Operations Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gardner, KS
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amazon (Gardner, KS) in March 2017.

Interview

Basic phone interview with math flow question to begin. Interviewed with existing Operations Manager. Next interview was in person at what I thought was the hiring location. Turned out to be hiring for another location in surrounding area. Interviewed with Managers from various cities that had been flown in to conduct interviews. We took a tour of the massive facility and then began the rotation of interviews. No real continuity to the process, just waited in conference room to be matched up with next interviewer. More candidates than interviewers so a break was built in. The problem was nobody communicated that so you felt like you got skipped or did they forget about me. Overall good experience just didn't match up with what they are looking for evidently.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon (Atlanta, GA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was very pleasant. I actually did not have a phone interview for some reason and instead went directly on-site for an in person interview with two VPs of Amazon operations. Amazon will pay for your flight and accommodations if you are out of state. Interview was very conversational and pleasant. A lot of behavioral questions and a lot of back and forth conversation, which I appreciated. They really wanted to hear about your leadership abilities and ability to work hard under high-pressure environments, so make sure you have some stories prepared.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    The Recruitment HR were responsive and were professional however the person who interviewed from Operations team was very unprofessional and rude. The interviewer even before it all started said 'this isn't the only thing he does and he is a very busy person and will have to answer with in a his time line', I do understand the time line however the initial part was really weird. Why schedule an interview when they didn't have time in hand. Then on it was more of open ended questions and the interviewer wanted a closed ended answers. I did send in a feedback as well stating the experience to Amazon however i didn't get any response on the same.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon.

    Interview

    Seemed very disorganized from the start. You can tell they were in a rush to get people in quickly. I had to correct my name on paperwork and in each interview.

    The tour of the facility was brief but you could get an immediate sense of how efficient they were. I appreciated the relaxed attitude the interviewers portrayed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Rotterdam (Netherlands)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Drei Vorstellungsgespräche mit unterschiedlichen Mitarbeitern. Nach einem Online Eignungstest folgte das erste Gespräch mit Human Resources. Darauf hin folgte ein Gespräch mit einem Operations Manager und Alumnus. Im letzten Gespräch wurden Details zu letztem Berufsumfeld und persönliche Details erfragt. Die Interviews waren ein Teil des Campus Recruitments, und waren alles klassische behavioural interviews. Eine gute Vorbereitung von Ereignissen der bisherigen Berufserfahrung im STARR system, ist sehr hilfreich.
