    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Milan (Italy)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was invited for the online Assessment. Once you get the invitation email you have 5 days to complete it otherwise your application is considered withdrawn. I completed the online assessment and found it very challenging with many quantitative questions, but still I felt good about it. A few days later I received a phone call from an Interviewer (2nd step of the recruiting process) who asked me mostly personal fit questions. A week or so later I received an email saying my profile was not in line with the one they were looking for

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    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

The managers were pretty engaged and would get on the floor and help if you asked. They pay was pretty good for the work, and their scan rate expectations were reasonable, at about 140 packages an hour. I never found myself below that threshold.” – Full Review
