    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Amazon (Allahabad (India)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    There were three rounds. First round consisted of 20 MCQs and 2 coding questions. One question was on simple binary search and the other involved recursion. The second round was a pen-paper round, where two question were given. The first question was to convert a BST into a sorted doubly linked-list in place. The other was to perform run length encoding on a given string. The third round was a technical interview round. The interviewer asked few questions based on sorting and hashing. Also, he asked me to implement a stack with two additional operations: printing the middle node of the stack and deleting the middle node. Both operations had to be done in O(1) time. Then, there was a question on BFS. Complete C++ code had to be written for all problems.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process began with an on-campus interview. This was pretty straight forward. Consisting of basic data structure, time complexity, and scalability resolution questions.
    Following that was a phone screening. This was done with an online IDE that was live feed in conjunction with a phone call. The code must be compilable but the interviewer will walk through each problem. Questions are welcomed. Just keep in mind the bigger picture of where the solution you're implemeting may be used and the implications of instantiating this solution elsewhere.

    Software Development Engineer I Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rochester, NY

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Amazon (Rochester, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and passed the coding challenge, and was contacted for an interview. Delayed by two weeks due to extremely poor organization on their part. Finally got a call from a guy in a random department I wasn't necessarily applying for, and I was told they just have to do interviews for half a day and just go at a pool of potential hires.

    They guy seemed super uninterested and distracted, and would ask me to re-explain everything I was already explaining while answering questions. I'm pretty sure he was doing his own thing on the other end and just coming back to me when I finished my question.

    Overall I was super annoyed with dealing with Amazon. They lacked respect and organiation and waste quite a bit of my time. Still haven't heard back 2 weeks later even though they told me they'd contact me back in a few days.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked some higher level data structure stuff likes trees and complexities for various operations.   Answer Question
