Intern Interview

Intern

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com.

Interview Details After submitting my resume, I received an e-mail from their recruiter inviting me to an interview. They were doing interviews at my university on specific days, so I was asked to choose one of those days and specify a time slot that works for me.

At the interview, there were two Amazon engineers in separate rooms and I had to do a 30-minute one-on-one interview with each of them. They weren't notably friendly, but both were very polite and respectful. The interview consisted mostly of technical programming questions - there were probably only 2 or 3 general questions.

Interview Question – You have a file with 4 billion integers. Find an integer that doesn't exist in the file, given that you have very little available memory on your computer.   View Answers (5)

Software Development Engineer I Intern Interview

Software Development Engineer I Intern

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com in January 2014.

Interview Details The interview process went by rather quickly. I submitted an application and I heard back within a week about setting up two 45-minute phone interviews that would be technical in nature. During the first interview, I was asked to write a few small programs. For example, one of the programs I was asked to write was a simple java program that would take in a base integer and an exponent and would calculate the exponentiation.The interviewer was greatly interested in how and where I could improve my initial write-up of the program to handle edge cases and non-standard inputs.

Interview Question – I was really taken off guard by the depth of which my last interviewer went into with questions related to algorithms. The questions seemed to be less about design and best practices and more about theory. Needless to say I wasn't prepared and this part didn't go so well.   Answer Question
