    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview Details

    Amazon has many rounds of interviews and sometimes it's so rigorous that you may have to appear 6 rounds in one day. This becomes difficult when the employee is travelling from far off place in India. The worst part is that all the interviewers ask the same question - around their leadership model and values

    Interview Questions
    • None... actually it becomes so repeatetive that one get's drained in explaning the demonstration part of leadership model over and over again. The funniest part, people who interview are senior positions but have no clarity on the role profiles are the ones who ask the most and have an influence over the appointment of the position   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter emails you with details on what to read up on and be prepared for for the interview. I had 2 in person interviews (45 minutes back to back). Each was a different technical question. Straight forward, a couple behavioural, past project questions from both interviewers. The interviewers try their best to leave the candidate with a good feeling (company policy), so it's hard to get an idea of where you stand or how you're doing at times.

    They contacted me for a Hiring event. I had to use a web based tool to solve two questions. The first question was reconstruct a tree according a two dimension array and the second was an ODD problem. I had 60 minutes to solve both questions. The test wasn't very complex but you have to code the most efficients solutions.

    Interview scheduler was great but phone screener was unbelievably arrogant and patronizing. I left with the impression that micro management was rampant and that this would be a dreadful place to work.

    Interview Questions
    • Some irrelevant question, effectively about how to micromanage and blame employees.   Answer Question
