The Amazon Company is an Internet-based retailer Company in America. The Company has an online book store but also sells DVD's, CD's, videos, soft-ware, video-games, toys and even jewelry. Amazon is a major producer of e-books and cloud-computing services. The Company offers international shipping to other countries for its products mostly the books. In 1999, Amazon launched amazon.com Auctions, a web auctions service which failed to attract the large market base. Currently, the Amazon market place is the largest online shop with the largest customer base. The AmazonFresh also offers grocery service that allows the clients to order home delivery.
The interviewing process at Amazon is quite long. After an online application, the applicant is called for a phone interview. The interview is quite technical as the company mostly deals in online transactions. The phone interviews can be as many as three. The face interview comes later and is usually much simpler than the phone interview. The employers are laid back and understanding as they strive to get a connection with the applicant.
