Amazon asking for expected compensation before onsiteFeb 11
I am 6 yrs exp. Currently working mts3 in NetApp. Amazon is asking me the expected compensation before onsite interview. How do I deflect/handle this.
- Oracle not_larrySay you want to talk to the team first as part of the on-site. You consider the offer as a total package, can’t come up with TC in a vacuum.
- I would not deflect it, instead I would give them a reasonable number that will work for you. Also, I will make sure to know the level for which you will be interviewing for. If your loop is for SDE2 from start, they will not consider you for SDE3 in any case.
- I have faced that before. I responded by telling them that I am very excited about the company and would love to talk to the team over the onsite interview. And that I am sure that they pay market level compensation to their engineers and I don’t foresee any issues when it comes to compensation. So having said that, I would love to interview and find out more about the role. This works like a charm every time for me.Feb 120

- Tableau heavenishAsk what's the range and median comp for your level. They probably won't tell you. This is all part of the game. Be polite, but wait till later. if by some bizarre circumstance they did actually tell you the range and the mean and the median then I'd consider telling them your comp expectations.
