I have an interview with Amazon and they say to "dress comfortably" and that they are a "casual work environment." Should I just wear business casual? I assume a suit would be overdoing it based on that description

Or shirtless, whatever is more comfortable.

Dress shirt/khakis. Better to be too dressed up than not enough.

Amazon’s definition of comfortable and mine are probably very different😂 I’m sure they mean like jeans and a polo. My comfortable is shorts and a t-shirt or sweats and a hoodie depending on the weather😂 Also, Idk why but I prefer wearing slacks over jeans.

I'm 100% with you on the slacks > jeans. They're usually not as tight and they're a more comfortable fabric. Only time I ever wore jeans to the office was when I was going somewhere afterwards where it would be weird to be wearing slacks.

like

If you’re a male, do slacks with a button down, if the weather is chilly, add a sport coat. If you’re female, wear a suit skirt with blouse/button down or a nice sheath dress, can add a blazer if chilly

Hi fishes.

Last week I gave interview in Mindtree and got a call from HR on Friday saying that I have cleared my managerial round and that she'll be calling me for further discussion. She then setup a interview and told me that she's taking my photo for further process.
She told me that I should be receiving another call but haven't heard back from them.Also not able to get in touch with her.
What can I do in such situations.
Do they reject candidates after clearing cultural/managerial rounds??

AVOID AGODA AT ALL COSTS. First they only had interview times 7pm to 3am, none during working hours. Then come interview time, I wait 3+ minutes in no one shows up and then I get an automatic email saying the interview has been canceled. I also then get an auto email saying they moved on but the recruiter emails a few minutes later saying they are trying to reschedule. A waste of my time and money preparing, putting on makeup, outfit and contacts, and skipping dinner.

I recently had an interview with a very promising pre-IPO company in the AI/ML space for a SE leadership position. The interview feedback was better than I expected, but with a twist. They have already given the offer to someone else, but they still want to bring me on board and they asked me what I would like to do. I am in the process of gathering more info, but it is tempting to ask about pivoting into product management. What would you do in this situation?
