    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon.com in June 2015.

    Interview

    I had two in person interviews back-to-back. The first one was with an engineer; he just asked me to talk to him about a project I was working on and the associated challenges, likes, and dislikes. Right after that we jumped into a coding question which I cannot say specifically due to an NDA agreement. Honestly, my solution was suboptimal however, I talked through various solutions and their advantages with him (which showed my understanding of the tradeoffs between space and time complexity). I also coded it on the whiteboard very cleanly, fast and without errors. The second interview was with a manager who asked me many behavioural questions and one simple class design question. This interview went really well. We had a great chat and I had great answers to the questions I was asked. 2 weeks later I got an email with the offer. I just want people to know that it is fine if you don't think of the most optimal solution especially for a problem whose optimal solution is very hard to code on the spot. As long as you show you are capable of engineering analysis and can code cleanly and fast you should be fine.

    Interview

    The first round was a one hour phone interview. They promised to inform me about my success within few days but after all it took over two weeks for them to contact me again. Interview itself was very average and quite easy I would say.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Two on campus interviews that were on the same day. Each was one on one with an engineer from some team at Amazon. The dress code was very casual and the engineers I spoke with were very friendly and easy to talk to. Each asked one question first that was technical and I solved it on a whiteboard and then we spoke generally about the company and my own background.

    • Two algorithm questions that also involved data structures. Really generic Cracking the Coding Interview type stuff.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview

    First half an hour of the interview was about my projects and research. In the last 15 minutes or so, I was asked to code. Interviewer was very friendly but sounded busy. Once he was convinced that I knew what I was talking about, he was eager to finish.

    Application

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

    Interview

    My interview was held on my university's campus. The process was basically two back-to-back 45 minute interviews. Both interviews had a behavioral portion on the first five minutes. The rest of was technical. The first interview dealt more with providing an algorithm to solve a problem, and analyzing the runtime complexity of the algorithm. The second interview was more focused on object oriented and design pattern questions. The interview was a overall a positive experience as my interviewers tried to provide a comfortable setting and the questions were not particularly out of the ordinary.

    Interview Questions

    • I would like to respect the NDA so I will not disclose the interview questions. I will say that if you plan on interviewing with Amazon, know your algorithms, data structures and their complexity.   Answer Question
