    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com (Bangalore) in February 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Amazon.com (Bangalore) in February 2014.

    Interview

    There were two phone screens. The first screen was mostly data structures and a small design problem. Second was around design, and behavioral questions.

    The onsite had 6 rounds. The first is the manager round with job desc and one design question. The second was technical related to the project.The third was a design exercise . These were not too hard. The post lunch sessions were people management, project management and a senior manager round. The last person was the most impressive, all were skilled but not exceptional. Creativity seemed lacking in them. They work like dogs I guess.

     I got very tired at the end and passed a project related technical question I knew say I g I don't get into technical details,which was not true and , which proved to be the fatal mistake.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    interviewed at Amazon.com (Bangalore) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Was called by the recruiter and an online test scheduled. It was a difficult tree traversal and manipulation test. One test case set with values and the expected output was provided as a sample. I was not prepared enough with the APIs and so lost out. Overall it was a positive experience with the recruiter

    Interview

    They were pursuing me a lot bcoz their profiles were similar to me.

    I had worked a lot on Distributed Systems, E-COmmerce, Big Systems.

    The HR first called up & gave me all the details. I asked about what exactly do they look for in coding interviews. He told me they looked to see basic things like whether the candidate broke down the problem into simple parts & divided the complexity.

    In the telephonic round the interviewer asked about breadth first traversal.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com (Hyderābād) in December 2013.

    Interview

    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.
