    I have been working at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very Dynamic role and truly customer obsessed.
    Everyday is day 1
    Exciting and challenging
    Good pay with RSUs
    Work with some really young and talented people

    Cons

    Long working hours
    No formal training in the Ops manager role
    HR policies for absence management need to be stronger due to poor HR software.

    Advice to Management

    Review working hours as the culture is to work really long hours and it comes as a expectation. Need to focus mix between home and work life... more focus towards internal customer obsession

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (London, England).

    Interview

    Leadership competency focused 45 min long phone interviews for round 1 and 2, followed by a day in house with 6/7 back to back interviews / tests.

    Long convoluted questions which they seem to have a specific answer they want to hear.

    Not very warm or professional. Confusing questions and jumped down my throat mid answer. Not somewhere I would want to work.
