    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.

    Interview

    Solved both the codes error free. Phone wasn't clear, so I asked interviewer to type every question on the collabedit. Don't know what went wrong. I thought I did well. I didn't speak much as the phone wasn't clear. Maybe that did some harm. Speak as much as you can, don't make any code typos. Practice before on collabedit to get used to UI.
