    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    Mostly typical behavioral questions asked. People were v pleasant, v polite. They want to see how you react in different situations and where the Amazon principles can be applied.
    Otherwise v smooth and relayed information at all stages pretty regularly.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Amazon in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied 6 months ago and my status is still under review. I applied to 5 other Recruiting Coordinator job posting everytime there's a new post and it is still all under review. That is the SLOWEST Requisition I have ever encountered. Do they ever close out the requisition? Is there a coordinator that is in charge of this or is the recruiter supposed do this process, but keeps setting it aside? Hire me--and I'll make sure to disposition and regret all the candidates who did not make the cut. I will be the best recruiting coordinator you will ever have.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Amazon in August 2016.

    Interview

    Very long process. I came to secure a first phone interview from a recommendation from a friend of a friend. Then she had me talk to her supervisor, who then set me up with a coordinator to set up the first official interview. I had to track down results, after they told me it would only take a couple days to hear back either way. It felt like I was getting the run around because I spoke to 3 different people before I finally got an answer that I wasn't moving forward in the process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Frustrating. I went through 3 phone interviews (2 with recruiters, 1 with the hiring manager). I had positive responses, and was invited on campus for an in-person interview. The questions were behavioral, following the STAR method, and focusing heavily around Amazons leadership principles. I had really great rapport with 3 of the 5 panel members I met with (including the manager who I would be working under), all stating that I would be a great fit, and that they could see how I could contribute in a positive way. I met with two gentlemen who I did not have a great conversation with. One seemed like he was trying to hard to be overpowering, and definitely showed distaste for my answers in an unprofessional manner. After all was said, they called the next day, and said that I had a lack of experience for the position highlighting characteristics I went over in my conversation with the two gentlemen I met with. Frustrating response considering they could have decided that in one of my three phone interviews, or by reviewing my resume prior to bringing me in and giving me false-hope that I would be a great fit for the company. Overall, make sure that you are "on" with all four/five panel members, as it seemed my fate with Amazon was ended by only one of the conversations I had.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    6 hour long process in one day. Super long. 45 minute long interviews with 5 different stages with one hour break before the final interviewer. My second interview had two people in it, but every other stage was just one person. They were really intrigued by my weaknesses as a worker and how I resolved my problems and weaknesses and how those experiences impacted me. They were really nice though and had different interview styles. Some talked about themselves more and some jumped straight into questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon in January 2016.

    Interview

    Standard phone interview. You need to review Amazon's leadership principles and think of examples beforehand. Lots of "Can you tell me a time when...?". The interview was a bit more than half an hour.
