I've got on site interview at Amazon coming up and was would like to know what to expect. I've not had an interview in a while. the last few jobs I've gotten have all been friends asking if I want to work with them. The Amazon recruiter sent me a crazy long email and basically told me to have a story for each Leadership Principles and to read the book "cracking to coding interview". Does this sound about right?

- BlackBerry c3por2d2It's a good name on a resume however working for them can be grueling. Leadership Principles are Bezos propaganda and you'll have to follow them if you are to survive at Amazon as they rate you not only on your performance but on your leadership (even if you aren't a leader)
- I never read that email from the recruiter. I figure if my natural mode of operation doesn't fit the culture then I don't want to work there anyway. I think the best thing you can do for behavioral questions is just be authentic. For the tech questions, practice leetcode.
- You need to show them that given a chance you will lick bezos ass nice and clean.
- Here is the advice I received from a friend in a high level position at AWS: Hi BestSalesGuy
I won't have time for a call but the best advice I can give:
1. Watch the 2016 Re-Invent Keynotes (3)
2. Learn the leadership principles
3. Over-prepare by really digging into the AWS services
Best of luck on it.
