I know what an Instock Manager is suposed to do... the thing that bugs me is the "Media business" part of the role...

Any info would be much appreciated

Would you really want to consider a role that just invites for an interview without you applying? Seems desperate.

Former Amazon here. What’s your current pay? I can tell you if they can match. Also depends what level they bring you in

Recruiter from Amazon reached out for a phone screen for a L7 role st Amazon - Principal Product Manager, Technical. I'm a first year M and have been in consulting mostly. I do have the technical expertise the role requires but no product management experience per se. Think L7 at Amazon for me is a reach. My concern is if I interview and fail, I will be barred from interviewing from another role for 6 to 12 months. Should I give it a shot or save my chance for something more realistic (e.g. L6)?
