Got Amazon offer - 🤔Google reinterview after cool off

Aug 22 15 Comments

Hi guys,

I got onsite rejection from Google HQ in April. Recruiter told me to reach her out after 6months.

it’s been almost 5 months. Should I reach her out? or re-apply via referral?

I just got an offer from AMAZON SDE I @ HQ if that’s a small factor to get reinterviewed?

Thanks,

TC: 150k
YOE: 1.5

    You can always quit your Amazon job.

      You mean if I start working at amazon for couple months then interview at google? Do you think google will judge me?

      I just had a recruiter from Amazon contact me asking if I would quit Snap and join Amazon if they sweetened their offer, just to give you some context. This is after I turned them down several months ago. Recruiters want to get you in the door.

      But I think from snap to amazon is a downgrade. But amazon to google is an upgrade? So different story I think

      The point is don't feel bad about it if you leave after a couple months.

    Google’s process takes a long time. Especially with the low openings for L3 which is where you’ll be slotted at.

    I would join Amazon and then quit it I get the Google offer. Because of how their comp is structured, you won’t be paying anything if you quit midway.

    Google’s offer is also valid for a year, so if you really don’t want to burn bridges you can extend your stay at Amazon.

      Sounds good.
      I have about 20 months YOE. Is it L3, right? What’s the average TC for this level?

      Yeah L3 is right.

      Hard to get L4 under 4 yoe unless you’re coming as E4 from Fb or have similar offers.

      Average L3 is around 185k IIRC

      185k == 150k at amazon. But better resume with google 😁
