    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview Details

    Very tough and a long process. There were 7 rounds in total. 5 rounds in a single day. The questions were tough but very perspective in nature. They were keen on understanding the thought process rather than exact answer per se.

    Interview Details

    On seeing an online I went to amazon office in Hyderabad, have to admit the selection process was quiet tough.

    4. Listening & speaking (Versant telephonic round)

    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.

    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.

    Intern Interview

    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.
