    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview

    I had a first round interview that I got after talking to a recruiter. It was a 30 minute interview. They asked the usual questions. The hardest question they asked me was "Name a time you were crunched for time to complete an assignment and how you overcame the situation". The second round interview is on-site.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview

    There were two hour long phone screens, followed by eight in person interviews at the offices in Seattle. The questions were all over the board, but most were behavioral questions asking for examples of how you have responded in certain situations before, and drilling in to your examples as far as possible.

    Interview Questions

    • I can't recall the exact wording, but they want to know how you have used data to make decisions in the past. Once you give them an example, be prepared to go very far in depth with it. They will ask details that might even seem irrelevant, and the questioning process on that one example can last upto twenty minutes.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Amazon.com in October 2014.

    Interview

    First I applied on their website. Then, I was given an online assessment to take. A few days after the online assessment I was told that I was invited to the final round interview in Seattle. They put me up in a hotel Thursday through Saturday. I was not a fan of the actual interview process. We had only group interviews. There was an individual assessment, and then there were two group case studies. As someone who has no finance/ consulting experience, I feel as though the interview ultimately set me up to fail, so I was not happy with Amazon about that at all. I definitely don't expect to receive an offer.

    • The individual assessment on the day of the interview was hard. I felt as though there really was not much time.   Answer Question
