Associate Interview

Associate

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Amazon.com in December 2012.

Interview Details First round is a combination of a written aptitude test and communication round. The aptitude test is a basic level test which consists of basic logical reasoning and language questions. Then comes the difficult part, the second round consists of two manager level interview rounds. One interview is to test the personality of the candidate and the other is analytic.

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

Software Development Engineer II Interview

Software Development Engineer II

Interviewed at Amazon.com

Interview Details 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.

Interview Question – Asked me to design a Potato Chips Factory by OOAD means.   Answer Question
