    Entretien de Community Engagement Manager

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme - Herndon, VA (États-Unis)
    Aucune offre d'embauche
    Expérience négative
    Difficulté moyenne

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris +2 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Amazon (Herndon, VA (États-Unis)) en janvier 2018.

    Entretien

    Terribly inefficient process. A recruiter reached out about 1 month after I had applied online. The recruiter had clearly used a template, but forgot to change the update it with the correct job title I had applied for. The recruiter asked me to answer 4 essay questions - which I can only assume were her screening questions because she was too lazy to speak with me. It then took another 4 weeks for the recruiting scheduler to coordinate a phone interview with the hiring manager. The hiring manager was clearly under qualified and lacked relevant experience. The whole process was a waste of time for both the company and for me as an applicant. Basic information around compensation, team structure, and travel expectations could - and should - have been conveyed by the recruiter during the initial screening process. For a large company like Amazon Web Services, you would have expected better processes in place and competent hiring managers. Final round interview would have included a presentation of some sort.

    Very straightforward. A recruiter contacted me and explained the entire process upfront. My first interview was with the hiring manager (not a recruiter). There was a big emphasis on Amazon core values, even though it was for Goodreads specifically. I made sure that each of my answers correlated with a core value. Within two days, I was informed that I was not selected for further interview rounds.

    Very long process. Weeks between applying and then the initial phone interview with the hiring manager, and then an all-day interview process with the hiring manager and members of related teams and others in completely unrelated roles.

    Entretien de Community Manager

    Entretien dificile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 3 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Amazon (Seattle, WA (États-Unis)) en février 2014.

    Entretien

    I applied online (without any referrals) and got a call back two weeks later. The process lasted three to four weeks for me and included several phone interviews and a writing test before the in person interviews. The writing test was extensive and needed to be finished before the in person interview.

    Amazon does take care of you during the process (travel, expenses). They have a whole department that takes care of this! The actual interviews are quite challenging. I spoke with 6 different people during the in-person interviews (almost 45mins to an hour each) including a lunch interview. One thing I found interesting was that the interviewers barely make eye contact with you during the interview because they need to fill out a comprehensive STAR form with all your answers.

    At times, it felt like they were trying to trick you just to see how you'd react, especially when they'd bring someone in from a completely different department to test you. This style of interviewing can be exciting for some and I'm guessing that's how they weed out people that don't fit their culture.

    The entire interviewing process at Amazon seems like a machine. The recruiter I had been first speaking to had left her job mid-way through my process and another. Overall, it seems like employees are constantly having to interview candidates.

    Entretien

    Interview was a phone screening. We talked about the role and some ideas I had for the role. Then she asked a lot of data/entry questions that had absolutely nothing to do with the job role whatsoever. Mostly canned responses that insulted me and my time. Since we went over the 1-hour limit they allowed me 15 minutes to ask questions.

    Entretien de Continuous Improvement Manager

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme - Los Angeles, CA (États-Unis)
    Aucune offre d'embauche
    Expérience neutre
    Difficulté moyenne

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 3 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Amazon (Los Angeles, CA (États-Unis)) en février 2015.

    Entretien

    step 1 - recruiter phone screening
    step 2 - hiring manager phone screen
    step 3 - hiring managers peer phone screen
    step 4 - in person interview at fulfillment center
    Keys to interviewing at Amazon are knowing their leadership principles and being proficient with STAR question- answers
    I will concentrate on the step 4 outlined above as this is where you really must shine to get an offer.
    It was an all-day affair about 6 hours with the same people that did the phone screening as well other team members. 6 interviews in all. All questions were scenario STAR based. Some samples
    - Describe a time you were innovative
    - Describe a time you disagreed with a supervisor
    - Describe a time you had to disappoint peers
    - Describe a time you exhibited fast deployment of a solution or project
    - Describe a time you exhibited trial and error type of task execution
    - Describe a time you drove a project with minimal budget
    -
    The toughest aspect of the interview was the sheer amount of speaking and explaining you had to do. The senior leader (VP) was also present and he essentially went completely off script and asked many questions about the CV. Ultimately I think it came down to his opinion and it was clear he felt I required more Operations experience (why make me go through entire process !?!?)
    So so experience – after extensive researching the company in preparation I learned they do slave drive their folks – both line staff and management so beware of that aspect when considering accepting any potential offers.

    First interview was an automated interview. Questions appeared on computer screen and then it automatically recorded my answers. Did that twice and then had a phone interview. They wanted to fly me out to the location, but were not willing to pay for travel and on a student budget, I was not able to afford the trip. Set up the phone interview instead.

    Entretien de Construction Project Manager

    Expérience neutre

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris +4 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Amazon (New York, NY (États-Unis)) en septembre 2018.

    Entretien

    First interview was with HR over the phone. Pleasant, professional and engaging.
    Second interview was scheduled to be held over Chime with Hiring Manager. Unfortunately HM cancelled 2 minutes before scheduled start, with no effort from his side to reschedule. I followed up to arrange reschedule. The second interview was eventually conducted over the phone, but I got the impression the HM was just going through the motions.
    I again had to follow up on whether I progressed to the third interview, despite being told that they would get back to me.
    Apart from interaction with Recruitment staff (which was professional) the rest was disappointing.

    Entretien de Corporate Recruiter

    Difficulté moyenne

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Amazon (Seattle, WA (États-Unis)) en février 2017.

    Entretien

    Recently participated in 5 x 45 minute interviews, plus 3x phone interviews. (Total of 8 interviews). Passed all interviews with great feedback and received a verbal offer! However, the closing recruiter noticed I didn't meet degree requirements? I provided correct information on my application and resume, never provided misleading information regarding my degree. Spoke to 10 different individuals not one person verified or questioned the degree requirements. Verbal offer was withdrawn, they advise me to reapply in 12 + months but unfortunately could continue the offer process. If I didn't meet the basic qualifications then why interview my candidacy? I'm not sure if this was a true statement or if they decided to extended the offer to another candidate.

    Required to complete a very detailed questionnaire, had 2 phone interviews, was given a contract to mark-up as an exercise, and then was flown in for a number of interviews in one day. That was over a 3 month period. I did not get an offer, and over 3 months later, the job is still posted.
