    Phone interviews with two hiring managers - I was considered for two positions in the same team. Turned down the onsite invitation because the recruiter I talked to prior to onsite was extremely rude - he made it very clear that he couldn't care less.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I had two phone interviews; one with the hiring manager and one with someone I would be working with closely that understood the details of the program I would be responsible for.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • This was a non-technical/ non-programmer role. There were no trick questions, The phone screen questions were specific to the program. The on site interview was five 45min back to back interviews, with a break for lunch. The questions were 100% behavioral based that are intended to be related to Amazons leadership principals. The "trick" to getting through these is to come prepared with SPECIFIC examples and how YOU contributed. I cannot stress enough to come prepared with examples.   1 Antwort

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Two phone interviews - both one hour. First interview with HM and was friendly and informative. Questions felt relevant to the role and my experience. Based on this experience I would definitely look at another role with Amazon. The second interview was quite the opposite. Interviewer became confrontational right at the beginning. This was a painful hour that felt more interrogative than an employee interview. Interviews go both ways but this person seemed to think he held all the cards. Everything needed to be explained two or three times and he kept saying he didn't understand. Interviewers can put people at ease and remain neutral. They might also provide a few positive nudges to get the very best from the candidate. unfortunately, this interviewer did neither and had me throwing up red flags several times during the interview. I ended the call thinking that in now way would I want to work anywhere near this person and what kind of atmosphere encourages this type of behavior. Two very different interviews so I'm left wondering about the culture much more than I'd hoped to be.

    Ich habe mich auf Empfehlung eines Mitarbeiters beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 3 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im April 2018 bei Amazon (Seattle, WA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The process took over three months. I submitted my application through a referral in the team. The hiring manager forwarded my application to the recruiter. Post the initial recruiter call, it took over a month to schedule the next phone round with the hiring manager. (In the process the hiring manager had changed). I was invited onsite for 6 rounds of interviews and also was given a written interview question to attempt and submit prior to the final round of interviews. Got a positive response two weeks after interview date.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • All the questions were leadership principles based and all the leadership principles were tested.
      Some interviewers can cut through your stories as you speak, but some would wait for you to complete before asking follow up questions. Both formats are very normal and nothing to be concerned about.   2 Antworten

    I can’t speak lowly enough about this interview process. What probably started out as a good idea has been so distorted and twisted that it results in an interview experience that is worse than most root canal procedures. First, the process itself – a phone screening by recruiting, a phone interview with the hiring manager, a written essay about how you exhibited one of their “14 Leadership Principles”, and finally the all-day in-person interview loop. Everything was going well until that last part. Hoo boy... where to begin? Amazon workers have clearly been indoctrinated into some very unusual and horrendous interview techniques. First, they each are assigned one of the “14 Leadership Principles” and they don’t veer from that topic. Second, apparently they each need to have oodles of information about each candidate for some lengthy write-up after they’re done with you that they must defend to others, so they each explain how they’re going to be “quickly typing” the entire session but that they’re “really listening! Really!”. As if this absolves them of the fact that it’s extremely rude and ineffective when interviewing a potential worker. They each made very little eye contact, often cut off my responses, and seemed distracted by many things on their laptops. To make matters worse, I was interviewed by one person, a “bar raiser”, who has god-like powers over your interview process, doesn’t even work on the team, is easy to spot (they’re the rudest of them all), and asks no questions about your ability to actually do your job. In fact, that’s the overarching theme – since they all have to strictly stay within bounds of the “14 Leadership Principles” (which are suspect to say the least with not one of them being ‘collaboration’, and one is actually ‘Is always right’! I kid you not – look it up). So nobody – not one person – actually asked me anything about how I would do my job. I got so numb by the end of it that I was just drolly repeating my stories, hoping to just get out of there with some semblance of my sanity left. They all share their opinions of you in advance with each other instead of waiting until the end, and they even share these opinions real time while you’re sitting there (did I mention how rude and humiliating this entire process is??), so by the time the last person interviewed me, he actually asked to offer me advice on my resume! I told him, sure, why not, and his advice was absolutely idiotic. The same resume I used to get their attention also worked at a place that I’m so grateful to be working now with a normal interview process. If you ever get the chance to avoid interviewing at Amazon.com, take it!
