    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon Lab126.

    Interview

    Saw the position in the website, connected with recruiter in LinkedIn, had an initial call with her about the fit, got the confirmation about the hiring manager liking my profile and she schedules for a one hour technical round with HM. Three days after I got the confirmation that they would like to move ahead with final round.

    Being in the COVID situation all the companies were doing VCs and happened same for this role too. Had 5 rounds with one bar raiser round and everything went as planned and no distractions.

    Went in deep discussion about writing assessment with 2 of 5 interviewers. And got the call from recruiter after 1.5 days about they wanted to offer me the role.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon Lab126 (Sunnyvale, CA) in May 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by Amazon recruiter about a week later. She arranged a technical phone interview and told me that the interview consists of technical, coding and behavioral portions. So, I spent a lot of time on coding and 14 famous Amazon principles for behavior interview. However, on interview day, the hiring manager only asked me technical questions. I think I did a good job answering his questions considering my job experience was not directly related to the job. However, after 2 days, I got a rejection email.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon Lab126 (Austin, TX) in February 2020.

    Interview

    The recruiter begged me to interview. I am a embedded systems engineer not a OS software engineer. I finally agreed. I took a coding test online and passed. I was offered a trip to Austin for 3 days all expenses paid; airfare, hotel, car rental, and $500 expense card. I accepted the offer. Nearing the interview date the $500 card hadn't arrived and I didn't have a car rental. The started backtracking on the initial agreement. The interview was decent. I was told I was not a good fit. Which matches what I originally told the recruiter. I submitted my expenses and never got paid. I was out $160 and 3 working days. The most expensive interview I have ever been on. A waste of time.

    Interview Questions

    • The data modeling questions caught me off guard. I spend much of my time showcasing my hardware skills for embedded applications it's been awhile since I was handed a data modeling question.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon Lab126.

    Interview

    phone interview with hr, and then team member, after that, an onsite interview. The onsite interview has a lot of behavior questions, which the hr stressed in his email.

    Met two Indian guys during the onsite interview, both are barely decent person. One is a manager from mechanical design team, one is a member from that mechanical design team. The manager seems very sleepy, and he cannot keep his eyes open during the whole interview course. The other guy is the worst people I ever met. He tried hard to pretend he knew thermal, and asked a lot of foolish questions. And his attitude was very confrontational. After him, I interviewed the hr person, and expressed my concerns. But I guess that cannot help with anything.
