    phone interview, including few questions about your work history, the rest are mostly technical questions. The first phone interview questions are kind easy. Second round questions are Data Structure, Algorithm related. Questions are not difficult, normally ask you how to optimize the algorithm. People are nice.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Amazon.com in March 2014.

    I applied during the Spring Employment Opportunities Conference of our university, and got the on-campus interview. It was 2 consecutive interviews, 45 minutes for each. 1-2 questions for each interview, depend on how fast you can finish the first problem. Write the code on white board.

    non-technical questions:
    how did you solve it when you have conflicts with teammates?
    Tell about one of the open-ended projects that you have done.

    Interview Questions
    • given an integer, output all the prime factors of that integer, ex:
      input: 6, output: 2,3
      input 25, output: 5, 5

      input: 1,2,1,3,3,4

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Amazon.com in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through their website, and was contacted a few weeks after asking for an interview time. There were two interviews of about 45 minutes each, with engineers from different teams. They called at the exact time scheduled and were extremely polite.

    The interviews themselves consisted of the following:
    1) A few minutes talking about myself, and some of the items on my resume.
    2) Questions about how I would go about solving problems relating to data structures and algorithms.
    - One of the problems was "How would you implement a stack within a queue?"
    3) A programming problem where they would have a pre-written question and they would watch as I solved it.

    Unfortunately, I was unprepared for the interview, and thus was not able to answer the questions quickly and efficiently. They really want to know that you know the efficiency of the things you write.
