    I worked at Amazon Lab126 full-time

    Pros

    You work with some very smart people who genuinely care a lot about the product, the pay is good, and even though some rules sound fairly strict (smart casual dress code for example), if you get your job done, people don't care. Hackathons were also a great chance to experiment with the Kindle.

    Cons

    Very political - there were tensions within my group, and to get things done you really had to get people on your side on the exec level. Often needed to get approval before I could go ahead and do things.

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ban Phone Savang (Laos)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Amazon Lab126 (Ban Phone Savang (Laos)).

    Interview

    Interview scheduling started nice , got an email with access to the scheduling system where I was required to input 3 slot minimum .
    After providing these slots I have waited for a response but it never came.
    Tried reaching out to the POC from recruiting team with NO RESPONSE!! After the fifth e mail someone else got back to me asking for more slots .
    I’ve provided more slots , this tome got a confirmation mail !! But when the interview schedule arrived the interviewer was nowhere to be found :)
    No response from recruitment team either .
    Another week went by and someone contact me with some lame excuse.
    Scheduled again !! Yeah Amazon !!

    The interview was scheduled again, this time it actually started ( finally ) only that the interviewer wasn’t the hiring manager asking irrelevant questions , couldn’t provide ANY insight about the position.
    The interviewing skills were limited at best, I don’t want to talk about bad communication system and line breaking up.
