Interview

The interviewer straight up asked to solve coding questions and didn't give any time for introductions or discussing about what I'd done. He was typing something on the laptop the whole time and was very slow in responding to questions, he was almost oblivious to the fact that I was sitting in front of him and trying to tell him something. He chucked aside any alternate solutions I gave to him and wanted me to come up with the exact algorithm he wanted.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Amazon.com (Mumbai) in September 2012.

    Interview

    On-campus interviews for the post of intern at Amazon India.
    Started with a combined technical/aptitude online test. Followed by a paper-coding round where the selected students were supposed to code two algorithms on paper.
    Selected students were interviewed by the recruiters. Some of the recruiters were quite unprofessional and themselves lacked knowledge regarding some basic algorithm questions. I personally know some students who suffered because they submitted an optimal solution and suffered because the recruiter failed to understand it. That's what happens in paper-coding.

    Interview Questions

    • Zig-zag traversal in a BST. I know it's a standard question but I wasn't aware of it and couldn't come up with a good enough answer in the interview round.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Amazon.com (Luxembourg (Luxembourg)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Everything was happening very quickly. I sent my CV and motivation letter and I was contacted back in two hours to arrange a phone interview. First one was with the HR girl, she seemed robotic on the phone, asked some basic questions: tell me about yourself, why amazon, what languages do you speak, etc. Next interview was with the manager. She shortly told about herself and then I had to talk a lot about myself. There were three situational questions where you have to tell a situation and elaborate on what you did using STAR method.
    Later that day I got an invitation to an assessment day to Luxembourg. They covered the expenses. There were three interviews with different managers and an Excel test. All questions were the same about situations in the past, and Excel - all kinds of formulas.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself, your previous experiences in internships, your studies.
      How do you evaluate your Excel skills from 1 to 10.
      When was the last time you used Excel?
      Why do you want to work in Amazon?
      What languages do you speak?
      When are you scheduled to graduate?
      Would you be ok to move to Luxembourg?
      What Amazon leadership values can you relate to?
      What was your biggest achievement?
      Tell me about a situation when you went above and beyond the call of duty for the customer.
      Tell me about the time when you took an initiative that was not your responsibility.
      Tell me about the time when you persuaded the team to keep going instead of settling with the initial plan.
