I thought I was being smart by taking a part time weekend role at an Amazon fulfillment center so I can have a better chance of landing an interview for a program manager role as well as the ability to apply to internal positions. Turns out I blacklisted myself from high paying jobs at amazon. But it’s fine, I got to experience how they treat their lowest level employees and all of their operational gaps and opportunities. Not a company I’d want to work for anymore.

I’m sure you weren’t blacklisted but why would you think working as a warehouse worker would help you become a program manager?

Explain this blacklisting for higher jobs? That's hella wierd.

How Amazon treats their working class workers is literally all over the news. Pretty sure they fought hard against them unionizing despite extremely harsh conditions.

We do things like this when we've become desperate but don't know it. I actually thought of taking a fulfillment role at amazon just yesterday for the same reason! 😆🙈

Pick your head up. There are ways to apply, interview and prepare for the whole amazon process. There are amazon job coaches out there that can show you. PM me and I can share more.

If you care, I think you should leave that fulfillment job ASAP so it doesn't dampen your resume and get a job your level anywhere.

My thoughts.

I dont think you're "black listed" but HM are going to have tier 1 bias when they look at your resume (or look you up in internal tools) and see temp work. It's pretty uncommon to move from tier 1 or 2 to level 6. Especially with limited internal experience. Like other have recommended, you're better off leaving the temp role and applying externally. Good luck!

Applied for a role internally and feedback from 1st round interview was positive. However, I was told there’s strong external competition who have more experience in the field and likely to get the job. Hiring manager told me to consider a different open role in the team where I’d be a much better fit. The other role isn’t exactly what I was hoping for but could be a foot in the door. Has anyone had similar experiences? I don’t know whether to abandon this completely or remain persistent. Thx!

Not forcing my beliefs on anyone, just having a private moment with God. Give it a try. It is powerful.
