Amazon Warehouse Assessment Test

The Amazon assessment test for warehouse position is rather short. It assesses whether you understand wordings on packaging and can, therefore, pick the right product for packaging.

The Situational judgment test is a bit longer and calculates what decisions you will make in different situations while working in the warehouse. It is essential to study for these tests to understand what they are looking for.

Interviewing for a warehouse position is to assess your abilities based on your performances on the warehouse assessment test and to check whether you possess the motivation and cultural fit to work at Amazon.

Amazon has recently opened thousands of positions for the warehouse and fulfillment centers across the United States. Don't miss the opportunity – practice for the test using our Amazon warehouse preparation pack, pass the assessment with confidence, and get the job.

Amazon Financial Analyst Interview Process

To become a financial analyst at Amazon, you must successfully pass a 1-hour financial analyst Excel test and a series of behavioral and case study interviews.

The Amazon Excel test requires you to master the different features of the software. This doesn't mean you won't see any basic or intermediate questions on the advanced level test. They will, however, be the minority.

Thus, most of the questions on this excel assessment will deal with formulas, macro creation, advanced formatting, and document properties.

Additionally, one of your in-person interviews will likely include a case study interview. Usually, this case study will consist of a complex and realistic work situation or conflict that you'll need to resolve while explaining your thought process to your interviewers (sounds annoying, we know).

To come prepared for these assessments and interviews, we recommend practicing using our thorough financial analyst preparation material (created by test experts). Note that there are dozens of candidates who compete for every open financial analyst position at Amazon, so to beat the competition you have to score high.

Here's what one of our customers says about the preparation pack:

"The PrepPack was just what I needed. I had been out of the workplace for a year and a half. I was also great with Excel, but you can get rusty when not using the program for a while. The PrepPack got me right back into the saddle again. :)"

Amazon Work Style Assessment

The Amazon Work Style assessment will assess qualities important to succeeding within Amazon's unique culture. It is usually the final test section given in the Amazon online assessment for various positions.

Amazon's Work Style Assessment consists of 38 questions and it's untimed. However, it takes most candidates about 15 minutes to complete.

On this assessment, you'll be presented with various statements and you'll need to rate the extent to which you agree or disagree with them (5 options given).

To prepare for this test section, we recommend practicing work-related personality test questions, which are the core of this assessment.

Knowing how to answer such questions correctly will skyrocket your chances to pass this section. Thus, we've created a comprehensive preparation for personality tests that simulates the questions you'll likely encounter on this work style survey.

Here's what one of our customers had to say about the personality test PrepPack™:

"It helped me identify areas that I didn't think were an issue. So many times, on these tests you quickly answer and not knowing how the results are affected when choices are "pick which best describes you". Knowing how it changes the results made me be more cognizant of how I answer particular questions."
