Do you work at Amazon.com? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview?

Any advice for someone trying to get in?

The best way to get a job at Amazon is to get a referral from the inside. Go to LinkedIn, creat a profile and search for "Amazon," you are bound to find somebody who works there as an associate or Area Manager at the FC building you want. Email that person with your interest, and resume, and ask for a referral. Once referred, you increase your chances to get interviewed. That's exactly what I did. After I was referred by somebody from the FC, I received a phone screen interview, followed up by an onsite interview and I was hired two weeks later.

Another, less effective way, is to create a profile on Amazon.com, apply for open position, and prey that Amazon's recruiter will see your resume.

Thank you for this information. I am relocating to Seattle later in 2010, and really want to work at Amazon. I will definatly follow your advice. They have a current Jewelry Merchandiser opening which would be perfect, but it's a little too early....darn. Thanks again!
