    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    Submitted resume to a recruiter at a networking event. After several weeks received an invitation to schedule for two phone interviews. After gave availability, received confirmed appointments a week later. Process was slow, but I assume they were very busy with scheduling for intern interviews. Interviews were technical, and was told to review OO Concepts, Data Structures, Complexities, etc.

    Asked general questions then asked about tree traverals, solving a problem and if you can optimize your solution or come up with another solution. Interviewers were both nice and helpful.. provided hints/direction when necessary

    Interview

    First interview went horrible. Interviewer was very unresponsive during entire phone call. Answered 2/3 questions. Third question regarding graph algorithm I was not able to solve and I believe that is what caused me to not get offer. Know your data structures and algorithms very well.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume through the website about 2 months before they contacted me. They sent me back an email at the end of February regarding a phone interview. The phone interview was two calls back-to-back.

    The first call was not really technical. The interviewer asked about projects and my background, and he was very nice. We did one coding exercise over CollabEdit. He was very interested in how I thought about the problem, so make sure to articulate what you're thinking about when you are given a problem and how you're thinking about solving it. The question was how to implement the division function without using the division operator.

    The second call was a technical interview. The question was find the element in an array that appears an odd number of times. All elements are guaranteed to appear an even number of times, except one, which will appear an odd number of times. He asked a lot about the space and time complexity of the solutions that you provide, so make sure you understand those concepts and can apply them to your solution.

    I did not receive an offer, but they replied back within a week.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews - basic interview questions were asked. Asked complexities of all algorithms. Collab-edit was used to demonstrate coding skills. Decision is usually communicated to the interviewee by 1-2 weeks. Offer was non-negotiable.
