I’ve seen a lot of people mention leadership principles are a huge thing at Amazon. Can someone give an example of a question they’d ask during an interview that has to do with one of these principles?

    Tell me about a time where you did X. Where X is some situation that fits an Amazon LP.

    Example: insist on the highest standards

    Question: Tell me about a time when you were not satisfied with the status quo. What did you do to change it? Were you successful?

    Be specific. Focus on what you did not “we”.

    To do well here you need to actually have solid experiences or data points that show you raised the bar. If you never raised the bar in this way in your life, make sure you ace the coding questions.

      OP
      Coding questions in a TPM initial 1 hour phone interview? Or is that more of an on-site type deal?

      Your recruiter would know best how the loop is structured. T in the TPM is for technical so there should be some technical loop at least. Might be system design instead of coding.

      Behavioral questions are critical to Amazon interviews. My friends did not clear the L4 SDE interview at Amazon but easily passed the L4 SWE interview at Facebook. He told me Leetcode was far less important in Amazon than in Facebook.

      Looks like I am the only one whose LP interview was not really related to LPs. Director or some exec came with an engineer who was shadowing but he hijacked the entire interview and kept asking technical android questions in depth. I was prepared more for LP at that point based on recruiters advice. Director apologized at the end since entire interview went beyond the track. Lol.
