    Got referral from my friend, reached back by a recruiter in about two weeks and scheduled two (or three? I don't remember) back-to-back phone interviews one week later. Received the offer in three weeks. I could choose which team I would like to join and they provided me three different options.

Both interviews consisted of the interviewer introducing themselves, then coding question, and finally 5 minutes to ask questions. 2 weeks after the interview I was contacted and offered the internship.

    Financial Analyst Intern Interview

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter after handing in resume at a career fair. Invited straight to on site interview. Had to prepare a case on a M&A scenario, or inventory management. 4 rounds of 30 minute 1 on 1 interviews, two standard behavior, one "bad cop", and one bar raiser. Case assumptions will get challenged, but relatively straight forward

    Interview Details

    Three step interview process. Went through all three interview on campus. Very laid back and casual. The interviews did not really give a good idea of what a summer with Amazon would look like, so be sure to have done your research before applying. There are two case questions to answer, but if you know about little's law you'll be fine.

    • Two case questions that involved math and were fairly easy   Answer Question

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The entire process was very enjoyable for me. Before the interview, I was informed on the topics they would ask so I could better prepare myself for it. I had back-to-back interviews with 45 minutes each. The interview didn't delve too much into my past experience and just went straight to the technical questions. I answered 2 questions for each interview. The questions were about data structures and algorithms, if you know the Cracking book pretty well then it should be no problem. The interviewers were nice and guided me with the right directions to answer the questions. I was given an offer a week later and was provided with very detailed information about the internship. Overall it was a very positive interviewing experience for me.

    Interview Questions
    • Very expected questions. For every question, you are expected to explain your approach, step through conceptually, and then write the code, step through the code, and clean up the code. Although questions are not the most difficult, you need to be very accurate and precise with your thought process and code.   Answer Question

    2 45mins phone interviews. First write the codes, and then read the code to the person. The questions are regular algorithms and coding skills. There are also some basic knowledges, such as data structure. Then I waited for about 2 weeks to get their response.

    Interview Details

    Very fast-paced, the process all together took about a week or two. Since I lived far from any of the offices, the whole process was conducted on the phone and online. I had a total of 3 interviews over the phone, first with a member of HR, then 2 with area managers. Everyone was very nice, and it was an extremely enjoyable experience where I learned a lot. I am beyond excited to start my internship.

    Interview Questions
    • There was an online math problem about placing employees in various jobs based on hourly rates of picking, packing, and shipping. Very difficult at first, but made me really apply myself and I learned a lot.   Answer Question
