Software Development Engineer/Software Development Engineer In Test Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

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

Interview Details I was scheduled for two back-to-back 45 minute long phone interviews. Both of the interviewers were quite pleasant, and they dove into technical problems immediately. Due to technical reasons (I really chose the wrong place to sit-- the call dropped several times and the internet stopped working), the first call was rescheduled for a week later. Both interviewers used an online collaborative coding website for the technical questions instead of asking me to write on paper. The technical questions were nothing too unexpected:
- Find the intersection of two arrays of integers (the elements that are in both)
- Given a set of integers, produce its power set (the set of all subsets of the original set)
- Reverse a linked list
- Given a string, what characters are in it?
Only one interviewer asked me about my resume ("tell me about a technical challenge on a project you've worked on").

Interview Details First interview went horrible. Interviewer was very unresponsive during entire phone call. Answered 2/3 questions. Third question regarding graph algorithm I was not able to solve and I believe that is what caused me to not get offer. Know your data structures and algorithms very well.

Software Development Engineer Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Amazon.com.

Interview Details Submitted resume to a recruiter at a networking event. After several weeks received an invitation to schedule for two phone interviews. After gave availability, received confirmed appointments a week later. Process was slow, but I assume they were very busy with scheduling for intern interviews. Interviews were technical, and was told to review OO Concepts, Data Structures, Complexities, etc.

Asked general questions then asked about tree traverals, solving a problem and if you can optimize your solution or come up with another solution. Interviewers were both nice and helpful.. provided hints/direction when necessary

Interview Question – tree traversal without recursion   Answer Question
