      Thank you . Can you also tell me about the compensation to expect, like base, bonus and stock!
      I am having 6 years of experience and I believe it is level 6 position.

      You’ll get an offer for around $140 base with stock on top. Note: most people don’t make it to the first vesting period. (>70%) So, the stock may as well be pretend money.

      Why not say we? Pretty much everything is a team effort.

      The interviewers will try to steer you back on course by asking, “Can you tell us what your role was specifically?” If you keep saying “We”, it’ll likely be a pass.

      Nothing at Amazon is a team effort.

      I’m interviewing with design managers at amazon, that’s good to know I guess.

      There’s not really... Answer these questions: What was the problem you discovered? How did you discover it? What did you deliver? What was the outcome?

      You’ll be golden.

      Thanks. Will there be any design exercises in one-one interviews? If so, what kind !?

      You might get a whiteboard. Stay focused on the customer.

    Sounds like the standard portfolio presentation you give anywhere else

    Just explain your project, the problem, constraints, etc, make sure to point out what you explicitly did if it was on a team

    Happy to look at your deck. Study up on the Leadership Principles and point to examples where you can.

    Reviewers are looking for a few key things:
    - What results did you deliver personally?
    - Do you have examples of navigating process on your own?
    - Did you set goals early on? / What were the outcomes?
    - What do you do when you disagree?

    Someone might be assigned to give you a whiteboard exercise, in which case, they’ll talk about the customer problem you’re solving, and ask you to walk through your approach/design on a whiteboard.
