    Fire OS Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon Lab126 (Austin, TX (US)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    The recruiter begged me to interview. I am a embedded systems engineer not a OS software engineer. I finally agreed. I took a coding test online and passed. I was offered a trip to Austin for 3 days all expenses paid; airfare, hotel, car rental, and $500 expense card. I accepted the offer. Nearing the interview date the $500 card hadn't arrived and I didn't have a car rental. The started backtracking on the initial agreement. The interview was decent. I was told I was not a good fit. Which matches what I originally told the recruiter. I submitted my expenses and never got paid. I was out $160 and 3 working days. The most expensive interview I have ever been on. A waste of time.

    Interview Questions

    • The data modeling questions caught me off guard. I spend much of my time showcasing my hardware skills for embedded applications it's been awhile since I was handed a data modeling question.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon Lab126.

    Interview

    phone interview with hr, and then team member, after that, an onsite interview. The onsite interview has a lot of behavior questions, which the hr stressed in his email.

    Met two Indian guys during the onsite interview, both are barely decent person. One is a manager from mechanical design team, one is a member from that mechanical design team. The manager seems very sleepy, and he cannot keep his eyes open during the whole interview course. The other guy is the worst people I ever met. He tried hard to pretend he knew thermal, and asked a lot of foolish questions. And his attitude was very confrontational. After him, I interviewed the hr person, and expressed my concerns. But I guess that cannot help with anything.

    Interview Questions

    • some exmaples: Tell me about thermocouples? Then why, why, why? He said he would keep asking why if I said I know sth. He would ask why until I said I do not know.

      How do you attach thermocouples? I answered how I did that. and he replied "wrong". I said, well, I saw some other big companies did similarly in their guidelines. He replied, that's wrong. I asked if he can share whats the right to way to do. He said he can not. .... the whole process was very confrontational.   Answer Question

    Legal - Counsel Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Amazon Lab126.

    Interview

    Difficult, grueling and actually pathetic interview.
    Screening interview with talent coordinator then moved on to interview w Sha Hua. The most boring, patronizing, simplistic interview ever. When you start off by saying "walk me through your resume" you know the interview is going to be a one of THOSE interviews. However, I pressed on just to see if it would somehow get better. Nope. None of the hardcore legal questions I prepared for. Nothing about my experience. Just grilling me with technical questions about a specific Amazon product that (obviously) I had no experience with. Nothing about privacy, compliance or even UI spec decision-making and regulatory pitfalls. I knew the interviewer was sensing my frustration but that was ok. I had no plans to become part of a company that allows this kind of person/interviewer to be the face of the team.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Amazon Lab126 in September 2019.

    Interview

    One the HR contacted me said there's a matched position for me and the team leader would like to have a phone screen with me. We did the phone screen on the next day. The interview started with some introduction of my projects in my resume. He did not have interest on my project, this part was pasted very quickly. Then he asked me some technical questions about different kinds of sensors on a smart device including there working principles and applications. Finally some behavior questions were asked like have you made a decision that not good for now but benefits for the future.

    Interview Questions

    • What is TOF/ humidity/ voice/touch, etc, sensor. What's the working principle. If I want to auto adjust the screen light, what kind of sensors do you think can be used in this situation, why?   Answer Question
