Amazon’s application and interviewing process includes sending the applicant a link to their interview process and resources to aid preparation. If you didn’t receive one just go back to their career site and the info is found there. Definitely consider coming up with examples/stories of when you had to ‘really dig into the data’ to figure something out, and also some time you had to handle conflict across teams.

On a personal note, I see you’re from better.com. Hope you’ve been ok this past 6 months. I couldn’t imagine going through all that. Check out jobs at RSM and feel free to DM me if you see something interesting.

Good luck with your interview!

Oh I didn’t get that from them. Just got an email suggesting that I need to book a call. I got onto the resources page! Thanks!
It has been crazy for us really. Especially when you’re looped in on what’s next on the layoff stages. It can get scary quite quickly. Thank you though! I’ll reach out to you once I find something :)

I had a phone screen for a PM role at Amazon last week and it was an interesting format. I was asked to ask my questions I had about the role first. After that, I was then asked about 5-6 behavioral type questions. Here are the ones I had the opportunity to write down during and after the call: 1. Tell me about a time when you had to make a difficult decision. 2. Tell me about a time when you had the opportunity to influence a senior team member or a lead in your department to do something. 3. Tell me about a time when you became a subject matter expert in something. I was also asked to clarify a few instances in my answers.

I wasn't asked to go on camera in this call but they use a tool called Chime where video is an option.

Good luck!

Also, a few people kept mentioning the answers to feel data driven or large scale. Something that potentially impacted the entire organization. And how you rose from the ashes saving the day.

Wishing you the best! I hope the role is something you want and that you get it.

Update: My Job Application page suggested I was under consideration for the PM role but the recruiter mentioned on the phone screen that I’m being interviewed for the FA role. Is this something usual? I’m quite tensed at this point.

Hello, everyone!

I have an interview for a relatively new law firm early next week. However, upon doing more research about them, I noticed that their website has only a black-and-white website about only what the law firm is about.

My questions are:

1. Is this a red flag?

2. How do you guys prepare for interviews specifically with law firms that have little to some information on their website and Glassdoor?

Thank you so much in advance!

AE back to BDR??

With so many layoffs taking place. Would love to know the community’s thoughts on this move. I have 1.5 yrs closing experience, but seems that many roles I’m still unqualified for.

Is anyone else considering moving back to BDR?

Is salary + 1% equity a good offer from a bootstrapped startup?

That's the offer once I start full time, which would be when the product is launched. Currently I'm with them part time. I'm the 4th member, and the other 3 are founders/c-levels. Those 3 have the equity split between them currently. I'm pretty sure they will be raising $ post-launch.

I'm just wondering if I should ask for more than the 1%. There are $$$$ commitments from multiple partners who will become customers at launch.
