Amazon software development engineer online assessment

This assessment is a combination of coding and behavioural tests and is used for software development engineer positions.

For internship and graduate positions, the assessment consists of code debugging, coding test, the Work Style assessment, and technical problem-solving assessment.

If you are applying for a more senior software development engineer position, the assessment will include two coding questions, a coding approach questionnaire, and the Work Style assessment.

Amazon maintenance technician test

The Amazon maintenance technician test is an adaptation of the Ramsay Mechanical Test and is administered to applicants for maintenance jobs. This is used to assess an applican’s aptitude for mechanical maintenance and is similar to a mechanical reasoning test.

The test is based on topics from the Ramsay Mechanical Test such as:

  • Pulleys
  • Levers
  • Tool Knowledge
  • Voltage
  • Currents

Area Manager Job Tryout

This online assessment takes around 45 minutes to complete, and is divided into 5 sections:

Work scenario: Like a situational judgement test, you will be presented with hypothetical workplace scenarios and will be required to identify the best way to respond.

Manage your day: Used to assess your time management and organisation skills, you will need to arrange tasks according to their urgency and priority.

Run your area: You will receive a report similar to those you can expect on the job. You will need to analyse the data, answer questions, and make decisions based on the report.

Tell us your story: Here you will need to give some background information on your experience and education.

Describe your approach: A type of personality test where you will need to state how much you identify with the statements.

Financial analyst excel test

An Amazon Excel assessment test is required for candidates applying for a financial analyst post. This is used to measure an applican’s proficiency using Microsoft Excel.

Topics that typically appear on the test include:

  • Macro creation
  • Advanced properties
  • Formatting
  • Advanced formula creation.

Amazon MBA assessment

The Amazon MBA assessment is administered to MBA and master's level applicants for full-time and internship positions.

The assessment is split up into three parts:

  • Work sample simulation: you will be given a virtual task that will be relevant to your future role
  • Work style assessment: evaluates your professional preferences to determine your fit with Amazon's culture
  • Career experience survey: a questionnaire where you will provide your preferences for current MBA roles

Amazon Versant Test

The Amazon Versant test evaluates your ability to grasp and communicate in the English language. The test assesses several facets of language ability and is split up into five sections:

Typing: You will be given a passage of text and will need to type as many words as possible in 60 seconds. This section assesses both your speed and accuracy when typing.

Complete the sentence: You will have 25 seconds to read a sentence and identify the word that makes the sentence make sense and grammatically correct.

Dictation: A series of sentences will be played, and you will have 25 seconds to type out what you have just heard. Again, speed and accuracy are important here.

Reconstruct the paragraph: You will be given 30 seconds to read a paragraph. After that, the paragraph will be deleted, and you will have 90 seconds to type it back in.

Email writing: Within just 100 words, you will need to construct an email that covers all key points outlined to you.

Telephone interview

Telephone interviews at Amazon consist of behavioural questions, with their basis rooted in its Leadership Principles. You’ll be asked about challenges you’ve faced in the past, and the approach you took to overcome them.

Questions typically focus on areas like team motivation, collaboration, problem-solving and risk. A key thing the hiring team looks for at this stage is data-based evidence, so be sure to include supporting information in your answers.

Face-to-face interview

If you’re successful in your Amazon online tests, you’ll be invited to an in-person Amazon interview, which will last between 45 minutes to an hour.

Depending on the position, you can expect to meet anywhere between two and seven interview personnel, including representatives of your prospective team, managers, and what Amazon refers to as ‘Bar Raisers’. These are individuals from an unrelated department there to give an objective opinion on your suitability.

As with your telephone interview, questions will be behavioural, so prepare several possible examples in advance.

Assessment centre

Every Amazon business team operates its own specific recruitment process, and some may require you to attend an in-person assessment day.

The activities you’ll undertake here vary greatly depending on the job function, but role play exercises and group activities are common. You may also be required to take a written assessment or a job-specific test, such as a coding exercise. You’ll be informed in advance of the nature of your assessment day.

Amazon endeavours to respond to applicants as quickly as possible, and states a turnaround of five working days post interview, so whatever the final stage of your application, you can expect to know the results within a week.

    First attempt - good experience

    The timed test was a bit difficult. I need to pace myself better. I took up too much time on the first questions. I suspect this will get better with more practice as this was my first try.
