Tax Manager Interview

Tax Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com.

Interview Details – I had two phone calls that varied from 15 minutes to 30 minutes. Then a few days later I received an email for an in-person interview. The in-person was about 6 hours. It was intense and exhausting, but there were no trick questions.

Interview Question – Before my interview I had to write a memo and during one of my interviews I had to explain the technical concepts in the memo. It wasn't that it was difficult, it was just that it was unexpected.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was asked for my salary expectations before the in person interview. It was awkward but it's what everyone that comes to Amazon must do.

Tax Manager Interview

Tax Manager
Seattle, WA

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Amazon.com in February 2014.

Interview Details – The process consisted of three phone interviews with an HR person, the hiring manager and a team member. After successfully completing those interviews, I was flown to the corporate headquarters to do in-person interviews. There were five interviews with each interviewer asking specific pre-determined behavioral questions. All of the questions related to the core principles. You should be ready to give examples of your own experiences for each of the principles.

Interview Question – There were no difficult or unexpected questions. The questions were all behavioral in nature. I cannot give the specific questions asked because of the NDA I signed, but they all related to the company's leadership principles.   Answer Question
