Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
Declined Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Amazon (Washington, DC) in June 2020.

Interview

Several recruiters called me and asked if I am willing to relocate. There were no phone screening process.
One of them sent automated 90 min interview coding questions. followed by additional 30 minute questions.
There was a demo practice option but it was not very helpful.
I have applied to multiple positions, but unless you pass this 1st step, nothing goes through.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon (Austin, TX) in April 2020.

    Interview

    4.5 hour total session consisting of 4 rounds. One of the sessions was a disaster, the others were better. On the bad session, there were language difficulties with the interviewer. Most of it was intentionally vague coding challenges plus "behavioral" questions that sometimes felt like a criminal interrogation. Despite 20+ years of experience, no one asked about my past projects.

    This will likely be the last time I attempt to interview with them. It's not worth the extensive prep required, all to work at a Hunger Games-like environment. I have better things to do.

    Interview

    Appeared for one virtual interview as a part of the final interview process. I was asked 3 coding questions of medium level leetcode and 2 behavioral interview questions. The questions were of arrays and heap. It is important to communicate with your interviewer. I felt the interviewer was not able to communicate the behavioral questions and simply went ahead and pasted it on the coding link shared.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    I was reached out by recruiter who invited me to take online assessment. After long time spent for preparations and filling 2 hours online assessment I only received information that my application will not be further considered, without any feedback. I felt like I was just filtered out by some algorithm and all my time and effort was wasted without any possibility to explain or understand what went wrong. Terrible experience, I didn't expect that from such a big company, that they don't even have resources to provide simple feedback. I was told that I can apply again in next 6-12 months - definitely NO! These are no times where big brands matter anymore, only reviews and opinions on internet.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon in October 2019.

    Interview

    Four rounds of online interviews. First was easy bugfixes for code given to you. Next section was two questions, both similar to Leetcode easy. Third section was a longer interview with only one question similar to a Leetcode medium problem. Final round was a video interview with three engineers. First two went well but the engineers often did not explain much about the problem. Couldn't understand the last interviewer and was no help.
