Technical Program Manager Interview

Interview Details

I have been approached by several Amazon recruiters via LinkedIn, and my resume has been in their DB. At some point I was contacted for a researcher position, something I didn't look for but became intrigued by based on subsequent research. Interviewer deemed me overqualified (lengthy, senior responsibilities vs. the 3-5yrs the job called for) and took it upon himself to submit an internal referral. From there, I was contacted by a Lab126 recruiter for a selection of openings, and we went with the TPM position.

Phone screen w/ a current TPM. Typical behavioral questions. Interviewer was sharp and picked up on and dug into details. Signs suggested it went reasonably well.

A week of radio silence passed and I emailed the recruiter. Expected another phone screen based on internet research, but the reply said they'd like to fly me out.

The on-site day was grueling. Back to back to back interviews. While I obviously would have been allowed a break if I asked, with each interviewer coming in on the heel of a departing one, I just wanted to get on with it.

Lunch (cafeteria) was w/ the director - seemed a good person to report to. Smart, expects a lot of his people, but kind/empathetic. I was relieved to relax a bit. More interviews followed. Being someone who gets de-energized by having to talk all day long I was drained at the end of the day.

All in all I found everyone I spoke w/ (incl. very first phone interviewer) seemingly very experienced, intelligent, hard-working...people I would respect and enjoy working with. Left w/ positive feelings about Amazon.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Amazon Lab126 in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was smooth. The recruiter got in touch with me and arranged a 1st phone interview with the hiring manager. There was a follow up phone screen and then I was invited to onsite interview. The interview was 3 hours long with 6 people. Got the response within 2 days to an offer. Smooth process and it took 2 weeks from 1st screen to an offer.
    Questions were more to gauge your progress in career and situational experiences.

    I was referred to the position by and employee. The interview process was pretty straightforward. I had a phone screen by a recruiter and then a 1/2 day of interviews by my Director, my boss, 2 team members, and a couple of peers. Questions included "what were your responsibilities at your previous job", "how would you debug/perform failure analysis on a product", and "where do you see yourself in 5 years"
