The best advice I can give you is to know the Amazon Leadership Principles like the back of your hand and prepare a story / experience that aligns to demonstrating each one. Try not to use the same examples in multiple interviews. I used this approach and accepted an offer. You’ll find good, useful information online regarding the STAR method.

Have more stories than you think you need, because the questions won’t be as straightforward as “give me as example of leadership principle #4.” They are more “tell me about a time when…” questions that link to the principles.
