At Amazon no matter which role you interview for, we value leadership principles which we use everyday. It is something peculiar with Amazon, but it is one of the important part of the interview. Of course there will be technical coding interviews, which is pretty similar how every other tech company does it. https://www.amazon.jobs/en/principles , refer to these principles and have a scenario for each of them where you have demonstrated it in your life. This also tends to answer your 4th question about our culture.

Amazon interviews are like any other SDE interviews conducted by Google, Apple, etc. They expect you to have strong coding skills with little product design attitude. I think it's important to consistently practice coding problems, which is the only way to cement the basic skills they expect. Most importantly, you should be happy and maintain a clean thinking process so that they can evaluate you better.
