Technical Program Manager Interview

Technical Program Manager
Bangalore

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com in February 2014.

Interview Details The Interview Experience with Amazon.com Bangalore was very Bad. The Interviewer was very unprofessional. He started the conversation saying "Lets finish this quickly". Hmmm Come on, how can interview finish in couple of minutes.? His questions were more to show You down, he was not satisfied with even one Answer.The HR never bothered to inform me whether I am selected or not? I eve dropped them an email, she did not respond. When we invest so much time/effort in interview process, dont we have the right to know whether we are selected or not? I really had high regards for Amazon, but this process really put me down. Good I am not joining this co.

Risk Analyst Interview

Risk Analyst
Hyderābād

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com in December 2013.

Interview Details We had a campus Drive. At first i was tensed as it was my first interview but my inner soul was telling confidently i would get it.

There were 5 rounds in total
-PIR
-Critical Assesment
-Versant
-HR
-ops

PIR round was like walking over water, the hr asks a question and you need to respond on it very confidently. They test your communication skills, your behavior and your expressiveness. There will be a major cut down in the number in this round, only 1/3 were able to make through it.

The next one was Critical assessment, it was very CRITICAL, it will test your patience, your way of thinking, your personality is evaluated and your understandability and problem solving ability will be tested. Trust me, more than 80% will be eliminated in this round. It's an online round by the way.

Versant, it is a testing tool for non english based countries. It will test your speech ( stress and Intonation), and mainly it will test if you are able to follow american accent or not.

Hr round is simple, you just need to be confident and just stick to the point.

OPS will be the final and the most toughest round in the whole interview. The questions could be regarding your personal profile, some technical questions and few logical questions also, it depends on the manager who is taking your interview. It lasts for 30 minutes.

Interview Question – Suppose you have a room with three lights inside it and there are three switches arranged randomly outside the room. The room is completely closed and you can't see anything through it's walls. You are allowed to go into the room only one. So how can you tell whether which switch is connected to which bulb.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – In case of campus there's no negotiation as the package was fixed

Software Development Engineer Interview

Software Development Engineer
Bangalore

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Amazon.com in September 2013.

Interview Details This is my experience during the campus selection drive of Amazon.com. The process started with a brief presentation by the recruitment team. The process had 5 stages. The first test was online, having 20 objective questions from various topics and 2 questions to code. One required a complete code, the other required coding a method for the specified purpose. This was followed by four technical interviews. Each interviewer constantly typed on their laptop while interviewing us, probably making a note about us. We had to think of a solution for the given problem and optimize the same. This was a "white board" test, which required us to write actual code for the solution. The questions were pretty tough, but were manageable. The interviewers were very friendly and were very open about their work culture.

Interview Question – The most difficult questions were from data structure implementation point of view. They required a strong understanding of the problem statement to decide the correct data structure to implement. They were very stern about the required efficiency of the solution. Getting a solution wasn't enough, we are expected to give the best solution we can possibly think of!   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Since this was a campus hiring drive, there wasn't a scope for negotiation. The salary split-up was presented to us in the start of the process
