    Area Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Las Vegas, NV
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon (Las Vegas, NV) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in April of 2016 and was invited to do an online assessment. The assessment took about 2 hours. It tested you on how you would handle certain situations and how well you analyze data(I would recommend looking at their leadership principles prior, otherwise its just knowing how to properly read data). Right after I finished, I got an email 30 minutes later stating that I did not get the position. Fast forward to March 2017, I received an email with a survey on it. They asked me if I was still interested in a position with Amazon. They said if you are, please fill-out the survey to let us know what positions you are still interested in. I filled that out and a month later I received another email stating that I was invited to interview. They were extremely good at filling you in on everything and keeping in touch, even though its been a lengthy process.

    Once I knew I had an interview, they continued sending email updates and would send us any other prescreening things necessary prior to interview. It was very helpful and made me respect their HR team.

    The interview I had was on Amazon Chime. I really enjoyed the experience and everyone was very supportive. The first interviewer had a very nice vibe and made me feel very comfortable. The second one was also very nice, but he definitely was a tad bit more intimidating. The questions were behavioral, so its extremely important to prepare.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral Questions. Tell me about a time... etc. Its really important to have a time of failure, hard employee, challenging situation, etc. Use STAR method.   Answer Question

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    No Offer
    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

    Area Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Amazon (Reno, NV) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Everything online with really good follow up from recruiter. Then travel to one site, multiple people interviewing. Set questions with very limited probing and/or follow up. It seems that they cared more about personality, professional background and age (prefer younger applicants) that can be molded and developed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Amazon (Las Vegas, NV) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Horrible, very unprofessional. I applied since last October, and took the assessment. They emailed me on February to schedule a day to go in for a drug test and background check info, I went in with a big group. They had a lot of groups go in at different times, but the lady was so unprofessional. I go through the whole hiring process: went in for the drug test, filled out my 1-9 forms online AND went to the appointment at another location to give my information, completed the online orientation, and scheduled my in person orientation date. 2 days before, they decided to cancel it due to "unforeseen circumstances." Seriously? I checked back on the website and saw that the position had already been filled. Maybe they should make sure they're only bringing in people they need rather than a bunch of people and leave the rest hanging after they went through the WHOLE process without telling them the position was already filled.

    Fulfillment Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon (Las Vegas, NV) in November 2016.

    Interview

    August 2016 - Applied Online
    Nov. 14, 2016 - Received email with contingent offer & schedule Hiring Event
    Nov. 19, 2016 - Attended the Hiring Event (Brief overview of the company, dress code, etc. Completed drug test (mouth swab) and picked shift preferences
    Nov. 28, 2016 - Completed I-9 form and Eligibility to Work
    Today is December 23, 2016 and I still haven't been contacted for further actions. The lady at the Hiring Event told us that if our background check and drug test comes back cleared, then we basically got the job. I don't do drugs nor do I have a criminal history so the reason I haven't been contacted yet can't be because of that. According to my Amazon Portal, my status is still "Awaiting Screening Results". I have tried contacting HR but can't find a phone number and only got vague responses via email. The most info that I've gotten so far is that the facility that processes the drug test is backed up due to the busy holiday season. I will update this post once I hear back from Amazon.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Las Vegas, NV) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to Amazon on October 26. A couple of days later we got asked to come in for a new hire orientation and was basically hired on the spot. They showed us a power point that gave us an insight on the job and asked us for our availability. After that we were told to expect to wait for an email that would have us do a couple of more steps (tax info, pay info, etc). This entire process took a month and a half.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Reno, NV) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online providing basic information about myself, followed up by a questionnaire about 'common sense' scenarios-- they're trying to see how you'll respond to the work environment and different types of scenarios. After finishing up, I clicked send. Within minutes I received an email asking to finish my application, so I uploaded my resume. Immediately after uploading I received a job offer. I haven't been contacted since and it's been a week. I reached out to them and was told I'd be contacted by HR when they schedule a 'hiring event'. Stay Tuned!
