    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Amazon.com in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    On seeing an online I went to amazon office in Hyderabad, have to admit the selection process was quiet tough.
    Process:
    Total 8 rounds:
    1. Written(Basic grammar)
    2. Personal Intro
    3. Listening & Typing (Versant)
    4. Listening & speaking (Versant telephonic round)
    5. Written (e-mail, aptitude, English, customer service test cases)
    6. HR Round
    The first 5 rounds took place on the first day and as they said they called me the next day to come to their office and give the interview the day after, after going there I got to know that there is a HR and an operations round and as it is getting late only HR round took place for 30- 45 minutes instead of both.

    Interview Questions

      3. Do you have any backlogs?
      4. What do you know about customer service?

      and some customer scenarios.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at Amazon.com in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through a staffing agency for SDET I position, Telephonic interview was conducted. As I was not aware of Amazon process much I couldn't prepare well. I got call from SDET II on scheduled time.

    She started asking about my current project, role in my project and difficulties I faced in that project.Then she gave me string problem, I had to write a method which should return count of numbers.

    EX: Input "AABC32DE4P%@23Pu" output should be 32+4+23 = 59

    I explained an algorithm to solve this, She asked me to it, I coded in Java. I took little extra time to fine tune it.

    Then she asked me to write some test cases to test the above function, I gave around 10 test cases.

    After this round I got mail saying I got rejected. I felt lack of preparation and awareness about interview process reasons for rejection.

    Customer Service Associate (Non Voice) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Amazon.com in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The most funny and Time-Wasting Interview process I have ever faced in my life time. I have applied for non-voice customer service associate position. First round was HR round - cleared, Second round was Grammer test - cleared, Third round was Versant Written - cleared and then the most funny final round - I really did not understand why they have asked unrelated questions for 30 min. and rejected saying the reason - speaking skills are not up to the mark. I know my speaking skills are not up to the mark so I applied for Non-Voice. They have screened my written skills that are actually required for the job and I have cleared all those rounds and in the final round they have screened me for my speaking skills and rejected me -TOO FUNNY. If speaking skills are so important for NON-VOICE, they can simply screen the speaking skills in the first round itself and filter. But no one can say or do anything because it is one of the top MNCs.
