    I did it and no one who interviewed me actually read it. Don't sweat about it too much.

      Incorrect. It is a screen. Do it poorly and there will be no onsite

      Wow. Now I’m nervous. I received a hold-the-date but I guess it doesn’t mean a confirmed onsite.

      Bullshit. I got the on-site date before the written test. They asked me to fill it a day before so we can discuss it during the interview. Never happened.
      Don't worry and don't spend too much time on it.

      Ok, I should rephrase— it is not a screen perse, but it is reviewed. Either before on-site or at debrief time. Amazon won’t hire someone who can’t write. But you’re not graded either

    Seeing whether you can write and are able to articulate things well. As an SDM, you will be doing a lot of writing.

    Yea same experience. No one even read my writing sample. Also I had my onsite interview date confirmed before sending in the writing sample. Seems like more of a formality
