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!

Do I need to apply online one more time after the employee refer me in Amazon's company?

What about the other companies?

Hi- I have a quick question.
Did you have to apply online or on linked in after you asked the referring employee to send your resume for the job IDs that I was applying to?

I gave the employee my resume and the job IDs that I was applying for.

Thank you

just dont apply on indeed, since amazon doesnt register that, go to thier jobsites, i did it through indeed and now it costed me one of thier position, and the site effectively bans you from that job for 90days, i talked to a customer representative and she said you cant apply on any warehouse jobs, i havnt seen confirmation if thats true for others.
