I randomly got an email from an Amazon recruiter weeks ago to an old email account. I never even talked to her on the phone. She only sends one sentence emails and takes forever to respond or advance to next step. I had to tell her twice I was looking in Bay Area only. She sent a link to a technical test without ever talking to me. (Just one sentence emails with lots of time in between.) I completed the test and she ghosts me for about a week. Then writes one sentence that they want an on-site. Then nothing. Then she wants to talk today. I give her times and nothing. This is real poor candidate experience. Is this common for Amazon recruiters? I have no confidence she even remembers that I’m looking for Bay Area only even though I emailed her this twice. Is this standard for amazon? I’ve never worked w them before.
i remember years ago i interviewed as new grad, other companies F, G, even Oracle, provide awesome lunch experience. but at Amazon, they group all candidates in a room and ordered some pizza hot and bottle water and asked everyone to share.
