So i have been reading a lot in here that many people did onsite interview and the next day the recruiter already gave a feedback.

1. Does this mean the company only interview 1 candidate only?
2. Is the company hiring because the position is open or they just want to get bright talents?

If recruiters/hiring manager here know about this info, i would love to hear. I am just curious. Less trolling please..

    At Amazon it's usually one candidate per day for a panel of interviewers, unless it's a hiring event/blitz.
    Big companies always have open positions so even if the one you interviewed for gets filled, there are many other open positions, probably even in a sister team. It's binary result: either you pass or not. If you pass you will get an offer 99%, even if there are other candidates that passed for the same position.

    Some other big companies are different. Eg. Microsoft interviews for a position. If you get an offer a wait to long to accept it, you need to reinterview for another position

      It depends. If your offer is for Azure and you want to interview for Windows group, then full loop .

      If you want to join another Azure group, then should just be a manager interview.

      And if you have to keep doing it, it’s infinite loop

      @shammer: So that means if you are doing well on an interview, you will most likely get an offer?

      If you do well in interviews at Amazon you will get an offer. Whether you actually did well might differ from how you feel you did though. A lot of the evaluation is based on leadership principles and it's hard to guess for candidates how well they did on those

      @shammer... you will get an offer but not necessarily in the original position

    1. As for company doing just one a day, that's a simple no. There's so many interviews here every day that most buildings have at least 2 rooms labeled as interview rooms only.
    2. Both
