Amazon People Tech Team Hours

I have an offer from Amazon and am still debating it as I have offers with similar bases from other places. The main thing is still wondering how often I would be working long hours. Anyone have averages to throw around? I get projects and fires can often create the long hour days but wondering if it is because those or something else.

Thanks

      Can't speak for Seattle, was in Vancouver. My team was really good, lots of smart people and good technology. Our products are also used across Amazon which is nice, and is a critical part of the company. More importantly, the people were really nice which made the work day so much better. Again, this is Vancouver so Seattle may be different.

      Understood. Thanks for the info anyways. The image people give you from the outside makes it seem like a war zone anywhere in Amazon. So hearing the opposite from employees is super helpful.

    People tech is low traffic internal stuff. You'll be fine. I'm sure it is much better than Disney.
