I applied to SDE at Amazon and am scheduled to do technical phone interview. They sent me an email instruction for coding assessment but waived it. What could be a reason for waiving coding assessment? Do more experienced candidates get coding assessment waived usually?

    Amazon recruitment can be disorganized.

    Few years ago I had a pH screen scheduled. But even before interview I got an email from a different team (hadn't even talked to them before) "congrats we want to bring u onsite". So I forwarded that email to the recruiter that I did talk to. She said it's fine. We will just schedule onsite. They bought ticket hotels everything and had 2 days of interviews with 2 teams. lol

    It’s a bit disorganized I guess. For me they sent a coding assessment, I cleared and then they kept leadership principles phone screen. For my friend, once he cleared the coding assessment he was called onsite directly. I thought it could be due to my performance on coding assessment, but later from my friends at Amazon, I learnt that’s not the case.

    They made me jump through the online and a phone screen. Be thankful you don't need to do that. 13 YOE.
