Software Developer Interview

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Raleigh, NC) in January 2016.

Interview

I had a phone interview. In which they have a shared doc, on which the interviewer asks us to code. Asked pretty simple coding questions, but the main focus was on the edge cases. The interviewer was friendly, and was trying to push me towards the expected answers.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Got an email from recruiter asking to setup interview dates and times. There were about 3 options. Had two 45 minute phone interviews. Asked mostly technical questions one asked to tell him a little bit about myself. But there really is not a lot of time for chit chat. They move on to the technical questions quickly. First interviewer was nice second acted like I was wasting his time through the whole interview. It made me even more nervous. He Seemed relieved when I couldn't answer his question.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon in December 2013.

    Interview

    I had 2 interview calls, they were not very hard. They were both phone interviews. If you get a Kindle interview you will have it easy. The AV team also need people. The supply chain side is what I got accepted into and the people there are very smart and work really hard. You will be in good hands.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Nothing for an internship. DO NOT TAKE THE CORP HOUSING. You can do much better finding an apartment on your own. Wash U's classes don't end when school is starting but you can use padmapper just before the internship to get a good place for cheap!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Went quickly after submitting a resume. The phone interview was the toughest of those I've had, covered the broadest range of questions instead of one problem in detail. Shared document for part of that. It went well and an onsite interview was scheduled very quickly afterward. It was the one dog-friendly office I visited, which would've been nice :)

    Interview Questions

    • NDA covers exact questions. Coding on a whiteboard, both design and algorithm coding questions.   Answer Question
