    Interview Details

    Submitted resume and was contacted via email by a recruiter/hiring manager. Answered a couple of preliminary questions - most people you have ever led/managed, willingness to relocate, etc. Reviewed the links provided that gave background on their fulfillment centers operations. Set up follow-on phone interview which consisted of multiple behavioral-based questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions weren't difficult, but you need to be very specific in your responses. Interviewer wasn't particularly interested in leadership philosophy as much as how exactly it was applied.   Answer Question

    Standard interview process. Did my best to impress. Nearly all the young interviewees were offered positions with the company. Looks like you'll work long hours and it will be difficult. Would be interesting to know what most Area/Ops Managers that remain with the company are doing 5 years after hire.

    Interview Process was very difficult if you are not prepared. All of the questions are behavioral based which require detailed answers based on the STAR method. Prior to this interview, I had never heard of the STAR method. Typical questions, Tell me a time when....

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Amazon.com in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview process started 2 months ago with recruiter. That was followed up by emails which led to onsite interview. Started tour at 7 followed by four 45 min interviews. Very disappointed with first 2 interviewers as they were not nearly as experienced as I am in Logistics/Distribution and obviously didn't understand the significance of what I was describing to them.

    Interview Questions
    • None were difficult...I thought the entire process was easy. They're not looking for true leaders, they're looking for managers.   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Amazon.com in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter at Amazon through a LinkedIn group that we share. I sent him my resume and received a wealth of information in return, including job descriptions for two separate management levels. Two days later he e-mailed me and arranged for us to have a 30-minute "get to know you" phone conversation. Fortunately, in reading several Glassdoor reviews, I was prepared for a more intensive phone screening! The recruiter was very pleasant and informal when he called, and he immediately put me at ease. We had a relaxed conversation throughout. Unfortunately, the position he originally contacted me about had just closed, and he explained that Amazon's management hiring cycle typically runs March through August, but that he would like to remain in contact with me in the event that there should be an unforeseen opening. He then explained Amazon's business philosophy and reliance upon Kaizen, as well as the leadership structure of the company (below the corporate level). Afterwards, he asked me three, direct questions: Can you describe your last two jobs? When you arrived in those positions, did you have to "fix" them, or were they functioning well? What metrics did you use to track your progress and show improvement? We ended up speaking for 55 minutes, in what had been scheduled for 30. Overall, it was a positive experience--I simply wish I had not missed the opportunity cycle!
