    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online to Amazon on January 22, 2016. I got a response two weeks later to do an online assessment. It was a timed and webcam recorded session with seven easy debugging questions. About 4-5 days after I completed the assessment, I received an email to schedule a phone interview. Amazon got back to me less than a week later with a scheduled time and collabedit link.

    The phone interview was a lot less stressful than I was anticipating. The interviewer was very kind, spoke clearly, and gave excellent feedback while I was talking through the problem. I was given the opportunity to ask questions in the last few minutes of the interview and told that they would get back to me soon.

    Interview Questions

    • Two problems. Second one was a more complicated twist of the first one. Review data structures, especially HashTables/HashMaps, and Big-O analysis. My interviewer wanted the most efficient solution, so it's necessary to understand the complexity of your algorithm. Cracking the Coding Interview was very helpful in my preparation.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Amazon in March 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Got an email the next day inviting me to take an online assessment (OA). Although I responded immediately, it took them ~2 weeks to send the the OA. The OA should be very easy for programmers. Got an invitation for a final round phone interview ~2 weeks after submitted the OA. They sent me offer letter 10 days after interview, which was the day I had an offer deadline from another company. I emailed them many times reminding them of my deadline, but they did not respond once.
