Hey everyone!

Just landed an interview for a QAE position at Amazon after a 1hour phone screen and wanted to know more about Amazon's salary structure and what would be a good starting point to ask for. I did some reading about it and it seem rather confusing.

Also, what should I expect from the interview (that may take 6 hours according to the email)? Anyone have experience that could give some input?

Any engineering interview at a major tech interview consists of usually about 3 technical interviews, 1-2 architectural interviews, and a personal interview. I know you’re excited, but if you are any good at writing code then stay away from QA, it’s very difficult to break out of that box once you’ve put yourself in it.

My current role is actually a QE role. My company just labels everyone as Software Developer(associate, Sr). I have more QE experience than I do SD actually.

Has anyone had a recruiter say “hey we’re deciding which candidates we are looking to move forward in the process, so I will be sure to share an update with you early next week!”


2 thoughts to this :
• If the hiring manager wanted to continue on with me, do you think I would have already been asked for my next availability, versus saying they’re waiting on other candidates
• if they didn’t want to continue with me, I’m sure I would have gotten a no,versus a “hang in there” type of message
