Amazon Interview Process:

According to reviews written on Glassdoor, Amazon is a great place to work. 70% of past and current employees would recommend working at this company to a friend. If you're interested in getting a job with Amazon there are a few things you should know. The online application is comprised of questions to evaluate your personality, strengths, weaknesses, and why you are interested in working for Amazon. Answer these questions honestly and try to think about ways to turn your weaknesses into growth opportunities. Take your time and put some thought into these questions as this may be the best way to get you to the next step of the hiring process.

Once you submit your online application it can take weeks for them to reach out to you. It can be hard to sit around just waiting for that phone call, so instead be proactive. To ensure that your application is in the right hands it's always a good idea to follow up. Look for an email, or phone number, where you can verify that Amazon has your application. Reaching out to an employer shows them you are highly motivated and very interested in the position. Depending on the job you're applying for, applicants say the application process can take anywhere from a few days to a few months from start to finish. Some of the more technical positions describe a lengthy process that involves multiple phone screens and in-person interviews. Don't lose hope if you don't hear from them right away. Some Amazon applicants say that it took weeks before they heard anything.

To ensure you have the best chance at being hired at Amazon you should be prepared for the interviews. Glassdoor is a great place to find possible interview questions. Doing the research to find potential questions could be the difference during your interview. Imagine having unlimited, stress-free time to come up with an answer to a question that you weren't expecting. You should prepare answers to as many questions as you can find online. One question you can expect to be asked during an interview for Amazon is "Would you stand up to a Supervisor that was doing something against Amazon's corporate policy?" The obvious answer is yes, but thinking about a time where you actually enforced corporate policy would be a much better response. If you haven't had that specific experience, then try to compare it to another time which you demonstrated the importance of following corporate policy.

It can be challenging to gain employment at really good companies because of all the competition. If you're eager to find a job, you should always make sure you apply to more than one company. Remember to do your best and be prepared for each company you apply for. You never know when you're going to get that first phone interview.
