Amazon Interview Experience
April 2021(1 Year Experienced)
Round 1: First round comprised of 2 coding questions on the hackerrank platform
- Optimal file merge (solved by using priority queue /heaps). https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/optimal-file-merge-patterns/
- Second question used the concept of BFS in a matrix. https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/shortest-distance-two-cells-matrix-grid/
We also have to write the approach used for both these coding questions.
The written round was cleared, and I got an email for a telephonic round which was on Google meet
Round 2: The interviewer gave me one question and a shared file to do any rough work or write code there
- The question was: https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/find-next-greater-number-set-digits/. I gave the brute force approach but could not properly figure out the optimised solution for this question so was not selected for further rounds.
- And other questions he asked were around the leadership principles of Amazon.
Tips- Practice Data structure and algorithms questions a lot and also go through the Amazon leadership principles properly, as they focus on them a lot. All the Best!
