    Interview Details

    Got an email from a recruiter about 5 months after applying online asking to schedule two 45 minute phone interviews. They were right after each other and both of the interviewers were really nice. The recruiter was REALLY bad at getting back to me though so I couldn't reschedule my interviews in time.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter after handing in resume at a career fair. Invited straight to on site interview. Had to prepare a case on a M&A scenario, or inventory management. 4 rounds of 30 minute 1 on 1 interviews, two standard behavior, one "bad cop", and one bar raiser. Case assumptions will get challenged, but relatively straight forward

    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.

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