    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    They asked for an online assessment and they never actually send the assessment. Because they did not reply back to my email for a week, I followed up with the HR representative to ask what was happening. However, they replied around a month and an half afterwards telling me that the internship position was now closed and told me to apply the year after.

    My mistake I applied late but got fortunate enough to get a call. They will churn your resume through and through. Make sure to be good on your algorithms. One generic and one actual programming question. It was a decent experience. However make sure to apply early.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon in April 2016.

    Interview

    I knew someone at the company who forwarded my information to get me the initial interview. Had two phone calls with HR but didn't advance past that process. The technical questions were fairly difficult. Behaviorals were not bad at all. The interviewer was very pleasant and helpful through the process. Good communication and good experience overall despite the result.

    Interview

    They asked me about my resume first. I talked about a few research projects I'd done with professors at UC Berkeley. This lasted about 20 min of the interview. They asked me two questions after. I couldn't remember the answer to the first one but it was something related to trees. The other question was find the distance between two nodes in a binary search tree
