I am preparing for my second phone screen for a senior PM position @Amazon. The recruiter told me that it's about product strategy and design interview. What can I expect for this round? Is it a mix of LPs question and strategy questions or just strategy questions? Please suggest. Thank you! Amazon

I'm pretty sure Amazon heavily weights behavioral questions in their PM interviews. But they do have some strategy questions too

Not much help other than there are a lot of interview guide resources online for FAANG. For product design, there is a specific framework you need to use.

Yeah I got all the FAANG related resources, but really confused with Amazon specific questions. All resources point to Amazon LP, but not sure what to expect for this round and how to prepare.

Be prepared to walk through product design and prioritization exercises. And be ready to be detailed - not just “I’d do market sizing”. Okay, tell me tangibly an action plan and how you’d execute on it, etc

How true is that/how risky it is to join PDM?(considering I am in US on H1B) 2 . How much time it takes to get first project? I am confused because it’s really better salary than what I make.
