    Cloud Support Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Herndon, VA (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amazon (Herndon, VA (US)) in June 2022.

    Interview

    Deployment/Devops. I was expecting and prepared for leadership principles because recruiter told me that's what it was going to be about. He basically asked whatever was on the resume. It was difficult for me because I wasn't prepared technical that much. Plus at leas he could've asked tell me about yourself.

      Why would you use Docker? Over a virtual machine, and even an example?
      Let's say I have like okay, I have a Docker image in Docker Hub. And I want to, like use that image to start a Docker container on your local laptop or an EC two instance what command would we use?
      If I want to create an image Docker image. What command would I use?
      What's the difference between Docker build and Docker Compose?
      For example, let's say you have X number of Docker containers running on a machine right and maybe an instant easy to instance or server or whatever. How would you check those containers like what command would you use ?
      Let's say there was seven containers running on a machine out of those two stops for some reason. And someone asks you like hey, can we check what happened to those two containers? Like what can you do from here to see why those two containers stopped?

Any commands you can run to check where might be the issue lying with this ?

      What if you want to check connectivity on a certain website on a specific port, for example. You do Ping google.com You get a response right? It means that you can communicate with Google as in your laptop from where you ran that command is communicating with google.com Just fine.
