Amazon Case Study Questions And Answers

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amazon (Cincinnati, OH) in June 2017.

Interview

I got called by a recruiter and I was not even looking. I think they found me on Linked-In. The whole process seemed very one sided as there was very little information given as to where the open positions were ahead of time. To learn a little more about it, I decided to work towards getting the phone interview by completing all their required items online. The phone interview and interviewer seemed to be in a rush and did not seem interested in listening. They seemed to be just "going through the motions" of the process. I felt my final questions were not answered., specifically around job locations. There also seemed to be a major arrogance about themselves. As a 20 plus year professional in the Continuous Improvement field, and with my credentials as a certified Black Belt, they ended up sending me a decline E-mail stating that I needed to work on building my experience. I found this to be laughable as I know my experience and skill sets in manufacturing, management, and retail far exceeded the Sr. Ops Leader who was interviewing me.
