    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I have interviewed for an AWS PM role in August - September in Seattle. Applied through a glassdoor job ad listing. Total of 5 rounds of interviews - inital phone screen, video call, 1 manager on-site, 1 team on-site and finally a manager 2 level up.

    Not easy, they definitely "nicely" roast you with relevant questions, but I guess that is expected. Lots of case questions and typical amazon principal questions.

    I used a interview prep guide I found on interviewjoy.com which was very helpful. If you want this job, you better prepare *a lot* by working on sample questions and practice answering them as if you are in an interview. Better prep also shows your recruiter how much you want the job.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    I got an email from an amazon recruiter about a position I had applied to. She had me answer some questions and send back to her. Then she said a scheduler would call me. Then nothing. I waited a few days and asked again. She said the team went with someone else. What the hell? Just wasted my time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online mid February for role, heard back two weeks later from recruiting coordinator via email with a request for a first round interview. Talked with the manager of the open position in an hour long phone call, heard back at the end I was moving to the second round of phone screens. Scheduled that two weeks out, conducted the second hour long screen. Didn't hear for a week, emailed the coordinator, she was on vacation and said I'd hear back to schedule an onsite interview. Had 6 rounds of interviews onsite. Very quick rounds 45 minutes long.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    First contact was quite friendly. By the time I spoke to the actual manager of the team the interview took a decidedly adversarial tone; did not sound like a person anyone would want to report to.
