made, which you had to be prepared to give reasons why you made those assumptions. After the allotted time I turned in the project and the following day I had two separate forty five minute interviews. The first was a hard core evaluation of my project, and the second was an overview of my project followed by typical interview questions.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Amazon (London, England (UK)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    After an online numerical test I had 3 interviews, the first round was one phone interview, followed by another 2 phone interviews back to back. The process was great, the interviewers were really friendly members of the team (not HR recruiters) and asked a lot of STAR questions based on their leadership principles, so it's important to think of examples where you've shown each of their leadership principles through your own work. Each interview was a similar format, overall it took about 3 weeks from first interview to an offer.
