Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Atlanta, GA) in October 2017.

Interview

I applied online for the position was turned down. Then I reapplied a couple months later and was contacted by an Amazon recruiter. I took part in 3-4 phone screenings, traveled for an on-site interview, and then had one more phone screen. I also submitted a writing sample that involved some work. I admire Amazon but the process left me cold to the point I wasn't that disappointed that I didn't get an offer.. I've never interviewed anywhere for a management position that lacked balance. They were auditioning me and shared very little about the position. I still don't know much about the position or the goals. After several phone screens I took two days off from my current job to visit Amazon at the site I would be working at. I spoke to the receptionist. Then I was led to a conference room and parked by myself there with a laptop and an phone. . I spoke to one live person on site for 45 minutes and 4 others via skype and conference call and then shown the door 5 hours later. They literally ordered my a sub sandwich and dropped it off so I could eat by myself for lunch. No tour of the building. No introductions to the team... No meal with my potential boss since I wasn't flying until the following morning. I was trying to be positive and tell myself there was a method to this that I maybe didn't appreciate but flying me down for 2 days for 45 minutes of face time was really disrespectful of my time. and I don't know of a way to spin that. Joining the US Marine Corps was more interactive and respectful..

    Interview

    Long but professional, multi-day, phone then small groups hour after hour for 4 hours then a video call to Seattle, then next day a phone screen, answering similar questions with new examples for so long in one day was challenging to not repeat examples due to nerves and not wanting to take time to check notes but notes were allowed

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon (Las Vegas, NV) in April 2017.

    Interview

    30 min telephone interview with (1) Math question and about 4 Behavioral questions. Worst interviewer I have ever had. Very unprofessional with a "cocky" attitude. While this company maybe on the up with its "ecommerce' bravado, I am glad I did not get a second interview. This place is nothing more than a glorified warehouse. Amazon might be a good place for a new college grad but, if you are Mid Career this is not the place for you. My interviewer clearly could care less about the interview, was not prepared to conduct an interview and could not answer any of my questions clearly or "concise" as they advertise when they set you up for an interview. Waste of time talking to a 12 year old in an interview

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral questions and (1) Math problem. Very simple questions and math problem. Nothing related to the position and of minimal value to the position I was interviewing for. Very unprofessional interview structure   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I shouldn't have been in the process if they knew upfront that they couldn't meet my salary requirements that I clearly communicated multiple times. It was a complete waste of my time, waste of their money and waste of energy that frustrated me because as a potential employee they didn't take into consideration me.

    Reasons for Declining

    Their idea of compensation isn't in line with the industry. Their CEO needs to revamp his idea on how to compensate his current employees and possible future employees.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon in August 2015.

    Interview

    HR scheduled phone interview, then missed it. I emailed her back to ask whether she wanted to reschedule and still consider me, she replied after two days and rescheduled it. Then she missed the interview again. It is really not professional, this HR is wasting my time. I think she changed her mind after sending out the first email or something happened. I am surprised that this kind of thing can happen in Amazon.
