Amazon won’t give any feedback about interviews, but will email you every week to get your feedback

I interviewed at Amazon few weeks back. Didn’t make it but no hard feelings and as recruiter wrote in her email, as per their policy they don’t share feedback. Ok that’s fine, though some feedback is always helpful to prepare for next. But since then every week I get an email to give feedback about their interview process etc. etc.
I find this so odd, you won’t give feedback but keep pinging me for my feedback, how nice.

    Yeah Amazon does this shit. I only give feedback if they do. They need to understand this is a two way street. Lyft gave proper feedback so I did too.

    Reply to the solicitation saying you will give feedback when they do.

    It’s an opportunity to complain/appreciate what you experienced. Cheap company treat’s candidates’ time cheap. They want to improve future candidates’ experience, but won’t do the same to the candidates by providing a good feedback.

      Good way to describe it lol. They certainly don't treat candidates time valuable.. I wonder if they ask those who are hired for feedback as well :)

    Amazon has got to be Qualtrics’ biggest customer. There is even a survey for feedback on your Pivot process!

      I wonder if they chose net promoter or CSAT as a measurement for that.

    They also require a 100% consensus by your interview panel
