    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Amazon.com in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied using their electronic system and few weeks later I was contacted by a recruiter. We set a phone interview couple of weeks later. First was a technical interview and it was quite difficult to understand the accent of the Engineer. The second, with a different engineer, was an interview more focused in theory questions.

    Operations Leadership Intern Interview

    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Iaşi (Romania)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was called by an HR person to come and take a technical test. After a week or so, they told me they were interested and they wanted me to go through some in-house interviews, two technical and one with the HR. The HR interview was you're regular interview with lots of question about situations you may find yourself at work. Regarding the technical ones, I had one were the subject was centered around POO concepts (design a game or so with various design patterns) and another one based on algorithmics. This last one was the most difficult and entertaining one(Example question: How do you model a dice with each face having a different chance of pointing up after one roll? )

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't find any question very difficult. When they asked me something that wasn't in my area of expertise I just told them this.   Answer Question

    Resume and Portfolio Review:
    Applicants were asked to submit their resume and portfolio. It took about a week to get the phone interview invitation.

    Phone Interview:
    I was interviewed by a UX team leader. It started with some ice-breaker questions and behavioral questions. Then, he asked me several questions about my previous projects and internship experience. We discussed a little bit about how Amazon (or say, his UX team) conducts user research. At the end of the interview, he asked me to rate my familiarity with several UX-related software (e.g. Axure, Morae, Microsoft Office, etc.).

    Interview Questions
    • The interview questions were reasonable. However, I think it is important to ask some good follow-up questions.   Answer Question

    I applied online - interviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview Details

    Very typical interview, 45 minutes, a few behavioral questions and a technical question that required some thinking. Not many different types of questions, but the ones they asked followed up on each other, requiring very in-depth explanations on past experiences. I would suggest knowing your experiences very well before using one of them as a response to a question.
