Product Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Negative Experience

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Amazon.

Interview

I got an email from an amazon recruiter about a position I had applied to. She had me answer some questions and send back to her. Then she said a scheduler would call me. Then nothing. I waited a few days and asked again. She said the team went with someone else. What the hell? Just wasted my time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online mid February for role, heard back two weeks later from recruiting coordinator via email with a request for a first round interview. Talked with the manager of the open position in an hour long phone call, heard back at the end I was moving to the second round of phone screens. Scheduled that two weeks out, conducted the second hour long screen. Didn't hear for a week, emailed the coordinator, she was on vacation and said I'd hear back to schedule an onsite interview. Had 6 rounds of interviews onsite. Very quick rounds 45 minutes long.
