Your Amazon Interview Preparation Checklist
Here is what you need to learn
1. How to answer "Why Amazon" interview questions
If you join Amazon, you will quickly realise that there are no "random" people in that organisation. This is by design. Amazon is a very peculiar business with a culture that is not for everyone. This is why your Amazon interviewers will pay special attention to your motivation to join the business. Canned or generic answers won't cut it.
2. How to answer Amazon interview questions based on Leadership Principles
Your non-technical Amazon interview will be based on Amazon's core competencies called the 14 Leadership Principles. Every interview question will ask you to share a situation from your past experience, which will be evaluated against the bar for every Leadership Principle. You will need to learn Amazon's Leadership Principles by heart and be able to anticipate what behaviours the interviewers are looking for. Then you'll need to learn how to focus their attention on the right details to maximise your interview impact.
3. How to frame your Amazon interview responses with a STAR technique
Every response to the Amazon behavioural interview question should be a story. An effective way to tell a professional story is to frame it win a STAR format. In addition to mastering this interview response technique, you will also need to learn how to focus your stories on the right details and exclude content that does not move you closer to the offer.
4. How to interview better than other candidates in the funnel
You can be sure that Amazon's candidate funnel is over-flowing. Hence, unless you are interviewing for a highly specialised role, it's very likely that you'll be competing with other candidates. Everyone with outstanding experience, credentials and pedigree.

How Much is Amazon Interview Bootcamp?
I charge all my coaching clients $200/hr to assess their level of preparation, offer in-depth feedback and share my top insights as an ex-Amazon Hiring Manager. Amazon Interview Bootcamp offers you an equivalent of 9 coaching sessions ($1800 total value).
Even if I priced Amazon Interview Bootcamp at $1800 and helped you land a job with Amazon, your Total Compensation during the first year alone would likely deliver at least 500% ROI on this investment.
