    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    There were three interviewers, all of them ask the similar behavior questions, don't know what the point is. One of the interviewer was a little bit impatient. Probably because he is having several interviews in a day, but he was not very patient with me when listening to my answer. Omg, how many words that I am supposed to write about this interview process? There were three interviewers, all of them ask the similar behavior questions, don't know what the point is. One of the interviewer was a little bit impatient. Probably because he is having several interviews in a day, but he was not very patient with me when listening to my answer. And he just thinks that I did not explain my thoughts well.

    There are three online assessments. If you pass these, then you'll get an interview. They interview on Amazon Chime, which is a Zoom-like software but developed by Amazon. The interview questions can be pretty random, but for behavioral, make sure to study the Amazon Leadership Principles
