Senior Product Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon.

Interview

Two back-to-back interviews (1:1 format). Mainly behavior and mini case. They are all around the Leadership Principles of Amazon. Please make sure you are familiar with those. They interview a lot of candidates so it can feel a little mechanical/checking the box.

    Average Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I responded to an online job posting that was somewhat vague but intriguing. Email contact indicating a screening interview. But it was actually with the hiring manager who seemed distracted and unprepared for the interview. Honestly I'm not even sure if I was talking to the right person. In short a strange and unflattering experience for Amazon.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amazon in March 2017.

    Interview

    Two rounds of video interviews, 30 min. each in one day. The first interviewer asked me behavioral questions and the second interviewer asked me both behavioral and case questions. Questions were sometimes difficult as they asked more details in one question. Case was short but was about supply chain at which I was not good.
