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)

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Amazon.com in December 2013.

Interview Details Interviewed through university recruitment program. There were 2 back to back 45 min. phone interviews with 10 min gap between them. Got a call exactly at the scheduled time and ended it exactly after 45 min are over.

Interview Question – Question were not the difficult ones, but the sub-questions asked on them were tricky.
1st interview question: It was scenario based coding question. Asked to code it in whatever language you want. The question was; you are getting number of orders daily, code a program which will minimize the time right from processing to packing and till warehouse shipment. It was something related to Pythagoras theorem. I coded it with some time left and then was asked to optimize it considering time and space complexity.

2nd Interview: There was not a single question. It was regarding hash tables, sorting and searching, picklists and their time n space complexities. Tried to answer them.

Interview Details Got an email from a recruiter about 5 months after applying online asking to schedule two 45 minute phone interviews.
