Amazon, one of the world's most innovative and fastest-growing companies, has a rigorous interview process known for its emphasis on the company's core Leadership Principles. The process typically begins with an initial phone screen by a recruiter to assess the candidate's fit for the role based on their skills and experience. Depending on the role, there may be one or more subsequent phone or video interviews focusing on technical skills or other job-specific competencies.
Following these, candidates are often invited to a series of onsite (or virtual) interviews, also known as the "loop" interviews. In this stage, they are interviewed by multiple Amazon employees who evaluate their fit with the company's 14 Leadership Principles, which include customer obsession, ownership, long-term thinking, and others. Candidates will be asked to provide detailed examples from their past experience that demonstrate these principles in action (and believe me, it is not an easy thing to come up with 10-15 different cases from your prev. work experiences!). Therefore, understanding and preparing to illustrate these principles is crucial to success in Amazon interviews.
Mock interviews do play a pivotal role in preparing for Amazon interviews. These practice interviews offer candidates a chance to practice responding to the kind of behavioral and situational questions Amazon is known to ask, especially those related to its Leadership Principles. Through mock interviews, candidates can rehearse their responses, receive feedback, and improve their delivery. They can also help candidates reduce anxiety by familiarizing them with the interview format and types of questions they may encounter. Especially important, mock interviews will also assist candidates in structuring their responses using the STAR method (Situation, Task, Action, Result), a format that Amazon encourages candidates to use when responding to behavioral questions. By investing time in mock interviews, candidates can go into the actual interview feeling more confident and well-prepared.
Hello! Please note that from time to time, I pause this service due to bandwidth constraints. If it is paused & not available right now, I highly suggest the Amazon Interview Guide service by Jacob, as it is one of the highest rated services for Amazon interview preparation.
