    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Amazon.com in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    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.   View Answer
