Have an on-site interview for a Solutions Architect at Amazon NYC

I'm scheduled to meet 5-6 people total.

No idea what level.

What is considered business casual in Amazon?

Banking is blazer, button down and slacks
Tech startups seem to be polo, and khakis

Where does Amazon fall?

To prepare, I've been reviewing the leadership principles, reading AWS white papers, reviewing the AWS offerings, and building proof of concepts in AWS free tier.

How else can I better prepare for the interview?

    I wore black jeans a plain T and a black blazer that I took off immediately during round 1 and never put back on. Got an offer; as long as you are presentable no one is gonna care they only care about your technical abilities. NYC May be a bit more dressy just due to environment but my #1 suggestion is be comfortable with what you wear; if you’re happy with how you look and comfortable no one is gonna ding you for what you wear

  • Tell me about a time when you didn’t know what clothes to wear and had to ask someone for help.

    If you can answer that question “utilising” 7 of the 14 LPs, you are good regardless of what you wear.

      Yeah I get it. In retrospect, wrong thing to focus on. Glad they're not as anal about it at Amazon as they are in other places.
