    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    Bring some snacks. It's a long day and they definitely do not treat you to lunch. I met with a total of 10 people over the course of the day. Six were primary interviewers and the others were shadowing to learn more about the interview process. Each of them brought a laptop and typed as you were speaking so don't get too distracted when they do that with you. They pride themselves on their abilities to multi task.

    Interview

    There were 5 back to back interviews. It was like a marathon and then I had a break in between for lunch. The people that interviewed me were from all different divisions of the company and the interviews lasted about 45 minutes on average. There were a lot of situational questions and technical questions.

    Receuiter scheduled call later for the program management position. When I was called as scheduled within a week surprisingly recruiter told me the original position has been cancelled and they are now hiring for a different position even without asking a single question or going through reference..

    Do you want to work for a company which does not know what position is being filled? What may happen even after you are hired??

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon (Hartford, CT) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I had 2 phone screening interviews, both interviews were generic behaviourial questions and they dug deeper into my resume. So if they ask you a question and you answer it, they would ask you why you did this or what did you learn out of it, what better way is there to deal with it.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    Know your leadership principles, as these will be the basis for the interview. Each interviewer focuses on a different one and uses STAR method questioning. Have numbers and be prepared for an all day grueling series of hour long interviews. Have an equal number of questions yourself. Avoid a heavy lunch, as it will slow you down for the second half.

    Interview Questions

    • What makes you believe that you are a "raise the bar" higher than at least half of the people currently here?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Be prepared with a full business case to justify any additional compensation requested.
