Received interest from an Amazon recruiter for an SDM (S/w Development Manager) role. Any tips on approaching interview Qs unique to Amazon? Sure shot Qs to expect/ watch out for..?
Also, how long does the interview process generally take? how many rounds, on what topic(s)?
Write down all 10 of the Leadership Principle (just google them)...
Review them and come up with an annecodate from your past experience that showcases how you display that principle. You can do one annecodote that covers more than one principle - for example, a time when you thought big, had a bias for action, and accomplished somethung frugally.
Structure each of your annecodotes in the STAR format (Google it). Memorize each of your annecdotes and reherse reciting them out loud so they sound confident and natural.
When the interviewer brings up a question that you think is related to a principle, tell your annecdote. You want this to come off as natural and prepared as opposed to rehersed and robotic.
FYI, I did all of this in a word doc just like I was studying for a test. Amazon is very specific about how they interview. If you're not prepared for it, it'll be off-putting. If you are though, you'll fucking ace it and impress everyone.
