Hi Amazonian! What should I expect or ask during my culture chat session prior to the final round of interview? I opt in because it sounded interesting. Amazon
Sharing incident happened today with Capgemini . I was told 25% on my fixed at the start by some consultancy after bargaining.Took their interviews, and now this HR guy can't even match what I am getting now. What a joke ! Lesson learnt : Have a salary expectation convo with the company HR before attending interview. And if possible avoid consultancy route.
Had an interview with KPMG on monday night . It was the managerial round. It went well. The hr contacted me saying it will take a couple of days on Tuesday. Haven't yet recieved any news from the HR. What should i deduce?
I started a new job in July 2021 was on 6 months probation and unfortunately suffered from two family losses within that time. This drastically impacted my performance as I was one of the key people in planning the funeral arrangements. My probation was extended by 3 months and eventually I was let go. It was devastating. After 4 weeks of applications and interviews, Today I accepted a new job earning DOUBLE the salary. Sometimes we mistake PAIN for POSITIONING. God is good!!!
Just found out who is interviewing me tomorrow, and one of them is the CEO. Never had a CEO interview me before. Anything extra I should be prepping for? This is a 1k+ person agency, not a small shop.
What schools could I target? -3.72 UG engineering degree from school ranked 25 for my major (should I rank by major, engineering school, or university?). -170 quant, 162 verbal, 5 writing (idk if they care about that) GRE (~760 conversion to GMAT) -2 YOE now but applying next summer or the year after. Currently at big 4 for govt clients and probably average recs from non MBAs
I’m interviewing for a dream job at Under Armour. I may have to do a presentation on one of their core competencies. Does anyone have any info on what these are? I was introduced to questions about them during the interview but want to get it right!
Does anyone have experience working at a small company? I was furloughed and I’m looking for other opportunities, and I’ve had a few interviews/chats with the Co-founder of this real estate company...
Had a second round interview yesterday and have a good feeling about it as the interviewer mentioned it would be a good fit. How long have people had to wait to hear back after the final interview? I think the waiting aspect of this process is the worst part 😞
Interviewed for Deloitte on Monday and Tuesday. Interviews went really really really well. Still no call back......what’s going on?
I’ve been submitting applications because my company has been doing layoffs and pay cuts. I was informed yesterday that they will be doing additional pay cuts starting next week. First my bonus was cut by 60% and now they have mentioned they are going to cancel it altogether. When interviewing for new positions how should I explain why I’m looking for a new job even though I still (at least currently) have a job, just major pay cuts?
Just withdrew right before my interviews with Amazon and Microsoft this week. Still remember the good old days when I used to worship em and ask everyone for a referral but now just happy with non-FAANG industry exit, significant bump and amazing WLF.

What are some good questions you like to ask during interviews, once you’ve gotten past the gatekeepers?
I got referred to a role at EY and got a message from a recruiter with instructions to schedule an “on demand” interview. Has anyone heard of or done this?? Apparently I schedule a time convenient for me and it will be video recorded. The screen will pop up questions and I’ll have 30 secs to think of a response up to 3 mins long then record it. I can review my response and re-record once if needed. This seems really strange and awkward. No indication of how many questions.
Anybody get a GSB interview invite and assigned an interviewer already? Wondering if we have 7 days in which to have the interview or 7 days in which to settle on a date?
Ah now it did.

What’s your best nontraditional “Somebody I know made a fortune doing blank” story (I.e. reselling tickets, only fans, nail salons)
Toxic workplace phrases and what they really mean: “Fast paced environment” = no time off and chaos “Need a self-starter” = no training but we still expect results “Must wear multiple hats” = understaffed and underpaid for amount of work “We’re like a family” = no raises
Seattle 🐠- for $5,000 per month rent, would you prefer to live in Bellevue or Green Lake area or other “true” Seattle neighborhood? Considering good schools and walkable to parks and trails.
Thinking out loud: I have an MBA, I’m fluent in two languages, I went through war and was almost kidnapped.. I will NOT let this mean manager make me cry today. 💆♀️
I’m worried my boss knows I keep breaking into their house. Most weekday evenings my boss is out dining with clients, so like any other junior employee I take that time to enter their home and go through their stuff. Last week my boss found my ID card in their bathtub (I needed a quick wash while there). While I’m not doing anything technically wrong, I don’t want to create friction at work. Any advice?
Anyone get their backs/neck adjusted with a chiropractor? Highly recommend or no? Never gotten myself adjusted but I feel like I need a real good one, my neck and lower back feels tight and could use a little TLC.
I haven’t paid taxes in 3 years, I’m going to jail. Can anyone recommend their accountant?
Whose pro Russia? Any Russians here?

I'm invited to a client charity tennis match. I'll be playing with partners that are really good and into tennis.. Problem is, I don't know a lick of tennis. Should I bow out now or learn in 2 weeks..
Listen gang…I’m not trying to gloat, but I just received a 4.4 percent raise for my promotion that I worked two long, hard years for. But don’t worry my people. Your time will come eventually too! 🤣😆😒🙄
I am a 26 male wanting to switch careers entirely - going down to a base of around 50K. One fear I have is that I won’t be able to find an SO and be able to settle down in the next 5 years due to my salary decrease. I know my self-worth isn’t dictated by my job or salary but not everyone shares that opinion, even those that are good people. Thoughts?
Seeing all these "great place to work" awards for my former employer completely undermines my perception of those awards. I'm actually starting to wonder how many places run for awards like this to paper over their broken culture.
Hot take, Amazon is the big4 of FAANG. Toxic work culture long hours without the high pay to make up for it.
