Hi all,

Glad to finally join everyone, really like the sense of community here.

I'm looking for a change of pace, and recently applied to both G and Amazon with no referrals ( if anyone can/willing to help with that, please let me know lol! ) for a non-engineering position.

For Amazon, I hear the Application Center statuses are really unreliable, I've got a apps there sitting in Submitted state and one Under Consideration, but it's been weeks.

For G, same story with apps submitted and nothing back for weeks.

Anyone have an idea what to expect from for non-engineering roles app process ?

Many thanks

    Applying online for big companies without a referral is basically useless from my experience.
    Find a reference or message a recruiter on LinkedIn. You will likely never hear anything back otherwise.

      For Amazon, referral didn’t even do anything for me. I had an ex-coworker refer me and heard nothing.

      Then a month later a recruiter cold messaged me on LinkedIn for a different organization / team than I original applied to.

      Recruiter is the way to go if you aren’t from FAANG imo.

      I got a call back for Google and Amazon through applying online. It might depend on the role and number of spots they are looking to fill...

      Google online app, no referral, worked for me as well. Maybe has to do with the fact that they do global recruiting process

      Amazon Product

      I think without referral it comes down to a combination of luck and having a quality resume. If you have valuable skills expressed well on your resume, you get attention quick. I've had next-day responses from Microsoft, Amazon, Google, and others without referral.

      Agree, it seems pretty mixed and a big factor is luck I imagine.

    Keep in mind that there are lots more people applying than there are roles to fill

      Very likely, also the fact it's non engineering could be even more limited

    However, I'm also looking at other places as well. FB/Uber/Apple and others as well for a BD/Partnerships role. Anyone that can help or have any good recommendations to look would be appreciated.
