Interview Experience: Time Frame: Feb-April 2022
How did I Apply: Had received a mail from amazon regarding SDE-1 hiring and applied through the link in the mail which directed me to the amazon jobs portal.
OA Round 1 (22 Feb 2022): HackerRank. 2 Questions of medium difficulty level to be solved in 60 minutes. I had to write code as well as explain the approach.
After around 3 weeks I received a mail from HR asking for availability for an interview in next week.
Round 2 (23rd March 2022, duration- 1hr 15min, platform- Amazon Chime): This interview was taken by Sde-2 having 2.5 years of exp. He started by asking me to introduce myself and also introduced himself, then he pasted a question on the live code link text editor and we jumped on the coding questions:
I was asked to explain the optimized approach, write code for it and tell about space and time complexity. Gave a DFS solution but he hinted for BFS approach and I got it. After giving BFS solution he further asked for any optimization and I optimized it with memoization. For the second ques we were running out of time so we directly jumped to a fully optimized approach and coded it.
Round 3 (Mid April, duration- 1hr, platform- Amazon Chime): This time there were two interviewers one with 2 yrs and the other one with 3 yrs of experience. They first asked for an introduction followed by questions on leadership principles. Then moved to coding questions:
First ques took a bit of time but eventually, I solved them the way the interviewer wanted. For the second ques, it took me no time to solve in the best time-space complexity. After solving both the interviewer as questions based on leadership principles and the interviewer seemed quite happy with the interview.
Now after giving this interview I was very happy and started expecting my last round (Bar-raiser round) but as it is said “Expected never happens”, the quote came true. Around 1.5 months passed and I didn’t receive any further communication from HR, so I decided to reach out to them, after connecting with them they told me that they will schedule my BR-round in the upcoming weeks but that didn’t happen.
