    Interview

    Submitted application. Asked a large number of yes no questions with little room for an explanation. Impossible to provide the full picture. Never heard back. Doubt my resume was even looked at. More than qualified for the position. Seemed to treat like a number.

    The initial call with a recruiter about current work experience and to set up a 1-hour phone call with technical team. The Interview asked about the current experience and given a coding problem.

    Sr. Technical Writer Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    A hiring manager contacted me in early February to ask for my availability for the next 1-2 weeks to do a first-round interview over the phone. I emailed my availability and waited for scheduling...nothing. I followed-up twice, the first time to tell him about schedule changes, and once more the following week to ask if he was still interested interviewing me.

    He responded to my second email and said that they are still interested, but that scheduling can take longer than they'd like because the hiring team is so busy. I replied to tell him I understood and threw in my latest availability. And again...nothing. Followed-up again-again a week later...nothing.

    Sure, it's Amazon. I know they're busy, but so am I. They're definitely dropping the ball if this is how they handle potential employees.

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (New York, NY) in March 2020.

    Interview

    I had contacted a recruiter on LinkedIn. He first sent me a coding challenge, which consisted of 2 coding questions and I had to also explain my solution. The questions were Leetcode medium level.Five days before GHC I was informed that I had been selected for on-site interviews but due to COVID 19, all the rounds held online. There were 4 rounds each about 55 minutes. All 4 rounds were online using Amazon Chime. For the first 3 rounds, each round consisted on 1-2 technical questions and many behavioral questions. It's very important to go through the 14 Leadership Principles of Amazon for the behavioral questions. The coding questions were Leetcode medium. The 4th round was System Design, the question was little unusual for me. The interviewer helped me to come up with a good solution. As I was also very new to System Design, this round did not go that well for me. After a week I got a call that they are not moving forward with me. However, it was a very good interview experience.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Amazon in March 2020.

    Interview

    They contacted me for an interview for the Program Manager Intern position after 1.5 months of applying. The interview was done on Chime consists of two 45-min back to back interviews with different interviewers. Both of my interviewers are friendly; one asked more questions than the other. I heard back exactly a week after my interview. It said that I got the offer but my location was changed from Seattle to another state. Overall, the interview process was pretty standard just make sure to use their 14LP and STAR method when answering.
