    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Had six interviews most questions were behavioural with only 2 easy technical questions. Interviewers were looking to understand work style and look for any potential red flag. Overall, I expected the interview to be more technical since it was for a junior position but mostly focused on behavioural and previous experience questions.

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Juli 2019 bei Abebooks (München, Bayern).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I went trough 7 interviews, including the whole day on-site. Overall, the experience was positive. Given that I was based in Germany and the recruiter in Canada, they answered all my emails promptly and organised interviews efficiently. All interviewers asked behavioural questions which, especially during on-site interview, was boring: I received similar questions and repeated same stories over and over again. This part I found quite exhausting and monotonous.

    In the end, I received a very general answer, which I am sure did not reflect reality, saying that my profile did not closely matched the role. What? They made me and AbeBooks employees to spend (or rather waste) so much time just to figure out the mismatch? This was the biggest frustration of the overall experience: they should have figured this out at the very beginning of the interview process.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • Why do you want to work at AbeBooks.
      Tell me about a time when... you struggled with a project; you had to made a difficult decision; you took a risk etc   Frage beantworten

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Applied through Amazon jon portal. Recruiter contacted after 4 weeks. First Telephonic with Product Manager and Second Telephonic with CEO.

    Needed consistent followups to get updates. Both the rounds had behavioral questions and both the interviewers appreciated my technical depth and breadth. But, it was very evident that it was little overwhelming for a mediocre company like Abebooks. Ultimately, they decided to fill this role with a non technical candidate and gave me a pass.

    I must add a very specific feedback about Amazon hiring process. Though the company prides itself about the 14 principles, none of them are evident in their actions during hiring process - none at all. I will be surprised if they do infact follow these in their projects, for real.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • standard behavioral questions. Tell me about a time - you took leadership, you had a challenge, you managed ambiguity, you did something to enhance customer satisfaction..   Frage beantworten

    The hiring process is super long. First you take an analytical test and then a psychological test. Then the interview was with 3 different rounds with 4 different managers. Most of it was behavioural questions. They want you to tell a story about what you did and how you overcame it and what you learned from it. Overall it felt like each round was asking the same questions so you felt repetitive. Good experience.

    Interview process took a while. All interviews had many behaviour questions such as describe the situation, show me the example and etc. There is a small chronology:
    1) First phone screen with database developer. He asked about my experience, tools and etc.
    2) SQL test. It wasn't difficult. They provided a data model and database and ask to answer several questions and send SQL queries.
    2) Second phone screen with Manager.
    3) On-site interview. It was a nice journey to Victoria. I spent a whole day in the company and had multiple interviews with various teams and managers. In addition, got a small analytical test. Wasn't complicated. This day was challenging but it definitely worth the effort.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I applied online through Abebook's website and they responded in a week with a time for a phone interview. The connection was somewhat glitching, but overall it was an easy interview.

    Following that they organized a series of in-house interviews that revolved mostly around my past experience and previous work. Questions seemed to revolve around Amazon principles with a constant focus of past situations.

    Overall the process was fun and the interviewers were nice and friendly.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • How do you deal with ambiguity in emails? Tell me about a time when you made a mistake. Tell me a situation when you disagreed with your manager. Tell me about a difficult situation you handled with a customer.   Frage beantworten

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    It was a panel interview and was completely focused on standard behavioral questions. It was very impersonal and genetic yet didn't cover any of my previous experience. There were some complex math questions they wanted me to complete in my head. One guy was insistent on asking a ton of trick questions that he thought were clever, but were not logical. My answers were correct and logical but I could tell he wasn't happy with my answers because it wasn't what he had thought of first. It was almost like he was jealous and too arrogant to consider a different perspective than his own. I left feeling like I would never want to work there or apply for a position in the future. I never got an offer but was planning on declining anyways. The questions I posted are not a joke, they are exactly what I was asked. Part of an interview should also be convincing the candidate that they would want to work there, but I was certainly not convinced in the slightest. They just kept pointing out that they had a nice office, and nothing about the people.
