Leaving amazon but change mind later?

Hi Amazon folks! I heard there’s a policy at Amazon which, if an individual left the company, he/she can still go back to Amazon within 6 months? Can someone confirm if such policy is true (or exists at Amazon)?

    It’s called being a boomerang and wouldn’t require an interview with a BR to be brought back at the same level within 6 months. It’s treated like an internal transfer. You also get to keep your vacation level.

    Any level change or outside 6 months will require a BR. If it’s outside a year it’s a full loop.

    All of this is dependent if you are rehire eligible.

      Yep. I have also seen people coming back within a year, L6 to L6, L7 to L7. Guess level jump at >=L6 is more difficult. But if left at L5, better come back as L6.

      Rehire eligible = if a company is willing to hire someone back if they leave. All companies will track if they are open to hiring someone back. Reasons to mark someone as not rehire eligible are bad performance, HR violations, going to a competitor and trying to poach people on the way out, etc.

      If someone quits after 2 months of joining. Would they be considered not rehire eligible?

      They are all dependent on the circumstances and what is decided by HR/management.

    it's true. Your phonetool remains the same within a year after leaving. Reasons for coming back? What was your level at Amazon?

    Also as far as I know your stock vesting schedule also remains the same if you join back within a year, had read this somewhere. Don't know the details.

    Is Microsoft that worse than Amazon that you're thinking of coming back?
