    It was fun. The interviewer was very professional. He first introduced himself and then he conducted the interview process. He asked three technical questions, and I was able to answer them all. We had a very nice conversation about life.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Applied online. You're given two timed leetcode type questions, both ranging from easy to hard level (good luck!). Then you go on site, multiple rounds of leetcode questions and situational questions based on Amazon's "leadership principals." This is such a poor way to determine a candidates performance in a company. It only selects candidates that are good at studying for an exam.

    Ultimately I declined, because I don't care how much they pay when you lose 1/4 of your weekends to being on-call.
