Amazon reject after on-site

May 20 11 Comments

I had an on-site for Amazon PM role at Seattle and the recruiter emailed “they rejected me for this position but the hiring team believe I have a place in Amazon and asked to apply for different positions if anything interests me.”

Does this mean I can be considered for a different position or do I need to wait for six months to apply again?

Any Amazonian’s advice on this will be great, if they consider for other positions can I get a referral too.

    This is called a reject and recycle. They think you hit the bar but not a good fit for the team you applied for. You should apply for a different team. Congrats on meeting the bar.

    Find other jobs you think are a good fit, apply on the website and email them directly to the recruiter.

      I got rejected for an SA role at AWS. Was encouraged to apply to other roles.

      Applied for the TAM role, within an hour the job status on showed as "no longer under consideration" hah - at least they were fast.

    Most likely that they like your leadership skills and it's possible that they consider you may be better fit for other roles - PM in different product, SDE, TPM etc.
    What's your background?

      That’s exactly she said, they like the leadership and skills. I applied for a PM role in operations. My background is in logistics and supply chain.

      Usually it's good to get in with the same field and switch to one you like within a year or two.

    You should ask your recruiter. Don't give up!
