Amazon Onsite Question - Do I have to redo the whole rotation again?

Last year I got a verbal offer that fell through for a position in a different team on amazon due to budgeting issues.

They never closed my application and have been waiting for months for position to open up again.

Asked recruiter about another role and she is setting up a call with me and the other team.

It's same level role, so I need to do whole Onsite again? Please tell me I don't 😩😩

    Why the hell are you going to Amazon. Unless you are sure you are joining a team you are 100% into, don't accept the offer. Transferring teams isn't as easy as other tech companies

      It’s pretty easy. Find a new team, mini loop, leave. Manager can’t block you.

    It will depend on how much the HM is willing to fight for you. Usually a BR blessing lasts 6 months. So if it has been 1 year you may have to do an onsite again. However if your LP feedback was good, you may do mini loop (HM, BR+ 1 more interviewer).

      Doesn’t hurt to ask your recruiter, but don’t be too aggressive. You may come up as scared of interviewing. If you have to do a full onsite, just go again and kick ass

      I would lobby for a mini loop if they want you to come in.

    Given internal employees now do full loops just to change teams I would say so

      If the receiving team asks for a full loop, run in the other direction.

    You will most likely have to do a full loop as it’s 6 months past, plus a different manager in different team, that changes things

    I was in a similar situation. I didn’t go through the full loop. I just had one interview with the hiring manager.

    I just had to do a call with an HM after my first loop froze like yours. I would definitely ask the recruiter about next steps. Also, if you can meet the HM in recruiting/networking events, that helps a good deal. The HM will feel better about pushing for a shorter loop if they have interacted with you.

    Given that it's another team at the very least the hiring manager will want to speak with you. It is the hiring manager's prerogative to put you through another loop with his team members to make sure there's a good fit.
