Hyderābād

I applied through another source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Amazon.com in June 2014.

Total 8 rounds:
1. Written(Basic grammar)

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 Question – The questions from the HR are based on your experience, as I was a fresher she asked me the following questions. The HR seems to be a very nice lady.
1. Why amazon?
2. Where do u see yourself after certain span of time?
3. Do you have any backlogs?
4. What do you know about customer service?
--- I didn't answer as I knew nothing. So to make me answer this she asked me the following.
5. What do you expect when you go to a restaurant?
--- As I answered this question she asked me to relate the answer with the 4th question.
and some customer scenarios.
6. How long will you stay with us?
