Amazon US hiring from India

Nov 12, 2019 18 Comments

Hi, I'm thinking of applying at Amazon for a role based in US. I'm currently working in a very relevant role at a top FMCG company in India. Are there any chances of getting a call or it's impossible given the visa issues and all.

    Forget about it. Amazon has enough internal candidates within India who are more than willing to apply to the US. Add to that L1B is an easier visa compared to H1B and no hiring manager would be willing to go through so much trouble.

    Unless of course you work in a very niche field.

    Some amazon roles approve international relocation. Usually for more senior roles as those are easier to sponsor. Which roles are you considering?

      I recommend trying for Canada, where you can get permanent residency and citizenship relatively fast. US is unfortunately extremely hard for India-born people in terms of getting permanent residency due to per-country caps, unless you get married to a US citizen.

    Also, am I at any disadvantage compared to the Indian candidates studying in US and applying at Amazon? We'll both be at the same level right? From the visa perspective. Pls clear

    Yes that's my concern, L1B would be much easier and many Indians working at Amazon here would want to shift. Thanks.
