Brand Manager Interview

Brand Manager
Seattle, WA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com in September 2012.

Interview Details – I was initially contacted about a planning position but moved into this role instead after 2 phone interviews. Started process over for second roll with 2 phone screens before being flown in for a full day of interviews (7 people). The full day of interviews is intense. There is lots of good information on glass door about the types of questions to expect. Of the 50+ questions I prepared answers for (found on glass door), I was asked at least 75% of them. I spent a lot of time preparing for the interviews and it paid off.

There is a "bar raiser" interview and hiring manager and the "bar raiser" need to agree in order for you to get hired in most cases. My bar raiser was not as intense as some of the others I read about on glass door, but I could tell who he was because his title didn't match the others in the loop of interviews. Mine was a director of finance and I was not interviewing for a finance job.

Overall process was intense and stressful, but well worth it!

Negotiation Details – Not much room for negotiation on base salary. Was only able to get that up a few thousand, however the sign on bonus (if one is offered) is where they are able to increase significantly.
