    Software Development Engineer I Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA (US)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    2 online assessments + 45 min phone interview. It took 2 months before I received the first online assessment, but afterwards everything was fast and smooth. Emailed the third party that sent the OA1 when I had issues and they were quick to respond. Wait times: OA1->OA2 (2 days), OA2->Phone interview (3 days), Phone interview->Offer (a week).

    Software Development Engineer I Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, MA (US)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon (Cambridge, MA (US)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    They called for an assessment test, saying that the options in programming languages for the coding test are Java, C, C++ and Python. I flew in to Cambridge, all the way from my place to take the test, only to find that Python was not an option. I was OK with this and had continued to code, when the recruiter/host announced that those who prefer Python will have a separate hiring process later on, and had to leave.

    Quite obviously, there were some who preferred Python for coding tests including me and we left, wasting about half a day, a certain amount unreimbursed cost of travel, as well as having missed classes and/or other important engagements for that day.

    We never received any intimation later on.

    I hope the recruiters learn to value the time and money of candidates and improve upon managing the process properly. Its a shame that such a big company has such a shoddy hiring process.
