Completed my interview last week, I had an initial phone screen of 45 minutes and a virtual onsite of 3 rounds which lasted 45 minutes each.
Sharing some of the questions that I’ve got in the screening and onsite interviews here.
Tell me an example of a time where you did a task that looked complex but was actually simple when you started doing it.
Tell me about a time when you simplified a huge task with the help of data.
Tell me about a time when you had to make a quick decision and what was its impact.
How did your MBA experience change your leadership style?
Tell me about a time when you led a team and the challenges you faced during it.
Tell me about a time you invented something or found a completely new way to do a certain thing to save time/money.
Tell me about a time when you went above and beyond even though it was not a direct responsibility.
Tell me about a time when you took a huge risk.
Tell me about the best constructive feedback that you received and how did you use it later.
The first question was a huge curveball for me personally as I haven’t seen that question listed anywhere else.
For anyone preparing, I would suggest understanding the job description very well and try to use stories that will display the qualities Amazon is looking for in the job description.
