I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com in March 2014.
Interview Details Got the interview from AWS team. 2 back-to-back 45 mins interview.
First interviewer(an indian engineer with terrible accent) asked me a classical Top K question, gave him a solution literally in a minute. However the solution needs a max-heap, commonly just use its api but this time he asked me to implement all, got quite unexpected here, it took me almost 30 mins to finish it. At last I asked question about openstack, unexpectedly he didn't know a thing about it.
Second round was about string anagrams, still gave him a solution very fast(hash table, O(n) time and O(1) space), it is the best solution. After this talked about my current project, I guess this is where I blew the intern opportunity cause I said it is totally boring :-/ .
Two interviewers were not nice, sometimes felt quite unpleasant. The HR really didn't respond any of my question and email, and I was told no offer a week later.
