    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Amazon Lab126 (Sunnyvale, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    After an initial call with recruiter and phone screen, the onsite was scheduled. Almost every interviewer was asking behavioral questions to check if you have their leadership principles. Leaving only 20-25 mins for a technical question in a 45 min round.

    SWE Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amazon Lab126.

    Interview

    There was an initial recruiter call, then a technical phone screen. I did well on the phone screen and was invited to onsite, but unfortunately the situation changed on my end and I had to withdraw from the interview process on my own. One plus about Amazon is that although the initial role that the recruiter pinged me with wasn't a great fit for me, they kept my info (and tech phone screen results) on file; when a position opened up that was a better fit, I was able to skip the technical phone screen this time around and go directly to onsite.

    Interview

    No one called up during first phone screen, and it was resheduled. The interviewer kept circling around one question without rephrasing his question or providing any hints before he declared that the interview was over within 10 minutes into the call.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Amazon Lab126 in March 2017.

    Interview

    Intitial one phone interview. Phone call is a screening process to check your QA knowledge and coding experience. They will ask test cases for a scenario and ask for a small script to write. Feedback was in after couple of days. I was then scheduled for an on-site interview. There were total of 5 rounds starting first with Hiring manager and SDE manager (behavioral, leadership principles). Second round was to come up with test cases, strategy for a distributed system scenario. Third round, was again coming up with test cases but this time it was with SDEII. Fourth and Fifth were apparently coding with SDET and one of them was a bar raiser.

    Interview Questions

    • Phone screen was more specific to test cases and a script to print the months in a text file.
      On-site round was aggressive with 5 rounds back-to-back without any break. Sorry wont be able to share questions since signed a NDA.   Answer Question

    Video Architect Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Amazon Lab126 (Sunnyvale, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Process was straightforward, well organized. Phone screen followed by on site interview. On site started with a talk with the recruiter who did a nice job promoting the company followed by 5 or 6 individual interviews that were relaxed and cordials.

    Interview Questions

    • I was surprised at how narrow the interviews were. May be it was because the position was not very senior but I was expecting a much wider set of technical subjects to be discussed for an architect position. Except for the personality questions the probing was very tactical in nature looking at the existing knowledge. There were very few questions pertaining to strategy, HW/SW integration, very few open-ended questions, etc.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon Lab126 (Austin, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I spoke with a college recruiter and was asked to draw a block diagram of one of my projects and explain how it works. I was encouraged to apply for the internship and was contacted in 3 weeks for an in person interview. The interview took about an hour, 30 minutes with one person and 30 minutes with another. The first 30 minute interview was mostly technical. The second 30 minute interview was more casual and behavioral. Both were conducted by engineers at amazon lab126. Some technical questions were tricky but overall average interview difficulty.

    Interview Questions

    • What major problems did you run into during a project and how did you deal with them?
      Do you know the amazon leadership principles? (you should read up on them)
      Draw a graph of how impedance of a capacitor/ inductor responds to frequencies from low to high.   Answer Question
