I had phone interview for Amazon PM and pretty much bombed it. Can I still apply to Amazon or do I need to wait couple months before applying?

      Recycled means you (your resume) will still be considered almost immediately for any other position you apply or if HR/hiring manager is interested in you. If the resume is not recycled then you have to wait for 6 months. Ask you theHR and they should know.

      Turns out that a “do not recycle” rating from a phone screen does not actually prevent a candidate from being recycled; the loop is the only thing that triggers actually not being recycled. I think this is stupid. 2 separate times in the last 2 months my team has phone screened awful candidates who had several “hard no” decision from other teams’ phone screens.

    Amazon will recycle your resume (or not) if they felt you met the bar but would be better for another group

    Was it only behavioral questions? Did you just not have stories prepared?

    I did a phone screen the other day. about 60 minutes of tech questions then 30 minutes of 3 or 4 behavioral questions. I had no relevant story for one of the questions and struggled through it. Waiting to hear feedback, hopefully early next week.

    If you’ve performed well in aspects that matter for other teams you still have a chance to get referred to other teams. Talking from my own experience.
