Software Development Engineer Interview

Software Development Engineer
Seattle, WA (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com in June 2014.

Interview Details The entire process was very enjoyable for me. Before the interview, I was informed on the topics they would ask so I could better prepare myself for it. I had back-to-back interviews with 45 minutes each. The interview didn't delve too much into my past experience and just went straight to the technical questions. I answered 2 questions for each interview. The questions were about data structures and algorithms, if you know the Cracking book pretty well then it should be no problem. The interviewers were nice and guided me with the right directions to answer the questions. I was given an offer a week later and was provided with very detailed information about the internship. Overall it was a very positive interviewing experience for me.

Interview Question – Very expected questions. For every question, you are expected to explain your approach, step through conceptually, and then write the code, step through the code, and clean up the code. Although questions are not the most difficult, you need to be very accurate and precise with your thought process and code.   Answer Question

Operations Leadership Intern Interview

Operations Leadership Intern

Interviewed at Amazon.com

Interview Details Three step interview process. Went through all three interview on campus. Very laid back and casual. The interviews did not really give a good idea of what a summer with Amazon would look like, so be sure to have done your research before applying. There are two case questions to answer, but if you know about little's law you'll be fine.

Interview Question – Two case questions that involved math and were fairly easy   Answer Question
