I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amazon Web Services
Coding assessment then a “phone interview” (which was actually a video call). My subsequent invitation to a second interview was later followed by Outlook’s automated “the sender would like to recall the message…” email, without explanation. Heard nothing for a week, when the recruiter then sent a generic rejection email with no mention of (let alone an explanation/apology for) the invite she tried to silently withdraw.
- A variety of networking / cloud architecture questions.

I was a contractor, so my experience may be slightly different. I had a brief call with a recruiter for a general overview. My second call took place with one of the managers which lasted about 30 minutes. They asked me about my experience and then some theoretical questions. My final interview was with a member of the team that I would be working with. They wanted to get to know my personality better and to see if I would mesh well with everybody. Everyone was super nice. Then entire process took about two weeks.
- What is a stressful situation you’ve had in the workplace and how did you handle it? What is a situation you handle badly and how would you change it?

The interviewer would ask a few questions in Mandarin, and I was to answer as best as I could. It was a basic interview that asked you about yourself, your past employment and why do you want to join Amazon. Unfortunately I overestimated my Mandarin abilities and did not do well.
