Resume Shortlist

Experience

I had an employee referral for Amazon. It definitely helps the shortlisting process.

Test

Experience

After the resume shortlist, they sent a coding challenge which can be solved in the language of your choice. It consisted of two technical questions, which were fairly simple. One of them was 'Most Common Word' from Leetcode.
Followed by that were around 100 non-technical personality questions (multiple choice). Amazon places its Principles highly and these questions should be answered seriously. They twist a question and ask it multiple times to check for consistency. There are no correct answers and no perfect candidate. So do not worry about being wrong.

Overall Experience

Most of the questions are intentionally ambiguous. Ask clarifying questions to understand the question, before jumping to the solution.
Also, do not forget to focus on the principles. For every principle, think of a similar situation you have faced in your life. Be ready to answer that in the STAR format. Stay calm and be confident.

Logical Reasoning Questions - Multiple Choice | Data Structures - Coding Questions

Experience

There were 20 logical reasoning questions - some of them were general questions testing math skills, others tested knowledge of core computer science concepts. The coding questions were both moderately difficult and took quite some time to solve.

For the coding questions, I got one correct, and one only halfway through, so it did not pass for all test cases.
So for the second one, I added some comments explaining what more logic should be added and what is the missing piece because of which test cases may fail.

Technical Interview

Interview Experience

This round involved 2-3 questions and there was no hurry about time, the interviewer was patient. First thing is to ask questions about the question, clarify any doubts before starting to write any code. After getting clarity on the questions, I was silently thinking for 2-3 min for each question, how to approach it and how to solve. Then I started working out on paper and simultaneously explaining to the interviewer about the approach.

Technical Interview

Interview Experience

This round went on for very long, about an hour or so. It took 5 min to first understand the question, what all I have to figure out etc. Then I thought for 3-4 min and presented my understanding. There was lot of back and forth, the interviewer was giving feedback on my approach, and I was iterating my solution.
Finally we arrived at a satisfactory solution which consisted of three parts (the interviewer was pointing out flaws, pointing out edge cases etc and checking how I handle such cases, such situations).
Then I was asked to write the code for each of these three parts of the solution. With that this round concluded.
