    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amazon (Irvine, CA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    The position was advertised as a software quality assurance position. It turns out that the Amazon developers test their own code and the QA people are responsible for test automation and tool building. This is how Google and Facebook operate also. The industry has found that if you hire more testers, then the quality of the code decreases because the developers do not test at all. Holding developers accountable for the quality of their code instead of testers is the key. Writing tests needs to happen before coding starts - ideally automated unit tests such as test-driven development.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions were about programming more appropriate for a developer. No questions about testing or quality assurance.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amazon (Irvine, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Very cordial and friendly, interviewers take the time to make sure that the candidate is comfortable and give them time to think their answers through especially in coding questions. The interview process was a quick phone call with the recruiter followed by a phone screen and if that goes well, you get called in for an in person interview.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Very heavy on coding questions, even for a position as a manual test engineer. I guess this is a common thing at Amazon, they expect a certain level of development experience for everyone. My interview was with three people, and only took 90 minutes.
