Amazon Marketing Intern Interview Questions

Questions to ask the interviewer during your marketing internship interview

Most employers will ask you if you have any questions at the end of your interview. In an interview, it’s important to ask questions as it shows you’re interested in learning more about the company/role, demonstrates good communication skills, and helps you determine if the role is right for you. Here are some good marketing interview questions you should ask:

  • How do you evaluate your interns?
  • What is your onboarding process like?
  • What’s the next step in the application process?
  • What’s the day-to-day work like for this internship?
  • In the first three months, what do you want me to accomplish?
  • What are the most rewarding/challenging aspects of this job?
  • In your opinion, how would you describe the company’s culture?
  • In your opinion, what are some key qualities of a successful intern?
  • Which marketing channels or strategies do you find the most successful?
  • When it comes to reaching and engaging your customers, what are your unique challenges?
  • How’s the company doing right now? What’s the biggest opportunity/challenge?
  • Once this role is successfully completed, will there be opportunities for full-time employment?
  • Why should we consider you for this position over other candidates?

    What the interviewer wants to know:

    Most candidates who reach this stage are qualified for the job. So qualifications aren’t enough to set you apart from other candidates. That’s the whole point of the interview – to find out if you’re the one.

    Interview Preparation Checklist for Technical Interviews

    With that in mind, here are some tips for the technical interviews.

  • Always bring a pen, a backup pen, and paper even though it’s a ‘programming interview’.
  • Don’t be afraid to restate the question/problem. You might have some time limit (an hour), but it makes sense to make sure you fully understand the question, then figure out the best method to solve, and lastly spend a fraction of the time actually executing.
  • Understand the properties of data structures and how to use them.
  • Understand how your language uses internal structures to manage the codes/objects you write. 5. Like all Amazon interviews, being concise is key. This means not talking too much, but not leaving out key points. The interview should never be a monologue.
  • Your technical skills are an important part of the hiring equation, but it’s also important for interviewers to know what you did, how you did it, and in what context. Using the STAR Method is the best way to to do this (See Chapter 7). Specifically, Amazon hiring managers want to know a few things about your technical expertise. Be ready to address these two big questions. 1. How you work on a team. Are you a strong communicator? Have you worked cross-functionally? What examples do you have of this? 2. Achievements + impact. You might have created some great system, but how was this used? What impact did it have in the business? Can you speak in terms of speed, efficiency, ROI, sales, revenue, marketing, etc.? Furthermore, there are hundreds of questions that have already been posted online for you to practice:

    I recommend reading the book Cracking the Coding Interview which will give you a more thorough list of questions to study!
