Recent Amazon on-site

Apr 7 15 Comments

Was exhausted with the amount of LP questions! I felt those were the toughest for just the amount of time they spend on it and drill down deep into specifics.

I am pretty confident and felt I did well. I am wondering if the amount of LP question in each round represent the level they want to hire or is it same for all levels?

I made it clear to the recruiter I am looking for a principal role. Looking for insights from people @Amazon and recent hires

Thanks!

Edit: LP= Leadership principles https://www.amazon.jobs/en/principles

    Tell me about the time that you ask on blind after onsite for our company ?

    What were your expectations and what do you learn for that experience?

    Anything you will do different next time ?

    Wondering what kind of whiteboard questions for a principle role?

    General speaking, more LP question usually indicates higher level role. For a L4 role Amazon ask 1 or 2 LP question. L5 needs flawless whiteboard question and 3 LP. I have never been any loop for L6+ though

      System design, OOP design and all the problems had deep deep dives into what and why. Most of the questions were around data structures and graphs.

    I also had an onsite with Amazon. Every interviewer asked the same LP questions.

    edit: I mean Leadership Principle questions. Not Leetcode or System Design questions.

      I've been interpreting it as Leadership Principles.

      No wonder I got rejected by Amazon despite monstrous LC prep.

      On a side note, there were no system design questions.

      My general setup while interviewing with Amazon was 3 LC questions and one system design question (4 total). Leadership Principle questions were scattered throughout the LC and SD questions.
