    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (San Jose, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was a online test followed by a round of two interviews. The online test is really simple, with easy coding questions. My interview went really well, was really expecting a offer though. The process in completely unpredictable. In phone rounds I was asked questions about trees, algorithms, data structures, time complexity. It started with discussing my previous project work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    It was a one-on-one on-campus interview. They hosted an informal info-session the day before the actual interview. And it was a mix of both behavioral and situational. The interview was not particularly hard, but if you are an international student, please be sure that they will sponsor your work visa. For the position that i applied to, they didn't have the quota to sponsor.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview before. The whole process of the interview is good. But without self-introduction or asking anything on the resume, the interviewer start directly on the technical question. There are three simple questions, all of them could be found on glassdoor. Both iterative and recursive version about fibonacci. And the interviewer follows up this question, ask for a O(logn) solution. The other two question is pretty straight forward

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon in February 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and took a short online debugging assessment. Amazon wanted a single phone interview. Set up an appointment for a phone interview that was technical in nature. The interviewer talked very quietly and didn't seem to be very invested. I'd have to ask him multiple times if he was still on the phone.

    Completed the phone screen and felt confident. Received a rejection in a week and a half.
