I have a phone interview for a procurement job with Amazon next week and I am wondering if anyone has helpful insight. This will be one of my first interviews in a while and my nerves are a wreck. Outside of researching the company, what else can I do to better prepare myself for this interview? Thank you in advance!
Be prepared with some real life examples of things you have done that highlight your abilities. So, rather than just being prepared to list your strengths, be able to demonstrate them. Rather than just saying "I'm a self-starter", for instance, talk about a time you took initiative, and how it benefitted your work. Create a cheat sheet for yourself so you can tap into any example quickly. Good luck!
Good luck!! If you Google Amazon Procurement Interview Questions Glassdoor website will be top of list. There is sample Q’s and other peoples experiences there that will help you. Knowing Amazon’s Principles and how you bring them to the work you do seems critical. You can find those on their website.
My other advice... just before do some physical movement to shake off your nerves. You’ve got this!!!
Congrats! Make sure you understand the leadership principles, you’ll be a interviewed based on how you’ve demonstrated each. Amazonians also like to dig into a particular story/question answer for details, asking only a few top-level questions rather than many.
please do full mock interviews, 4 hours if actual one woll be 4 hours. use whiteboard if they would, record yourself on an app if friend is not present, get questions from glassdoor, etc for that role and general ones like why this job? yourself in 5 years, strength and weakness.
1st: Don't be nervous, just be yourself.
2nd: See about networking on LinkedIn with some people in Amazon to understand the company and the position more.
3rd: I you would like I will do some mock interviews with you to get you read.
Let me know if I can help
