Does Amazon supports Location Change before joining for Fresh Grads?

Dec 6, 2019 6 Comments

Dear Amazonians and fellow Blinders
I have a query hoping to get some help. My spouse (Fresh Grad 2020) got an SDE-1 offer today from Amazon for Seattle, WA location. I wanted to hear any experiences or policies where Amazon supports location change. We are looking for Sunnyvale/San Jose location.

Answer for "TC or GTFO"

    If she got it for Seattle then she is offered a team likely based there. Remote SDE 1s are never a good idea, so the best way is for her to try negotiate changing to a team located on the Bay Area.

      Thanks for your response @coatl. Her joining is In August. So I doubt they would have finalized a team. You would know better. What I meant was whether her location/team can be changed to Sunnyvale/San Jose CA or not. I was not asking for Remote option.

      If she got an offer for Seattle, a team (at least an org) is likely already decided. There are relatively few teams that have presence in bay area, so speaking now about the change is recommended.

    • My new grad offer explicitly says that they don't accommodate location requests after the offer is made (you have to internally transfer after working for some time)

    That's crap comp for the location. The TL;DR answer for you is that your spouse got handed a bag of crap.

      Was that your best answer? Lol!! you need some serious attention bro. What was your pay out of college?

      @OP. I would suggest replying to University Recruitment team (or whatever they call) and ask for it beforehand. I know a couple of cases where they are flexible when your significant other is involved. Worths a try.
