    Area Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sea Girt, NJ

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon (Sea Girt, NJ) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Same story as most. I took the on line management test, and was emailed about a month later. They wanted me to come to the local branch for a tour and (3) interviews.

    I have 15 + years of management experience, and I can not think of a less organized company to interview with. The first interview was with an HR rep. He was very dismissive of me from the time we shook hands. He just about called me fat. He just rushed over the questions, no eye contact because he was typing answers while I was speaking. I found this the case with all 3 people who I interviewed with. This was just really distracting.
    The second interview was with someone else, who did not really introduce himself. Who was more happy with eating lunch than speaking to me.
    The third was with a woman who talked more about herself than me. Again no eye contact with me.
    They tell you to answer in STAR, but I did not get a chance to, as each of them interrupted me while I was speaking.

    If you have not managed over 100 people do not even bother apply for this role. Or just lie, they do not check. I have more experience than the people that have interviewed me. Amazon also preaches much about how diverse they are. If you are a straight, white, male over 40 I would suggest you look elsewhere, because Amazon does not want you. In fear of offending anyone I changed locations and did not interview at the site mentioned above.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted for phone interview after applying online. Everything seemed to go well. Was not passed on for in-person inerview.

    I did ask why there were so many negative comments about the position and company on glssdoor. I also asked if area manager position turnover was really as high as indicated by glassdoor comments. So maybe thats why???

    Unfortuneately their policy is to not tell you what went wrong...
