Behavioral based questions were easy to prepare for. Amazon prefers the STAR (situation, task, action, result) method to answer. Would suggestion preparing for the math flow question. I was asked the following: You have 30 associates who all work an 8 hour day, 5 days a week. 2 need to be in indirect (non-volume producing) roles. Your direct (production) rate is 150 units per hour, but you have two 15-minute breaks during the day. How many units can your department produce in a 40 hour week?

(30 - 2) associates = 28 28 associates/hour * (8 - 0.5) hours/day * 5 days/week * 150 units = 157,500 units/week However, this assumes 100% utilization all the time and this is probably unrealistic. I would then apply a reduction to efficiency to account for unexpected delays. 157,500 units/week * 90% = 141,750 units/week ... final answer.

You have 30 Associates who all work an 8 hour day, 5 days a week. 2 need to be in Indirect (non-volume producing) roles. Your Direct (Production) rate is 150 units per hour, but you have two 15-minute breaks during the day. How many units can your department produce in a 40 hour week? 30 Associates - 2 Indirect Associates = 28 Direct Workers 28 Associates/hour * (8 - 0.5) hours/day * 5 days/week * 150 units = 157,500 units/week 30-2=28 Associates 8hrs * 5 days = 40 per day Subtract two 15min. breaks per day = 30 minutes of breaks per day, or 0.5hrs. 0.5hrs*5days = 2.5hrs 2.5hrs – 40hrs= 37.5hrs 37.5hrs*150uph=5,625units (per Associate that week) 5,625*28 Direct Associates = 157,500 units that department can produce

If you were to able to build a culture of excellence and have an engaged team by being a servant leader would you stick to the results given? I would give my team a stretch goal and support along the way. Now do the math with a team that is doing the task 25 percent percent more efficiently... boom

Um, last time I did high school algebra, 28*(8-0.5)*5*150*0.9 = 141,750. Am I missing something? How did someone get 787,500?

Woops, sorry, this is why I'd make a terrible high school math teacher. The error in the person who posted 787,500 is that they're multiplying for 5 days a week twice. The correct answer is 141,750

I was to take this question literally with all the information that I have been given then I could look at it another way I have 30 associates (colleagues) meaning on the same level as myself this makes the total 31 including me. Take away 2 non producers leave 29 It then mentions the line "Your direct production rate is 150 per hour but you have two 15 minute breaks" it doesnt mention each member of the department has the same breaks just me. So 28 x 8 x 5 x 150 = 168000 Then include me 1 x 7.5 x 5 x 150 = 5625 168000 + 5625 = 173625 They

(30 - 2) associates = 28 28 associates/hour * (8 - 0.5) hours/day * 5 days/week * 150 units/hour = 787,500 units/week Please note that the production rate is 150 units per hour and not per day. And with 90% Uptime, we will get 708,750 units/week.
