    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    Long but professional, multi-day, phone then small groups hour after hour for 4 hours then a video call to Seattle, then next day a phone screen, answering similar questions with new examples for so long in one day was challenging to not repeat examples due to nerves and not wanting to take time to check notes but notes were allowed

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon (Las Vegas, NV) in April 2017.

    Interview

    30 min telephone interview with (1) Math question and about 4 Behavioral questions. Worst interviewer I have ever had. Very unprofessional with a "cocky" attitude. While this company maybe on the up with its "ecommerce' bravado, I am glad I did not get a second interview. This place is nothing more than a glorified warehouse. Amazon might be a good place for a new college grad but, if you are Mid Career this is not the place for you. My interviewer clearly could care less about the interview, was not prepared to conduct an interview and could not answer any of my questions clearly or "concise" as they advertise when they set you up for an interview. Waste of time talking to a 12 year old in an interview

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral questions and (1) Math problem. Very simple questions and math problem. Nothing related to the position and of minimal value to the position I was interviewing for. Very unprofessional interview structure   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I shouldn't have been in the process if they knew upfront that they couldn't meet my salary requirements that I clearly communicated multiple times. It was a complete waste of my time, waste of their money and waste of energy that frustrated me because as a potential employee they didn't take into consideration me.

    Reasons for Declining

    Their idea of compensation isn't in line with the industry. Their CEO needs to revamp his idea on how to compensate his current employees and possible future employees.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon in August 2015.

    Interview

    HR scheduled phone interview, then missed it. I emailed her back to ask whether she wanted to reschedule and still consider me, she replied after two days and rescheduled it. Then she missed the interview again. It is really not professional, this HR is wasting my time. I think she changed her mind after sending out the first email or something happened. I am surprised that this kind of thing can happen in Amazon.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon in April 2015.

    Interview

    Standard interview process. Not too difficult and nothing special from what I could tell.

    The process was basic with an initial phone screen, followed by a few more phone interviews, then an in person interview. They utilize a standard bar raiser interview system.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter about a week after applying online and set up a phone interview for the following week. Interview was fairly standard... asked me to walk through resume, described the role in more detail, asked basic interview questions.

    Be sure to discuss how your skills and background fit into their leadership principles. The interviewer specifically said, "the fact that you already landed an interview means we think you're smart and can do the job. I'm more interested in whether your leadership style fits with us." He also mentioned that for the Manager level and above they look for "Bar Raisers" meaning that every new hire needs to raise the bar for that role across the organization. They are looking for people who can come in on day 1 and perform better than 50% of the people already doing that job. It's a solid measurement tool for an organization that's growing at such a rapid pace, but it also means that you may take a lower title than where you are now based on how you rank.
