It went well. I feel my 15 years experience in Facilities Management and the Fact that I had already worked on the Amazon account was overlooked. I was the Facilities Manager with JLL on the Amazon Account South Region: DEN6, DEN5 ,PDX5, SMF5, LAS5 and LAX5. I helped launch DEN6, SJC9 Fresh site. I watched DEN2 be built and was involved with the DEN5 AR expansion. With the question of having a completed Bachelor’s degree I do not. My College education has spread out over the years with moving from State to State, employment, relocations and family. With my combined semester hours at UTEP,Texas A&M, Colorado Institution of Real Estate where I graduated with an Brokers License which requires a 4 year degree. I do have the class and semester hours that does equal an 4 year Bachelors Degree. My Challenge is to track and transfer all class hours and semester hours into one. In order to have a Broker License in the State of Colorado you must have the equivalent hours of an BA and past the State test which I have. Ive been licensed since 2000. I was employed By JLL as an Facilities Manager in April of 2017 on the Amazon account and have Amazon Leadership Blue Badge referrals. I mentioned to the HR person Ive worked side by side with ELS techs in Denver, and have had Techs come over from DEN2 to assist at DEN5 on SEV2 calls. In short do I have a Diploma? No, I do have a License equivalent of one and the hours accomplished. I mention to HR I can enroll here at a College if need because I have to have 72 class room hours every 3 years continuing education to satisfy the State Of Colorado requirements to maintain in good standing as an Licensed Real Estate Commercial Broker.
With BBM, Soft Services, lease contracts, landlord issues, to parking lot call outs this industrial layer of experience has been an benefit as well.
Thank you for the opportunity.

It is easier to get a job in a Bank, than to be able to finish an applicatiuon on line, nochance to choose shift hours, lack of website information, people from other countries answering to the online chat, Amazon has become a s...hole to even apply to, it might be because they announced $15 an hour, and now they are all trying to minimize new hires???

Interview process is a way to say something different from your resume. After going there if u still say which represents ur qualification or your family info. Then it won't work.
