Long story short, I got applied scientist offer from amazon. During the interview, the PE of the team explained that the evaluation for AS depends on the qualitative reviews from the team members. He's not aware of any forced stacked ranking for the evaluation. This contradicts with what I read in Blind. Is what the PE said true and forced ranking is done not in all amazon teams/groups?
He’s a liar. In our org AS get stack ranked under l8 just like everyone else.
