Rejected by Amazon for not fighting with manager!?
Just got my rejection from Amazon. Recruiter refuses to share feedback details on the on-site but hinted that i did great on the coding and design. Ended the call saying that Amazon has certain leadership principles that it evaluates everyone on.
What is that supposed to mean?
(My interviews all had 15 minutes of questions on my past experience. Coding was LC medium and I managed to get mostly workable solutions. The only controversial questions I had to answer was have you fought with your manager and do you regret any decision in the past. I said no to both. In my case I have never ever fought with my manager and could not recollect any technical decision that I regretted.)
Is that why I get knocked off? For not fighting with my manager?! I answered the questions as truthfully and humbly as possible.
Can the good folks at Amazon please shed some light on why someone gets knocked out on leadership principles?
