Amazon Recruiter Unable to find a team.

Gave an Amazon interview two weeks back, recruiter says the team who interviewed me wasn't a great match, which is fine. It's been 10 days since the recruiter is on a hunt for a "new" team, and is not able to find any. Are there really not that many openings?

3 yoe, had interviewed for Lab126

      Recruiter said I need not interview again and they were fine. Although I know I screwed up a round. They will extend an offer once there is a team available.

      Ah, well somebody will probably DM you. If it were for Seattle I'd see if you were a fit in my team

      Ah okay, would prefer Bay area, if nothing works out will DM you. Thanks!

    I received an offer at amazon. It took 1 month for my recruiter to find a team. Don’t worry, once you are in the candidate pipeline who passed the onsite interviews, it’s just a manner of time to find a team.

      I think once you passed the interviews, you are in good shape for team matches

    Nothing to worry. Same thing happened with me last week but got an offer from a team in 4-5 days. Keep patience it'll come soon

      Was this for Amazon? Did you try finding teams yourself?

    Can’t speak specifically to Amazon but have done this a lot at other companies. A candidate is borderline, so we try to place them with another team, but it’s difficult. Other teams are skeptical, reluctant to pick up the leftovers. It results in a no hire more than half the time.

      Makes sense, I half expected it to be a reject.

    Hi Op, I am in the same boat do you find a team eventually?

      OP
      Yeah I did, it took like a month. But I had made another decision so I did not talk to the team

    Don’t worry , if you are good enough they’ll go to any extend to find u a team, just remain supportive to the recruiter and keep searching for some team yourself too .
    I have a first hand experience of this .
