    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Amazon (Rochester, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I was approached through the campus recruitment team for an online assessment test. The test was of 1.5 hours and consisted of 2 sections. The first section was a debugging test to check if you're able to understand someone else's code and debug the logical errors in it. The second section was to check the analytic ability. I am waiting for their reply

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amazon (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    No interest in background, resume, or past projects. Both interviewers seemed disinterested and standoffish. Jumped right into the coding questions, which were typical questions on data structures, searching, and sorting. The first interviewer seemed unsatisfied by my initial answers but didn't say why, which threw me off. The second interviewer was a bit more verbose and seemed better prepared for the interview overall. It wasn't quite an amazing experience, but it wasn't altogether terrible either.

    Interview

    I applied online and had not heard back for two months or so, but out of the blue I got an email asking me to interview. I had an online coding assessment that required me to debug several snippets of Java code. After completing this successfully, it was followed by a 45-minute phone interview that used Collabedit. The interviewer asked me about myself but most of the phone interview was focused on answering some data structure questions.

    Interview

    It was enlightening. They asked coding specific questions, and asked some questions about projects I'd been involved with. They seemed kind of disorganized since they forgot to give me an NDA to sign.
