    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

    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.
