I have been working at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)
The best tech toy box in the entire world. Seriously. I’m doing things that were only dreams five years ago before morning tea. Every day is something new, another challenge, something new to learn, another customer problem to solve. I know that I make a difference every day, and I have a darn good time doing it. Our leadership principles aren’t just a plaque on the door - they’re intertwined in everything we do. Success is celebrated, failures are learned from, and we challenge each other to do better, every day.
“Self service” culture can be challenging sometimes. Documentation is hard to find and all over the place. Microclimates of information and process are drastically different around the globe (more than just localisation).

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Auckland, Auckland (New Zealand)) in November 2019.
I applied through Linkedin, was contacted by a recruiter who got the position I was applying for wrong and wasn't responsive to my questions. Then I got handed over to another recruiter who again who got the position wrong. Anyway moving on to the interview. The interviewer was interesting as most of the areas I mentioned I don't know much about was all I was quizzed on. I mentioned I don't have experience in web application design/development to the recruiter who probably never bothered passing my feedback to the interviewer. Anyway, after trying to answer questions on a topic I had no clue about and wasting my time I started asking the interviewer questions. The interviewer told me how AWS needs headcount and i am another headcount. I had applied for what I thought I was a fairly senior role but I was disappointed to know that i was just a headcount.
