    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

    Contacted by recruiting team, very good conversation about job description and qualifications. I felt that expectations were realistic and that it was a good potential fit. The recruiter was very knowledgeable and helpful up until the actual interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer seemed to be unaware of the job they were holding the interview for. Lots of questions about irrelevant skills and job duties led me to believe there was a miscommunication about what job I was interviewing for.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Initial contact was from the HR in response to my application for a QAE position. The phone interview was scheduled for 1 hour. The HR sent a generic email about the interview process stating that the interview will be technical covering areas of data structures, algorithms, coding/design. The position I was interviewing for was QAE which does not require programming expertise- so make sure you follow up with HR about the specific position's requirements.

    The phone interview started 15 minutes late (and the interviewer never gave a reason nor apologized for the delay).
