Women: What do you wear to work @ Amazon?

I accepted my job offer at amazon. During the interview I wore jeans, blazer, and heels. What should I wear as a L6 PM working with Finance and Accounting.

Are jeans and t shirts really ok? Or should I just put blazers over my t shirts for a more casual look. I definitely want to move up and be taken seriously. I currently wear a suit everyday to the office so this is a new culture for me.

Thoughts?

    Dark jeans and a top is fine, I wouldn’t wear a t shirt though.

      Because if you want respect from your peers you must respect yourself.

      I have and it’s horrible. Not sure why the men dress so poorly.

      Here are girls bad mouthing men. We don't use the same jeans for 6 month. That's ridiculous. We wash our jeans and tshirt in our monthly body shower. No need to take clothes off and it's much faster and convenient.

    • Amazon bezoscrist
      Nope, just employees. We like bananas because they look like peccy's smile, I think...

      @Stenvenjobs what if you're first to the toilet, will the seat be warm?
      Apr 28
    • Maybe, but will you get banana at night too beside the office?

    It’s Seattle. You can even dress like a homeless person, as long as you don’t smell bad.

    Check out Nordstrom from some premium beggar style jeans, etc

      See, sexism in play. You should prefer gender-neutral "TC or GTFO" :)

  • All the people saying no one cares how you dress — is that in Finance and Accounting as well? Because that’s a major “traditional” field as compared with software.

    Maybe some high-level directors are old-fashioned and do look at the way you dress. They are the ones deciding your promotion. I’d err on the side of caution until you have evidence to the contrary.

      The only people at MSFT who dress differently are those in Sales.

    • I’d imagine it’s similar for Amazon. But again, this is female dress we’re talking about — people have a lot of hidden or subconscious biases with regards to this sort of thing. 🤷‍♂️

    Jeans with boots, heeled sandals or trendy lowtop white sneakers, and a nice shirt. Don't wear t-shirts.

    Do you remember what interviewers were wearing during your on-site? That's a good place to start. If your start date is not in the next few days, you can set up a lunch with your future team and see how they show up.

      I have this dumb friend that always says really outlandish stuff and I used to believe her. She always used to say that only lesbians wear Birkenstocks. So it has always stuck with me and I say it sarcastically. It took me a while to figure out she was completely full of shit about everything

      For real is jeans and t shirts ok...or do women wear something dressier. I’m used to wearing suits but don’t have much in between. I work out a lot so when not in suits, I usually wear Dri fit shirts and jeans so I can change easily for the gym.

      I would think that would be ok. Nobody really dressed nicely at Amazon, just like at every other company I worked at.

    For women, I find it hard to dress in between. Currently I wear suits which obviously is way too much at amazon. But all I have other then that is jeans and t shirts lol
