    Negative Experience
    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

    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.
