    Asset Protection Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lexington-Fayette, KY
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Amazon (Lexington-Fayette, KY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    A lot of questions about situations that I have feeling they care more about answers on questions ( you could learn them before the interview) than about real job situations... for protw/security job having interview with some of IT process mngrs instead of asset protection or director of security is ridiculous

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Lexington-Fayette, KY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    the interview is very basic you fill out a questionnaire online. That's it. Amazon usually hires temps so there is no interview process per say. if you direct hire there is a basic interview you get at the hiring event. The biggest thing about getting hired or not is your drug test or criminal background.

    Warehouse Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amazon (Lexington-Fayette, KY).

    Interview

    I was hired through a temp agency that Amazon works with to provide temporary labor for their "peak" period. This period is usually starts at the end of October or early November and ends after Christmas. The temp agency has every thing well organized and took you through some pre employment testing to see if you have the basic competencies that may be required at the Warehouse. After those tests were taken and you have submitted all of your proper documentation you can either be hired on the spot and given a start date or if they don't need you yet you will be notified when they will need you. There was never an interview just passing the skills test and watching a video that tells you what to expect. It was a pretty cut and dried process

    Interview Questions

    • It was a very easy process. No real interview you talked with a person that discussed your schedule and work assignment preference.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Amazon (Lexington-Fayette, KY) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Had a phone screen that went terrible. Military recruiter said I had great content; however, the delivery was not the best. Went to interview and tour LEX2 and was offered position 1 week later.

    Interview Questions

    Warehouse Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Amazon (Lexington-Fayette, KY) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Very easy, almost no interview, take a saliva drug test and a background check, if all comes back, you're hired. You will work for a staffing agency in most cases and then when you convert to full-time, you will interview with someone you already know in the department you already work in. Its easy to get hired, both good and bad, easy to get a job, bad because there is basically no filtering.
