Amazon Interview Experience for Programmer Analyst 2021

  • Last Updated : 16 Jun, 2021

I appeared for the Amazon Programmer Analyst Hiring process in Pool-Campus 2021 with no previous work or internship experience. There were a total of 5 rounds (1 Online Coding + 4 Technical Interviews). The interviews were virtual due to the pandemic.

Round 1 (Online Coding): 

This round was conducted on the HackerEarth platform and contained 10 MCQs based on java and 3 coding questions. The difficulty of these questions was medium and I was able to solve 2 of the coding questions completely.

Round 2 (Technical Interview):

All the interview rounds were conducted on amazon chime and live code was used to solve the coding question. 



  • The interviewer started with his introduction and asked me the same.
  • We had a short discussion on my projects.
  • Then he gave me a code snippet and asked me to debug the code. I was able to fix the code pretty easily.
  • Then he gave me this question to solve https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/even-numbers-even-index-odd-numbers-odd-index/, I initially gave a naive solution but later was able to give an optimized solution with a hint from the interviewer.
  • The next question was similar to https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/stock-buy-sell/ but I was asked to maximize loss due to lack of time he asked me the approach instead of the entire code.
  • Few programming languages based questions were asked.
  • A couple of behavioral questions.
  • At last, he asked if I had any questions for him, I asked few relevant questions.

Round 3 (Technical Interview):

Round 4 (Technical + Behavioral Interview):

  • The interviewer started with his introduction and asked me the same.
  • A brief discussion on my projects. He was interested in every minor detail from technologies to algorithms used.
  • Behavioral questions like
  • What changes did you fight for?
  • What is something you are proud of?
  • What mistakes did you make?
  • How do you see yourself in 5 years?
  • and few I can’t remember.
  • I asked few position-related questions at the end.

Round 5 (Technical + Behavioral Interview):

  • This round was similar to the previous, Introduction followed by project discussion.
  • Few questions related to basic Computer Science concepts.
  • A lot of behavioral questions and also a few follow-up questions to my answers.

All the Interviews lasted 1 hr and the interviewers were very friendly.

Few Tips:

  • Read as many interview experiences as possible.
  • During the coding round, keep talking to the interviewer regarding your approach, assumptions, time complexity and ask questions to narrow down the problem.
  • Write clean production-ready code by considering edge cases.
  • When asked about projects try to explain every small detail as possible.
  • Go through amazon’s leadership principles most of the behavioral questions are related to those.
  • Answer behavioral questions using the STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) method.
  • Don’t panic whenever you get stuck, Interviewers are there to help you.
