    business attire
    Answered 3 years ago
    Wear what feels comfortable. A suit will look odd. Business casual is a reasonable standard, although many are just casual.

  • How would you compare interviewing at Amazon to other places you've interviewed?
    There are no initial interviews for entry level CS work, they just hire you and then spend approx 90 days determining if you're a good fit or not. If you are interviewing for another internal role, they only interview you if it's considered to be a promotion. At that point, interviews get extremely high pressure, and I guess as a tradition (?) they put way too much emphasis on how someone interviews, vs their relevant experience or track record. I watched a lot lof extremely qualified candidates get passed over for roles simply because the interviewer didn't like their answers or interview style, or they didn't interview in the company's "quirky" specific style. There is a lot of bias that goes around as well, and if you have any kind of negative or perceived negative interactions with anyone that the interviewer may know or work with, they WILL hear about it, and it WILL affect your chances of getting the job.

    Excellent, as it sorts out the best amongst the hundreds of people who come to give interview and are unfortunately helpless.
    Answered 2 years ago
    Entry level positions do not usually require an interview. You essentially fill out paperwork do a drug test on a background check.

    It wasn’t as intimidating
    Answered 3 years ago
    It’s exhausting and very long, but funny enough, when I go to other companies I leave the 1-2hr interview thinking “how on earth will these people know if they want to hire me?” Amazon really looks at and talks to you about your work.
