Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in March 2014.

Interview

The interview process was pretty hard. It started with three phone screens over three months followed by an onsite interview that lasted all day. I literally walked out of my last interview with a headache due to all the questions asked.

Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    The hiring was done at my school through an MBA program. We had 2 in person interviews each for 30 minutes as the screen, followed by 2 more final rounds of interview. After the first round, we waited for an email from HR to let us know if we passed. Questions were around product features - some mini-case problems and some situation questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Everyone was very courteous, punctual, and easy to talk with at Amazon. There is a bit of a mystique about the interview process. I went through two phone screens but did not proceed beyond that, and one really doesn't ever find out why.

    Interview Questions

    • I cannot remember any questions verbatim, but conventional wisdom I heard beforehand was true. Provide detailed answers. They want to get beyond the generalities of a resume, so the more concrete you can be, the better   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    All but one of the team member was unprepared and a complete moron. The attitude he brought to the table was enough to put me off the entire job itself. Amazon needs to look carefully at who they select as interviewers and their company comes off as arrogant.

    Interview Questions

    • Not many but they really need to keep their wrong and egoistical attitude in check   Answer Question
