    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    First contact was quite friendly. By the time I spoke to the actual manager of the team the interview took a decidedly adversarial tone; did not sound like a person anyone would want to report to.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon in January 2017.

    Interview

    The first round was conducted in a back-to-back video conference format, 30 min each. Most of the question they asked are behavioral questions and one mini case question. So it's better to know your story behind your resume bullet points and fit them to those Amazon principles. They want to know what you actually did and they dig hard.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen with recruiting followed up by a phone interview with hiring manager. The hiring manager canceled on me twice, but they were very apologetic about it, however it's still not a very good candidate experience or first impression of the company. Both calls lasted 30-45 minutes and were basic phone screen type calls.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The process was straightforward. I had an intro call with the Hiring manager followed by a telephone interview. Then they got me to an in-person interview after some delay. When I got their I was arranged to speak with 7 persons including the hiring manager. The process and the questions themselves were not that difficult. Almost all of them were behavioral. I had a tricky situation with my bar raiser interview as we turned back from lunch a bit late and he didn't seem to be in a good mood. He asked me for ideas to improve their business picking up from what I told him and didn't seem satisfied with my responses.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in January 2017.

    Two phone screens, one full day interview in Seattle. All interviewers were asking the same boring questions without really trying to learn about my skills. Their interview process is not working for well-experienced people.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Initially started with a 1.5 hour long online and written assessment to apply for all their University & MBA graduate programs. I'm assuming they used that assessment to match me up with the roles they thought I might fit in. Had two 30 minute back-to-back interviews where they asked me typical behavioral questions. Mostly geared towards culture fit and work experience.
