Amazon onsite

I am a new grad. I had amazon onsite.

There were 3 interviews, all of them are technical. All of interviewers asked some behavioral questions. I tried to give my best answers. All of coding questions were easy-medium. I aced coding questions.

I got rejection on the next day after onsite. I asked the reason from my recruiter. She gave me promise that she will give me call. But I didn’t receive a call from her. Why amazon recruiters like that?

    You have a sample size of one. Don’t generalize. After a few years in the industry you will see many amazon recruiters like this, then it will be fair for you to generalize.

    I recently attended Amazons training for interviews and they make it very very clear to NOT give feedback for interviews. So don’t expect one

      How interviewers evaluate candidates? Are leadership principles so so important?

      I am starting at Amazon in June. I can say after going through the interview process that the Leadership Principles (LP) are very important.

      There are a bunch of YouTube videos that help with this for Amazon. For me, I found the videos from Dan Croitor were very helpful to prepare me for the LP questions.

    Recruiters aren’t allowed to tell you rejection reasons so when you ask you’re guaranteed to find yourself in a situation similar to this. Some recruiters straight up tell you they aren’t at liberty to discuss, but most seem to just ghost

      If recruiter is saying like that after interview we are not giving feedback. I would say ok. But she wanted a call. Why she is lying?

      She said she would give you a call, not give you feedback. My recruiter told me explicitly that they never share feedback. So she probably was going to call you (not sure if she ever did) and tell you that she couldn't give direct feedback but maybe you did well enough to reapply in 6 months.

      Having said that, I'm surprised she didn't stress to you the importance of the LPs. Having STAR structured stories relating to the LPs is about as important as your coding ability.

    For me, they mentioned they don’t provide feedback in onsite confirmation email.
