What people are saying about Amazon
The Work-Life Bowl

What’s a good website or reference to revamp my resume. My current team of leaders have created an environment of peers looking to call you out to make themselves feel better, we’ve lost 3 people and they just added a workload to those of us who speak out and if we say we don’t have the bandwidth they threaten you with a pip. The culture is not where it used to be and after 7 years working my way as a season tier 1 to an L5 PM I think it’s time as they see to seek opportunities outside of Amazon

I recently was offered a role at Uber for financial risk management and currently at Amazon doing similar work. I was curious if anyone at uber can provide their inputs on Uber corporate culture, internal transfer (how common, how doable). Also, wanted to get people general advice. The salary is ok but the benefits are def better than Amazon and I get to move to NYC. My biggest concern is changing job family and doing it at amazon is easier but I also dislike Seattle.

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in Mar 2020
InterviewI will split this review into 2 sections pertaining to my preparation process and interview process.
First, I prepared by reaching out to my OCM (Office of Career Management) part of my MBA program. They reached out to the alumni that worked in the specific job and connected me with them. This was essential to my process and helped me a lot as it helped me get an inside look of the interviewers thought process before the interview.
I then prepared a document to save and answer any interview question that I could find from resources, such as Glass Door, pertaining to typical Amazon behavioral interview questions.
I also watched interview related YouTube videos that helped me prepare. Since Amazon is such a large company and hires a lot of people, there are a lot of these videos available. There are a few YouTube channels dedicated to the Amazon hiring process and interview preparation.
I then reviewed the leadership principles and familiarized myself with them. I paired behavioral questions with these principles, and related them to my experience via the STAR format.
One thing I HIGHLY suggest is practicing your responses, making them fluid and natural as part of a normal conversation. Record yourself, practice in the mirror, etc. Also, do NOT simply write down your responses and read them to the interviewer. This will get you negative points, and possibly cause them to pass on you.
Total time: 3 HR, 15 Min.
4 interview, 45 min long, 15 min. break after 2nd interview.
Amazon is moving towards online interview process. There are not doing as much on-campus interviews or flying candidates out to the location for in-person interviews.
My Amazon interview was a total of FOUR interviews. Each of these interviews lasted for 45 minutes. Amazon will try to do all 4 of these interviews within 1 day.
Be prepared to commit to the interview date, and be prepared for it to take the better half of the day.
Each interviewer was punctual and direct. They gave a quick introduction of themselves, asked for a quick introduction of myself, and then quickly moved into behavioral type questioning.
Preparing ahead of time is essential. I HIGHLY recommend the STAR format. Amazon is very results driven. Don't focus on non-essential information. Focus on actions and results.
Each interviewer will ask you for more details and challenge you during the interview. Be prepared to be challenged and have those answers ready if possible.
2 of the interviewers I had gave me hypothetical questions to get to know my thought process better and to learn what my managerial style is like.
All in all, it was a great experience. If you make it to this round of interview, you will most likely do well. Amazon is selective in their candidates, and seek out very qualified individuals for positions like this. You will more than likely enjoy this interview. My preparation helped me a great deal. Do not take the preparation lightly.
Finally, the questions that I included were part of my preparation and found online. They were also asked by the interviewer. Not all of the questions asked are included.Interview
