      OP
      The gist of it was i was asked on oop/design pattern and i proposed 2 alternatives (not sure if it was correct tbh) then i asked "do you follow the best practices of design patterns and use reference implentation in your everyday job".. interviewer suddenly smiles after hearing this question.. and gives a politically correct answer ..

      Tbh , u cannot judge based on 1 interviewer . Most probably Ull end up in other team .
      If you are young and want to learn as quickly as possible , Amazon is the plac e for you. If you are looking for wlb, then u just dodged a bullet

    If you have no hard feelings then that’s good but amazon has 500,000 employees. Judging it based off one employee seems shortsighted.

    Shit like that happens in all FANG. Hence you need some luck to get into a company. This one interviewer at fng( I wont mention who) was so moronic he didnt even understand the question he was asking ie inputs/toutputs. There are bad interviewers in every company. Make sure you highlight that in interview survey.

    Well done. If you want I can help you by putting you in the permanent non-hirable list. This way you will never get any call from amazon recruiters for the rest of your life. But may be you are in it already given that you bombed it.

    I did the same a while back. Felt that it was all OK said and done, and given the no feedback policy and abrupt end to it all I won’t be reapplying there.

      I agree - worse thing is to not get feedback , because you don’t know what is in the mind of interviewer
