    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Rather short and to the point. First they contacted me by phone and we chatted. Then they put me on a list to be called back. I got an appointment to come in for an interview. It appeared that they were very interested in me.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon (Birmingham, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Telephone interview. However the person interviewing gave very misleading responses around saying -well done, thats excellent -thats brilliant to my responses instead of staying neutral as that gave me false hope during the interview that I was saying the right things.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    it is a limbo, with no light at the end of the tunnel. most mismanaged interview process. take endless rounds of long interviews and then vanish in thin air. no value of the employees time and no respect for them either. everything is you skill of mugging up their 14 principals and fitting them with right examples. no other skill what so ever or experience is required and if you are from a pedigree college that also is not needed. one word PATHETIC
