    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon in September 2017.

    Interview

    The in-person interview was about half a day and the questions included a mix of technical and behavioral questions.I have interviewed with multiple teams and they seem to make an offer based on the overall performance with all the teams

    Interview Questions

    • The questions would cover one or more of the data structures and algorithms. Basic coding knowledge combined with algorithms will be enough to clear the technical part of the interview.Last but not the least would be behavioral questions which you would try to relate them to your experiences in the past   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of three parts:

    1.) An initial assessment consisting of easier debugging questions and some logical questions.

    2.) A longer more involved coding assessment of 2-3 questions and a virtual behavioral assessment that goes through a typical work day at Amazon for an SDE.

    3.) On-site. They bring you in and have 3 separate technical interviews which even more involved coding problems usually with multiple follow up questions.

    About a week after the on-site you should get a response from HR with an offer or rejection.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The responses were very quick. If you pass a round, you will get the next round within a week. There are 3 rounds: behavioral/debugging, coding and then the interview in Seattle. The people that interview are generally very nice and will give hints if you need them. You should know basic algorithms and running times/space complexities. They care a lot about that.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    There were 2 online interviews before I was emailed regarding an onsite interview. The process itself seemed easy enough (too easy?) as we were interviewed for about 30-45 minutes, and then given a short information session/tour. We were told it'd take 5 business days for feedback, but in actuality, it took 8 (interviewed Wednesday, got rejected via phone the 2nd Monday afterwards.)
