I passed the SDM interview end of July and still waiting for Amazon to find a team for me. Does it usually take this long for recruiters to find a team?

    No, I had multiple teams to choose from within a day of hearing it was a pass

      It’s weird when hiring managers are uninterested. What geography are you seeking (there was something about HQ2)?

      Amazon loops are standardized across the company. If they’re inclined one place, the data is there for another.

      Sounds odd, but might be good to make a ranked list of three open reqs on amazon.jobs that you think would be interested in. Suggest some spots to your current recruiter, think it might lubricate the process. And of course, there should be tons of SDM openings to choose from.

      I interviewed in Seattle so the recruiter is currently looking for openings in Seattle. The hiring manager I spoke with mentioned about HQ2 since I am currently located close to the HQ2

      You can always make the process faster by finding open reqs on jobs.amazon.com and just let them know where you want to go

      +1 for amazon.jobs. Recruiting takes expressed candidate preference very seriously.

      If Seattle is your preference, there are tons of openings there (and you get the benefits of the mothership). Know little about HQ2, but my guess is it’s still coming online. There’s a couple AWS engineering offices by Dulles airport though which have good openings as well.

      The only reason for me to even think about HQ1 or HQ2 is because the recruiting team is taking time to find me an opening.

      I will research more on amazon jobs and let my recruiter know. Thanks for the suggestions, appreciate it 👍🏻

      Yup. System design, behavioral & management. Behavioral and management are based on Amazons Leadership principles
