    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Munich, Bayern (Germany)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Munich, Bayern (Germany)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I had 4 interviews in total and applied online. The interviews all happened in a row, which was a bit tiring. Very competence based questions (eg. tell me about a time you received critics). I also had to solve a case study. The process in general was very fast and recruiter was very responsive. Though you get the feeling once you're hired they care about you anymore.

    Software Development Engineer I Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raurkela (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Amazon (Raurkela (India)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview questions started from Easy and ended with Difficult questions. The interviewer expected me to be honest in that if I had already done the asked question, then I should report to him. Initially, the interviewer was friendly but later that person became a bit irritated because he was hungry and had been interviewing since morning. So any mistakes committed or time taken, he was getting more irritated. The interview lasted for about 35-40 mintues.

    Interview Questions

    • 3. A question based on linked lists, which I don't exactly remember. But it was related to detecting the presence of a cycle in the linked list. I was able to do it easily though.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Austin, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process (at least the portion I made it through) was conducted purely online. I received an easy online logic/coding assessment followed by a more lengthy, difficult assessment. I never got the opportunity to directly communicate with anyone in charge of the recruitment process. I was also never given feedback as to why I wasn't considered for the next round of the interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • General logic/debugging questions. Write a method that determines whether two rectangles overlap given their top-right and bottom-left coordinates.   1 Answer
