Would one be able to push back the date on an exploding offer from amazon? Got an initial offer with numbers, via email, but no official document. Recruiter just mentioned there was an expiration date, that was never mentioned in writing. What’s the success rate in being able to push back the deciding date by?
Also, how’s the work environment in NYC? The initially 10 vacation days seems pretty rough...
- Facebook / QAWPBL01I had an exploding offer from amazon. The recruiter said it will expire within 48 hrs from when it was received. I told her not to give me an offer yet as i have interviews with other companies. After 4 days or so she verbally gave me an offer and said it’s no longer an exploding offer. It’s just a recruiting tactic from my experience.
- What’s an exploding offer? Does it blow up when you read it or merely inflate?
- Amazon KHCr70Sounds like recruiter BS to me lol. If they are willing to pay you X today, they'll be willing to pay you X next week
- Amazon / MgmtYoYesYoumoreMost managers I've seen at Amazon give a lot of 'comp' days. Essentially extra vacation days for working hard. I've also had managers not require me to put in any hours when taking days off. The vacation policy isn't that bad. I'm sitting on the maxed banked possible right now (160 hours) and I have no plan to put them in when I take days off
- My manager was cool with me using sick days as vacation, for "mental health". Vacation jumps to 15 days after a year, and you also get some use it or lose it personal days, which I think you start off with 3.
Numbers might change as you are in NYC.
