Interview

Phone screen the first round. The interviewer was a bit offish but talked nice. I was a bit nervous that I probably not performed very well. The interviewer's promise in processing next round made me a little bit surprise. Unfortunately nothing happened afterwards.

    Interview

    Had a phone screen with the hiring manager, then invited for on-site of 5 rounds with lunch. Many questions focused on Amazon's leadership principles as well as experience as a product manager, so anecdotal stories are helpful here.

    Interview

    I applied through a campus job listing. My resume was chosen for a 90-minute phone interview with two employees. I was not given their names ahead of time. The interview was very much a behavioral one. Although the employees were not full-time recruiters, each said that neither of their teams was hiring for summer 2019. I received an email message the next day with an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Amazon in December 2018.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with a person with very limited language skills. I am very comfortable with all cultures and accents after being in IT for a long time but this person wouldn’t be qualified to work at a fast food restaurant. He did not use STAR format, didn’t care about answers and didn’t have any follow up questions. They got back to me with rejection next day. Too bad - I spent a week prepping for this interview. Really Amazon???

They replied within a week after I submitted the assignment.
