Just finished a phone interview with an amazon recruiter where we mostly talked about my projects. He did ask me some programming questions. It all went really well.
Two things he said that felt weird to me:
1. They are not gonna need a Technical Phone interview and instead will "just send a programming test".
2. On mentioning that I would need a senior role he mentioned that makes sense, he will be in touch and offered to coach/practice interviews
Whats the takeaway here?
1. Aren't phone interviews with a person better than hammering on a online assessment?
2. Since when do recruiter do coaching for the roles?

Recruiters always coach before an onsite interview. It's called a prep call.
