    Technical Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    A recruiter from Amazon contacted me, stating that he found my resume in the company DB and if I was interested in a Technical Project Manager role. After the initial screening they asked me to complete a online test. I was expecting management related question, but I was surprised to see technical questions.

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon.com.

    Interview

    Applied online, received an email from a recruiter to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was about an hour. Lots of behavioral type questions. One technical question. The interviewer was easy to talk with and professional. Most of the questions were others I found on this website, so I felt prepared. The biggest reason (I think) I didn't move further in the process was because my experience in a key area was simply weaker than they wanted.

    Interview

    The job posting was on Craigslist. I never met a potential employer in person. I went through three phone interviews for the job before being offered the position. They never gave me a call back number so it would be difficult to get in touch with anyone if you were to miss the phone call.
