Hi, I have a phone interview scheduled with Amazon. The role is for Instock Manager in Seattle. I'm speaking with a few different divisions. Looking for tips to help me through the interviews. How can I best prepare and what types of questions can I expect? This is my first time interviewing with a retailer that is heavily involved in tech and I want to know if the interview style is different from the ones held by traditional retailers.

    What that being said, best of luck πŸ˜‰

    Prepare 6-7 very strong stories with clear impact for the leadership principles. Ideally each story can cover 2-3 LPs. They might have some mini case questions related to retail business or instock but nothing crazily difficult. e.g. how do you evaluate an end of life discounted buy from a vendor.

    If you are a naturally aggressive person, have strong character, good at debation or super smart then working at Amazon will be fun. Otherwise it is quite tiring.
