Online Application

This process took around 30 minutes to complete. Amazon requires you to fill in personal information and submit a CV. They did not require you to write a cover letter. John found his internship opportunity on Bright Network.

Expect an immediate response before progressing to the next stage.

Online Tests

Following the initial application, John has to complete two scenario-based tests, both around 30 minutes. The first test was focused on leadership & decision making. The second was based on data analysis and reading graphs and data to make judgements.

Example task

For the first test, a question that John faced was: “An Associate has this specific issue, how would you go about dealing with it?”. For the second test, a typical question would be based on percentage increases relating to production costs of stock and giving a decision of which product to discontinue.

How to respond for success

John recommends that you have a good understanding of Amazon’s Leadership Principles, which are used all of the time at Amazon to make decisions. It’s good practice to use these when justifying why you made a decision as you will make in the online tests and in interviews later on in the application process.

Expect a 2-week wait before progressing to the next stage.

Final Interview

This process consists of two, 30-minute interviews. John found that they were closely linked to the previous tests in the application process.

How to respond for success

Having a thorough understanding of Amazon’s processes within the Fulfilment Centre is crucial for an exceptional interview. John learnt many of the basic but fundamental Acronyms that amazon uses as a business. These include “FBA” (Fulfilment By Amazon) and “CPU” (Cost per unit). You can learn these acronyms on Commerce Nurse. ​​
