    Entretien de Software Development Engineer

    Employé anonyme - Seattle, WA (États-Unis)
    Offre d'embauche acceptée
    Expérience positive
    Entretien dificile


    J'ai postulé via une autre source. Le processus a pris +4 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Amazon (Seattle, WA (États-Unis)) en mai 2013.


    Called out of the blue, asked if I'd be interested in interviewing. Still not entirely sure how they got my name. Had first phone interview the next week, asked no personal questions, all technical in nature. Total of 3 phone interviews and an in-person trip out to Seattle.

    Took about 4 months start to finish. The people in the in person interview were wonderful. Very smart, laid back, and understanding. Got lunch, small tour of campus, and learned what I'd be doing. Got the offer 2 business days after the in person interview.

    Sadly, I signed a NDA and I respect the terms of that. As such, I can't give you any specific questions, but I'll gladly give you the best advice I have.

    Phone Interviews :

    Phone interviews are sucky by nature. Coordinating a call from west to east coast alone is painful, add the fact that phones just take away the benefits of body language, and just make it harder to hear, and you've got a recipe for disaster. But fear not! Here are some helpful hints, some of which are obvious, some of which are not.

    1. Get ready ahead of time. I just mean, get to the area you'll be doing the interview beforehand. I'd recommend an hour or more, just to get your nerves ready. Breathe, get used to the surroundings, and get everything laid out ahead of time. Which brings me to...

    2. I know it's a "programming" interview, but for the love of all things good, have a pen and paper ready and at your disposal. Bring a backup pen. Much like a printer, the pen will fail at the worst possible time. You may also need a laptop, as I was asked to do "on the fly" programming. But close anything and everything distracting. Speaking of...

    3. Pick a spot where there are no distractions. You'll want your undivided attention on this interview. Don't have BookTweet or FaceSpace or MyGram or that crap open if you have a laptop. And I personally wouldn't pick a public space, you never know when an annoying parent will put their screaming child right beside you.

    4. Breathe. Just breathe. Take a moment, stretch, and remember you got this. If you have trouble hearing, don't be afraid to ask again. Don't be afraid to say you don't know. Do as for clarifications, and state assumptions up front. Always re-state the problem as you understand it.

    As for the content : For the love of God, know what a time complexity is, and how to determine it for any and all code you write. Know the time complexities of all sorts. Know all data structures, how to use them, and properties of each. (Insertion time, deletion, etc) Generally know what heck you're talking about. But don't talk too much. You don't want silence at any point really, but you certainly don't want to let the interviewer not get a word in. Know graph theory, tree theory, and all the fun stuff associated with more "complex" structures. Understand what your language does behind the scenes, as far as GC and compiling go. Know how your language use internal structures to manage the code/objects you write.

    As a recent grad, there wasn't much room for negotiation.

    Entretien de Community Engagement Manager

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme - Herndon, VA (États-Unis)
    Aucune offre d'embauche
    Expérience négative
    Difficulté moyenne


    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris +2 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Amazon (Herndon, VA (États-Unis)) en janvier 2018.


    Terribly inefficient process. A recruiter reached out about 1 month after I had applied online. The recruiter had clearly used a template, but forgot to change the update it with the correct job title I had applied for. The recruiter asked me to answer 4 essay questions - which I can only assume were her screening questions because she was too lazy to speak with me. It then took another 4 weeks for the recruiting scheduler to coordinate a phone interview with the hiring manager. The hiring manager was clearly under qualified and lacked relevant experience. The whole process was a waste of time for both the company and for me as an applicant. Basic information around compensation, team structure, and travel expectations could - and should - have been conveyed by the recruiter during the initial screening process. For a large company like Amazon Web Services, you would have expected better processes in place and competent hiring managers. Final round interview would have included a presentation of some sort.

    Phone screen done by a recruiter then an on-site interview with four leaders. During the on-site you will take a situational math question that is ratio based. After that you will do up to four individual interviews using Amazons leadership principles. The questions need to be answered using the STAR method.

    The best interview process was insanely fast and easy maybe because of pandemic crisis we are facing. None... direct hire after completing the knowledge assessment. After successful submission it takes several days before the background check to complete and verify I'd.

    Entretien de Senior Program Manager

    Employé anonyme - Seattle, WA (États-Unis)
    Offre d'embauche acceptée
    Expérience positive
    Entretien dificile


    J'ai postulé via un établissement de l'enseignement supérieur ou universitaire.. Le processus a pris +3 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Amazon (Seattle, WA (États-Unis)) en mars 2020.


    I will split this review into 2 sections pertaining to my preparation process and interview process.

    First, I prepared by reaching out to my OCM (Office of Career Management) part of my MBA program. They reached out to the alumni that worked in the specific job and connected me with them. This was essential to my process and helped me a lot as it helped me get an inside look of the interviewers thought process before the interview.
    I then prepared a document to save and answer any interview question that I could find from resources, such as Glass Door, pertaining to typical Amazon behavioral interview questions.
    I also watched interview related YouTube videos that helped me prepare. Since Amazon is such a large company and hires a lot of people, there are a lot of these videos available. There are a few YouTube channels dedicated to the Amazon hiring process and interview preparation.
    I then reviewed the leadership principles and familiarized myself with them. I paired behavioral questions with these principles, and related them to my experience via the STAR format.
    One thing I HIGHLY suggest is practicing your responses, making them fluid and natural as part of a normal conversation. Record yourself, practice in the mirror, etc. Also, do NOT simply write down your responses and read them to the interviewer. This will get you negative points, and possibly cause them to pass on you.

    Total time: 3 HR, 15 Min.
    4 interview, 45 min long, 15 min. break after 2nd interview.
    Amazon is moving towards online interview process. There are not doing as much on-campus interviews or flying candidates out to the location for in-person interviews.
    My Amazon interview was a total of FOUR interviews. Each of these interviews lasted for 45 minutes. Amazon will try to do all 4 of these interviews within 1 day.
    Be prepared to commit to the interview date, and be prepared for it to take the better half of the day.
    Each interviewer was punctual and direct. They gave a quick introduction of themselves, asked for a quick introduction of myself, and then quickly moved into behavioral type questioning.
    Preparing ahead of time is essential. I HIGHLY recommend the STAR format. Amazon is very results driven. Don't focus on non-essential information. Focus on actions and results.
    Each interviewer will ask you for more details and challenge you during the interview. Be prepared to be challenged and have those answers ready if possible.
    2 of the interviewers I had gave me hypothetical questions to get to know my thought process better and to learn what my managerial style is like.

    All in all, it was a great experience. If you make it to this round of interview, you will most likely do well. Amazon is selective in their candidates, and seek out very qualified individuals for positions like this. You will more than likely enjoy this interview. My preparation helped me a great deal. Do not take the preparation lightly.

    Finally, the questions that I included were part of my preparation and found online. They were also asked by the interviewer. Not all of the questions asked are included.

    I applied at the end of December 2019 for the Summer 2020 AWS internship. I heard back end of February 2020. They provided timeframes in which to schedule my virtual interview consisting of two parts: behavioral and technical. Once selected, they responded confirming my interview time with tips on how to prepare for the interview. The interview consisted of two 1:1 interviews back to back. Despite one interview considered "technical", it is not a traditional technical interview, there was no whiteboard or coding portion. Both interviews asked situational questions. All questions directly tied into Amazon's leadership principles; specifically, bias to action, learn and be curious, customer obsession. They have a quick response time after the interview. They provide response within a week.

    Entretien de Solutions Architect

    Employé anonyme - Boston, MA (États-Unis)
    Offre d'embauche acceptée
    Expérience positive
    Difficulté moyenne


    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris +2 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Amazon (Boston, MA (États-Unis)) en février 2020.


    It was a fair process, the first round was telephonic and then on-site. Right from my telephone round to accepting the offer the process was very organized and streamlined. The recruiter I was working with was amazing.

    1. Applied:12/23/2019.
    2. Recruiter Reached out:01/09/2020.
    3. Telephone Round: 02/04/2020.
    4. Response from Recruiter: 02/06/2020
    5. On-Site: 02/28/2020.
    6. Job Offer: 03/09/2020

    Telephone Round:
    The first step is the telephone round with Sr Solutions Architect where you will be tested in various areas. The interview break-down is 80% Technical and 20% Behavioural. The interviewer was very polite and humble. Your goal should be to make the interview as interactive as possible.

    Technical Section
    You will be tested in the following 4 areas
    1. System Design: You will be given a scenario and will be asked to design it.
    2. Software Engineering Principles: Understanding of REST APIs and OOP principles.
    3. Networking Concepts: Understanding of Sessions, Authentication, Caching, Encryption, security, HTTP vs HTTPS and working of OSI layers is extremely important.
    4. Scalability and Performance: Every design recommendation you make needs to perform and scale well. Research on HA and Scalable architectures.

    Make sure to answer all questions using the STAR method. The questions that were asked were no different than the ones that have been posted on Glassdoor. The key indicator of success is to give precise answers that will showcase what you have done i.e. never use "we" always narrate your answers using "I".

    Before your on-site interview, your recruiter will reach out to you to give you pointers. These were very helpful during my process. Make sure to take notes and ask questions to your recruiter about your on-site interview.

    The on-site loop will consist of 5 rounds. You will be given an option to take an hour for lunch or you can have lunch with an Amazonian (This is not part of the interview). I decided to meet up with a fellow Amazonian for lunch. Before we jump into interview rounds some basic tips. Amazon Leadership principles, you have to know them thoroughly.

    The hiring manager was very polite and greeted me well. This round was mostly talking about my past experience and how it relates to the current role. Be prepared to talk in-depth about your experience. Every question you answer will have follow up questions and this goes pretty deep. So make sure when you prepare you go deep to the root of the problem. Key emphasis will be on your initiatives and how did you drive towards a successful solution. You will be given some tricky situational questions and will be tested on your response. The questions were similar to what is posted on glassdoor. Be prepared with at least 2 examples for each question. This round also consisted of Behavioural questions which will start with "tell me a time when". A mistake that I made during my interview that you should avoid, DO NOT mention/say things that you can't elaborate.

    The second round was purely focussed on system designing. This will include whiteboarding, you will be given a problem statement and will be asked to come up with a design for it. Now the key to answering design questions is to not start scribbling on the whiteboard but to take a step back and think through the problem. I told my interviewer that I would like to draft my solution on a piece of paper first and then whiteboard it. The question will be vague, so it will be your responsibility to ask follow up questions. For this round, you will need to brush up on system designing concepts. I read a lot of blogs on Medium for this. I would also recommend opening an AWS account and designing a simple HA system.
    I can't share the exact questions but they can be anything related to Amazon Products.

    The third round was a mixture of Behavioural and System design. Again, I can't stress enough on practising whiteboarding. Technical questions can range from Website designing to understanding OSI layers. The interviewer tested me on different components of software architecture: Front End, Back End, Application Server, Web Server. For my interview, I had to showcase an understanding of Abstraction and Encapsulation on a system design question. Always remember to look out for hints. If you get stuck the interviewer will intervene and provide you hints.

    Lunch: I opted to have lunch with an Amazonian. This is not part of the interview loop but make sure to be professional and ask the right questions. I took this opportunity to ask more about Amazon culture, projects and expectations.

    4th & 5th
    Fourth round I think was the bar raiser round. This was purely behavioural. Fifth-round was mix was behavioural and System Design. Design questions were purely from my past experience. I was asked to design the architecture of a solution that I had developed.
