I interviewed for Amazon in November 2020. I applied through a referral which helped in expediting the process.
There were 2 DS questions. We had to explain the approach and write the time complexity and space complexity as well. There was one behavioural assessment after this. This was quite simple and straightforward.
Q1. Given a list of the duration of songs and a time ‘t’, find 2 songs that end at exactly t-30 seconds. There were constraints on how to handle multiple answers. Simple brute force and sorting worked on this.
Q2. This was also an easy to medium vector implementation question.
